Child abuse linked to parental alienation

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).

The original paper:

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.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
