California man-haters

Mike McCormick and Glenn Sacks write:
California law defines domestic violence as "the infliction or threat of physical harm against...female intimate partners." AB 2051 refers to domestic violence victims only as "battered women." By defining domestic violence as something only experienced by women, both existing law and AB 2051 exclude male victims and their children from receiving state-funded domestic violence services, including shelter, hotel arrangements, counseling and legal services.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, men comprise over 35% of all domestic violence victims. A meta-analytic review of 552 domestic violence studies published in the Psychological Bulletin found that 38% of the physical injuries in heterosexual domestic assaults are suffered by men.
Domestic violence law is just a way for feminists to complain about men.
