Man must pay support though twins not his
Every now and then those who are sympathetic to men’s issue need to pause and take stock of just how egregious the instances of anti-male courts can be. In this piece from the Toronto Star entitled “Man must pay support though twins not his”.
An Ontario Superior Court judge has ordered a Toronto man to continue paying child support even though a DNA test shows he is not the biological father of his ex-wife’s twins.
In her ruling, Madam Justice Katherine van Rensburg decided that even though Pasqualino Cornelio did not father twins – now 16 – with Anciolina Cornelio, he must continue to pay child support because “he was the only father the twins knew during the course of the marriage.
At the end of the article it states:
The judge concluded that the children should not suffer because of the parents’ wrongdoings.
The parent’s wrong doings?! I see only one part has committed any wrong here, and it is the mother. Naturally this is all for the children. Apparently you can sell men down any river if the shibboleth of “it’s for the children” is there to allow one to do so.
Situations like this are a dime a dozen, and it’s a downright shame. It must be the only instance where the defrauded must, by court order, pay the person who defrauded him. And before you say the money goes to the children, I must point out to you the factual inaccuracy of that statement. The money goes to the mother who has no accountability over how she spends it, and can take the father to court to demand more money apparently.
Sorry, but the “it’s for the children” line does not allow you to completely stamp on and abuse another human being. Even if that human being is one of those inferior males.
Anyone looking at what the feminists have been up to these last years will notice a certain trend, the expansion of terms and labels to include more and more men under their cover. It happens with the expansion of the term rape and here, with the expansion of the term father.
To all the young men who might be listening to this, if you were thinking of helping out a friend of yours with kids by letting them stay around for a couple of months. Well now it’s time to think twice, because you might end up being the only father figure they’ve known and thus.. daddy.
Only in situations like this do people seem to get all dewy eyed over the important need of fathers… As a wallet.

On Jan. 1, Massachusetts adopted new child-support guidelines that will likely raise the amount paid by non-custodial parents, usually fathers.
Dennis Prager Responds
As a follow-up, last week, I mentioned the reaction to a column written by Dennis Prager entitled “when a woman isn’t in the mood”. In short, Dennis suggests that women who do not feel in the mood to have sex with theirs should reconsider if they actually do so to help their marriages. In a large part, the feminist reaction on the blogosphere was to call Mr. Prager a rape advocate. Since then, Prager invited two of the columnists Jeff Fecke and Megan Carpentier onto his show. This is part of what he had to say (watch clip).
Bravo Mr. Prager.
In related new, this story from the Toronto sun entitled “Hey ladies, just do it”.
For her husband Brad’s 40th birthday, she gave him the gift of sex — for an entire year.
It took energy, tenaciousness and focus, but the couple stuck with the experiment, even when they were exhausted, not in the mood, and overloaded with to-do list items.
“One day, the light bulb went on,” says Charla, who chronicled their story in a book entitled, 365 Nights.
Now happy with a regular sex life, the Mullers have held onto one long-lasting lesson: The importance of maintaining intimacy.
“It was, without a doubt, the most transforming year of our marriage,” she says.
For a woman who was raped for 365 days in a row, Charla sure does seem upbeat.
Women and children first on the Hudson crash
After reading and hearing far too much credulous talk in the news about God and miracles in relation to the crash of flight 1549 into the Hudson River. I encountered a news story that I had not heard anywhere else, which seemed to me to be far more important. The BBC and Associated Press report that women and children were the first onto the life rafts after the plane crash landed, then people who had fallen into the river and been plucked out.
I think that chivalry has a place in a world less hostile to men. But in 2009 with the equality of outcome of feminism prevalent in society I think men damage themselves by capitulating to chivalrous attitudes. Chivalry is the main reason male judges oppress fathers and pass anti-male laws. Throw chivalry into that icy water where it belongs.
NOW President says “Obama cabinet level picks so far under represent women”
As if we need more proof that to modern radical feminism, equality of outcome has become the goal as opposed to equality of opportunity. From fox news comes an interview with Kim Gandy, the president of the National Organisation for Women.
Synopsis: The President of the National Organization For Women complains that while divers racially, the Obama cabinet-level picks so far under-represent women. She calls it ‘disappointing’ and says “twenty-five percent seems a little low.” She says there is still time to improve that record by appointing a woman to the now open Commerce seat and creating a cabinet level office of Women’s Affairs.
Greta Van Susteren
Hopefully the president will not capitulate to supremacist groups such as the National Organisation for Women who would promote that you assign a woman to a post purely because she was a woman. When it comes to the people who will be running the country, I would want the best person possible irregardless of if they were male, female, black, white, Asian, Christian or Muslim.
Grandmother Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on Behalf of Shared Parenting
Not all news is bad news though, this is a heart-warming report from the American coalition for fathers and children.
Charlotte, NC – 70 year old grandmother, Sheila Peltzer, will climb Africa’s tallest peak, 19,200′ Mount Kilimanjaro raising awareness for Shared Parenting and Familial Dysautonomia. Peltzer, departing January 21, 2009, will make the ten day trek up the western route where sub zero summit temperatures are expected.
Peltzer’s coach for this grueling climb is former 3-time Super Bowl Champion and motivational speaker, Tim McKyer.
Many people ask me how a former professional football player and a retired school teacher became involved in this effort,” Peltzer said. “It’s simple. The family courts in this country are broken. Children are being denied an equal relationship with both parents. I’m unable to be a part of my grandchildren’s lives because the courts denied their father enough time for shared parenting. Two of my grandchildren have FD (Familial Dysautonomia), a rare and fatal genetic disease, resulting in recurring intensive care hospitalizations. Because my son has limited access to his own children they are being denied the love of their grandparents, as well as their dad.
That about sums it up. I wish that the “it’s for the children” crowd, like the judge from my first story, will stop and consider the destructive effects that their “beating up on fathers” antics will actually have on children. Doing it for the children mean more than wringing every last penny out of a dad.
