“Why isn't it called violence against anyone act? Unless of course there are more discriminatory measured at directed at men. Which translates into more power to control relationships, children, and the wealth therein.
Almost can call it the legalized social violence and/or disfranchisement of men act.”

“"more discriminatory measured at directed at men." Try making sense. By the way, try reading the bill, you poor-discriminated-against-man-child.”
“Another ridiculousness PR PC feminist farces. When a draft is done and its not 50/50 this PC PR fraud will be exposed. Women are not men's equal and I think this foolish notion has gotten to far when lives and the security of a nation is at risk.
There are no areas in combat for accommodation, affirmative action, set asides. Soldiers pull there weight or people die and missions fail. This isn't the academic, corporate, legal world, where one can complain and whine this is combat.”
“Making debt cheaper and more available as an alternative to working and paying your way through college has a better happy ending. NOT>”

“How can you work and pay your way if you can't find a job? Nowadays a lot of companies won't even look at your resume if you don't have a college education. Additionally, a lot of the jobs that students used to do are now filled by people simply trying to make a living. Even getting a job in a low paying service position, like fast food or retail, is hard these days. My son had to attend a "group interview" with a dozen other applicants for a job at a sandwich shop. These days the idea of "working your way through college" is a fantasy.”

“current education costs make it impossible to "work your way through" like you could 30 or more yrs ago. It's simply not possible. Certainly with decades of stagnant wages and right wing attempts to drive them down even farther.”
“"In a majority of these cases the men do not want full custody, for the ones that want visitation rights, how many of them actually see their children regularly. And for others, how many pay child support regularly?
Oh spare that load of horse sheet. If a man wants custody it a $10,000 retainer to his lawyer, $7,000 for the attorney at litem, and that just the opening dollars. It could go far higher with other cost associated with try to prove the mother is an unfit parent because that's threshold.
No money no custody. Welcome to a man's world.”

“Look, Scott. I agree there are men out there how want and should have custody of their children. But that is not the norm. More often than not, women are left with the care and the expense involved with raising their children and the men just walk away. So why does it seem that the women are always the ones vilified?”
“Lets look at why men are absent or essentially so. 4 days a month visitation isn't being a parent its being a visitor. That why its called visitation...duh! That's not his choice that's the courts system. Can he see them more? Sure. IF SHE ALLOWS IT.
That's the difference between being a custodial parent and a non-noncustodial parent. The custodial parent is in TOTAL CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which I suspect is the real reason for most single mother situations.
When you alienate, disenfranchise, and marginalize the roles of men in the lives of there children and families don't come whining and point the finger at them. They live in a world of pay up or go to jail and do as she says. Its all stick and no carrot. So as a man you do what you can and move on to other family or friends.
At some point a man decides he deserves to have some pride and dignity in his life and not have it sucked out of him leaving him the husk of a man as the price for dealing with this "women."
BTW, God help the poor guy if the kid comes back with a bruise from the bumper car ride. Its lawyers and court room palooza.”

“I think you are the minority on this thread. And I'm sorry if you can't see your children more than you would like. I can't imagine what that must feel like. Just like I can't even begin to understand how my sons' father can go one day without hearing their voices, or attend one of their sporting events, or hug them, or know their girlfriends, or teach them how to drive, or have that dreaded lecture when they get busted for drinking and smoking pot in high school, and on and on and on.”

“You are describing something that happens way too often. I've watched other women do this and more (i.e. refusing contact and telling everyone they don't want the child around the ex because he's "too abusive.") The child is also put in a place where he/she must choose a side, because to continue to love and try to have a relationship with the father puts him/her in a bad spot with the mother (where the child generally must live.)
I agree there are women out there who got screwed, because the man walked out. However, with so many crying victim who truly aren't, it's hard to even want to lend a sympathetic rather than judgmental ear at this point.”

“I feel for you that you got yourself involved with a "bad" woman - one of my son's "baby mama" disappeared with the kid. We know what state she is in, but not which town - and she refuses to let my son see his daughter (I've never gotten to even meet the child). Let him miss one child support payment, and you can bet she'll have Social Services up his keester (her freebie "lawyers"). However, having raised four kids by myself, and knowing quite a number of women who also did that, I think you are in the minority here. My oldest daughter's father came to me TWENTY NINE YEARS later to "apologize". I told him I'm not the one he really hurt and gave him her phone number. Six years later, he still hasn't tried to get in touch with her.”

“Ummm...yeah, I think the author makes it pretty clear she's not talking about dads who participate. She's talking about those who evaporate. But hey, wouldn't want you to miss a chance to spew some misogyny, would we? Good luck with that.”
“The goods new for young men is that young women choosing which college to go to are rejecting those that have a higher majority of women. They want more parity. So now college are practicing the very thing women have come to enjoy in college admissions, gender based affirmative action.
Now if we can get the government and private sector to stop there gender employment set asides and hire on merit then the story of the end of men will end.”
“Or said more succinctly, the markets are being bailout of of another asset bubble (Apples stock prices and huge weighting in the market indexes) by central bank money printing in interventions in the capital markets.
The fake economy, fake stock market, and fake valuation will continue until the dumb (retail donkeys) come back so the bankrupt banks can sell there trillions in worthless assets to them. Then take that money buy gold or other hard assets when the results of money printing, inflation, steals the rest of the retail donkeys money.”
“The whole PR PC exercise isn't about women in combat its about women getting promotions based not on merit but affirmative action, set asides, or accommodations. Its not that women can't fight in combat but that they by the mass can't contribute to the aggregate numbers in combat arms. A few truck drivers, MP's, helicopter pilots, or grave diggers isn't sustained daily infantry action. Comparing or conflating the two is an insult to the infantry and the combat infantry badge.
There no attempt to fight for numerical quality and quantity in infantry because that would require a blatant acknowledgement that training and psychical quantification would have to change. It wouldn't be about women rising to the top by qualifying like men but rather bring men down to there average level. Much like what has been done in the police and fire dept.
Work around static obstacles when time and repetitions are known elements its far from the rapid changing conditions of a battle field.
Its shame the needs of less than 1% females that want to do it, and will still accommodation though, can disparage such a fine and historic membership. The combat infantry badge will be sullied and never again have the honor its now holds. Might as well as paint it pink. The combat infantry badges is now worthless.
Feminism hasn't made women more equal its created and illusion of equality by destroying the best in what it is to be a man.”

“Please excuse the poor grammar and bad sentence structure. I'm just a grunt. ”
“More pandering for writing credits. Fact is when we look at what happen when these same "if they qualify" claims are put to the test like when it was the police and fire dept it didn't hold water. Height requirements, physical test, real crime/fire scene responses saw dramatic diffidence that all but excluded every female.
What did they do? Lowered standards to accommodate the fiction of equality.
Since Title 9 women sports in high school and college have had equal financial support. To this day no Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Soccer, or Football scout has seen even 1 female that can make the "jump." keep in mind that these females are the most physically fit and most likely the candidates for inclusion into the Infantry. Not all boys make the jump but they still haven't integrated high school/college sports for a reason.”

“Fire and police departments seem to be doing fine after the integration so whatever point you're hoping to make is busted.”
