Mediators not acting properly

We can't wait to see what Michael Green thinks about the following post to Familylawwebguide. When you're lodging your complaint "One" you might want to ask how Michael Green can run a Family Law Mediation service when he is President of a Mens Rights Group.

One wrote:

"I had three mediation sessions with my child's mother with the last being at the end of last year. Recently I sought further mediation. After visiting the FDR office and giving my reasons for seeking mediation an appointment was made. I then received a message from the centre's secretary stating 'the mediator says this is not a matter suitable for mediation'. After questioning why i received a call from the mediator. I was told that the file had been closed some months ago and since then a conflict of interest had arisen. The mediator said he had been 'connecting with the other party on a social basis, over coffees and such'. He said the initial reason given was motivated by a desire to keep his social life private(from his secretary). To quote him ' i tried to fob you off earlier'. As it turns out the term 'socially' is a gross understatement. I have been looking for advice on where to go from here and getting answers initially proved frustrating. I find myself questioning the entire mediation process. I wonder whose interests have been served. My questions centre around whether a mediator can be involved with a party socially after the mediation process has been closed. I was not informed it was closed. I was not informed further mediation was no longer possible. Obviously the other party must have known these details. The reasons for seeking further mediation are sensitive and I am appalled that the ex-mediator has knowledge of their nature due to having to say why I wanted further mediation when applying. Also the mediator and myself had a prolonged discussion about my reasons for wanting further mediation... he told me that he could still give impartial advice. on a surface level I trust that confidentiality wont be broken. However, recent changes in the other party's behaviour have led me to conclude that she is receiving advice on how to act. At first i found these changes reassuring and I believe the mediator is trying to help. The reality is this advice weakens the chances of effectively resolving the issue that led me to seek mediation. The surface level confidence might be easy to live by but how can anyone say that they wont apply the information they possess on a more subtle level, or make a 'slip'. I sought advice and consequently sent a letter to the mediator and another to the director of his organisation."

More Wicked Stepmothers

These women say that they are supporting their men in fighting for the best interests of the child/children. And yet when you read comments like this you know it's nothing to do with what is best for the children, it's purely about spite. These are the women that Familylawebguide and Lone Fathers association like to brag are a part of their causes and are joined in the fight. We think women like this are DAMAGING to children.

My partner is currently paying child support for 3 children. His ex has never worked and her children are all now at school. If she receives a reduction in her centrelink payments because she is making no effort to work does this mean that my partner will have to pay more in child support because her 'income' has decreased?

We are also wanting to dispute paternity now that we have a baby of our own. We have been paying Child Support to this woman for 8 years. Approximately 18 months into paying her doubts surfaced about the real paternity of these children however over the years each time we have sought advice about disputing paternity we have been told we do not have strong grounds to dispute paternity. Is having a young family of our own strong enough grounds as this effects our child too now not just us? All we are seeking is the truth.

Lindsay Jackel Supports Black Shirts

The Black Shirts were a so called Fathers Rights crackpot group originating out of Melbourne Victoria (also where Lindsay Jackel lives) and decided to run a terror campaign of stalking and harassment against any women they heard had left her husband. The leader John Abbott was found guilty in court. They were exposed as a crank group and a simple Google search will reveal the lack of mental stability for anyone involved in the group.

Here Lindsay Jackel, Victorian Director of the Shared Parenting Council, executive of SRL and Dads On the Air makes a post on DOTA forum supporting the stance of the BLACK SHIRTS.

"Perhaps her face was blocked out because she was incapable of taking the smirk of triumph off her face.
I wonder if she was the one filmed throwing the bucket of, hopefully, water over the Blackshirts?
As if the son has really endured three years of fear from these men in black. I hope he hasn't been exposed to Men in Black I and II or both the female protagonists in the Alien series.
I also hope she is not going to spend any of the interview money sending him off to see Predator vs. Alien.
Such a delicate little soul with such a frail looking mother.

Note his callous comments about the affected child and his mother who had been terrorised by this group.

We wonder if Lindsay Jackel was actually a member of the Black Shirts as he was already living in Melbourne and research available on the internet proves that he was a militant supporter of mens rights and now to find public support for the Black Shirts? Is this coincidental? Another coincidence is that an ally of the Shared Parenting Council of Australia is The Richard Hillman Foundation. John Abbott is now a member.


Ex QC Jailed for Child Porn

A RETIRED Victorian senior barrister will serve six months behind bars after pleading guilty to child pornography offences.

Neil James Williams, of Newham in central Victoria, was charged with single counts of using a carriage service to access child pornography, using a carriage service to transmit child pornography and knowingly possessing child pornography.

The retired Victorian Queens Counsel was arrested by Australian Federal Police (AFP) in October last year.

He was sentenced today by Judge Joe Gullaci in the Bendigo County Court and ordered to serve an immediate six-month jail term.

He will then be released on a recognisance order to be of good behaviour for 18 months.

Williams was among 19 men arrested in Australia by the AFP as part of a 12-month global child abuse investigation.

More than 15,000 videos and 500,000 images of child abuse - described by police as among the worst they have seen - were seized in the investigation.

The images and videos, which captured the sexual abuse of children, were shared between members of an online network.,21985,25375628-5005961,00.html

What is the Shared Parenting Councils Relationship with the Child Support Agency?

Wayne Butler is constantly referring to his special relationship with the Child Support Agency and implying that he can exert a lot of influence with that department? Mike Taylor has also referred to the special arrangement. We would like to know what is the nature of that arrangement and all that it entails. Is the Child Support Agency aware that the Shared Parenting Council of Australia really is just a rebadged Mens Rights group who have every interest in avoiding the payment of Child Support. Surely they have read the majority of the posts on the forum Familylawwebguide that are mainly concerned with the minimisation and avoidance of Child Support liabilities? Why are they still involved as a participant ont he site then? Why have they not admitted the bias towards payees and withdrawn their participation from the site? So many questions.

Lindsay Jackel Airing his dirty Laundry in Public

Lindsay Jackel wrote in a submission to the Government:

"It is wrongly claimed that because a father may not agree with a mother that he will abuse his children. This is not true. Children are safer with their separated fathers than with their separated mothers. There is an increased risk of hurt and harm for children living with separated mothers, both from the mother herself and form her current partner. This risk is greater than if they were living with their father and his new partner. One of the writers of this submission has firsthand knowledge of this, with his 13 year old daughter being slapped by the mother’s female partner, resulting in the father being called to come and remove the daughter from that explosive situation until it was safe for her to return to be with her mother."

It is a pity Lindsay Jackel did not have an Anti Denigration Clause added into his parenting Agreement to speak respectfully of his childs mother. (He changed the names from Lindsay and Susan in an attempt to disguise that it was his Parenting Plan that he wrote. It reveals a very controlling person.) Jackel has been spouting this plan around the Mens Rights groups for many years. Jackels daughter has Aspergers. Jackel has also witten several very spiteful things about his ex wife and posted her personal information on various Christian, Mens Rights and homosexual forums, including the fact that she ran off with another woman.

What the SPCA is really saying about the Child Support Agency

Peter Marsh State Director SPCA Qld said :

"The damage caused by the CSA Part6A review processes since 1997 has forced me and my children to suffer the effects of losing a home, losing the rented premises of ten years that my children knew, my career, my dignity, my health and my future prospects of self support and finally all contact between my children and myself. The CSA has been and still is the largest obstacle between myself and my children and the largest impediment to the future of my children and myself." Subsequent to these events, and what I can only presume to be out of spite xxxxxx wrote to me falsely portraying that I has resigned from the RAP meetings. Suffice to say, I was never invited back and the most senior of officials had orchestrated my removal as a community representative and stakeholder in the operation of Child Support in this country. These factors are an identifier of the endemic culture of the CSA and throw weight to the proposition that the CSA should be xxxxxxand should be xxxxxxxxxx removed from office and the CSA dismantled. "Catherine Argall and Shiela Bird of the CSA should be sacked from the public service and prevented from holding a position in the public service again."

Coral Slattery says Child Sexual Abuse Allegations are RARE!

Coral Slattery (Nemos Mum on Familylawwebguide) and Executive of Shared Parenting Council of Australia, SRL Executive and Executive of Family Law Reform Association says that it is rare for men now to be accused of sexually molesting their children in Family Law matters.

"Dear Michael

I’m sorry to be so late in answering your last email regarding comments made by Michael Green, Q.C.

Michael Green played an integral part in the Family Law reforms which were recently introduced into Australia and endorsed by our association. These innovative reforms have made it possible to move away from litigation and the court system with the introduction of 64 Family Relationship Centres throughout Australia, whose main focus is to encourage the use of early intervention through free counselling and mediation. From my understanding, less than 5% of cases now end up in the Family Court.

Might I add that we’ve now had the opportunity of looking back over three decades to see the damage done to children when parents are consumed by their own situation. Many of the children who have experienced family breakdown have grown up living in poverty because of the exorbitant costs associated with litigation and have been totally alienated from one half of their extended family, not to mention the social costs. This is why it is imperative that we do all we can to keep couples out of the Family Court where a judge will make a decision, rather than an agreement between the parents. We recognise the fact that changing the culture of marriage breakdown won’t happen overnight; in fact, it may take a decade for separating couples to realise that the welfare of their children is their first priority.

I note that you mentioned the case of Hal Ginges, a solicitor in Katoomba. Hal spoke at one of our meetings about 10 years ago on child sexual abuse allegations and we are fully aware of his case. We hold monthly meetings and I can say it is rare these days that we have anyone attending who has been accused of child sexual abuse. A few years ago it seemed to be the “norm” following marriage breakdown, but the courts have now tightened up on those allegations.

I hope that my comments are helpful to you in understanding what we’re trying to achieve. These are my own personal views, but would be endorsed by the majority of our members. Things are changing here in Australia and we’re optimistic about the future for family law reform. Our aim is to keep separating couples out of the Family Court and into counselling and mediation. However, it would be na├»ve of us not to recognise the fact that “one size does not fit all” and inevitably there will always be cases which have to go to the Family Court.

Take care

SPCA publish and condone cheating to avoid Child Support

The Shared Parenting Council members including Michael Green, Wayne Butler and Barry Williams have the following advice published on their website, familylawwebguide where they advise payers of Child Support to use "foul means" to resist responding to a Change Of Assessment for Child Support payable to support their children.

I put all my requests etc to them in writing and they try hard to do everything by phone. My advice to anyone reading here is do business by mobile phone and PO box number. Only concede what you wnat them to know and challenge every decision because there is usually a more advantageous position they want admit to. And never instigate a COA, and if one has been started on you resist it by whatever fair or foul means you can find. And keep your CSA paymnets up to date if you can - because when you win on a point, a refund cheque is a badge of honour.

Looking at the ROOTS of Fathers Rights Groups.

This is an archived page from Familylawwebguide that shows who belongs to who in the so called "Portal" when you can see that it is the same members that are a part of every group, despite trying to maintain that they are all independent.

If you click on each group it will give you a list of the members of that group. For instance the Community Group CRC kids that they steadfastly maintain has NOTHING to do with Shared Parenting Council has as it's list of members:


Director (this is Ed Dabrowski also SPCA)


Secretary_SPCA This is Wayne Butler also SPCA, DOTA, SRL etc
meep This is Paul Mee
Director This is Ed Dabrowski also SPCA
oneadadc This is Graeme Campbell also SPCA, SRL
dad4life This is Lindsay Jackel, also SPCA, DOTA, SRL etc
lfapolad This is Jim Carter also SPCA also Lone Fathers also SRL etc

And if you go through and have a look at all the different groups you will see the same old names. SPCA, CRC, Family Law Reform, DOTA , DIDS they're all the same people in bed with each other. The same guys that have been pitching the same old fathers rights crap for years and still not getting anywhere. They have NO CREDIBILITY and that is why they have to keep changing faces and hiding their identities because without deceit they are nothing but old bitter and twisted guys who never got over their wives leaving them.
Anyone wanting to know who a user name is just contact us but we are publishing a list shortly so keep watching this space.

Just being careful

I know them ALL

Go check on what happened at Sutherland local court last week

And after that we haven't heard back from them and then we found out from a source that TrickyFlicky aka Blissfulignorance99 aka extremeforce11 is an ebay scammer who lives in Sydney and has been ripping people off on Ebay for the past year selling computer games and baby goods. According to Ebay they get kicked off and then sets up new identities.

I just wanted to make people aware that the member called blissfulignorance999 used to be registared as betaglucen09 and he ripped off lots of people by taking money and not sending items. He was removed by Ebay and has now reregistared as blissfulignorance999. I would suggest it is not safe to purchase from this person.

Trickyflicky still visits our blog regularly but it seems the inclination to spill the secrets of Familylawwebguide have passed.

We believe TrickFlicky was a person sent in by the Shared Parenting Councils' Michael Green and Wayne Butler to try to see who we are.

False Child Sexual Abuse Allegations

As Richard Gardner said:

The vast majority (”probably over 95%”) of all sex abuse allegations are valid.”

Gardner, R.A. (1991). Sex Abuse Hysteria: Salem Witch Trials Revisited . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics (pp. 7, 140).

Then you have a judges comments to the AIFs review of the Magellan classification for Family Law cases saying:

The Court can’t ever say that [there was no harm or risk of harm], of course. The best you can say is that, on the evidence, we can’t make a finding that there has been abuse, or even unacceptable risk in some cases. It doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. It just can’t be proved to any decent level of satisfaction.”

By far, there are rare cases of deliberate falsity. It’s a gutsy thing to do, and I think few people have that sort of personality: to go on oath, in the witness box. It’s a pretty gruelling process. You don’t do it unless you really think you’ve got a grievance, because the odds are you are going to get caught out. You’ve got people cross-examining you, you’ve got Independent Children’s Lawyers checking it out, you’ve got a Judge—who’s usually fairly experienced—making assessments. You’re running a real risk.
I also think that a lot of people are deterred from making a false allegation because of the mere fact: How could they have been so wrong in partnering somebody who could do that? ..’”

".....whether Judges are always taking into account that a lack of evidence from a statutory child protection department does not mean that abuse has not occurred. A departmental outcome of ‘unsubstantiated’ does not mean that abuse did not occur and that the notifier’s allegation was false, but rather, that evidence was not sufficient to be able to substantiate the allegation; or that the notification did not fall within the statutory grounds for intervention in that state/territory."

"Although participants admitted that deliberate false allegations happen, this was not seen as the major issue. Instead, they thought that the usual situation was either (a) a parent misidentifying signals from the child, (i.e., making the allegation based on a genuine belief, which turned out to be false—or at least, not supported by the evidence); or (b) that abuse had in fact occurred, but that through the department’s investigations and the Court’s processes, a safe environment had been created, so that the child/young person is now no longer at risk."

“I keep talking gender-specific, but that’s just the nature of Magellan. It’s the man usually who abused the child. But we’ve got to remember of course that there are a number of allegations made against mothers. Because Magellan also encompasses physical abuse, and that is occasionally perpetrated by the mother. Or the partner. Or the partner might be responsible for the fears of sexual abuse. When I talk about gender-specific, I’m talking about the majority. I’m not intending to convey that that is always the case.”

So the conclusion supported by official statistics is that very few false allegations are made, and in any Magellan case, there cannot be a finding that the father was innocent of the allegations only that the claims are not substantiated which does not mean that he is innocent of the allegation, only that there was not enough evidence to prove the allegation. The court does not have the jurisdiction to apportion blame, only to assess the risk to the child/children.

More Deceit by FLWG, here we name the SRL main players

The site is not a portal for various communities, CRC, SRL, DOTA, DIDS, LFAA, Mothers4Equality are all the same people.

The SRL's treat themselves like the elite of Familylawwebguide. Do you want to know who the main players are? We are sure you all do so here they are:

Who Are The Main PLayers in SRL?

SRL Resources


Michael Green (Agog, Sisyphus)

Primary Members

Paul Saurine (Thad50) Also DIDS
Peter Saxon (Clown, Viking, Conan, Getherealfacts, Sneakydevil) Also DIDS, SPCA, F4E

Secondary Members

David Glenmere
Micke Michalek (Monteverdi)
Ian Tuit (Ian Tuit)
Wayne Butler (Oneringrules, Sec SPCA) also DOTA, CRC. SPCA
Jim Carter (lfapolad) also LFAA, SPCA, CRC
Lindsay Jackel (Matrix, Dad4life) also DOTA, SPCA, CRC
Graeme Campbell (oneadadc)
Coral Slattery (Nemos Mum) also SPCA

It is very concerning to see Michael Green head up the Self Represented Litigants Club because he is not allowed to practise law without a current certificate which he doesn't have (easy to check this one) so therefore he is breaking the law.

It has been said by various people who have vigourously tried to deny that the SRL are a part of the Shared Parenting Council and were set up long before familylawwebguide was set up but this list available from an online cached version of the site clearly says that the SRL main players are ONLY members of SPCA. There is only one group controlling the lot and that is SPCA. All of the names are of militant mens rights campaigners and not one of these people are aligned with mothers, women or families. They fight for mens rights. Peter Saxon you are a liar. Anyone be very wary about giving your details to any of the SRL, we have evidence where they used that information inapropriately and the matter is currently under investigation. You have been warned.

What Lindsay Really Thinks About Women

Lindsay Jackel aka Matrix aka Dad4Life cannot hide his hate for all women because his wife left him to become a lesbian. This has fuelled a lifetimes worth of hate for all women that cannot be stopped.

We really pity his daughter and believe the courts should have restricted his contact with her because his views amount to psychological abuse.

It's good to see him being honest on familylawwebguide for a change although as key member of Shared Parenting Council of Australia, they would have to be concerned that their views on women are becoming obvious to not only the public but also to the Australian government.

FLWG sure is attracting some Wicked Stepmothers

Tex1 posted yesterday to the familylawwebguide forums:

General Member

"Hi - I am new to these forums. A quick introduction: I am the fiance to a Dad desperately trying to gain equal shared care of his 3 children aged 5, 7 & 8. The consent orders up until the end of 2008 were every second weekend and half of school holidays as well as additional times agreed upon by both parents (signed in Feb. 2006). The children's mother usually 'allowed' us to have care of the children based on her schedule as long as she was seen as the residential parent - it was all rather flexible and we got to spend lots of time with the children which was great. Come July 2008, their mother decides to tighten the screws and limit us to basically every second weekend and half of school holidays - unless it purely suit her and even then she wanted to 'swap' with one of our weekends or their would be unrest.

Currently, the interim order is every second weekend and half of school holidays - the skids are very upset by this. This was brought about because my fiance kept them after they made serious disclosures which we needed to have investigated before we felt confident the children were safe. There wasn't any malice meant by it, just protection of the children. This now also has to be proven in the court to avoid a contravention. We are confident it will be dismissed due to the nature of the disclosures.

Back to topic.. we have an upcoming Family Court date and we are seeking 50/50 equal shared care. We have had approx. 35% for the past 3yrs (however we've only been able to get the mother to admit this from Sept. 2008 - we have calendars from before that though). The travel distance from our home to the chidlren's school (they are all at school as of this year) is 40mins (according to The mother lives about 2mins drive away from the children's school. My fiance's ex-wife is stating this would be detrimental to every aspect of their lives if this was to occur - due to the distance. We have family support to assist with transportation of the children to and from school whenever they need it. So if we had an arrangement week with mother/week with father then we would be able to easily manage. She refuses to accept our transport arrangements unless it is the father only doing the driving - and, as he works shifts, this would never be reasonably possible. We used to live nearly 2hrs away and the children used to pick them up and take them back at least once a fortnight. We moved 40mins away to see the children more - I travelled 90mins to work each day to enable this. We feel the tightening of the screws happened when the CSA acknowledged we actually had the children overnight (which was always the case but never admitted by the mother).

The children are very used to travelling - since they were 2, 3 & 4 - travelling an hour o spend time with their Dad. We have proof but the mother is swearing that this was never the case. I have financial statements/photographs/ticket stubs/holiday tickets, etc. that could easily prove they were with us at different points. Can these be used?

So my big questions are these:

* Will the court see the 40mins travel for 5, 6 & 8 y.o children as reasonable?

* Can the mother, without any reason or danger to the children, disallow the children to be dropped off/picked up by a close, safe, responsible and familiar relative?

* What documents can we provide to the courts to support our case? And when? And how? (We have a solicitor but we have already thrown a lot of money away on him due to aspects of our case that we already knew about or could have quite easily found out - we still don't have the confidence to self-represent though).

Please help - we are desperate. We know things won't be settled out of court - we have desperately tried and tried. We want to be prepared in every way.

Please respond. We need urgent advice. "

Now that all sounds good (if you ignore the fact that they reported the mother but not out of malice mind you), except if you read the real story that Tex1 was so kind as to provide details on various step parenting forums on the net.

Some quotes from Tex1:

"Thanks - anything to get rid of BM. She is disgusting and we truly believe she has a psychological disorder."

"BF and I have attended 2 meetings with BM and her partner in the last fortnight to try to settle out of court. Before that we have had several meetings with solicitors to try for mediation. No luck - she treated me terribly because I called DoCS (with BF) about disclosures made by the skids. It is all very hard - and, yes, I still believe she has played a big part in happenings of an inappropriate nature - even if she wasn't hands on (which we may never know as she and the children were briefly interviewed). DoCS let the skids down and now we are temporarily worse off than ever before."

"BM is trying to bribe BF into meeting with her (and sometimes the skids) once a month before she will agree out-of-court to 50/50 custody. We don't want to do this but then we don't want to lose the chance of an agreement of care being reached. We think she is bluffing and will sign off anyway - but 3 little kids depend on that bluff! She said the skids need to see their Mum and Dad happy and together, and that they 'need' family meetings."

BM said she is concerned about the travel because it will be hard on us (BF and I) financially."

"No - she wants unrestricted acces to BF all of the time. She wants to call him about non-urgent issues when an email will suffice.

BF is happy to 'fake' pleasantness to BM at changeover, on the phone, etc. It has been happening the whole time. "

"He did this as the children made disclosures to us and DoCS of a serious nature, mentioning bm directly. Bm was barely investigated and talked her way out of it with no consequences - I won't mention here but it would make you ill if you knew. So, DH kept the skids with us until we could take what we still believe were protective measures.

We were stressed and unprepared when she took us to court - and she had every piece of paperwork possible to let the courts know she was 'mother-of the year' material. We looked stupid"

"We are even considering applying for greater than 50% custody of the skids as bm is damaging the skids relationship with DH. "

"meanwhile she has used me to babysit a zillion times"

:BM is constantly emailing us about how much the SD5 and SS7 have difficulties with me"

"My SS8 has been depressed for sometime now."

"I am due to marry BF in about 5 months yet we continue to battle against each other about BM's controlling ways."

"BM used to interfere with our lives here however we have made it quite clear we don't want anything from her in our house. She is dirty and manipulative. I organise the skids to have something for BF and BF organises them when it is my birthday.... no more intereferance from BM - we despise her. "

"he knows he can't do 50/50 without me as he is a shift worker and I am teacher so I am around more and take care of skids a lot by myself. Doesn't seem to stop him from being inconsiderate. When I say that it is outrageous that he would speak to me like he does at times he says things like "Here we go - the martyr" or "You knew what you were getting into when we met"... he's even called me jealous and selfish (since taken back but still damaging)."

"BM is sick - selfish and has caused much much more distress than ever had to occur from a divorce. She has played the skids against their father, etc. She is disgusting."

"She wants constant communication - we want NONE. She is a freak and we're embarrassed to be seen anywhere with her. She is always dirty and underdressed or dressed in rags.... and I am not saying that to be spiteful.... she chooses it to be "alternate". She's also had some abusive episodes.... too touchy feely with BF and sometimes even me! YUK! I'm developing OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) because of her (constantly washing my hands!)."

"Tough love is a must at times, otherwise it will be set up for huge even more dramatic problems in the teen years! Nip it in the bud asap, in my opinion."

The mother is obviously trying to talk to your fiance and work things out with the kids and has offered 50/50 parenting and wants change overs to be friendly but it is YOU that has the problems. You called DOCS on her. Your NSW policeman fiance needs to man up and tell you to back off. You don't care about the kids at all, you just care about yourself and your own petty jealousies. Get over it. Maybe you and Leeahn can form a close and loving liason and bitch about the stepchildren constantly when you're not being a schoolteacher.
Maybe Tex1 the problem lies with you and your jealousy and spiteful nature. You are a bully. Maybe you need a bit of your own"tough love" to show you what for? In the words of Pink Floyd, leave those kids alone!!!

A note to, the women that you are attracting are not helping your cause at all. Leeahn, Tex1 et al really are spiteful witches intent on hurting children and taking mothers to court purely to fuel a hate war. These stepmothers are posting utter bullshit to the mens forums and not telling the truth and that surely can't be good for the Mens Movement can it?

Some more really Good Quotes from Sicko Richard Gardner

On fathers who molest their children.
Essentially Gardner believed that ALL men are pedophiles it is just that some can restrain themselves.

"He has to be helped to appreciate that, even today, it [pedophilia] is a widespread and accepted practice among literally billions of people. He has to appreciate that in our Western society especially, we take a very punitive and moralistic attitude toward such inclinations. He has had a certain amount of back (sic) luck with regard to the place and time he was born with regard to social attitudes toward pedophilia."

Gardner, R.A. (1992). True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics. (p. 593)

He has had bad luck with regard to the place and time he was born with regard to social attitudes toward pedophilia. However, these are not reasons to condemn himself.

Gardner, R.A. (1991). Sex Abuse Hysteria: Salem Witch Trials Revisited . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics. (p. 119)

Therapy with the father should not be spent focusing on the primary problem (I.e., sexual molestation). Instead, therapy should be spent "talking about other things" as the goal of therapy is "to help people forget about their problems"

Gardner, R.A. (1992). True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics. (pp. 585-592)

On Mothers who discover that the father has sexually abused their child.

"Perhaps she can be helped to appreciate that in the history of the world his behavior has probably been more common than the restrained behavior of those who do not sexually abuse their children."

Gardner, R.A. (1992). True and False Accusations of Child Sex Abuse . Cresskill, NJ: Creative Therapeutics. (pp. 585

PS Have you done something about the mullet yet? You might have more luck in the adult personals if you chop that nasty piece of grey hair off the back. We women will let you know a secret, it's downright creepy and considered very unattractive.

"The Glorious Mullet"

Mullets are the best haircut ever.
Would I think about cutting mine into one? Never.
Such an incredible style nothing can top.
Whenever I see one have to completely stop.
I stare in awe and a gaze of sorrow.
I say "Hey, is that a wig I can borrow?"
The Man just laughs at me, thinks his hair is great.
But under my breath I say, "He'll never get a date!
Not with that haircut at least, no way, no how!"
Why, I've seen better haircuts on a cow.
Mullets, however, for them I've always had a nack,
Because they're business in the front and party in the back!
