Women can be verbal bastards, just like men

I don't know about this one...

Physical abuse, I concede that there are many more women victims than men - simply due to the inherent physical differences between men and women. Having said that, I've seen small-built men with some pretty big women sporting all sorts of bruises, scratches and pinch marks.

Verbal abuse...

I need a whole lot more convincing that verbal abuse is a predominantly male-perpetrated crime as this ad would have you believe.

If never ending nagging, put-downs, criticism, snide remarks and sarcasm can be classified as verbal abuse, I reckon the fist could just as likely be coming from the woman's mouth.

I do have to comment on your implication that small-sized men can be physically abused by big women.

It has nothing to do with their size. There are just some men who would never beat a woman, not even in self-defence.

Though I don't know what kind of woman slaps her man around to make her point.

Verbal abuse? I don't know. I've seen more of it coming from men. But that's just my personal observation.
