I watched a lot and read a lot of the contriversey on PA/PAS.
This clip - The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet » Blog Archive » Parental Alienation Syndrome- really pushed me over the edge -- I believe in both parents rights..
EVEN THOUGH I AM A SURVIVOR OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE..
I AM NOT A FEMINAZI!
I don't have an agenda and I'm working my ass of to end the gender war- because I know
MY CHILDREN ARE MUCH MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAT MY NEED TO BE CALLED A "VICTIM OF D.V. OR A WOMAN THAT BELLIEVES IN FATHERS RIGHTS"
The courts NEED to DIVIDE in order to CONQUER!
HELLOOOOO IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE -- LISTENING??
So with that said -- I wrote to many talk shows today and left this message --
I am a survivor of Domestic Violence and I would like to ask if you would be interested in doing a show with victims of Domestic Violence who were alienated from their children because of the alienators money or power
Alternatively, just victims of horrible lawlessness courts, false allegations by the abuser and so on.
I belong to a group Voices of women and last week when they were talking about sabotaging Alec Baldwin's appearances I stood up and said -
WAIT, WAIT WAIT!
You have three members here that are living proof that parent alienation is REAL -
You shouldn't bash Alec if you know it happens to women as well and it's very real.
Why aren't you (VOW or NOW) protecting those of us survivors that KNOW more about the topic than many therapists?
I think having a show with WOMEN who have been both survivors of DV and PAS would get the facts out there and NOT be a gender/abuser show -- we can save that for Jerry!
If they keep doing shows on parent alienation with hard core fathers or mothers rights people the truth won't get out there..
Try something different - DV Survivors that agree with the fathers that are being accused of being abusers hiding behind PAS.
Don't get me wrong - there is a hint of truth in the fact that abusers MAY try to use PAS as a cover - but there are REAL abused children out there .. so does the fact that vindictive people falsely call child protective services negate the FACT that child abuse is real?
