It happens to 'a certain type of person'
It can be thought that domestic abuse happens to a certain ‘type' of person. This type may be based on a socioeconomic status, a level of inner strength or confidence, religious or cultural background etc.
This is not the case.
Domestic abuse can affect anyone regardless of their race and or ethnicity, colour, religion, socioeconomic status, sex, gender, sexual orientation or level of confidence and inner strength.
