This is what I wrote to the Task Force; the more people who contact them has a better chance of them reconsidering ignoring men by including them in the study.

For your evaluation;
- the scope of the review is outdated; international recognition
of male victims of female perpetrated domestic violence is being
recognized and included into studies and data collection
- the data collected will be of no relevance as there is no base
line for comparison; is IPV a high or low number for women?
Without a comparison group for comparison the results can not be
used to determine if the issue is serious or not. The number
will be just a number.
- any exclusion of any similar group provides biased results; whether the exclusion is arrived from the patriarchal myth that women do not wrong or the gender bias man hating political feminist who believe that men can do no right, single data collection demonstrated gender bias and discrimination
- I personally doubt that the US Preventive Services Task Force included the male voice into the discussion; which demonstrates gender bias and gender discrimination associated with third world countries.
- If the Task Force truly interested to better understand IPV it is only reasonable and rational to include all groups into the data collection
- Previous data collection separated groups into whites Afro-American and Hispanics; it also makes study sense to separate collected data into male and female.
- the scope of the data collection demonstrates gender bias of exclusion; the male voice is excluded and the IPV originated by women is excluded.
It is suggested to broaden the scope of the data collection to include male victims of female perpetrated domestic violence IPV by including, rather than excluding, asking men. The number of people being asked remains the same but also includes men into the data collection and a second category pf male gender be included rather than being excluded.

Subject: Question about Gender Bias
Thank you for your question regarding the focus of the recent US Preventive Services Task Force draft recommendation on screening women for intimate partner violence (IPV) and for sharing the information contained in your email. The Task Force recognizes that IPV is a very serious issue for all families and genders, but specific evidence on men and IPV was outside the scope of this review. The Task Force is encouraging that additionalresearch is needed to help get a better understanding of this aspect of IPV.
Again, thank you for your interest in the work of the Task Force.
