I am so sick of hearing this idea that every time a woman reports that a partner/ex-partner is being abusive towards their children, that it is regarded as an attempt by the woman to discredit the man in an upcoming court case. At least do some background checks before coming to a conclusion. To believe this often means ignoring all existing facts. Why is it that the ex-husband is automatically believed but the woman is not trusted when clearly it is men killing women? Believe women.
