I just did an article today talking about IPV. I learned the phrase when I was doing research on the CDC website. There is a section dealing with domestic violence prevention and they kept using the terminology IPV.
I believe this term is more suited for everybody no matter if you are black, white, straight or gay it does not matter. This phrase really shows that the amount of abuse among both relationship sets are about equal.
Sad is it not. We as a gay community ask for equal rights in everything we possibly can but in a way life has already done that. When it comes to depressions, aggravation, domestic violence, abuse, crime, poverty and all ills we all have the same rights as everybody else and just like jello there is always room for more.
