There's been a lot of abusive relationships in my family of seven. Recently my sister went to a shelter for counseling because of physical abuse..I know physical abuse is not the norm, but the counselor there said that one out of three women is in an abusive relationship--at least emotionally and verbally, if not physically, too. I think what she said is probably true. I'm in my thirties

I think this is an interesting question. I don't feel like I'm mistreated by men, but I do see other women being mistreated by their partners. Some are more subtle while others are a lot more obvious.

Coincidentally, a friend of mine shared this article this morning on Facebook. http://www.cracked.com/article_19785_5-ways-modern-men-are-trained-to-hate-women.html

It's about how modern men are trained from an early age to "hate" women. Give it a read and let me know what you think. I agree with a lot of this, and I'm trying to raise my son to NOT be this way.
