Gurus, rape, and fatherless girls

The founder of the world famous Bikram Yoga is accused of raping students in a cult-like training, and this is yet another example of the way fatherless girls make up the majority of the followers and victims of gurus according to a male human behavior expert.

“Girls who have poor relationships with their dads tend to seek attention from other males at earlier ages and they are more susceptible to becoming victims and prey for sexual predators” says Human Behavior & Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.

“Females make up the largest audience and consumers of self-help and personal development because they are motivated by the desire to evolve, grow and continually change”, says Dr. Wanis who also states: “For women, the greatest aphrodisiac is power – men in power are a great turn-on to women. But the greatest victims, the most vulnerable are those girls and women who have various key emotional needs that were never met because of a father that was silent, abusive or simply not involved in the young girl’s critical childhood development.”

It’s claimed that Bikram Choudhury, founder of Bikram Yoga, “used his status as a guru to identify and victimize the most vulnerable women from among his flock, grooming them, breaking down barriers, and ultimately assaulting them when they were at their most physically, emotionally, or financially vulnerable,” according to court papers filed in California against Bikram Choudhury. He is accused of rape, sexual battery, fraud and false imprisonment.  He faces six separate civil lawsuits from women accusing him of sexual assault or rape.

“A girl’s childhood relationship with her father will affect the quality of her adult relationships with men, her sexual activity, self-esteem, weight, success in life and happiness” says Dr. Wanis. “Unless she has a real father involved in her life, she will easily become prey for sexual predators and other charismatic men who will ultimately use and abuse them. Charles Manson’s followers were mostly young women – lost women who were seeking meaning and purpose and a strong male leader or father figure. At one stage, Manson had 19 women living with him in one house.”

“Studies also reveal that teens in single-mother households are 30 percent more likely than teens in married-mom-and-dad-families to engage in risky behavior like drinking, drugs, delinquency, and dropping out of school.”

 “I’m not dressed like a guru am I? I dress like a gangster. Like Robert De Niro. I am more westernised than any western man you have ever met.” – Bikram Choudury

Extra talking points:

  • Gurus rape girls claiming it is a blessing: Bikram Choudhury, the founder of the Bikram school of hot yoga, told a student “I need to spiritually enlighten you” as he raped her, according to one of a blizzard of lawsuits against him; girls would brush his hair and massage his shoulders while he was teaching.
  • Do children need two parents? Is dad more important than mom? Contrary to popular belief, raising daughters is not the lone responsibility of mothers, and neither gender on its own makes a better parent, because in a US study of 10,000 students, the surprising characteristic of strong father-daughter relationships was not duplicated between mothers and daughters.  Read more:
