This was on yahoo new's page. What a sad state of the world we live in seeing as divorce seems to be the "norm" anymore.

I'm sorry, James, but I have to pipe up here.

This article is complete rubbish. It tries to place the blame of child abuse where it truthfully doesn't belong. It tries to tell us that children in co-habitating families are more likely to be abused when the fact is that these children were just as likely to be abused before the issues that caused the co-habitation to take place occurred. Plus, it completely ignores the fact that children are much less likely to disclose abuse that is perpetuated by their biological parents than they are to disclose abuse by a parent's boyfriend/girlfriend or stepdad/stepmom.

I'm also very disappointed with the "evidence" that was cited. If an article is going to cite a study, the author has some sort of responsbility to supply some of the data that went into the study instead of just saying, "David Finkelhor's uncited evidence gives this opinion". What the article fails to mention is that this same David Finkelhor has also published several studies that say that as many as 40% of abuse perpetrators are women, yet this article consistantly places the blame on men.

I want to see some data that I can make an attempt to refute, not just posting some opinions on some people who are allegedly experts in the field. There is no evidence of anything in this article. Just improperly cited gibberish.

Thanks, James. I was hoping you wouldn't be offended, but as I read the article, I just kept getting more and more angry.

Nope not at all... I understand what your saying..what I got from it is that it's kind of a new number they are tracking and like all new stats it always starts off screwy.
