If a car and a bicycle collide, the driver of the car is more often than not held to be the one at fault, even if he or she might be the victim, because the car has the greater physical potential to cause damage, and only physical characteristics are ordinarily considered.
The same goes for abuse in relationships. Men are ordinarily considered to be at fault due to their physical characteristics. Women are acutely aware of this and coupled with citing patriarchy and oppression by men, as a weapon of covert emotional abuse, they guilt men into submission so they can dominate them on an ongoing basis; and this form of abuse while rampant is never made an issue of, because men often endure oppressive relationships just for fear of ‘rocking the boat’ of their seeming smooth-saling relationships, because they are too weak to be without the woman.
