Lesbian Mom Describes How She Got the Dad Treatment
Glen Sacks provides us insight into the irony of this topical story in the USA.
Miller’s actions read like a checklist of what heterosexual women do to the fathers of their children:
1) Move the child far way from the child’s noncustodial parent after the divorce or separation–check.
2) Deny the noncustodial parent the opportunity to visit or co-parent the child–check.
3) Make an unsupported, dubious and oh-so-convenient accusation of abuse against the noncustodial parent–check.
4) Pretend that the noncustodial parent is out-of-line or acting against the child’s best interests by wanting to continue the relationship with the child–check.
Other familiar highlights include: the relationship was ended by the child’s birth mother, just as most marriages are ended by mothers, not fathers; and the relationship soured because–guess what–the birth mother was hormonal and unstable during and after her pregnancy.
