International Attempts to Fake "Domestic Violence"

Note that now Asian countries, as Malaysia below, are attempting to follow in the footsteps of the already overly-neurotic and fragile American feminists.

KOTA KINABALU: A husband telling his wife that she is no longer pretty in an attempt to humiliate her can be classified as an emotional violence offence if amendments are made to the Domestic Violence Act (DVA)1994.

The plan is to amend the DVA for the inclusion of a clause on emotional violence against women.

Currently, they are only protected only against physical abuse, Women's Development Department director-general Datuk Dr Noorul Ainur Mohd Nur said.

She said on Wednesday that the aim for proposing the amendment was to safeguard women both physically and emotionally.

Dr Noorul said emotional violence was a form of abuse that would deeply scar a woman and lower their self-esteem, dignity and self-confidence.

“It could be a case where her husband tells his wife she is ugly"....

It is amazing that men are expected to believe that women are their equals in every way, yet feminism is shot through with such trenchant childishness as this. Are women collectively so weak and fragile that they can be victimized by mere words, when the average seven-year old knows that "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me?"

Note that the law throughout most of the United States is already what the Malaysian government is considering based on this article. The standard for a determination of "domestic violence" in most states is the subjective fear of the woman, which allows for a determination of "violence" if a male "embarrasses you" or "denies your feelings."

The giveaway on the rationale behind such changes is actually provided at the end of the story, when it is noted that there have already been 99 DV filings in the jurisdiction for 2009, while the prior year had had 220 such filings. The eternal attempt to expand the definition of "domestic violence" to the point that it encompasses every conceivable negative behavior is merely an attempt to ratchet up the number of domestic violence filings.

Of course, in the West, an increased number of DV claims translates into more governmental funding for feminist projects, and the transfer of more and more assets to undeserving women in the form of equitable distributions, alimony, and child support payments.
