Yes. Every counsellor who helped me out after leaving G could not believe that I "allowed" him visitation. They even accused me of not actually leaving him and just trying to attempt welfare fraud because they couldn't wrap their heads around why I felt it was important for our kids to comings a relationship with their bio father. I just.

Anyway, turns out he didn't want a relationship with them so it's neither here nor there. Regardless, it was difficult being "called out" repeatedly over such a sensitive issue by people whom are ultimately supposed to be offering support. I quit coniding in my counsellor and she thought I returned to him. I think she was so burnt out by her job but it really pissed me off to watch a fellow feminist become so latched to stereotypes.

Wow. That's.. really something. I find it easy to imagine though - I've met very few people who don't harbour some kind of judgement around the issue of abused mothers and how they should behave.

I'm sorry that happened to you. *hugs*
