    International Men's Day: November 19.

    Stop the violence, both men and boys have a right to be safe.

    Sad fact is that bot men and boys are subjected to the most violence, and not women.

    By is it that women will cry out Stop the Violence, but when it's men being abused they look the other way and say and do nothing?

    Why is it that a women can cry out send me to jail and my children will suffer, and they walk free. But a father goes to jail.

    Regardless of our sexual preference we are all also men and boys, and not just homosexuals or bisexuality.

    It's funny how International Women's Day gets a bunch of hype yet this goes hush hush.

    I have thought the same thing myself. I have been surprised in my female dominated workplace, that there have been women who have tried to stop me from promoting International Men's day. To the point they have become very nasty.

    but sadly there are women who want to promote women as the victims of violence, and men the perpetrators. But since both men and boys are subjected to the most violence at the hands of both men and women, their propaganda does not hold up.

    One main place I would like to see change now, is in the family Law courts as the discrimination towards men is outrages. sadly this is wide spread, in countries like Australia and America too.

    It's sad that a little girl in Australia can be told: You can be Pm someday, and little boys are told to do as they are told. men helped liberate women, yet failed to liberate themselves.

    IMO, if child custody is going to end up being decided in court, the ideal mandatory arrangement should be 50/50 physical and legal.

    Aristoshark saidShared custody is nice but not necessary, and sometimes not in the kids' best interest. When my wife and her girlfriend moved to the suburbs, I agreed to give them custody in exchange for huge amounts of visitation. Of course, it was all pre-arranged and amicable---I realize I made it sound adversarial and it wasn't anything like that. The gals wanted me to be involved as much as possible, and I was. I took them into the city most weekends and came out to the burbs for dinner with them Wednesday nights. It worked fine.

    But Aristo, I'm assuming in your case, with all of the facts you've provided, you managed to settle custody without having to go through all of the legal grief.

    When I said that 50/50 physical and legal should be mandatory, I was saying that for purposes of those who decide to undergo the grief of adversarial litigation when deciding custody.

    If the soon-to-be exes have something set up, great. That'd be even more ideal, IMO.

    Yes but in Australia the pendulum of justice in the family law courts is not 50/50 or it would not be the issue it is. It's more like 80% for women, and 20% for men; but they say the children come firsticon_rolleyes.gif Women are able to use their children to attack and punish their ex; and sadly it's done way to much. The father may get vitiation rights for weekends, and the mother moves interstate with the kids preventing shared vitiation. We need to get that pendulum of justice to 50/50%.

    Yes it is also different if you don't bring in the courts and are able to come to your own agreement when it comes to whats best for the kids.

    That is wrong and the UK definitely needs to change that law. What if the woman was found to be a totally unfit parent, would she still be lawfully entitled to full custodyicon_question.gif

    The way Western family law works, the only way a Mom can lose custody is if they find 100 tons crack in her trunk or she beats her child into a coma.

    Meanwhile, during custody proceedings, a woman can simply accuse her soon-to-be ex of domestic violence and/or marital rape, and it's over for him. A woman's word means she's NEVER lying, you know.

    And liberals have the gall to say WOMEN have it hard in Western society. For being such a "patriarchy," the Western world doesn't seem to endow men with a whole lot of rights.

    Western family law is definitely one sided and needs major changes. Women have too many special rights and priviledges. It is time to pare back some of those rights and level the legal playing field. But some of these extremist liberal hens will keep polluting the air that women are never wrong and it is only the man that causes all the problems when the total opposite is the truth. No wonder many straight guys want no part of marriage these days, who can blame them. It is the women who are the serious problem now because they have too many special rights.
