I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Dear CBC: Finally an article of balance from the Liberal Left Propaganda Machine

Dear CBC:

You have finally published an article that clearly shows Intimate Partner Violence is not a gendered issue but something far more complex. You are starting to act like a real news outlet and not a propaganda machine for Feminist mythology that all men are abusers and all women victims.

Men do not report abuse for a variety of reasons many of which are consistent with social mores. Men are stronger so how can he be a victim forgetting of course that weapons are great equalizers. Women use these tools with great force and do cause injuries that seldom get reported as DV. Did you see Tiger Woods chivalrous interview. He made a specific point of denial his wife clubbed him even though the most logical conclusion is he was beaten with a weapon and he fled for his life. How else can you account for the most focused and controlled golfer on the planet suffering facial injuries, having both rear windows smashed in and he crashes his truck at less than 33 mph adjacent to his driveway.

Men are ridiculed when reporting abuse and in the marketing of products often made the brunt of humour by having their bodies abused by others or inanimate objects. It’s funny to strike a man – not so funny to show females in the same light. Both are inappropriate. It sends children the wrong message.

Hundreds of studies over decades show the mutuality of IPV. In recent ones conducted for the CDC it shows a 70% initiation rate by females. Studies also show women get injured less if they do not initiate. Why do they initiate more often. Again, social mores. Men, as boys, are socialized not to hit their sister, or girls even if bigger and not to retaliate against girls even if bigger. Girls learn this and so they do it because they can.
If the woman starts it and the man defends himself causing inadvertent injury he is hauled away – no questions asked. He can lose his home, his children and much of his income, sometimes his job. Suicides for men rise considerably because of this. At least 8 men per day die at their own hand across this nation.

One of the worst forms of abuse and revenge by the ex wife is rampant in this country and supported fully by the judiciary. The taking away of a father’s children which occurs in a 9-1 ratio favouring mom. Females initiate divorce in over 75% of cases knowing full well they will get sole physical custody with tax free child support and sometimes spousal support unless they are provable drug addicts.MJM
