Victimology Essay

Explain the characteristics of gay and lesbian intimate partner abuse.

There is extensive literature documenting the reluctance of female victims of heterosexual intimate partner violence to report these incidents to the police. There is significantly less information about the decision making processes of victims of same-sex intimate partner violence. Thoroughly discuss explanations for the failure/reluctance of gay/lesbian victims to report domestic violence victimization to police.

Your essay is to be well organized and written. It should be 1200 - 1500 words in length.

Be sure to cite relevant information from course materials, using APA format.
