Thanks Trom. The above story is concerning as it is yet another area where the DV "industry" is colonising an issue (as with the push to include teen relationships in the DV industry". Abuse of older people is a problem. A complex one in which one of the dynamics is that many elderly wives find themselves caring for much older and frailer husbands. Thus in general the cases seen at the moment are fairly evenly spread. I see this report moves the argument to one of the Gender Feminist agenda in whic no men can be abused.
