Men are victims too

Former 'CSI' star Gary Dourdan's girlfriend was arrested on March 16 after alledgedly assaulting the actor. Maria Asis del Alamo was released the same day on $20,000 bail. Her court date is set for April 6. Several outlets are making light of the situation, being that a man was assaulted by a woman. Statistics show that female to male violence is extremely underreported due in large to situations such as this.

A man is thought of less if he admits to being abused by a woman, it almost takes away his masculinity. Current statistics show that 1 in 7 men are assaulted annually. Some reports show that men can account for up to a third of domestic violence injuries and death. Women often make up for their lack of physical strength by utilizing weapons. Such was the case in the murder of football star Steve McNair by his girlfriend Sahal Kazemi.
