Special Treatment by Gender

Why is it necessary to distinquish violence by the gender of it's victims? Is violence perptrated against women more deserving of attention than violence against men, (who happen to be the larger group of victims of violence)? No person, regardless of gender, should be subjected to physical violence by another, and there are already laws in place to address that.

It is necessary. Most

It is necessary. Most domestic violence is committed against women. Overwhelmingly.

Please don't try to change the subject.
