  1. I wanted to send my brother something showing examples of ways his wife is abusing him. And on your wheel you have “using male privilege”. What about the men that are psychologically abused by women every single day? What about using female privilege against a man? Like slapping him in the face and he can do nothing to defend himself because he is a man? I’ve seen this with friends. I’ve seen this with family members, time and time again. My brother is a good and gentle soul, he will see something like that and feel terrible Because of her abuse and gaslighting. I’m so frustrated that I can’t find something for my brother.

    Just because this says “male privilege” doesn’t mean that those things are the only things that go in that box. Women who are manipulative can use similar tactics to their advantage. This wheel can help your brother regardless of what’s in it. If he is experiencing just one or two of these categories, he is a victim of domestic violence. He doesn’t need to experience them all.

    Stand up for your brother if he is being victimized – men are less likely to come forward, and people are less likely to believe them, as statistically speaking women are the victims.
