Rights of Parents are being infringed

There have been a couple of cases in the (mostly U.S) News recently that highlight the over-reach of the state into parenting.

In this case a Texas Dad was basically charged with Theft for taking away his 12yo daughters cell-phone as punishment for her poor choice of language in an text.  He maintained that the whole discipline incident was completely within his right as a parent and the intervention of Police should never have happened.  The judge threw out the case.




In Maryland a couple is challenging state legislation governing Child Protective Services as too vague and therefore violates the rights of parents under the U.S Constitution. They were investigated 3 times for allowing their children (aged 10 and 6 at the time) to walk a couple blocks back to their house from a nearby park.

A Nebraska Judge has ruled that State Judiciary must reveal the materials they use to train its judges in child custody and parenting time cases - as the disconnect between what is considered "In the Best Interests of the Child" according to most social research that strongly supports children spending time with both parents is in stark contrast to Court judgements that have Fathers only seeing their kids 17% of the time.

All of these U.S cases are woeful examples of Judicial, Prosecutorial and Legislative laxity and over reach that effect the rights of parents to  raise and enjoy the company of their children.

Which leads to a possible Liberal Election promise of PM Trudeau that would re-criminalize spanking of children.   It was reviewed under the Conservatives and sensibly revised - but Trudeau has signaled he would bring back.  Why?

Here was a letter that opposed this move:
Re: A Spanking Is In Order, editorial, Dec. 22.In a discussion about something as as significant culturally as the spanking law, one would hope a longer view of the impact such a decision would have on people  would be taken. Increasing violence, especially against the most vulnerable, is a valid and just concern, but outlawing spanking might be barking up the wrong tree. 
Anti-spanking advocates might do well to consider the case of Sweden, which outlawed spanking in 1979. The hope was that a decline in violence would follow, but The Swedish National Council on Crime Prevention and the Swedish Crime Survey report some surprising statistics. As of 2012, increases in sexual assault have been five-fold, assault and aggravated assault have tripled, and trends in shoplifting, vandalism, and drunkenness have followed suit. Equally shocking is  the increase in assaults by youth on children of more than 480 per cent, making Sweden more criminal per capita than the United States. 
This seems counter-intuitive. Perhaps we underestimate the good impact parents are free to have when allowed to exercise authoritative restraint over their children, which is not the same thing as abuse. In a decision so directly connected to the fabric of the nation, could we call for broader dialogue?

Counter-Feminist presents a case

This is link to excellent (but long 1:37 h:m) compilation by now underground Counter-Feminist Christy0Misty (from I believe the rabidly infested blue/feminist state of Wisconsin).  She makes some excellent points - and ends with an remarkable challenge - and this was in 2009?

Another egregious example of False Allegations jails innocent man 19mths

This terrible injustice was covered in a San Diego CA newscast.

He was facing 35 years because of baseless claims made by a drug-addicted women who was actually 23 with 3 kids and was well known to police.

Official Feminists in Canada - blink

Official Feminists in Canada - blink


68% of Canadian women don’t call themselves a feminist

Of course - even those numbers don't seem right - except that the traditional readership of one of Canada's premiere magazine titles could have stated it smugly as "32% of Canadian Women reaffirm commitment to Feminism".  The actual title represents an effort to "jinn-up" their diminishing readership base and create an opportunity to prop-up that failing brand by repeating the feminist mantra - ad nausium.  Only a few years ago that figure was 20% (although that was from a properly represented sample and not one as self-selectively biased as Chatelaine).

But the cover - 40 almost exclusively white, middle-aged, middle-class women - gave it away - despite the accompanying video with primped and edgy avowels and a few honest, questioning souls.

No, this was a swan song "call to defend" the gynocentric ubercult - which seems finally to be finding itself under cultural siege - despite help from "the Dauphin" Trudeau.  His Chief of Staff'Katy Telfords solution to waning popularity?  Double-down!

More of us should call ourselves Feminists!

NS Dad ordered to pay one of largest Custody Awards ever

Mother wins $13.4 million in child support settlement from Nova Scotia developer after lengthy court battle.


Hard to tell exactly what precipitated such a large award - but clearly the Dad was not incented to litigate the case.  He decamped some time ago and appears negotiated with his Ex from the safety of a foreign country without an enforceable extradition treaty with Canada. 

And he was a millionaire. 

That helps.

Not sure I trust the rather biased article given most commentary was from Mom's lawyer.

What needs to asked is - does this kind of award indicate Canada is no better/worse than other international jurisdiction like London UK or Florida/California USA when it comes to insane child custody awards?

Fiamengo File: Repressive Tolerance and Safe Spaces

Women experience 3x Mental Illness as Men?

I recall this factoid from Louann Brizendine's book "The Female Brain" and it comes back to me whenever I read an account such as this...

Among the interesting clues she was crazy:  She decided to go Sky-Diving and have a Three-some with her Husband just before she decided to become a Callgirl.

Just in case your girlfriend suddenly picks up odd habits.

Courts micro-manage Family

Seriously?

Is this what we have become?

This is the kind of micro-managing that our Courts have fallen too then there is no hope for Canada.  My only question is if the parents will have to go all the way to the Supreme Court to succeed.

Where a sex-saturated culture leads

Michigan Court puts Zach Anderson was put on the sex offender list at age 19 after having sex with an underage girl. Now he is hoping to have his name removed from the registry.  h/t A Voice for Men

But - it was not his fault. She lied.  Does that matter?
Apparently not.

Just to make it clearer - here is a Feminist to explain the difference.
