Remove any reference to gender of either victim or perpetrator in any legislation,particularly that relating to domestic violence.

Why is this idea important?

Why should there be a distinction?

Is a woman stalking or attacking a man in some way "less bad" than vice versa.

I am aware of the statistics on these issues,and the contoversy surrounding the validity of those statistics.

I am also concerned about the effect upon men,particularly youngsters,of their gender being singled out as perpetrators,and the effect upon women,of being categorised as victims.

One law should apply to all.
