Men’s crisis centre?
Ashneel J Prasad, Auckland, NZ
It will be hard for me to provide statistics for men’s abuse cases in Fiji for no men will ever admit to being abused in fear of being ridiculed. When a woman gets abused, it’s a serious matter. Rightly so, but it’s something unusual if a woman or a man abuses a man. If you don’t believe me just go on Facebook or YouTube to see any prank or real video in which a man is abused. About 99 per cent of the comments would be “he deserved it” or “what a loser” or “lol”. Don’t you think men have feelings too or are prone to depression, suicidical thoughts or weak? Or have you made up your mind that men can just implicate havoc on women?
Just because one doesn’t hear or see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Like we can’t see the oxygen or the ozone layer, but it’s still there, isn’t it?
