Parental Alienation Syndrome?

I am sure many of you have wondered where I fall in this. Well the definition I have been given is when the custodial parent - generally the mother - attempts to brainwash the child against the non-custodial parent - generally the father. So here we have in the words of one of Glenn's own followers about "psychologial abuse" - of which PAS is listed by these men:

"domestic violence victims are 50% of all the victims since domestic violence (DV) is about 50/50 across the genders.Men are 33-38% of the seriously *physically* injured. This is ignoring emotional harm."
As far as "emotional violence" I don't believe in's a figment of someone's imagination. I believe one person can abuse another psychologically, but even that's problematic since it's too subjective, and too open to interpretation by the courts.

The law, and these stats, should be based on cold hard realities. The other stuff may count as something, but it is not violence.

Okay so emotional and psychological torture suffered by one adult from another adult is too "subjective" and "too open to interpretation" even when it comes in the form of a complete package of ultimate control by an abusive man? Then why is it every quack on a local street corner can say that a custodial mother (and it is usually always mothers who are accused of PAS) is engaging in PAS, which supposedly is a form of psychological abuse?

Sounds to me like this FR/MRA wants to have his cake and eat it too.

You know what? That's freaking brilliant! They agree that we agree that psychology/psychiatry is a fraud. NO PAS!

Rj - you forget that psychology/psychiatry is only a fraud when we need to claim a psychological issue. Look at how they target Andrea Yates for the murders of her children. She was just a bad person according to them and for her to be able to claim a mental defect is a travesty of justice. So she should NOT have been able to claim a mental illness for her crimes, yet men can claim psychological "torture" when a woman (and in most cases) rightfully tries to protect a child. Men will often claim alienation if a woman explains to her child what abuse is and if that something doesn't feel right it often IS wrong. Oh because mom is telling the child that dad is wrong while saying or doing something that is wrong, this is PAS and is psychological torture. Ummmmm okay whatever. It all boils down to men's sense of entitlement. Lundy Bancroft covers this in his books. Abusers often have an unbalanced sense of entitlement. They should be able to have something or do something even if it is wrong.
