LETTER TO EDITOR: Why isn't nagging seen as form of DV?

DOMESTIC violence is a big issue at the moment but I think it is a one-sided look at the problem.

There was a domestic violence day at the Rockhampton Library before Christmas where you could talk one-on-one with specialists.

I asked the lady if verbal abuse was a form of domestic violence, and why nagging wasn't classed as domestic violence.

The lady replied that nagging was not even considered in domestic violence.

From a male way of thinking, do we have to somehow take no notice of nagging and the PMT cycle?

The lady also said that sometimes she gave her hubby a bit of a hard time when these things were happening.

I think women should at least bring this into the equation if men are to be blamed for domestic violence.
