Since VAWA discriminates against male victims and their kids both in its title and in various provisions, such as section 904 that excludes American Indian men, I wonder why Massachusettes Democrat senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her 1/32 Cherokee name,"Lies On Race Box," isn't making a big stink about it.

VAWA discriminates against male victims and their kids. HR-4970 is a much option.

The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states that:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

The Australian Public would like to know how this very important clause of the U.S.A constitution allows the U.S.A Federal government to pass WAVA that deliberately ignore male victims of domestic violence?

2/3 of the victims of violent crime in the USA are men and boys, yet many in the USA Government believe that they are not worthy of the Government's support and protection simply because they were born with a Y Chromosome.

The Australian public is watching and listening to this debate with great concern for the well being of the men and boys of the United States.
