Look after the family and you help the child claim the Maxim-drones, arguing that it's better to merge the Children's Commission into the Families Commission. I disagree - I think children need their own representation, a clear focus on their needs, not just some vague commitment to families. But that's not what has me stewing, 'though it makes me angry enough, and perhaps I will try to write a little about it in the New Year.
It's this doozie.
We know that if a child lives with their two biological parents they are substantially less likely to be abused than if they live in a house where their mum has a string of successive boyfriends.
Spot the mother blaming in that one! Child abuse is not the fault of violent men; it's the mother's fault. And it's certainly not the fault of men who abandon their children, leaving mothers and children to get along as best they may. No, it's all the mother's fault.
When will the Maxim Institute stop blaming women for men's violence?
