Help for Battered Men
Rhiannon3 describes itself as "A Comprehensive site on the Web for Women, Men and Personal Growth - created for the Heart, the Soul and YOU." "The victims of domestic violence are infants, children, adults, and the elderly regardless of age, gender, or sexual orientation. There is little real disagreement with that statement." "It is the purpose of this site not to paint all men as the enemy. It is our purpose to empower both men and women to do the right thing. And the right thing is to speak out against domestic violence."

Note: If you have been the victim of domestic violence, please e-mail me and tell me about it. What happened? Did you tell anyone about it? Why or why not? Did you seek help? Why or why not? If you did seek help, did you get it? May we publish your story here? We'll do it anonymously, unless you give specific permission to use your name and/or e-mail address.
Know a man who may be battered? Print out this page and give it to him. Often, it'll be enough to get him to talk to you about it -- if not right away, perhaps in a bit. And talking to another man about it is the first step in healing -- in survival.
Remember: TV star and comedian Phil Hartman never talked about his marital problems, either, except to joke about having to leave the house when his wife was mad. He told everyone the marriage was wonderful -- as so many men do.
