I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Feminists Rant ~ Rudov’s Sexism Strikes Again – Takes On Shriver’s “Woman’s Nation”

A new post on a Feminist propaganda site lambasting Marc Rudov and my observations. Here is a little dose below of the greater than "equality" you have and at the same time you have the impudence and audacity to call a man sexist for challenging you on it. Where are the good old days when feminism was about equality not advantage. There are imbalances in the gender equation favouring women and you do nothing to try and stop the gender war but keep adding flame to the fire. You still use your outworn, outmoded and tiring shaming tactics to call men misogynists for challenging female advantages and feminists. You equate people like me who have absolutely no use for your feminist propaganda as hating women. Not so girls - I just hate your ideology based on victim hood. Some day you will actually grow up and be able to stand on your own two feet without the nanny state as your new patriarch. Have a peek here and see if this is equal. Professor Mark Perry at UoMichigan shows the following: Associate’s degrees: 167 for women for every 100 for men. Bachelor’s degrees: 142 for women for every 100 for men. Master’s degrees: 159 for women for every 100 for men. Professional degrees: 104 for women for every 100 for men. Doctoral degrees: 107 for women for every 100 for men. Degrees at all levels: 148 for women for every 100 for men. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Equality is a two way street but if I were a man I would start taking notice of the clear swing of the pendulum in education and elsewhere.

Fox News regular Mark Rudov has taken on Shriver’s recent “A Woman’s Nation” report in a sexist, demeaning column at Accuracy in Media on Monday (hat tip to Media Matters). In an extended sexist rant, Rudov gripes about legislation that protects women from rape, domestic violence, and harmful workplace practices, arguing that they have come about only because “spineless men fear retribution from feminists and sexual retaliation from their wives for writing, passing, enforcing, and adjudicating gender-neutral laws.” In his “analysis,” Rudov illustrates his relentless misogyny yet again and conveniently ignores the millions of American citizens that support protections for women, as well as a history of violence against women that has made such legislation a necessity. In a snarky closing, Rudov offers a “silver lining in your estrogen cloud” which states that America is a “matriarchy, a gynocracy. Women are in control. They no longer need, and therefore cannot require, men to support them financially — at any time, in any way, for any reason.” However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. While the Shriver report marks an historic turning point in the American workforce – which is now half women – it also outlines some of the ways we need to grow as a country, many of which Gloria Steinem wrote about in her exclusive for the Women’s Media Center, “It’s Not a Man’s World or a Woman’s Nation.” And with nearly 20% of cable-watching Americans claiming it as their main source for national and international news, Rudov’s frequent appearances on Fox News spread misinformation and sexism which is destructive to these goals. Have you witnessed sexism on your television, computer screen, newspaper, or radio? Help the WMC monitor the media, and tell us about it. http://womensmediacenter.com/wordpress/2009/11/rudovs-sexism-strikes-again-%E2%80%93-takes-on-shrivers-womans-nation/#comment-6375
