Domestic abuse is equally as prevalent in same sex relationships as Heterosexual ones, but often the characteristics go undetected.
Domestic abuse in same sex relationships is often psychological rather than physical control. Jealousy, possessive partners, and the threat of being “outed” are common characteristics.
Domestic abuse victims are often convinced that it’s their fault, or there’s no such thing as domestic abuse in same sex relationships.
