Protesting Fathers

I have some sympathy for the argument that current family court laws and practises are not fair to male parents. There have been some horrendous cases of fine fathers losing access to their children.

However the tactics of “men’s groups” both in NZ and overseas sadly always go a few steps too far and they marginalise themselves.

Today’s example is handing out pamphlets and using a megaphone outside the homes of some Auckland Family Court lawyers.

Not only is the protest against the wrong people (lawyers don’t make the laws) but targeting people at home comes across as nasty and intimidatory.

In the UK it got even worse with a plot to kidnap the infant son of Tony Blair!
