Rex’s speech gives a very good list of issues, which is as relevant today as it was in 2002.
I would venture to suggest that mothers have as many complaints about familycaught$.
Society will not accept any changes, unless they improve outcomes as seen by women too. If we hope for changes that improve the acceptance of fathers and improve outcomes for fathers, then we need to listen more carefully to women’s complaints and understand the feelings and the factual basis of their complaints.
For all of the supposed changes, I guess a change is as good as a rest. I don’t see any substantive positive changes occurring. If anything, the familycaught$ is more mercenary about their personal incomes, than they have been at any time in the past. Family outcomes are regularly sacrificed, for their own personal benefit.
The talking is disguising a lack of constructive outcomes in familycaught$ and we must keep focussing on the quality of outcomes and the cost effectiveness with which they are being achieved. On both counts progress is going backwards.
