"Police Response to Intimate Partner Violence Calls for Service Over-Time: Is There a Difference in the Pattern of Arrests among Same-Sex Partners and Heterosexual Partners?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-05-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1030043_index.html>

Abstract: Despite drastic changes in equality for same-sex couples, little attention to issues other than marriage equality has been paid in the empirical literature. One area that is in need of additional inquiry is the literature on same-sex intimate partner violence. Despite a wealth of literature on intimate partner violence among heterosexual couples, there is a dearth of literature on same-sex intimate partner violence. The absence of literature on same-sex intimate partner violence is concerning particularly in light of the fact that states can tailor domestic violence statutes in ways that exclude same-sex couples and in doing so create unequal treatment by law enforcement when they respond to domestic violence calls for service. Using data from the National Incident Based Reporting System database from 2000 to 2012, this study aims to explore whether similar cases involving same-sex and heterosexual couples result in similar police responses over-time. The aim is to assess whether the social equality impacting same-sex couples has translated to equitable treatment by law enforcement.

Abstract: Prior work has revealed that while women express higher levels of fear of crime the men, men express higher levels of fear for female partners than females do for their male partners (Warr and Ellison 2000; Snedker 2006; Rader 2009). Drawing on prior work, we develop several possible explanations for this phenomenon, including gender role socialization, the shadow of sexual assault, and a finite capacity for total fear. The present work explores these explanations using a large survey of residents from a city with a sizeable gay, lesbian, and bisexual population. The results reveal no differences between same- and opposite-sex couples in fear for oneself or one’s partner. Instead, having a female partner appears to inspire the highest levels of fear for partners regardless of sexual orientation. Those with male partners, on the other hand, have higher levels of fear for themselves, especially among female respondents. Differences in the role of personal and familial victimization by acquaintances and strangers are also explored. Implications for work on fear, gender, and sexual orientation are discussed.

Abstract: Most residential segregation research has focused on racial/ethnic minorities from the majority race/ethnic group in the United States and several other countries. Few analyses have focused on the spatial segregation of sexual minorities from the majority. Our paper we analyzes the segregation of gay and lesbian households from heterosexual households. There is a void in the literature about the extent to which gay and lesbian couples are residentially segregated from heterosexual couples. While there are some studies of “gay spaces” and enclaves, most are case studies of single cities (e.g., San Francisco) or analyses of gay enclaves and political force and activism. We use two dissimilarity measures of residential segregation with the same-sex partnering data from the American Community Surveys for 2008 through 2012 to calculate segregation scores for the 98 MSAs with the largest gay and lesbian populations. We show that there is a sizable amount of homosexual-heterosexual residential segregation. We also show that gay males are more segregated from heterosexuals than are lesbians. Our research contributes to the general literature on residential segregation by focusing on a non-racial minority that has heretofore received very little attention. Additionally, we compare a new measure of residential segregation, the Unbiased D index—specifically designed for dealing with comparisons when the size of one of groups in the areal units of the MSA is decidedly smaller than another of the groups, with the more traditionally used D Index.

Abstract: This study is grounded in theories of information management (Greene, 2009; Petronio, 2002; see also Donovan-Kicken & Caughlin, 2010, 2011; Goldsmith, Miller, & Caughlin, 2007). Patients with a diagnosed heart-related condition (N = 253) completed a survey regarding their perceptions of sharing/not sharing information with a partner about their health condition. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results indicated that (a) most patients report that they share “everything” with their partner, (b) there are significant group differences between patients who report sharing everything with a partner and those who report not sharing certain topics in terms of communication efficacy and patterns of communication (breadth, depth, and frequency) about a heart-related condition, and (c) there are no significant differences between the two groups in terms of sharing specific physical and psychological health information. We discuss the findings and implications of the study for patients, partners, and health care providers.

Abstract: Same-sex intimate partner violence (SSIPV) remains marginalized and understudied in academia and social services. Some previous studies argue that research should be based on gender norms and how they perpetuate the violence between the couple. While helpful, this overlooks the fact that gender in same-sex relationships may be complicated and non-normative. IPV can no longer be typecast in the male as batterer/female as victim binary. Instead, it should be viewed outside of a heteronormative frame without referring to gender as its main explanation. My presentation focuses on how IPV functions in same-sex relationships and what specific issues a curriculum must address.
