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

relations matters.

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

of this happening?

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?
