Stuart Simpson, 45, was stabbed in the back numerous times by his jealous wife for taking too long to go shopping, according to Yahoo News. After enduring days in the hospital with punctured lungs, Simpson decided that it was time to end the silence of domestic violence toward men.
“I do think that women get away with domestic violence more than men,” Simpson said. “Unfortunately, there is a stigma against men talking about their emotions so until we crack this, I think men will always struggle with this,” he continued. Simpson is sharing his story with media outlets to end the idea that only women struggle with domestic violence.
He feels that the #MeToo movement should be inclusive of men who are on the receiving end of violence from women.
