Father Expresses His Opinion About Parenting Order

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 11:03 am Fri 11th August 2023

This father’s expression of remorse following his act of martyrdom was sensible given he was looking down the barrel of a long prison sentence. It’s a shame though that so many people cave in to bullying and abandon their ethical positions by later agreeing they were wrong.

Of course, we would never encourage the use of violence against our violent, child-abusing, male-denigrating state.

Interesting that some favoured groups in the Woke era are able to break the law with impunity, such as by trespassing on (‘occupying’) other people’s property for extended time periods. Yet when a father tries to protect his child and his bonding with that child he no longer even has the partial defence of provocation available to him legally and he is treated as though he had no ethical basis to his acts of resistance.


  1. How did that happen, that this is a service police provide.
    Why isn’t the first step, the person dealing with the couple.
    The police a last resort, to communication failing.

    I don’t like the violence, I don’t like his situation.
    Your not a man, if you don’t protect your children.
    Was the situation, what caused the violence.

    Why are we deciding custody, why isn’t it 50:50.
    Do we have proof now, he wants to be a parent.
    Was he before this event that bad, the courts had to say no.

    His violence, ruins the argument.
    We cannot say he was good, but made to be bad.
    A normal thinking person, doesn’t just attack innocent people.

  2. Interesting that we are only reading ‘half the story’.

    Seems to me that the father didn’t agree with family court ruling since it was only done a day before.

    I still remember the family court believing my daughter was a lair, took her away from me even though the criminal court believed the child.

  3. Yes I agree, we get a tiny part of events.
    This may be just an example, this happens a lot.
    This one gets the headlines, a person was injured.
    But many more cases exist, with lower levels of violence.
    Some form of resistance, out of desperation by the parent.

    Family court stuff, is censored to some extent.
    We may ask the media, is the balance right.
    Can we be informed, and still have our privacy.
    It may be us, the media is examining.
    It can only write the story, that it is allowed to write.

    Maybe that’s the problem, we only get stories.
    Did they ask in the media, how often this happens.
    Give us some idea, if this violence is rare violence.
    It may not be rare, but having high rates instead.
    Uplifts always difficult events, and why police do it.

    Just as men may behave badly, do mothers behave badly.
