Father’s and Men’s Rights

“I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations…. If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay”

-Emily Lindin, The Unslut Project and Contributing Writer, Teen Vogue

If you haven’t been a victim of The Big Bad Patriarchy, well, you must have a Y chromosome.  At least, that’s a view that has taken root in Western society in your lifetime. The Feminist-Victimist Complex has taken aim at the fundamental rights of fathers, men, and boys, purposefully eroding them everywhere from the courtroom to the classroom.

But wait.  Surely this is hyperbole.  Surely society hasn’t yielded to the idea that women’s mere claims are conclusive evidence and a sound basis for public policy.  Perhaps you’re uncomfortable vesting confidence in the murmurings of a Teen Vogue contributor.  Maybe you haven’t yet subscribed to the notion politics is downstream from culture.  Perhaps you want….evidence the cards are stacked against your dad, your brother, your son, you.

Have a look at the 47th President of the United States on the issue, expressly urging we abandon due process for men accused of sexual assault.  No matter he deftly swept away similar allegations against himself – here’s a public policy maker who can redirect the law with the stroke of a pen. Or, try this one on for size: “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”  No, it’s not your imagination.  Yes, this environment is our lot no matter what the scientifically collected data tells us.

Don Haslam takes seriously the threat imposed by these cultural, political and legal developments on the administration of justice for our husbands, fathers, sons and brothers and will bring every legal tool to bear to see these men get justice in the courtroom.
