Today, Ending Victimisation and Blame (Everyday Victim Blaming) published a brilliant article by Jean Hatchet on the government’s new plans to charge the mother for the father’s financial abuse of their children. A refusal to pay maintenance, deliberately falsifying revenue to decrease maintenance and hiding assets are financial child abuse. Men who do this prefer their children to live in poverty rather than supporting them and our government is colluding with them.
This is the response from a member of Fathers 4 Justice* (who claims to be a teacher):
you know … just because you’ve been rejected by every man in your life, doesn’t mean we’re all the same.
… a sexist, bigoted loon
… just because you’ve been rejected by every man in your life, doesn’t mean we’re all the same.
This is Fathers 4 Justice. Their members replicate this abusive behaviour all over the net as I wrote about here and other women have documented here, here, here, and here . These are not silly men who miss their children and run about dressed as Batman. The refusal of the organisation to deny the behaviour of those who issue violent threats (like shooting me in the head) and those who post misogynistic, homophobic, disablist language like above shows clearly what Fathers 4 Justice cares about. And, it isn’t their children they claim so desperately to miss.
