Girls Who Beat Boys (Dolly Magazine)

April 5, 2011

We all know it’s wrong for guys to hit girls but what happens when the roles are reversed? DOLLY uncovers the scary reality of girls who beat their boyfriends.

Imagine feeling so terrified that if you say the wrong thing, speak to another guy or wear something your boyfriend deems inappropriate, he’ll start punching into you. What would it be like to constantly feel that you’re walking on eggshells around him? While many girls face this scary reality, we’re less likely to hear about young men suffering the same abuse from their girlfriends. But the truth is, it does happen. Statistics show that 22 per cent of those abused within relationships last year were males. And frighteningly, because most guys in abusive relationships are too ashamed or embarrassed to come forward, this statistic stands as a mere estimation, prompting the idea that there are even more male victims out there.
