Andrew Glennon: I Was Told NOT to Report Amber's Abuse Because I'm a Man!

by at .

Domestic violence takes many forms.

Its victims come in all shapes and sizes, and they belong to every demographic under the sun.

The fact remains, however, that most victims of spousal abuse are women, and so, men who have been assaulted by a female partner might be reluctant to report the crime due to the common belief that only women can be victims of violence in the home.

The nightmare scenario for a man who's been abused by a former partner is that he'll be laughed out of court for the simple fact that he's physically capable of defending himself against his smaller ex.

And according to Andrew Glennon, that's basically what happened to him when he reported that he had been abused by Amber Portwood.

Take a look at the latest development in this increasingly bizarre saga:
