A progressive morality


This week I listened to a tail of woe about a friend – marital problems, potential separation – being told by a lawyer that the law would probably award custody of the children to the partner and mandate that my friend endure a hefty financial burden, in order to support the partner and children – probably with restricted custody.

What is progressive about this is my friend is a woman.

While discussing with friends, I was impolite enough to point out: This is common. Many male friends of mine endure this and no woman really cares. In this case, the women were indignant.

Worse yet, I feared that this was an instance of the strong being punished by the courts. The reason my friend would endure this outcome was because she has a better education and better earning capacity, and has elected to be the breadwinner in her family.

Let’s all spare a thought for anyone who finds themselves in this position, and hope that the family courts can find a better outcome in challenging circumstances.

    It is always sad when children are the collateral damage in a relationship on the rocks.
    It is rather telling that the women you mentioned this to were indignant that the man in the relationship was not victimised and “made to pay”.
    Typical hypocrisy from our morally twisted, privileged females.

    Glad to say I am a full member of MGTOW.

    Good luck to your friend.
