Parental alienation is already being misused in our family courts to the extent that victims of domestic abuse are afraid to disclose abuse for fear of being accused of alienation.
In America, more than fifty thousand children each year are forced by courts into unsupervised contact with an abusive parent. More than 70% of domestic abuse perpetrators gain custody of children. More than 770 children have been murdered by a divorcing or separating parent since 2008. For children in America, bravely speaking out about abuse is no guarantee of escaping it. The courts often overlook and dismiss allegations of domestic and sexual abuse. In many cases they do so because of the aggressive misuse of a concept called parental alienation (PA).
Despite there being no scientific evidence for it, parental alienation has become a dominant force in American courts as the standard defence against domestic abuse allegations.
If we take protecting children in the UK seriously, then we must look to the experience of the US with parental alienation. It shows us quite how dangerous this concept is, and why it has no place in UK law or our legal system.
Just three days after we heard that RISE have lost their contract following an “equalities impact assessment” on its service provision, another women’s charity, Monklands Women’s Aid, has announced it, too, has been defunded.
The charity has been supporting women and children for 30 years, and its activities include providing refuge, housing support services, and crisis support, for those who have experienced, or are at risk of experiencing, domestic abuse. Like RISE, Monklands has had its funding removed as part of a decision to make services more “inclusive”; specifically to provide services for men. And perpetrators.
The activists who want to convince everyone that biological sex has no impact on a person’s life, although a minority, are successfully infiltrating organisations and influencing decision-makers.
This is not a drill. This is a war on women. Let’s start fighting back.
- Suella Braverman is expecting her second child at the beginning of next month
- She is the inspiration behind the Ministerial and Other Maternity Allowances Bill
- Drafts of the bill referred to ‘pregnant people’ rather than mothers or women
- The Government has now caved in and agreed that it will refer to ‘mothers’
UK — . A UK-based collective that says it was “formed in February 2020 by a group of parents of Transgender children” recently called for the murders of women who are doubtful of gender identity theory.The group’s website features the tagline “Anti Terf site” and the unironic suggestion: “If your religion makes you hate someone you need a new religion.”
Executive Order 13988 was the fourth signed by Joe Biden on taking office at the White House on January 20. It demands that steps be taken to prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. Without perhaps realising it, the new US president was walking into an argument with one of his partys most fervent supporters, the tennis legend Martina Navratilova.
Shortly after Biden’s executive order, a powerful group of female athletes entered the fray. The Women’s Sports Working Policy Group, whose members include Navratilova and Olympic swimming champions Nancy Hogshead-Makar and Donna de Varona, have called on the president to make separate provision for elite sport and to “establish a middle ground”. The group advocate a “science-based ethical approach”, stating that “girls’/women’s competitive sport needs safeguards and trans girls/women need to be included with appropriate accommodations”.
IE — Dublin. On December 7, 2017, Sean Kavanagh punched a bartender and threw a bottle at an event manager while being kicked out of the Malt House Bar for knocking over several glasses. Once outside the bar, Kavanagh tried to run back in, at which point a family friend, Thomas Coogan, tried to stop him. Kavanagh punched Coogan in the face, fracturing Coogan’s skull and causing bleeding to the brain; Coogan spent several days in intensive care.At some point after the bar assaults, Kavanagh began identifying as a woman called Shauna, and now has a gender recognition certificate, which was provided to the court.Noctor argued in court that Kavanagh is “vulnerable” and would find prison particularly difficult, referencing international research that “has found transgender women in particular are a vulnerable group in prison”.Noctor referred to two males currently being held in women’s jails in Ireland, who must be kept separate from the rest of the prison population. The two males in women’s prisons are: Barbie Kardashian, who has demonstrated a pattern of extreme physical and sexual violence towards women An unnamed pedophile, who was convicted of 10 counts of sexual assault and one count of cruelty against a child .
