But why do men fail to organize and protest?
I have a theory on this. It's because of the way so many have been
Women have traditionally been the organizers in families. They see
the vacations, Dr. appts, home repairs, etc. are booked, the
attended, etc. Boys grow into men that have seen their mothes be
and then marry women who continue the pattern.
The best way to stop this is for parents to stop raising boys to
women and stop raising girls to accept this as their solo role as
by example and in word.
I'm doing my share.
I have some theories too, and they're very different from Mrs.
Indyguy's. I think that very few men are willing to come out and
stand up for the interests of men, in situations where those
are entirely the opposite of women -- as is the case in most
Bear in mind too that men who fight the system are subject to the very
threat of jail time as well as losing their worldly possessions just
they are standing up to the system. Women, on the other hand, at the
worst would simply be told to just "shut the f___ up". Not much to
Why do you say that? Why would they go to jail or lose their worldly
possessions because they protested against the system? Now, if their
protest was in the form of refusing to pay child support, then I can see
where that might be true. But organizing and picketing, etc--why would
merit jail time? And if women were out there picketing with them, why
you think the women would get different treatment? Do you have any

I was held in contempt of court and sanctioned for trying to stand up to
system on three occasions. One time I was in contempt for attempting the
"re-litigate" an issue. Another time I was in contempt for "dragging my
ex-spouse back into court." And finally, I was held in contempt for
"failing to inform the court my ex-spouse was having trouble transferring
asset to her name." In everyone of these examples the judge ignored her
order in the decree and held me accountable with sanctions for trying to
the decree implemented as written and signed.
Did you have to spend any time in jail time for contempt or did you just
have to pay a fine?
