Duluth and the VAWA: "Power and Control"

(Update 10th April; I noticed that "The University of Abuse Hurts Initiative" had altered it's web page.

Fortunately the wayback machine saved the day!)

It had been pointed out years ago that feminists had announced that if a man says no to sex - they call it 'withholding' - that it should be classed as domestic abuse, as if it was the same as a fist to the face. If a man asks for sex - the same, of course!


Now, I'd like to claim the men's rights movement forced them to retreat from this position, but to be honest, I don't know. The fact they don't even acknowledge the back-flip is very '1984' of them.


Text of "Sexual violence":

Examples of sexual violence include:

  1. discounting the partner's feelings regarding sex;
  2. criticizing the partner sexually;
  3. touching the partner sexually in inappropriate and uncomfortable ways;
  4. withholding sex and affection;
  5. always demanding sex;
  6. forcing partner to strip as a form of humiliation (maybe in front of children), to witness sexual acts, to participate in uncomfortable sex or sex after an episode of violence, to have sex with other people; and using objects and/or weapons to hurt during sex or threats to back up demands for sex.

What does it regard as violence?

"using a look"

How do you prove you didn't give someone a look? How can that even be objectively defined?

"threatening to leave"

According to VAWA, a man cannot leave a woman. Of course, a woman can leave a man at any time. Feminism is for everyone - so long as you are female!

"making her feel guilty"

"Honey, I wish you wouldn't hit me in front of the children"

"How dare you! That's emotional abuse! I'll hit you any time and place I want, because I am a woman and the context is different!

(yes, they really do argue that, I'll get back to that later)

"Making her think she's crazy"

Some people ARE crazy. Telling someone they need to take their meds is common sense - not bloody violence! Having a mentally ill spouse can be horrible - but as we see here, men are not allowed to either leave, or warn their wives that they are in need of help!

"Using jealousy to justify actions"
"Honey, I got angry because you were flirting with other people.. I'd rather you didn't.. I'll have to get a divorce if you continue"

"Are you slut-shaming me, fuck boi? 'Cause I'll fuck whoever I want! Being jealous is abuse! Leaving me is abuse!"

"You've gone mad!"

"An' that's abuse too! I'm calling the cops! I have this wheel handy just for them!"

"Saying she caused it"


"She... stabbed me!"

"Oh, now you is saying I caused it! Patriarchy! Raaaape!"

Why was the Power and Control Wheel created?

In 1984, staff at the Domestic Abuse Intervention Project (DAIP) began developing curricula for groups for men who batter and victims of domestic violence.

It is a frequent claim of feminism that it does not hate men, that it in fact works for men as well as women.

Know a movement by what it does, not what it says.

What does feminism do?

It focuses on men as villains and women as damsels in distress.

It completely erases lesbian domestic violence, despite it being more frequent. It erases male victims as irrelevant. It promotes the agenda that masculinity is toxic and femininity is martyred.

The CDC’s 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, released again in 2013 with new analysis, reports in its first-ever study focusing on victimization by sexual orientation that the lifetime prevalence of rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner was 43.8 percent for lesbians, 61.1 percent for bisexual women, and 35 percent for heterosexual women, while it was 26 percent for gay men, 37.3 percent for bisexual men, and 29 percent for heterosexual men (this study did not include gender identity or expression).

These studies refute the myths that only straight women get battered, that men are never victims, and that women never batter (source)
Going back to their document...
We wanted a way to describe battering for victims, offenders, practitioners in the criminal justice system and the general public.

If they genuinely wanted to do that, they would have gotten both sides of the story - they would have had to listen to the hated men, however. Of course, that was repugnant to them.

Over several months, we convened focus groups of women who had been battered.
Men's voices were to be silenced. They could only contaminate the purity of their propaganda.
We listened to heart-wrenching stories of violence, terror and survival. After listening to these stories and asking questions, we documented the most common abusive behaviors or tactics that were used against these women. The tactics chosen for the wheel were those that were most universally experienced by battered women.
They began with assumptions, then listened to anecdotes and found ways to turn those stories into something that confirmed their biases every time.

Of course, at some point, someone might have blinked - wondered why, if they really were working for everybody, they only seemed to be working for one side and against another...

An excuse would have to be prepared.

Why isn’t the Power and Control Wheel gender neutral?

Isn't that a good question?
The Power and Control Wheel represents the lived experience of women who live with a man who beats them.
What does 'lived experience' mean?

They asked these women if they were innocent, and the men guilty; the women said yes. So it had to be true, by "Listen and Believe"!

It does not attempt to give a broad understanding of all violence in the home or community but instead offers a more precise explanation of the tactics men use to batter women.

It's all about misdirection.

"Don't focus on what I'm doing! Look at the bunny! Look over there"!

How do they know all the women are telling the truth? People lie.They tell half-truths. They misremember things. They re-write mental histories to put themselves in a better light (confabulation).

Men and women hurt each other - and often women start the fights.

Large epidemiological studies have demonstrated that domestic violence is most commonly reciprocal and that when only one partner is violent there is an excess of violent women.

Whitaker et al,2 in a study of 14 000 young US couples aged 18-28 years, found that 24% of relationships had some violence and half of those were reciprocally violent. In 70% of the non-reciprocally violent relationships women were the perpetrators of violence.

Reciprocal violence appears to be particularly dangerous, leading to the highest rate of injury (31.4%). This may be because reciprocal violence is more likely to escalate.
The International Dating Violence Study3 found that among students at 31 universities worldwide male and female students had similar rates of physically assaulting a partner (25% of men and 28% of women at the median university).

There was parity for perpetrating severe assaults

(used a knife or gun, punched or hit partner with something that could hurt, choked partner, slammed partner against a wall, beat up partner, burned or scalded partner on purpose, kicked partner) - 9% of male and female students at the median university.

For severe injury (passed out, required medical attention or broke a bone) the perpetration rate was higher for males (median rate 3.1% by men and 1.2% by women).
A review of 62 empirical studies of female-perpetrated intimate partner violence4 found rates of physical violence of 4-79% among adolescent girls, 12-39% among female college students and 13-68% among adult women.

The researchers concluded that a significant proportion of females seeking help for victimisation are also perpetrators of intimate partner violence

and that those who treat battered women may need to consider addressing the perpetration of violence with their female clients. (source)

We keep our focus on women’s experience because the battering of women by men continues to be a significant social problem--men commit 86 to 97 percent of all criminal assaults and women are killed 3.5 times more often than men in domestic homicides1.

Note the reasoning. More men are arrested than women - therefore men must be responsible for domestic violence. But the men are arrested for criminal assaults - not DV - so this only makes sense if you assume that men being arrested in one crime automatically means they must commit all other crimes.

Men are innately wicked - it couldn't be that those assaults occur because men fight each other in traditional competition, for example. In many species, male on male violence is lethal - yet they do not treat the females of their species the same way! Why would they automatically assume men would batter women as they batter other men?

Because masculinity is toxic. Were you not paying attention in your gender studies classes?

There are stories the VAWA doesn't want you to hear*.

If you're a criminal defendant, it may help—a lot—to be a woman. At least, that's what Prof. Sonja Starr's research on federal criminal cases suggests.

Prof. Starr's recent paper, "Estimating Gender Disparities in Federal Criminal Cases," looks closely at a large dataset of federal cases, and reveals some significant findings.

After controlling for the arrest offense, criminal history, and other prior characteristics


"men receive 63% longer sentences on average than women do," and "[w]omen are…twice as likely to avoid incarceration if convicted."

This gender gap is about six times as large as the racial disparity that Prof. Starr found in another recent paper. (source)
So feminists get you coming and going. They know the courts are biases against men - and use the result of that bias to justify further bias against men!

Imagine if they did the same to black people - they would be denounced - rightfully - as a racist organisation. But because they attack men in the name of defending the damsels in distress, they can manipulate emotions.


Men, mostly, sacrifice themselves and other men to protect women.

Feminists use that benign sexism as a weapon against all men.

When women use violence in an intimate relationship, the context of that violence tends to differ from men.

Immediately the doublethink is fired up. When men hit women, it's a different context. It's because they are bad. When women hit men, it can only be because

the men fucking deserve it.

First, men’s use of violence against women is learned and reinforced through many social, cultural and institutional avenues
Feminists never provide evidence for this. The counter evidence - that men are taught to defend women - never bothers them.

Men are bad.

Fuck you and your facts.

When a man hits a woman - people respond to protect the woman. When a woman hits a man?



at the man.

while women’s use of violence does not have the same kind of societal support


"Secondly, many women who do use violence against their male partners are being battered. "

The truth, as I showed before, is the reverse. She hits first. He hits back. The cycle continues.

Men hit harder. It's the women who is usually hurt worse, or even killed. It will be the man who is hauled away.

Their violence is primarily used to respond to and resist the controlling violence being used against them.
Of course, women cannot be


for hitting men. They are but damsels in distress - not the equals of men!

On the societal level, women’s violence against men has a trivial effect on men compared to the devastating effect of men’s violence against women.

How the hell does that even work? If DV is reciprocal, both parties are physically and emotionally injured. The impact on children present is appalling.

And can you imagine what it's like to live next to a couple who are screaming and throwing things at each other - only to see them make it up time and again - until one night it goes too far and she's stabbed him through the gut, or he knocked her and the fall was enough to crush her skull?

DV affects everyone.

And there are no excuses for women that don't apply to men.

Battering in same-sex intimate relationships has many of the same characteristics of battering in heterosexual relationships, but happens within the context of the larger societal oppression of same-sex couples.
More fucking excuses.

Stop treating people differently on the basis of their sex.

Stop treating people differently on the basis of their sexuality.

Stop being a pack of fucking bigots!

"Can I use or adapt the wheels?

Our wheels are


Why would they copyright something they believe will stop violence if only people are aware of it?

Copyright is about the control of information to maximise profits - why would they want to control it, and how do they profit from it?

You know what? Companies patent medicines.. but the justification is the millions and millions of dollars it takes to develop the medications in the first place - and even then there are provisions for the patent to be ignored or just waived.

How many dollars do you think this chart cost them? Six? Seven? Yet feminists claim that DV is one of the most terrible issues women world wide have to face!


The answer is, of course, those sociopaths - feminists in the DV industry who would actually lose a lot of money if DV was solved - or if governments started questioning this model. Remember: this is plugged by feminists worldwide, even in the UN, through celebs like Emma Watson.

If people start to think - they might
see just what the fabric of that model is made of.

How is the Power and Control Wheel used?

The wheel is used in many settings and can be found in manuals, books, articles, and on the walls of agencies that seek to prevent domestic violence. It has even been seen by millions on national television shows and soap operas!
Many women’s groups use the Power and Control Wheel. Battered women can point to each of the tactics on the wheel and clearly explain how these behaviors were used against them. They are able to see that they are not alone in their experience and more fully understand how their batterer could exert such control over them.
It's all about "Power and Control", all right!

They own the DV industry. Everything in it it is controlled and interpreted by them, like the medieval priests who held the Bible in Latin and burnt anyone alive who let the commoners read it.

  • The wheel is also used in counseling and education groups for men who batter to help group participants identify the tactics they use.

Confess your sins! Repent! Denying your guilt will mean the punishment must continue!


The wheel is also used in a variety of settings to describe battering. For instance,

in training for law enforcement or prosecutors

, the wheel provides an explanation for why a victim might return to an abusive spouse or why victim is refusing to cooperate in a criminal prosecution.

in training for law enforcement or prosecutors.."

That is so chilling. The indoctrination of supposedly fair agents of impartial justice into this misandric hate cult. They will learn to "Listen and Believe". They will have faith that men are always guilty, women are always innocent, and it's just a matter of proving the guilt of the man.

  1. I salute you for all the work you have put into this.

    I want to share something with you. The Wikipedia page of the Duluth model says this:

    Its proponents counter that the Duluth model is effective and makes best use of scarce resources. However, Ellen Pence herself has written,

    "By determining that the need or desire for power was the motivating force behind battering, we created a conceptual framework that, in fact, did not fit the lived experience of many of the men and women we were working with. The DAIP staff [...] remained undaunted by the difference in our theory and the actual experiences of those we were working with [...] It was the cases themselves that created the chink in each of our theoretical suits of armor. Speaking for myself, I found that many of the men I interviewed did not seem to articulate a desire for power over their partner. Although I relentlessly took every opportunity to point out to men in the groups that they were so motivated and merely in denial, the fact that few men ever articulated such a desire went unnoticed by me and many of my coworkers. Eventually, we realized that we were finding what we had already predetermined to find."

    The source of this paragraph is supposed to be: Ellen L. Pence - Coordinating Community Responses to Domestic Violence: Lessons from Duluth and beyond [Chapter 2: Some Thoughts on Philosophy / Page 29–30]

    I haven't been able to find a free PDF of the book or anything like that, so I can't fact-check this, but it seems legit. If I had extra money to burn, I'd buy the book myself, but I'm not in that position yet.


Please try to avoid logical fallacies!
