Another story reported by the Equal Parenting Alliance (‘EPA’), over three years ago. The child abusers in question were ‘intrafamilial adolescent sex offenders’, a major cohort among child abusers.
75% of child abusers were alienated from one of their parents.
This disturbing consequence of parental alienation has come to light in recent research by the Australian Institute of Criminology.
The Institute found that “Almost three in every four offenders had either no contact or minimal contact with at least one biological parent” (Australian Institute of Criminology Intrafamilial adolescent Sex Offenders: Psychological Profile and Treatment, Trends and Issues in Crime and Criminal Justice, no. 375, June 2009. p.2).
Given that the state encourages parental alienation – notably, by failing to enforce contact orders against vindictive mothers – the state has become a key player in driving up the incidence of child abuse. 72% of the income taxes which largely finance the state are paid by men.
