Mothers Can't Win in a Patriarchal System--filled with "Custody Evaluators"

(emphasis mine)

The Double Bind for Mothers

The indifference to domestic violence demonstrated by some custody evaluators puts women in an impossible bind. Society holds mothers to an exacting standard with respect to protecting their children--throughout the country battered mothers are regularly prosecuted for neglect for "allowing" their children to witness domestic violence or for failing to seek an order of protection and leave the relationship.

These evaluators have been through some type of personal trauma and are therefore utterly biased and using the field of psychology (popseudoscience) for retribution.
