For decades since the first man burned himself on the family court stairs (Thomas James Ball is a more recent example), the media has perpetuated the myth that fathers are deadbeats. The injustice of the media-parroted label has lingered for three main reasons:
Many people profit from the propaganda
Media channel fears of repercussions from the legal system
Lack of credible data that unjust father removal is an epidemic
Spoiler Alert: Item number three just dissolved.
Family courts have kept data at bay for years repeatedly
sighting protection of children. Even
though common sense states, aggregating court data doesn’t reveal a thing. Other than corruption.
How much money goes through any family courthouse in America? No one can quite say.
It’s unlikely that anytime soon we’ll see a televised round up of the 9 million mothers who are denying custody. That is legal, acceptable behavior. Except it’s not. It’s called parental alienation and more and more studies are defining it as child abuse.
Remind me again why we need studies to prove removing a parent from a child is abuse?
Male suicide rates continue to climb off the charts.
Females outliving men is somehow shrugged off as normal.
The facts are in. Men are forcibly kept from their kids. How many more will die before we collectively drop the deadbeat designation?
