Skip to comments.Two-Parent Households Can Be Lethal: Domestic Violence and Two-Parent Households (NY Slimes Barf)
Posted on 06/22/2014 8:51:49 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
AFTER spending two years studying services for domestic violence survivors, I was surprised to realize that one of the most common barriers to womens safety was something I had never considered before: the high value our culture places on two-parent families.

The stupid ... it burns! GAAAAAAH!
Ya, I did a 40 year study and domestic violence among people who live alone is very low also....
I want my grant money NOW!
Yeah, you never see anything about children killed or abused by momma’s boyfriend, do you?
NY SLIME MEGA Barf and FART
The author, Sara Shoener, is very clever. I’ll bet she’s planning to file for disability on the grounds of insanity, and she’ll use this article to prove her case.
Sara Shoener, Research DirectorGoogle her name for more interesting and inspiring facts and information.
Dr. Shoener has been advocating for and conducting research on effective approaches to reduce violence against women for over ten years. She has experience conducting focus groups, surveys, needs assessments, program evaluations, and survivor and attorney/advocate interviews related to anti-violence projects.
A Truman Scholar and AAUW American Dissertation Fellow, Sara received her DrPH in Sociomedical Sciences and her MPH in Health Promotion from Columbia University.
Looking at the whole spectrum of living arrangements, a married household headed by the mom & dad of the children, is the safest for both women and children; a cohabitation household is the worst.
Sara is currently the Project Manager for a program funded through the Department of Justices Office on Violence against Women called the Consumer Rights for Domestic Violence Survivors Initiative. They provide training and consultation to attorneys and advocates who work on behalf of survivors of domestic violence, particularly to enhance their consumer rights advocacy efforts.
I smell a lot of government grants.
” mommas boyfriend”
You mean “boyfriendS”.
What a total pile of manure this article is!
I can’t wait for the slimes to fold.
I stopped reading the NY Times twenty years ago and have never regretted my decision. This mouthpiece shills for the LGBT crowd and male-absent single motherhood. Anything to destroy the traditional family and to trivialize the importance of traditional fatherhood.
Great point and so true. Somebody needs to do another “study”. LOL!
All that is good and right and God-ordained is excruciatingly painful to the demonic.
With all due respect to Sara, her article is too slick to use for t.p.
these liberal scientist/doctor brainiacs,they love to diagnose and remedy symptoms of a problem, not the problem itself. Understandably that is a far more lucrative gig, keep unclogging the drain, but never fix the plumbing.
She just graduated THIS MONTH. I guess this was her thesis or something.
I still think it is crazy how many women stay with their abusers. I wonder if men stay with abuse as much, but I don’t think we are allowed to suggest that a woman who stays with her abuser is at a higher risk of abuse, because that would be blaming the woman.
It’s like if a woman never learned how to swim, and then went out in a boat into a lake, and jumped out of the boat, and then drowned, you could never say that the woman probably should not have gone out in the boat or jumped out, because we aren’t allowed to tell a woman what she can and cannot do.
More interestingly though, is that the actual studies show that single motherhood is the greatest factor in abuse — women in married relationships are abused at a far lower rate than single women, and single mothers fair the worst. Apparently, guys who will put up with some other guy’s kid just to hang around a woman are not always the nicest guys, and conversely I imagine women who feel trapped by having a kid and no father are likely to think they need to put up with any guy who will tolerate them.
She is correct in large part, if you realize that a “two-parent household” in her article means primarily a single mother who slept with a sleezeball but hangs around because he fathered a child with her.
Single mothers suffer the highest rate of abuse, mostly by intimate partners, sometimes the father of one or more children, and also often by other boyfriends.
The headline appears to try to lie to the reader, making them think “traditional family”. A married woman with child is the least likely to suffer abuse.
Women get abused by boyfriends, and the more the woman feels unworthy, the more likely they are to date sleezeballs who will abuse them.
Truth is some people are dangerous to live with, people should choose their mates wisely. I think adults and children are safer in a two parent traditional household if both adults are sane and solid. People who live with others, whether roommates, hanging out, hooking up or whatever it is called now- marriage, gay, straight- be sure you know who you are letting in your door. I think too many don’t want to live alone and are willing to allow anyone in the door so they won’t be alone. I have never minded being alone, so I don’t know where they are coming from. I lived alone many times and though I have been married over 30 years I still have no problem being alone.
