Parental Alienation Syndrome

Parental Alienation Syndrome Fathers’ advocates claim abuse allegations are routinely used to deny divorced fathers contact with their children and to poison children’s minds against their fathers, in what the activists and some psychologists call “parental alienation syndrome.” Cathy Young

The feminist-inspired myth that women involved in custody battles and divorces do not engage in attempts to alienate the children from their fathers strikes me as ridiculous and completely unbelievable.

People will engage in all sorts of malefactions in order to advantage themselves. They will cheat on their taxes, overclaim on their insurance policies, lie in job interviews - and they will even kill or behave violently if they discover that their partners have been unfaithful. And yet we are supposed to believe that when women are involved in the most acrimonious of divorce situations - situations wherein access to their very own children are at stake - and in situations wherein they are engaging in raging hostilities with the men whom they now hate - they do not lie, or exaggerate, and they make no attempts whatsoever to poison the minds of the children against those men.

There is another direct route to the conclusion that parental alienation must exist.

Picture the situation where mum and dad have just separated, and of course it is dad who has had to leave the family home. What are the children inevitably going to ask, and keep on asking? "Where is dad? Why did he go? Doesn't he love us any more? Was it my fault?"

Now tell me exactly how mum, angry and bitter at dad, is going to answer those questions. Is she going to tell the truth -"I hate your father and drove him out. I can't stand him any more. It's better for me that he's gone and I won't have him back. But he still loves you and hated to have to leave you behind."

Or is she going to cop out with a pack of lies, putting all the blame on the man who is not around to answer back - "Your father doesn't love you any more. He's a bad dad and doesn't want to be with us. He has walked out and abandoned us. You are better off without him. It's not your fault, and it's certainly not mine. It's all down to him."

My observation of female nature over several decades tells me which version to believe.

Ah, but we live in a world where only good mothers exist who would never stab their ex's in their backs. Misbehaving moms don't exist, but dastardly dads are everywhere. This is the fictitious world of custody decisions.
