SEE TRANSCRIPT BELOW. DISCLAIMER: I'm NOT saying that women should be guaranteed sole custody in all cases. It should be examined case-by-case. It's true that a single dad is more likely to abuse a child than a single mom, as I'll prove below, but the reverse is true in some instances. Moreover, MOST single fathers AND single mothers are good people who would never abuse their children, & unlike MGTOW, I realize that a majority doesn't deserve to be blamed for the actions of a minority of people.
Transcript: "In the manosphere, it's a common idea that a single mother is more likely to abuse her child than a single father. I actually have proof of the opposite, straight from someone who was trying to make the claim...
Abusers of children are (in order of percentage)
- Biological Mother Alone (26.7%)
- Biological Mother & Father Together (22.3%)
- Biological Father Alone (14.7%)
It's true that a higher percentage is of mothers, but using this to prove that a single mom is more likely to abuse a child than a single dad, goes by the same logic as a "SJW" who was saying that because most American rapists are white men, that means white men are more likely to rape than men of color... But in reality...most people in the US who rape are white, because most people in the US are white. Rape rates, however, may be equal between races.
I'm sure all of you understand that logic. The same applies here. The reason more single moms commit child abuse is that most single parent households are moms.
Since 24% of single parent households are headed by men, the percentage of child abuse (by single parents) committed by men, if they occurred at equal rates, would be 24%...
Let's do some math... Child abuse perpetrated solely by the mother is 26.7%, solely by the father is 14.7%.
So let's see how they stack up: 26.7+14.7=41.4% of child abuse is committed solely by one parent. 14.7 of 41.4 is 35.5%.
So...a much greater % than would be the case if they were equally as likely to abuse their kids as single mothers. This indicates that a single father is more likely to abuse his child than a single mother. This disputes claims from the manosphere that a single mother is more likely to abuse a child than a single father...
Let me establish something: these are a minority. Most mothers OR fathers don't abuse their children. Most fathers, like most mothers, are wonderful people who keep their family going.
But there is a minority of people who do bad things. And the truth is that the majority of that minority, which is really small, is men...
That's reflected in child abuse, which is disproportionately high among men. That reflects the fact that most murders in general are committed by men. Some people argue that women commit less murder because they're less able to, because they're weaker.
By that reasoning, women would be more likely to kill other women than to kill men, because women are about the same strength compared to men. But that's the opposite of the case. Of the 10% of murders that are committed by women, women are 4.5x as likely to kill men than to kill other women.
And that's not a surprise. The argument was bogus anyway. Most murders don't require physical strength. Most murders are committed with guns or poison, or something like that. You don't need strength to do that. A weak woman could pull a trigger, but they're much less likely to, because they're much less likely to want to.
The reason I'm making this video is to debunk the common idea misogynists use that because more women abuse children - they won't take into account the proportions, & that it's simply because more women than men have custody over their children in general & are thus more able to kill their children - they'll say "this is proof that if women were stronger, they'd be much more murderous than men." Well, I disproved that.
So a lot of the manosphere get off to the idea that women are much more evil than men. My argument isn't that men are more evil than women, it's that there are more evil men than evil women. It's a completely different argument. They use a minority to unrighteously demonize an entire gender.
I'm acknowledging that it's a very very very slim minority of people who abuse or kill or whatever, and of those, most are men.
As a similar example, most geniuses are men. Unlike the manosphere, I don't give all men credit for the accomplishments of a minority of men. The same is the case here. All men don't get blamed for the actions of a few.
It just seems that more men do more abnormal things, whether good or bad. Misogynists need to stop falsely generalizing acting like all men do good and all women do bad."
