I’d need to read the study to get the details on this, specifically their methodology. For example, what do they consider “physical aggression?” or “controlling behaviors?” I’m not OK with either. But stomping your feet and demanding your partner buy you a pretty is a far cry from domestic violence. In the US at least, women are far more likely to be staked, injured, and killed by their intimate partners than men are. https://www.speakcdn.com/assets/2497/domestic_violence2.pdf

I write true crime and twisted fiction. I also host a true-crime YouTube channel at www.thedeadlydigest.com.
