“Has he ever trapped you in a room and not let you out? Has he ever raised a fist as if he were going to hit you? Has he ever thrown an object that hit you or nearly did? Has he ever held you down or grabbed you to restrain you? Has he ever shoved, poked, or grabbed you? Has he ever threatened to hurt you? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then we can stop wondering whether he’ll ever be violent; he already has been.”
Children who are victims of domestic violence more often than not grow up to violent and also become abusers themselves.
From their experience and observation, they feel dominance over another human being especially women is an exercise of their power and control over others.
They feel in control when they subject their partners under their tyranny. I don’t think there is any one particular class of men that are abusive. It cuts across all walks of life – classes, religions, occupations, races, lifestyle….. everything. These men are most times of the opinion that women are meant to be subdued.
