I have always found it odd that we ignore child abuse by women. We are all fully aware that men abuse children in many ways, society is awake to that fact, but why are we so blind to child abuse by women? One of the most dangerous situations for a child is where the male is not their own father – yet who’s fault is this? It could be the biological father’s, it could be the mother’s.
But let’s have a thought experiment:
A woman selects a man to breed with, and then is abused by that man, that child is then abused by that man. Is the woman utterly innocent when she selected a male to couple with who is abusive? No, of course she isn’t. Women are not innocent angels and we cannot pretend they are socially retarded just to make sure they don’t get blamed by anyone or society. That is infantilising women and thus disrespecting woman as a whole.
Now of course that man could be a smooth liar and had pretended to be loving, but do you seriously think that every single single mother was dating a man with an emotional IQ high enough to hide his abusive violent nature? That says a lot about said woman’s IQ level if she had no hint of his real self. I have no doubt that some men would be undetectable, but don’t apply it to all men because then you raise a child with the idea that they cannot trust men. When in reality their mother was a fool to couple with a bad man, and then to further couple and invite into the household more bad men to be around the child of the first one. The bad coupling produced an innocent child to be abused by that mother’s failure. The only reason that child can be abused by other men is because of the mother’s failure to identity the same problem over and over again, by coupling with men who leave or abuse, or both.
Why in today’s society can we only see the father’s failure? Could it be…we live in a matriarchy? *creepy piano music
