Is male on male violence a feminist issue? [View all]

and should women's rights groups get involved in male on male violence?


A while ago i was reading a thread on DU which argued that feminists are ignoring issues of male on male violence while highlighting issues of male-female violence (DV, rape etc that where overwhelmingly the victims are female, though there have been male victims, however male victims too tend to be with male aggressors rather than female aggressors).

To me male-male violence unless it's in a specific are where feminist are already involved (domestic violence, sexual violence ) is not the domain for feminist groups.

So how do other du'ers feel about this? Should male on male violence be part of the feminist discourse and if so how and why?
