“Deadbeat Moms” also Out Number Men in the US!

If you can remember back a few months ago there was a fact that came out of the UK on separated mothers without kids being slightly less likely to pay support than their badly badmouthed counterparts or fathers. Some new stats that I’ve just become aware from Glenn Sacks in the US show the same picture there, but even stronger.

“This isn’t surprising–as I’ve mentioned in the past, according to US Census data, noncustodial mothers are 20% more likely to default on their child support obligations than noncustodial fathers. This is despite the fact that noncustodial mothers are less likely to be required to pay child support, and those with support obligations are asked to pay a lower percentage of their income in child support than noncustodial fathers. Partly because of this, custodial fathers are three and a half times as likely to work long work weeks as custodial mothers.”

The fact that no one seems to care about these stats, and instead we hear endless wailing on (with extreme prejudice) about “Bad Dads” in articles followed by nasty legislation in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, the US, the UK, Europe and all over the world is insane, unless you see this as nothing more than emotional rationalizations in the extreme!

What measure of logical allows this to go on, unless it has nothing to do with logic, but instead emotions and tax revenue. We have men in our ranks fumbling to find nice ways to not scare women in their feeble attempt to say I’m not like these “bad guys”, to a sex that has a worse record. What are the records of “Dead Beat Mothers” in countries like New Zealand, Australia and Canada? Do they match these government numbers in the US & UK? Are these countries trying to hide these stats or intentionally distorting them knowingly?

Will we hear in the future, “Well let’s not point fingers and move on” right away after these factors come to light, as government practice more damage control? It is time to see these things for what they are (that being), dishonorable political foxes at play who will continue to play this game until better men & women find some way to cooperate.

The information needs to get out and be shouted at feminists and their political front men and forced to answer for why “Dead Beat Mothers” seems to never pass their lips. How long will moderate men continue to say, “Now…now…don’t get angry”?
