Emotional abuse is no less important, experts say - Neighborhood - The District Chronicles

Most of here at Respect-Me-Rules know that verbal abuse is as important as physical. We also know that it is often hard to recognize, especially when we say "At least he doesn't hit me!" We are our own worst enemies when it comes to recognizing that we don't deserve to be put down, called names, ignored and manipulated by the one we love. In any case if you are reading this, you have taken the first is not the second step. It always helps to read more so read this 19 yer old's story.
Emotional abuse is no less important, experts say - Neighborhood - The District Chronicles: "I was 19 years old, a sophomore at Howard University. David was too. We met on Facebook. The first five months, everything went well. But, then he began hanging up on me, walking out on me mid-conversation, ignoring me, and telling me that nothing I did was good enough. He criticized what I wore, how I wore it, where I went, how I looked, and almost everything I did."

i am now accepting verbal abuse for $$$ - YouTube

OK--very interesting you tube video. Watch it--this guy allows people to verbally abuse him for money. Now that is the spirit! Verbal abuse should only be allowed if you are going to profit--if you accept verbal abuse and break your spirit, what is the point--accepting verbal abuse does not make for a good marriage. However, if he had to pay you, it might be worth it. hmmm well maybe not even then!

4,300 men report abuse by women - The Irish Times - Tue, Sep 04, 2012

You know, we don't talk about it often, but men are also verbally abused. I want all of us to be respected--to respect each other. I especially believe that in a relationship where you profess to LOVE your partner, respect should be at the top of the list of how to treat them. Calling your loved one any name, rewriting history, discounting their day and expounding on yours, trying to keep them away from their family or talking to their friends--whether man or woman--that is not love. Respect the one one you're with or don't be with them.

4,300 men report abuse by women - The Irish Times - Tue, Sep 04, 2012: "More than 4,300 men sought support last year from a national charity established for men suffering abuse at the hands of female partners.
Amen Support Services Ltd today published its third annual report, which revealed some 4,303 contacts with the service in 2011.
The Navan, Co Meath-based organisation said the men who contacted it spoke of incidents involving physical, emotional, psychological, verbal and sexual abuse."
