Court System too tough on Fathers
This is an article written almost a year ago

In a way, the female is pathetic. This usually comes from judges who tend to look at females as being weak, unable to support themselves, and that their husbands should still provide. Even if the wife has a full time job, no children, and got the house in the settlement.

On the other hand, the female is a victim. This is usually from judges who 'sympathize' with the wife. The husband cheated on her? Never mind that she cheated on him too, he's still a lying bastard and doesn't deserve any mercy. He doesn't have the kids? He must not have cared enough, let him rot.

Downfall of a girl living in a patriotic society. But hey, who's to say that most of those guys don't deserve it?

I have seen and heard many women in my area get pregnant or plan to get pregnant so they can get a free check from Uncle Sam, so they can get free housing, medicaid and other benefits that full time college students and disabled veterans and citizens would kill to obtain.

All they do is lay on their back get screwed pop out a baby and bam they get another check from Uncle Sam(basically from us, for those who have jobs and pay taxes. The system is being abused by some, if not many.

The article is a bit lacking in substance but anyway, free housing, Medicare, other benefits are given to full time students, disabled veterans, and citizen were I am and always have been. If the US took care of their citizen properly, like many other countries (Canada, many European countries, etc.) They wouldn't have those thoughts when deciding to have a child.

The bias you mentioned in your post is a good example of the Feminist Theory. Judges see the man as capable to pay child support for his child as he should, it's his child. The mother is contributing through physical maintenance and emotion support for the child, as well as possibly working. Both the mother and father provide for the child. The woman contribute to the raising of the child just as much or more than the man. He has a child, he should care for it. The woman has a child, she cares for it.

The child goes to whomever the court sees as most fit to care for it.

I agree with this, many people in my area find it fit to have a child just so they can get a free house.

I think it is stupid that after women fought for their rights so much, they are still graded as "incapable" in american courts. Like: you are a woman, thus you can not earn enough money: it is on guys to do it. And they must pay, even if women are guilty for adultery and men are not ("he was never at home..." ... he was working you ungrateful $@#). Is it something in american mentality that says "women are incapabale of taking care of both themselves and their children" - but why? At least in US there are plenty of successful women. + if the guy was such a bastard who really doesnt care, why force to continue the connection between them by checks etc?
I am not american, so i dont know answers to questions, but from my perspective, those rulings are not fair to both parents, coz it degrades the women and sometimes punishes innocent men.

Is the Court system too tough on Fathers? My answer is yes and no. Yes, because there are men out there who's trying but get the book thrown at them. No, because sometimes they let the bad ones get off easy. I think the men who get themselves into the "trap" still could've said no. The Court sees men as being providers that's why it's tough on fathers.

idk what if it really is a single mother who doesn't have the father, she'll be left out on the streets with a new born baby in her hands. Again this is a touchy subject and really is up for the voters to decide

Yeah, this is happening more and more. If you have a baby you get bumped up the list.

I haven't seen my father in 15 years. As soon as I was born he left, since than my mother had to struggle for most of the things I have today. Basically, if I were to ever see him again, I hope they reap him for everything he has. Anyway, this is kinda a touchy subject for me, since I know that my mother isn't any of those things and didn't just have me to get free things.

You know of course that the law differs in every state in the US. The court sees men as providers that's why it's tough for them?
And men aren't the only ones capable of providing for their children you know. I have to tell you the justice system fails more often than you think, and I'm not only talking about the justice system here in the US but worldwide.
I can tell you this because I myself have been in many other countries like Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, Spain, France and Germany. I haven't experienced it myself but I have witnessed many cases where the justice system fails to give. . . justice.
