While a few posts remained, most, in our supposition, were deleted because they disagreed with the author. One advocate was banned. Apparently, this is not the first time people have complained about the comment section of the Huffington Post.
I see, professionally, cases where the mother is trying to severe the bonds between the children and the father unreasonably, and agree that, yes, this is sometimes a real problem. It is exceedingly rare, however, particularly since those unhealthy psychological traits are present BEFORE the relationship starts and men with intelligence don't have children with women who are mentally ill. It is certainly nowhere NEAR as common as cases where abusive men are trying to control the children in order to control the mother. Your post assumes there is some equivalency, implies that perhaps half the cases are 'bad mommy' and seems to urge that all abuse accusations be greeted skeptically, when that is definitely NOT what is reflected in actual research. My estimate would be perhaps 96% 'bad daddy' and at most 4% 'bad mommy'. In addition, a success by 'bad mommy' at cutting Daddy out of the kids' lives leads to the kids TEMPORARILY losing contact with Daddy for a few years. A success by a 'bad daddy' leads to -- dead Mommy, dead children. Those outcomes aren't equivalent either. Many, many children don't want anything to do with Daddy because Daddy isolates the family from others, routinely calls the children and Mommy nasty names, is a dictator, beats Mommy, beats the children, rapes Mommy, rapes the children, and threatens to kill everybody in the family if he doesn't get his own way 100%. Their reluctance to be around Daddy is justified because that was Daddy's behavior in the past, Daddy's behavior in the past is the best indicator of Daddy's future behavior, and in case after case that's exactly what Daddy DOES DO as soon as he can con the courts into giving him unsupervised time with the kids.
This article covers a lot of areas and appears to go off the rails at some points, still the comments about censorship at the factually challenged HuffPo ring true, IMO.http://tinyurl.com/382uds9HuffPo's Divorce Section: No Room for Reason on Domestic Violence?QuoteWhile a few posts remained, most, in our supposition, were deleted because they disagreed with the author.
