Renuka is playing games with men’s rights

Feminists have always tried to draw men into their fold and Renuka is no exception. She recently organized a roundtable to achieve just this under the pretext of building partnerships with men to promote women’s empowerment and gender equality.

HERE IS THE AGENDA AS OF JUNE 17TH PER AN INVITATION SENT TO A PROMINENT NGO

With the growing popularity of SIF and other organizations in India that have heightened the awareness around the misuse of gender biased laws like 498A and the DV act, the feminists have felt pressure to respond. On the 23rd of June, Renuka says that the agenda for the roundtable is to discuss misuse of laws by women

Then one day before the event, Renuka says that the agenda has changed

So I ask what the hell is Renuka upto? Well it is pretty clear, ain’t it? She never planned to discuss men’s rights and gender biased laws, did she? NO, all she wanted was to get it out in the media that the WCD was actively looking into the issue. Once that was achieved she backtracked. We need to get rid of incorrigible feminists whose attitude is “my way or the highway”. It is a shame that such folks can even hold prominent political positions in the world’s largest democracy.

Honor our Fathers: Sons and Gangs

“How about the young men in the gangs?

Do they have fathers living with them?”

“No way, man. None of them do.”

“So maybe fathers make a difference?” I suggested.

“Absolutely, man. Absolutely.”

“Why?” I probed. “What difference does a father make?”

“He’s always behind you, man, pushing you. Keeping you in line.”

Dads and Daughters: The Unbreakable Bond

Tiger Woods recently won the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines despite a painful injury, and there was a beautiful little scene afterwards. Tiger was walking while holding his little 1-year-old daughter Sam Alexis Woods in his arms. Given the media crush and his leg injury, he decided to hand the girl over to his wife Elin Nordegren. Once the girl was in mom’s arms she immediately turned back to dad and reached for him, and Tiger took her back. It was a touching scene that brings back wonderful memories for any dad.

Obama’s incomplete plea on fatherhood

kATHLEEN PARKER’S brilliant article highlights:

That America’s fathers need to embrace their most important role is no secret.

But neither are all absent by choice, as Obama’s message implied.

His plea to fathers came on Father’s Day, a time we usually reserve for praising good men.

We pause briefly to ponder the kind of response Obama might have received had he decided to criticize negligent moms on Mother’s Day. No one in his right mind would do such a thing, but we’re so accustomed to dissing dads that even a Father’s Day reprimand leaves America’s eyelashes unruffled.

Changing the system won’t be easy, but Obama is uniquely positioned to make a difference in the conversation. He should begin by saying that bringing fathers back into the family means ending the demonization of men and the culture’s trivialization of fatherhood.

That would be a change we could believe in.

HMA breaking more homes than uniting

“The Hindu Marriages Act has broken more homes than uniting,” a vacation Bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and G S Singhvi observed.

The apex court regretted that the growing number of divorce cases in the country was having a disastrous effect on children of families which get broken in such a manner.

“Ego should get dissolved for the sake of the child,” the Bench remarked even as the separated parents tried to air their views.

Why is it hard to get Shared Parenting Bills passed?

In 2004, a public policy question was put to Massachusetts voters regarding shared parenting. Shared parenting is a rebuttable presumption that parents should have joint physical and legal custody of children, which may be rebutted by evidence that one parent is unfit (i.e., he or she is drug dependent, violent, absent, abusive, neglectful, etc.) or that it is not workable through no fault of one of the parents.

The public policy question was put on about 25 percent of all districts and garnered 87 percent public support. Because the number of districts was so high, its accuracy as a barometer of public sentiment is beyond all reasonable dispute.

However, two legislative cycles after the landmark 2004 public policy question, shared parenting did not become the law in Massachusetts. Gov. Deval Patrick has publically indicated his support for shared parenting, yet that has not prevented shared parenting legislation from twice dying. Given such overwhelming support by the Massachusetts voting public and the psychological community, why hasn’t shared parenting been passed into law?

feminist extremists and greedy trial lawyers is the ANSWER

Father’s Day Articles and Stories

So how did it all start? William Smart, a veteran of the American Civil War, was left alone with his six children on a farm in eastern Washington state when his wife died giving birth to the youngest. One of his daughters wanted to honor her father’s strength and selflessness in raising his family alone, and proposed the idea of Father’s Day in 1909.

The role of fathers is changing. In 2006, there were 2.5 million single fathers living with their children, up from 400,000 in 1970, and comprising 19 percent of all single parents, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. About 42 percent of single fathers are divorced, 38 percent were never married and almost three-quarters had annual incomes of less than $50,000. Among the fathers who are still married, an estimated 159,000 stay at home to look after 283,000 children while their wives go out to work. About 2.9 million preschoolers, or 25 percent of the total, are regularly cared for by their father during their mother’s working hours, according to federal figures.

Dad’s changing role

The cab of Paul Goncalves’ truck looks more like a hospital room than the helm of a mighty 18-wheeler. “I’ll tell you, life has been so miserable,” Goncalves said Tuesday after carefully dressing a shunt that drains liquid from the brain of his constant passenger — his two-year-old son, Pauly. Pauly was born with hydrocephalus, an accumulation of spinal fluid on the brain. Doctors recently removed a brain cyst. In his short life, Pauly has had five brain operations.

Paul, Is he a hero father or what?

Then there is this sap who has no clue that fatherlessness is caused by family courts and vengeant psychotic mothers
