Men who exercise “coercive control” over their partners by restricting their personal or financial freedom, or through overt criticism could face up to 14 years in jail under new laws set to be announced by Home Secretary Theresa May this week. Campaigners, who have been arguing for a change in the law to bring emotional abuse into line legally with physical abuse, have praised the proposals as a “major step forward”.
The new law will be introduced as a series of amendments to the Serious Crime Bill, and will alter the legal definition of domestic abuse to include psychological, as well as physical damage. It is expected to pass into law in the new year.
May has been attempting to find a way to introduce these proposals for some time now. In 2011, she described coercive control as “a complex pattern of abuse using power and psychological control over another — financial control, verbal abuse, forced social isolation. These incidents may vary in seriousness and may be repeated over time.”
Feminists love to call out men as vicious abusers every chance they get, and often perpetuate the myth that all domestic violence victims are women, despite the fact that every reputable source says otherwise.
Even if this law wasn’t creating a sexist double standard based on a feminist myth, it would still be complete load of shit. There is far too much subjectivity in this issue to even attempt to make it a law. Making it a law that only protects one half of abuse sufferers is both irresponsible and the definition of oppression.
What’s scary about Theresa May, is that not only is she the Minister for Women and Equality in Britain, she’s also the Home Secretary. In other words, the person who gets to decide what’s politically correct, is also the head of Britain’s entire Intelligence arm. If that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, it should.
This woman, who’s approach to equality is to give women preferential treatment, is the same woman who is trying to destroy your right to free speech in Britain.
If Britain allows this woman’s radical ideals to make federal law, it’s only a matter of time before other countries follow suit.
