I am the victim of verbal abuse, a process that we are in counseling for.
I am a man. I was disheartened that one of the top searches for verbal abuse in Google comes from you, and every reference is to the woman being the victim. There is no explanation that this happens all the time from a woman against a man.
As a fellow Christian man, I hope that you will see how this hurts to read. I would like to recommend to you that you change the pronouns to he/she or his/her.
Thank you for your consideration and bless you for your call to this subject.
I am sorry for what is happening to you. I understand your reaction, but perhaps you missed the section in which I say:
Frequently, the perpetrator of verbal abuse is male and the victim is female, but not always. There are many examples of women who are quite verbally abusive. But for the sake of simplicity of pronouns in this radio program, I will often identify the abuser as male and the victim as female.
When I had June Hunt on my radio program last week, she documented that 95% of abuse is male to female. I recognize that abuse, especially verbal abuse, can be done by women.
Obviously, I could change some of the pronouns. [Note from the webservant: and we have done so.] Thank you for your email.
