    If you are a victim of domestic violence, get out of the situation ASAP. A story I've told here before:

    I was living with a guy, been BFs for 2 years. One day around noon he came into the kitchen and wanted sex from me. I really wasn't in the mood, and we'd had a few bad experiences with midday sex before. Like when his mother, who lived nearby, walked into the house unannounced and caught us going at it. icon_redface.gif

    Well, he just got enraged, and started roughing me up, never done anything like that before, I was stunned. Much bigger and stronger than me, he had me pinned against a corner in the kitchen. I couldn't fight him, but I summoned up my Army "Command Voice" to make him back off. Which he did, but not until he'd left me bruised on both arms.

    That was it for me. I immediately began making plans for moving out of his house. I was gone about a month later, we never slept together again, and I soon met my future partner. I will never be the victim of domestic violence. You step over that line and you've seen the last of me. Other gay men should do the same. Once you allow it to happen it will keep happening.

    Its a terrible act, regardless of the number. At the same time something doesn't feel right about the number 4 million.

    Nearly impossible to prove these numbers

    I agree. Very likely too low. We're talking world-wide here. The US alone has probably about minimum 10 million gay men and women in it.

    They surveyed 115k people and then extrapolated their sample to the entire world..

    They also assumed 2.5% of the world is gay, which is rather baseless. Most of those studies come from Europe and the US, but most of their violence statistics are originating from areas that are not Europe and the US.

    Quite probably, but that doesn't fit the Metta8 worldview that gays are constantly under attack by straight people.

    And so what is YOUR world view, from our favorite straight Right Winger and gay hater here?
