Feminists, in your drive to remove the father from the family home, did you stop to consider?
the law of unintended consequences? 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (Source: U.S. D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census) 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes (Source: Center for Disease Control) 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes (Source: Criminal Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26, 1978.) 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (Source: National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools.) 75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes (Source: Rainbows for all Gods Children.) 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes (Source: U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept 1988) 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home (Source: Fulton Co. Georgia jail populations, Texas Dept. of Corrections 1992) (Because only a portion of each age group grew up in a fatherless home,) these statistics translate to mean that children from fatherless homes are: 5 times more likely to commit suicide 32 times more likely to run away 20 times more likely to have behavioral disorders 14 times more likely to commit r**e 9 times more likely to drop out of high school 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances 9 times more likely to end up in a state-operated institution 20 times more likely to end up in prison. Iggy said: "You really shouldn't have posted this question because basically what you are saying is that all these kids are killing themselves because their father left. Therefore he damaged the family unit and their upbringing. " My response: Why do you assume it is men's fault that they are being separated from their children? 70% of no fault divorces are filed by women, not men. Women get custody most of the time in our sexist family courts 75% of divorced men say their ex-wives interfered with visitation with their kids And "40% of custodial mothers admitted to interfering with visitation to punish fathers, according to a recent study by American Journal of Orthopsychiatry." http://www.fathermag.com/902/feminism/ Kelly said: "I'm not a feminist, but it strikes me as silly to assert that having no father is the cause of such things. I'd be rather inclined to say that having no GOOD father figure is what plays a greater role in such things." My response: Why are these statistics "silly" again? Because you don't like them I assume?

Your question is ignorant. You're assuming all feminists think that the father should be removed from the home. This is only the extremist part of the group. Most moderate feminists just want equal rights and opportunities as men. Yes, some are all man-hatey but this is generally a small group... More

You make it sound as if divorce is an easy decision. It's not for most people. I'm not a feminist, but I did file for my divorce. I did it considering what it would be like for our kids to grow up in an abusive, dysfunctional household. One of them was already showing signs of anger issues and another, anxiety. I... More

You really shouldn't have posted this question because basically what you are saying is that all these kids are killing themselves because their father left. Therefore he damaged the family unit and their upbringing. Do you have any statistics on the amount of single fathers raising kids??? Anyone ?

I didn't "drive" him from the home, because of some movement. Here's the catcher, though... He's still very much involved in their lives. THAT'S the part that sometimes hard to do. You can't MAKE a man be a father, just as you can't MAKE a woman be a mother... Any woman can be an incubator, just as any man could... More

All fathers are saints right? What are the stats of kids that live with piece of crap fathers? @L...ignorance is bliss. There are many good fathers denied time with their children either by the mother, the courts or both.
Answered By: The Lorax - 8/13/2010
I am sure they didn't think of that... feminist do not care about their kids as much as they care about besting men in something that means nothing compared to raising kids who do not go crazy and start raping and killing women who remind them of their mothers.

Of course they didn't consider any of these things. Have you ever heard of a feminist considering ANYTHING other than their own retarded "logic" and ideology?
Answered By: Du'Kai Dubai - 8/13/2010
I'm not a Feminist but at the same time though where does personal responsibility come into this? Men have a little thing called free will that they have exercised to leave that family home you might expediently forget.
Answered By: Sunshine - 8/13/2010
A lack of stable parental figures is definitely a source of dysfunction. Feminists might note that some fathers initiate divorces and that many women who file for divorce are not feminists. But the fact remains that the culture of weak marital bonds was initiated by feminists... More

i don't think that many of the rank and file feminists know about that agenda.

Men's rights groups use flawed methodology to make false claims about the impact of fatherlessness.

This question presumes that feminists even care about the well-being of society. They don't. If crime rates go up because of weak family structures that just reinforces their anti-male, anti-family narrative -- so why should they care? Any facts that contradict their agenda simply do not exist.
Answered By: Tothepoint - 8/13/2010
Personally, having grown up in a violent anti-feminist home, I just want other kids to be able to grow up in a non-violent home. I don't care if there are one or two parents, or whether both or one was male or female. I don't really care who is in a home, as long as the kids are safe, cared for, and loved. Somehow... More
