A few weeks ago, the Argentinean documentary Borrando a Papá (Erasing Dad) was released on the Internet. I’ve been waiting to get a chance to see this full-feature documentary for roughly two months since I read on AVfM’s Voice of Europe radio program that the feminists tried really, really hard to get this documentary censored in that country.
My gut feeling always tells me that if something is heavily censored or frowned upon by a totalitarian authority, then it clearly must be on to something and that particular work needs to be read/seen as soon as possible. And Borrando a Papá didn’t disappoint—on the contrary, it turned out to be far better than I could’ve expected. And herein lies the paradox that bothers me—the fact that it’s such a good documentary means that it made me sick watching it …
Borrando a Papá shows the full misery that Argentinean fathers and children are going through at the hands of the Argentinean state, whose policies are being enforced by ideologues with a terribly warped worldview.
Seeing the movie also made me understand why the feminists wanted so badly to keep this documentary away from the Argentine public. The filmmakers managed to catch on tape various ideologues bragging smilingly about how they mistreat fathers or how they thought that a mother murdering her six-year-old son “to fuck up the father” (her exact words!) are not an indication of a misguided system, even though the father had complained officially about the problem for at least three months before the event.
The documentary sinks its teeth into the very real Evil Empire, as our Editor-at-Large, Erin Pizzey, would put it. In fact, they even brought Pizzey into the documentary, using the footage published by manwomanmyth on YouTube.
The filmmakers expose to the world at large how the work of a chronic child abuser and leader of a gang of pedophiles, Jorge Corsi, essentially ended up influencing the policy on family not just in Argentina but also in Chile, Brazil, the USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and a few other nations.
Very few people even know who Corsi is. Googling his name results only in links in Spanish—but this individual designed what is now called “the Corsi method,” which is allegedly a method of diagnosing sexual abuse and violence—a method that is a variation of the Duluth Model, only it’s more insidious and broader in scope than just domestic violence.
Corsi started the first master’s degree in family violence in 1989. In his entire curricula, there’s no mention about women being abusers or men being victims. In this “expert’s” opinion, such a thing does not exist. He also designed the so-called “violent man test,” which he himself says can even be completed without interviewing the alleged violent man. I won’t say more on this because you have to see it for yourselves in the documentary. This is literally a case of “you can’t make this stuff up!”
The most shocking footage for me included the comments made by Lilian Hendel, a psychologist and TV columnist, who said upfront that she believes all men who allege violence are liars and that women rarely, if ever, lie about such things. And consequently she thinks that the burden of proof in what she calls “gender-based violence” cases should be reversed. “If I say he’s guilty, then he is until he can prove otherwise”—her exact words. To understand what she meant by “gender-based violence,” I suggest you read my series about Spanish gender Stalinism that I wrote over a year ago (part I, part II, and this article).
Equally abhorrent are the words of the staff at “Shalom Bait”—which is a centre for protection of victims of domestic violence. One of their staff members just outright says that they prefer advising women to file violence allegations (regardless of the truth) instead of dealing with a fair court trial. Why do they prefer this? Because the courts tend to follow “the ideology that the father is important.” Yep, you read it right! An employee of the Argentinean state, a public servant, thinks that fathers’ importance is an ideology!
It’s hard even to merely list all the abhorrent stuff that’s being presented in the film without laying out the entire documentary. Watching this documentary almost makes you feel pain—in a quite literal sense.
Andrei Costea, one of the editors at AVfM Romania, said that:
A big State in collusion with feminist ideology results in hatred against humanity. This is not merely a societal cancer. One can still deal with cancer and save some patients. But with feminism, it’s just almost a war against humanity. I for one cannot see the facts presented in this documentary as anything else but a direct attack towards humanity itself.
What I also appreciated about this documentary is that it also provides an international perspective, thus putting the blame where it stands—at the ideologues’ feet, which fly from nation to nation and tear families apart. Images from fathers’ protests from France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Chile, the UK, and the US are presented.
In other words, this documentary has an almost perfect balance of emotion, cold facts, exposing of the Evil Empire, talk about the financial interests in the industry, and an appropriate international perspective on things. And for these reasons, I’ll go as far as to say that Borrando a Papá is a far better documentary than Divorce Corp, which in my eyes is way too weak and incomplete.
And that’s all I’m going to say. Now please go and watch Borrando a Papá over at AVFM en Español. The video has English subtitles (just click CC), which I can attest are properly done and properly synchronized.
Seriously, Borrando a Papá is a definite must-watch, and it should be at the very least in the all-time top-five best non-feminist productions.
