Good question. Some women's rights group getting a bit aggressive with the numbers?
Thanks for the best answer.
That seems ludicrous.
I agree with you.....many women do not seek help for their injuries..
its too sad... sometimes we quote records and statistics, and they are meaningless... theres a hidden world of abuse out there..
I think it's 22-35% of the women married to NFL players.
Ooooo. You win.
Maybe to check out the damage they did?
Where did you read or hear this? Who said it? Can you track it back to its source? And where did you get the smaller stat?
I worked for an ER and women would come in with 'bruises' that were categorized as 'accidents'.....They refused to report their husbands to the ER personnel so that 'debunking' really isn't a good indicator or the violence women endure. I knew of a woman who got the living crap beat out of her during FB season but she WOULD NOT report her AH husband because she 'loved him'.
That number is horse crap, probably numbers taken from a small sampling. DV isn't funny. People with agendas always skew numbers to get their cause looked at. Here's a number that you can try to look up? DV cases go UP after the superbowl....way up.
I guess what I saw in the ER was special effects?
Yes, I worked for an ER for 9 years. Back in the day, women would come in and lie about their injuries, Now? Personnel are told to report suspected DV, so women won't come in for fear of getting the cops involved.
I was probably on penis when I was at work, extrapolating reported numbers is quite different than seeing a woman show up with her face smashed in and bruises on her arms.
No, that number is horsecrap, I stated that before... It is miniscule because of the reporting that HAS to be done. 22-35 is probably a number from a woman's group that took the numbers from one ER after the super bowl - the only people that show up are the drunks that fight, get into car wrecks or fall down and a few DV victims. So If you get 8 people in the ER a few hours AFTER the game and and two are DV cases, you get your 25% number.
You can massage any numbers to get a result you want?
