Enabling child abuse in West Virginia

Judge Lori B. Jackson is now joined by Judge James Mathis in enabling child abusers as long as they’re women.

One of the oddities of modern discourse on domestic abuse is that women commit the vast majority of violent child abuse. And the overwhelming majority of murders of prepubescent children. Yet still, the belief persists in most people that men are dangerous around children, and in incredibly infantalizing fashion, women are presumed safe around them.
