Breaking the Science: Misleading Stories
By Mark Rosenthal

Excerpts:

This film seems to be the first step in a pattern that's been played out many times in the past few decades:

1. Determine what conclusions a study would need to reach in order to stampede legislators into passing the laws you want passed.

2. Conduct studies that are carefully designed ignore any inconvenient facts. Popular techniques in this step include: 1) using self-selected rather than randomized population samples, 2) taking care not to ask any questions that might elicit undesired answers, and 3) neglecting to report any results at all from any questions whose answers contradict your thesis.

3. Publicize these studies as if they were impartial research, by planting newspaper stories, publishing in journals whose referees are as biased as the studies' authors, getting corporations to fund advertising that masquerades as a "documentary", etc.

4. Use yellow journalism to scare the public into demanding that legislators pass a law to fix the nonexistent problem.

"Breaking the Silence" seems to be the publicity and hype phase of an even more insidious campaign. The goal this time appears to be stampeding legislators into passing laws that will have the effect of preventing courts from granting any form of custody (legal or physical, shared or sole) to any father over any mother's objection.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services data on child abuse shows that over twice as many children are battered by their mothers (40.8%) as by their fathers (18.8%), excluding cases in which both parents are abusive (16.9%). Source

Likewise the number of children killed by their mothers without the father's involvement is double the number killed by their fathers without the mother's involvement. Yet the filmmakers mislead viewers by interviewing only children victimized by fathers and denying children victimized by their mothers the opportunity to tell their stories.

Hi


Divorce and divorce laws are turning marriage and family life into a misery.

Child support (child maintenance) is becoming an industry. Mother's universallay have more chances of getting child custody AND the money for the children. As a result fathers loose their children, loose their money and are getting bankrupted.

If mothers loved their children so much AND also wanted equal rights with men, WHY DON'T THEY TAKE UP EQUAL RESPONSIBILITY ? why don't they go to work to take care of their children.

When my DAD lost work, he took a bicicyle and went looking for work. He didn't sue mom


When I need money to support my family, I look for employment. I read the appointment colum. I don't sue my wife and try to take my children with me

In U.S.A. war veterans return home to get arrested for non payment of arrears. They are left to face a REAL battle at home !!. The US is spending approx $ 46 billion OF TAX PAYERS money due to broken families and more would be needed in future.

India and Asia in general is following !!

Divorce is NO LONGER an American or western phenomenon. It is universal. (a) Child custody and hence child support favoring the mom, (b) men loosing their beloved children and most of their assets to wife *and* (c) the magic domestic violence bills are becoming universal !!

Divorces are soaring in China. In Japan women are just waiting for their husbands to retire so that they can divorce them !! and get a good share of their retirement money !! "..till pay day - do - us - part..." :-((

>>>>>>>>>> please see >>>>>>>>>>>
"......"Women are almost always the instigators of divorce in middle-aged couples. There are many housewives who wait until their husbands have received their retirement pay before they ask for a divorce. At the moment, there are loads of these women just waiting for their husbands to retire," Divorce consultant Hiromi Ikeuchi tells Shukan Post........"

Divorce taking deadly toll on senior men
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Many are dying in India too, just that no one seems to have done a comprehensive stuy and released any statistics

India Just now passed a domestic violence act, which is on the same lines as the one(s) killing the American's and American Families. Just a hint of domestic violence will land the husband in jail in the ORIENT !! as well

India held its head high while talking of tradition and family. Alas that's a thing of the past. I can see India going the way of Childless partners living together - OUTSIDE marriage. Single parenting, state care for children et. all are here

Birth rates are falling across the democratic world as marriage and child bearing are no longer pleasure. They are becomming a pain - due to corrupt women using legal loopholes to make money out of a system


This will have a civilisational impact

God save us all !!

The sad thing is that people are starting to realize that anything that comes out of the gender feminist crowd is pretty much based on made up information. So, they will start ignoring them. The unfortunate consequence might be that people who really need help wont get it.
