YES In terms of physical/emotional abuse.
they just express their grief about it differently, sometimes in ways that are not so apparent. Sometimes he may not want to be seen vunerable and feel ashamed because of society and the view of the 'tough guy' and not being a '*****'.
There have been domestic violence cases where men have been physically injured by their spouse and lied and said they got attack by a stranger in the night down a street. This story actually happened and this is what he told the nurse at the hospital after his wife stabbed him.
They may sometimes lie or remain stoic about their feelings but deep inside it does affect them the same as a woman. I think more men feel internal anger though and more likely to express revenge in a violent manner than a woman, or will resort to it first..... they may retaliate differently or express themselves differently sometimes but I don't think they deep down don't FEEL less....
When it comes to SEXUAL violation....?????????
Other than when they are children...there arent many case studies I imagine? Rape in an all male prison...Im sure is just as violating. Its just the female on male sexual violation, its a pity there isnt much first hand evidense on it?
