    Study: Boys, Not Girls, More Often Victims of Dating Violence

    They may all be sugar and spice — but “everything nice” is debatable with a new study showing that girls are more likely than boys to be the perpetrators of teen dating violence. It’s data that most will find counterintuitive, but it accords with earlier research indicating that women are more likely than men to initiate domestic violence.
    As for the recent study, Study Finds reports that
    recently published research indicates boys are more likely to report being victims of dating violence committed by partners who hit, slap or push them.
    Researchers with the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) conducted a longitudinal study of dating violence. While reports of physical abuse went down over time, they say there is a troubling gender-related trend.
    Five percent of teens reported physical abuse from their dating partners in 2013, down from 6 percent in 2003. But in the last year, 5.8 percent of boys reported dating violence compared to 4.2 percent of girls.
    ... Researchers looked at data collected from three British Columbia Adolescent Health Surveys conducted over a 10-year timespan. Participants were 35,900 students in grades 7 through 12 who were in dating relationships.

    This problem may only worsen with the familiarity that breeds contempt, as people enter into more serious couples’ relationships. As Sophie Goodchild reported in a 2000 Guardian piece on a study showing that women were actually more likely to initiate domestic violence:
    The study ... is based on an analysis of 34,000 men and women by a British academic. Women lash out more frequently than their husbands or boyfriends, concludes John Archer, professor of psychology at the University of Central Lancashire and president of the International Society for Research on Aggression.
    ... Professor Archer analysed data from 82 US and UK studies on relationship violence, dating back to 1972. He also looked at 17 studies based on victim reports from 1,140 men and women.... [H]e said that female aggression was greater in westernised women because they were “economically emancipated” and therefore not afraid of ending a relationship.
    While this may be a factor, it’s neither the only nor main one. First, as Study Finds also informs on the teen-violence study, “‘It could be that it’s still socially acceptable for girls to hit or slap boys in dating relationships,’ says lead author Catherine Shaffer, a PhD student with SFU.” She points out that research on adolescents in other nations found the same results.
    Actually, though, there’s no “could be” about it. Despite the ongoing assault on tradition, boys are still raised with the idea that “you don’t hit girls.” But there was never a no-hitting-boys proscription; moreover, feminism has eliminated the corresponding social constraint, “Girls don’t hit at all.”

    Men can never understand women.

    Women understand women however.

    And they hate each other.

    Maybe the only way forward is for men and women to demonize each other. It feels lately that that is the trend.
