Yes, there are women who physically abuse men. But the great majority of the time, it’s men who are the abusers. I’ve always liked Johnny Depp, but I assumed his guilt, too. I’m happy to see he might be innocent, but this will not change my tendency to assume the man is the guilty party.

There is another response for this article trying to claim that women are more often the abusers. I suggest the writer of that response look to see who commits 95% of domestic homicides. Hint: it’s not the women.
