joyce maxwell dating - When abuse begins while dating
Other than on the 4th of July when Adeline busted Bobbys face open with a pistol, again drugs and alcohol.
Whenever I speak of male abuse, I am met by disbelief and, even worse, laughter.
We are looked upon as being friends of the perpetrators rather than friends of the victims, because all males are supposed to be evil and bad.
I notice in talking with other shelter staff throughout the state that this attitude prevails in the other shelters, too-men are the perpetrators, women are the victims.
Please if you could help us or recommend how we should proceed or any suggestion they would be greatly appreciated. This is the vision I deal with every single time I close my eyes.
