The Surprising Truth About Women and Violence

The Surprising Truth About Women and Violence | TIME

Among the surprises (to me): "The February CDC study found that, over their lifetime, 44% of lesbians had been physically assaulted by a partner (more than two-thirds of them only by women), compared to 35% of straight women, 26% of gay men, and 29% of straight men." If I did the math correctly, that means 29% of lesbians have been physically assaulted by female partners, the same as the percentage of straight men who have been assaulted by women.
