Report your abusive wife and get told to "Go home."? That's cold

(The following youtube video is of a man sharing his story of being abused by his partner, a woman. Tread accordingly.)

I saw this over on reddit a few days ago and it hurt a bit.

It hurts to realize that if for some reason my girlfriend were abusing me I could be told to go home when I go to the police for help.

But that is the reality that a lot of men face. The reality that being a man means you can't be abused by a woman and that you don't deserve help.

That's a reality that really needs to change.
