Men V. Abusers
Men V. Abusers: Child-abuser/Batterer Tactics Defame Men
First and foremost: most men are not child-abusers, sex-offenders or batterers. Child-abusers, sex-offenders and batterers are criminals--dangerous, violent criminals--who will use any strategy or tactic to hide, promote and protect their criminal conduct. One fairly successful tactic results in the defamation of men. How?
- Child abusers, sex-offenders and batterers deflect attention away from their crimes by calling all accusations as "male-bashing." Abusing, raping and killing women and children has nothing to do with male-bashing, but everything to do with serving hard prison time for violent crime--if caught. If anyone is guilty of male-bashing, it is certainly child-abusers, sex-offenders and batterers--all of whom are criminals--trying to latch themselves and their crimes to the group of "all men" by re-defining all accusations of violent crime as "male bashing."

I certainly hope that you've posted your real name because the DOJ is increasing its efforts to identify those affiliated with the child-abuser/sex-offender/batterer lobby. You see, they've had enough of you guys trying to legitimize yourselves by attaching yourselves to the "all men" category and by defining your criminal behaviors as the conduct of most men--which thereby defames most men.
Having spent most of my entire interactions with men: most of my friends are men, most of my colleagues are men, most of my doctors are men, most of my associates are men, most of my prior employees are men (military men, that is), most of my mentors are men, etc., etc, etc.; I can tell you--and, as an empirically University trained researcher, back it up with scholarly, peer-reviewed statistical data--that the majority of men are really, really angry, enraged and outraged by CRIMINALS like you.
See, John, the majority of men are good, loving, decent human beings. They don't rape or sodomize their children; the don't terrorize and traumatize their wives, their kids, their families; they don't solicit criminals to kidnap their kids or to decimate their kids' mothers or to defame seasoned, respected clinicians and other professionals who provide ample historic evidence on behalf of abused children. They're flawed, they make mistakes, they succumb to human foibles, they may even yell and lose their temper; but NEVER, NEVER, NEVER do they do what YOU GUYS do. And what YOU GUYS do is despicable.
You guys are vile, human criminal garbage. YOU GUYS are why the death penalty still exists. YOU GUYS are the pox on humanity. YOU GUYS are the ones who hate kids, women, AND most men; who consume kids and women; who rape kids, women--and even men; who kill kids, women and most men. But NEVER, NEVER are you "most men." You're just vile, human criminal garbage--most of you HAPPEN to be men, but NEVER are ANY of you MOST MEN.
It's YOU GUYS who defame MEN. It's ONLY YOU GUYS who make MOST MEN look bad whenever you try to posture yourselves as "most men." YOU GUYS play bait-n-switch. I'll use a direct quote from your post as an example: "You concede any claim to credibility when you try to marginalize men who disagree with you simply because they are fathers, or because they are men."
RE-READ my previous posts. NEVER ONCE did I make reference to men as a group. Never once. Never once did I "try to marginalize men... simply because they are fathers, or because they are men." I made reference to child-abusers and batterers. Read it for yourself. And thanks for the freebie: you divulged yourself as a deceptive misandric misogynist and child-abuser.
Yours is a wonderful example of bait-n-switch: guys like you trying to legitimize yourselves by attaching yourselves to the "all men" category and then making false claims that I, who have correctly identified you, have also attached you to the "all men" category. Nice try. No dice.
Sorry, Charlie, you're not ALL MEN, you're not MOST MEN. What you ARE is part of a very despicable and dangerous lobby known as the Child-abuser/Sex Offender/Batterer Lobby. All of you (men AND women) who are part of this lobby are vile, human criminal garbage. And where do I get my data from? All the LEGITIMATE domestic and International authoritative bodies and scholars on the subject. Here’s one you can relate to: the DOJ. I’ll point out that most of the DOJ is comprised of MEN. And MOST of the MOSTLY MALE DOJ loathe CRIMINALS like you. They see the data, the statistics, the repeated horrors day after day after day--and they rightfully loathe you for it. And where do you get your data from? Martin Fiebert who uses the extremely flawed Conflict Tactic Scales (CTS). Who said the CTS was flawed? The CTS AUTHOR! From: http://trishwilson.typepad.com/blog/womens_issues/index.html
The CTS is rife with problems, the least of which is that they isolate individual physical "hits" between men and women in a relationship without taking the hits within the context of the abusive incident or abusive relationship. They also don't consider other, existing problems of domestic violence, such as emotional, mental, legal, and economic abuse. They don't consider sexual assault or rape in their tabulations. They don't consider the severity of a physical "hit," counting a slap as the same as a hard punch that leaves bruising or worse. Strauss, Gelles, and Steinmetz are the researchers who created the CTS. Gelles himself has said the following regarding the CTS and men's rights types who take them out of context in their drive to "prove" that men and women are equally abusive:
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FACTOIDS
by Richard J. Gelles
University of Rhode Island Family Violence Research Program
"This factoid cites research by Murray Straus, Suzanne Steinmetz, and Richard Gelles, as well as a host of other self-report surveys. Those using this factoid tend to conveniently leave out the fact that Straus and his colleague's surveys as well as data collected from the National Crime Victimization Survey (Bureau of Justice Statistics) consistently find that no matter what the rate of violence or who initiates the violence, women are 7 to 10 times more likely to be injured in acts of intimate violence than are men."
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:NOT AN EVEN PLAYING FIELD
By Richard J. Gelles
"[S]elf-described battered husbands, men’s rights group members and some scholars maintain that there are significant numbers of battered men, that battered men are indeed a social problem worthy of attention and that there are as many male victims of violence as female. The last claim is a significant distortion of well-grounded research data."
"[W]hen we look at injuries resulting from violence involving male and female partners, it is categorically false to imply that there are the same number of "battered" men as there are battered women. Research shows that nearly 90 percent of battering victims are women and only about ten percent are men."
I would encourage you to brush up on your research as it pertains to battered women AND abused children. Overwhelming research indicates that most batterers are male and that women are 7 to 10 times more likely to be injured in acts of intimate violence (CTS author) and children 12 to 15 times more likely to be injured by males (that would be males in your group, not most males--check out research from PROTECT and The Leadership Council--they‘re great guys, heroes in my humble opinion). I encourage you to brush up on logical fallacies since you don’t understand what is an ad hominem attack: http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/ad-hominem.html
Lastly, the only enlightening thing you have to offer is your address and a list of your affiliates--to the DOJ.
