About the use of pronouns on safeconnections.org:
According to the most comprehensive national study by the U.S. Department of Justice on family and relationship violence, the vast majority of domestic violence and sexual assault victims are female, and the vast majority of perpetrators are male. For that reason, feminine pronouns are primarily used on this site when referring to victims of violence, and male pronouns are primarily used when referring to perpetrators of violence. This should not detract from our understanding that, in some cases, the perpetrator might be female while the victim is male or of the same gender. All victims are deserving of compassion and services to address the violence in their lives.
