NOW, Feminism, and Historical Revisionism

http://web.archive.org/web/20070708213232/http://michnow.org/jointcustody507.htm interests me because it keeps coming up in debates between feminists, who claim they want joint custody, and anti-feminists, who point out that their actions directly contradict this.

 Feminists fight AGAINST men’s rights.

Here are some examples to prove my point.

Father’s rights group want shared parenting (equal custody) to be the default if both parents want custody and neither parent is unfit. They feel that men should not be punished for being men, and that women should not be awarded custody to their kids simply for being women. Currently women are awarded primary custody almost all the time, even if the husband was the stay-at-home Dad and the woman was the breadwinner.

Feminists fought against this. You can read NOW’s own statement here. Also note their usage of anti-male lies, i.e. “fathers are abusive, don’t give them custody.” That is from 1997, but still remains valid today.
