Elam is crowing about a non-existent ‘victory’ over NOW New York. He thinks NOW removed their stance on shared parenting. NOW’s stance is to oppose shared parenting. Now this doesn’t mean NOW doesn’t support joint custody. Shared parenting is the assumption that there’s no abuse in a marriage or to the children where both parents get immediate joint custody.
Father’s rights groups are pushing for this because well, they’re abusers, and want their kids immediately given to them even if they’re beating their wives and/or their kids.
Elam is claiming that NOW NY removed their pages on the site opposing shared parenting but come to find out the ENTIRE site is down. *as of publishing on Sunday at 10pm PDT the site is down* Elam is crowing about nothing. It could be that NOW is revising the entire site but of course Elam rants that he’s actually doing something and ‘scaring’ feminists. In his rant he talks about bashing in the heads of feminism, which is just Elam’s fantasy about beating women.
‘NOW knows they have abandoned whatever their movement ever stood for in favor of collecting bucks from a bunch of entitlement whores who want to have their cake and eat it too.’ ~Elam
That’s rich coming from a drug addled deadbeat dad who collects thousands of dollars for writing angry screeds that turn out to be untrue with just one simple check.
I’ve emailed the national NOW to ask about their stance on shared parenting. If I get an answer I’ll publish it. The New York chapter opposes it, as do most sensible people. Shared parenting is just another con game of male abusers who think they’re entitled to joint custody even if they beat their families.
UPDATE: The NY NOW site is up again and Elam is wrong and taking credit for something that 1) Had nothing to do with AVFM and 2) the site was simply down and the pages Elam thought they took down are there. NOW’s stance on forced shared parenting is there for all to see.
