    Its a valid question. A law based on one gender and not the other is a discriminatory law. And no law should ever be discriminatory. And a woman abusing her husband does happen. Yeah, its rare comparatively speaking, but it does happen.

    The original linked article, which pretty much nobody bothered to read it seems, clearly states that the law applies equally in the other direction as well.

    Having said that, I wouldn't put money on it being applied equally.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yeah I saw that. Problem is....I don't believe it.

    Although the new domestic abuse offence is mainly designed to protect wives and girlfriends from male partners who intimidate them, it will apply equally to men being targeted by women. The Home Office said 16 per cent of men admit to being victims of domestic abuse during their lifetimes compared with 30 per cent of women, according to research.
    Sorry but when they say that "it is mainly designed to protect wives and girlfriends from male partners" you just have this gut feeling that the male half of that law was just put in there for appeasement and will rarely if ever be applied.

    I agree with your assessment 100%, and almost said the same thing.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
