The Father’s Rights movement is an overlap movement to the Men’s Rights movement. Many men at AVFM are also father’s rights activists. AVFM has written several articles about Father’s rights and on a survey they listed it as one of the most important issues of the MRM. What is a father’s rights activist? I’ll tell you.
FRA’s are bitter men who have either gone through a divorce or are going through one. They tend to be abusive and out to harm their ex-wives through their children. They bleat about Parental Alienation Syndrome, a flimsy concept, which isn’t recognized in any mental health capacity. Both the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Diseases, Fifth Edition (DSM-5),1 and the International Classification of Diseases, Eleventh Edition (ICD-11) have refused to admit PAS as a legitimate diagnosis.
PAS is a term coined by Richard A. Gardner in the early 1980s to refer to what he describes as a disorder in which a child, on an ongoing basis, belittles and insults one parent without justification, due to a combination of factors, including indoctrination by the other parent (almost exclusively as part of a child custody dispute) and the child’s own attempts to denigrate the target parent.
Gardner’s original proposals about PAS made women the alienating parent. PAS has been extensively criticized by American and Canadian scientists for its gender bias. Although it is sometimes used in custody cases in a legal framework, it’s been a complete failure.
Last night I watched what can only be called abuse. They are hard to watch. The father in question is trying to catch his ex-wife using PAS. This is the result.
He stalks his daughter after school with a video camera with his girlfriend/new wife in the car.
He stalks his daughter after school again
Again with the stupid video camera, confronting his ex-wife
This poor girl, being stalked and recorded finally has enough
There are lots more of these stalking videos on his channel.
This need to stalk children with a video camera is disgusting and is also something MRA’s do and they’ve even come up with a silly acronym for it. It’s called ABR (always be recording). This father has no problem being an abusive asshole, uploading his stalking to the internet and doxxing his own child. It does get worse. He made some videos of him and his girlfriend and their kids on holidays and fun moments and uploaded them with a message to his daughter in the title. What he’s doing is saying ‘See what fun you could’ve had if you only came with me?’ It’s disgusting.
This is what FRA’s do. They stalk and video record their children and ex-wives while they’re abusing them. It’s no wonder these abusive father’s don’t get sole custody.
I just don’t know what to say. I truly don’t.
