    Yes everyone is 'entitled to their opinion' - but opinions can be wrong and when your opinion reaches a national audience you probably should do more than bleat "won't somebody think of the men" and imply that women who are killed by their partners are ultimately to blame.

    Agreed her views are insulting and not accurate however it's surprising how many people actually share them.

    Domestic violence against women and children are an epidemic in our country, you only have to pick up the newspaper to see headlines of the murder of woman and children being reported every other day. It turns my stomach.

    The answer, I don't know but as mothers we must raise our children that it is NEVER ok to hurt and hit others, we also need to ensure our children are NOT raised in that environment. We need to make it much much easier for victims of domestic violence to leave the abusers. We need to not support the actions of people who hurt and bully their family members.

    I left a violent marriage years ago, there were many many hurtful times to endure when I left but I will never forget how his family completely cut me ( and the children) I would have accepted the family message being we still love you but what you do is wrong ( to him) However, they treated him like the injured party, it was so very wrong and was devastating to me at the time and made me feel more humiliated and ashamed.

    There will be plenty of women reading along on threads like this one not participating but feeling shame because they are in an abusive relationship, please please please do whatever you need to, to get you and your children out. Break the cycle.

    she makes my blood boil

    it is victim blaming at its worst ... and perpetuates the theme that women are responsible for removing themselves from DV situations. NO !!!!! No No No No No No

    It makes me so sad that society continues to accept this.

    and that people like Miranda Devine continue to write cr@p like this and get it printed

    then again - that is about the level of the Daily Telegraph (who printed the column in the first place)

    13 reasons Buddy and Jesinta should postpone their wedding

    honestly - he has admitted to mental health issues, so they shouldnt get married?

    This woman is just a dead set oxygen thief. This comment made me wild:

    "Poverty is the cause of domestic violence, the desperate chaos of the underclass, played out in welfare dependency, mental illness, alcohol and drug abuse, especially psychosis-inducing ice.

    I just can't get over lack of understanding she has over this issue. Poverty is NOT the cause of DV. Patriarchal thinking and a society that covertly justifies abuse is.

    Wealthy/middle class people suffer just as much DV, they just have the money to stay under the radar and use private services. They also suffer drug abuse it's just statistically it's more prescription drugs than illicit. So tired of the stereotypes

    Default *trigger warning* Miranda Devine blaming poor women having kids for DV

    I just can't understand the victim blaming that persists in our society.

    There is one reason why DV exists. Men (in the main) abuse their partners. End of story. Anything else (socioeconomics, multiple partners, poverty) is just noise.

    anything less than saying as a country beating up your spouse is not on is just acceptance dressed up as condescension.

    I hate this woman. Always have.

    What an idiot. Domestic violence is classless and men from all walks of life are the perpetuators ...seriously question if some people have any intellect at all.

    She clearly has never been in an abusive relationship. And I hope none of her friends are and go to her for support. What a revolting view.

    She clearly has no understanding of DV at all. How the men cut their partners off from any support they might have. How they make it financially difficult to leave. How even if they do leave, there's not much in the way of support or services out there to provide help and support to restart your life thanks to Abbott cutting funds and services.

    Poverty is not the problem. Women are not the problem. Men thinking it's perfectly fine to bash the sh!t out of women are the problem.

    Yet another reason to ignore this imbecile. And the telegraph as well.

    ETA - for those who don't know Sydney, eastern suburbs is very affluent. Home to the packers, Malcolm Turnbull.
