I know no one by the name of Irving. You have very obviously gone off the deep end.



Stop using my name on this board!

Yet we have his own words on this board from SYG:

Link to comment HERE

Here's my contribution. My reactions are in bold type.

This article is fallacy-ridden! Shame on you!
"However, recent research shows that some men sabotage women’s use of birth control and some use coercion to get a woman pregnant. Abusive men use these tactics to control women." What recent research?

"We are actually witnessing an erosion of protections of women and children in abusive relationships. In this article, I examine the ways in which policies that reflect social biases painting women as “vindictive” liars, combine with the efforts of both alleged abusers to fight to regain control of their wives and children and fathers’ rights proponents are harming women and children trying to escape abuse. No, I'm afraid you did not examine social biases, assuming they are social biases in the first place!

When and where and how did Jay Silverman become such an expert?

Who, besides him, makes the same assertions you make?

Since when do several anecdotes amount to conclusive proof of anything, much less social biases?

"Thanks to the aid of the Internet, (mostly) men that make claims of being falsely accused or alienated find support, encouragement and targets for their anger -- which is aimed at their exes, or women in general and feminists in particular. Individuals and groups that promote studies referring to domestic violence as 50-50 or “mutual” also find supporters within this crowd. Many of these claims are based on studies that rely on self-reportage or pick up common couple violence. Their limitations include using self-report; not picking up severe violence or homicide; not putting violence into context (was it used for self-defense?); and not including violence during separation (the most dangerous time for a woman). What the promotion of these studies has done is introduce the element of doubt. If you combine this with women’s low credibility (due to societal bias and the biases of the legal system), you have danger." You must prove that these are flawed studies, not just slip the accusation into your article and proceed from there!

You can very plainly see that Captain Courageous on SYG says the post made by Santo Christoforo MD are his, yet he goes on RHReality article and slams me with the profanity laced comments he has made? Tsk tsk tsk....

Thanks for this awesome blog. I'll keep reading.

After checking out the linked post at SYG, I checked out the "captain's" blog. It was like landing in Bizarro world. The title, "Hand-to-hand combat with feminist posters." was his recount of the postings at RHReality Check (RHRC) under, "Reproductive Rights, Parental Rights, and Family Violence: A Dangerous Intersection." He went on to say, "I just duked it out with some feminist posters about an article on the Reproductive Health Reality Check website" It wasn't my account of what happened. They were intellectually outwitted over and over again.
