Jan Moir: ‘Being vile to Winslet won’t help fathers in despair’

Our thanks to D for pointing us to an interesting article in yesterday’s Daily Mail:


Jan Moir writes:

It must be awful to feel that you are not  getting due access to your child. And truthfully, I have a great deal of  sympathy for dads who have been elbowed out of family life after the breakdown  of a marriage; left out on the cold doorstep like an empty milk bottle or a sack of rubbish.

Sometimes it is their fault, sometimes it is  the mother’s fault, sometimes the break-up of a relationship is nobody’s fault.  Some sensible couples manage to steer a happy path through the swamp of  separation,  others just cannot reach those equable heights.

Yet the indisputable truth is that fathers  are written out of family life far too easily, dismissed as irrelevant when  their parental influence and input is sorely needed.

Yet more often than not, Fathers4Justice does  its cause no favours. In its assorted campaigns and protests, it almost always  hits the wrong note.

This onslaught against Kate Winslet is  typical of its characteristically bullying tactics, not to mention the  intimidation, the egotistical and silly stunts, and the endless  hectoring.

Time and again F4J have pointed out that the only time they get mainstream media exposure is through adopting the tactics they do. Jan Moir makes not one suggestion on what F4J might do instead, whilst claiming to have ‘a great deal of sympathy’ with fathers who don’t have reasonable access to their children. Incredible.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    “Yet the indisputable truth is that fathers are written out of family life far too easily, dismissed as irrelevant when their parental influence and input is sorely needed.”

    As long as women can use state power to extract resources from fathers and men without reciprocation, they will always be undervalued.

    Criticism of F4J from the MSM is pure projection; where the victims of a degenerate system are subtly blamed for their own oppression…
