Court System Not Protecting Men – UN Convention On Rights Of Child White Paper

There is a concern by advocates of the rights of men that our legislators are not doing enough. The  130 page White Paper on the Child Protection and the Maintenance Act is an opportunity to defend the rights of men as it relates to Parental Alienation Syndrome. It is accepted that decisions handed down by Barbados Courts are are in the majority pro-woman. The ignorance and insensitivity of judicial officers presiding over family matters in the local court system has reached

To quote a male advocate,

…the white paper is revolutionary in its 130 page recommendations for it speaks to a minimum of 50% shared parenting for every parent once child in not in any danger. No longer will claimants go straight to court-  mediation and counselling will be required in all maintenance as well as access issues for the court is unnecessary clogged with these emotional issues…the Amendments in the white paper now speak to in kind maintenance as the extended family can help…Courts in Barbados perpetuate the notion that men are just a source of finance…

  • Family Court as an adversarial system is just wrong and is a circus of madness

    all the fighting damages the children’s development most

    So much can be accomplished if you and Marsha were to join hands to deliver a message. This battle between the sexes debate only makes it more contentious and fractious. We need to act intelligently if we hope to be agents for change.

    Get over the wishful think nuh David…?
    NOTHING will be accomplished if Kammie and Marsha join hands to deliver any message.
    Our problems are much more deep rooted than the symptoms that we continue to focus on…

    Imagine that we have a problem where our petrol tank is leaking gasoline…but it will require much inconvenience and costs to replace or repair the tank… so instead, we complain about the high cost of gas that we have to buy; about the constant smell of gas fumes, about the stains wherever we park …and about the near misses we have had with fires.

    How does it help to encourage Kammie and Marsha to ‘get together and lobby for reduced gas prices’?
    How is it sensible to spend money buying large fire extinguishers to combat the potential for fire?
    …or air freshenors to combat the smell of gas fumes?

    We GOTTA bite the bullet and change the shiite tank.

    Our leaking tank is called the LEGAL PROFESSION.
    EVERYTHING points to this fact.
    A bunch of warped demons whose very genesis seems to be one of selfishness and greed.

    YET we INSIST on keeping them in the damn car.
    WE are happy to pay more and more taxes to cover the leaks…
    We are resigned to them BORROWING more and more on OUR account…
    WE accept THEIR word that we can do no better….

    We GOTTA be brass bowls David… It is clear…

    Up to Bushie, than tank would be pulled out and dumped post haste..

    You analogy maybe extreme. So much can be accomplished if we work together, showing leadership; empathy to list just one example. Change must begin with the man and woman in the mirror.

    When the strongest argument that a union can use… is that when things get tight, the last hired should be the first fired,

    If you employed four people, and the business was LOSING money, would you not ACTIVELY seek to keep the most PRODUCTIVE people on board… and try to return to profitability…?
    You think Bushie would care if a fella was hired last week ..or last CENTURY?

    Unscriptural…?
    You clown..!!
    MUST you always make an ass of your scholarly self…?
    It is a simple statement that even Lexicon can interpret….

    Lets put it another way…
    Give you a job in a perfectly good offshore medical school …
    …and in short order it will be in a mess… and forced to rid itself of your miserable oafish personality…
    …as we have seen time and again.

    Put Stinkliar in charge of the Barbados economy
    …and in no time we are broke; have the third largest debt ratio on earth; downgraded 20 times … and shit flowing down mainstreet….

    Now….
    Conversely, if you were to put Bushie in charge of ANY shiite …
    Then milk and honey will be flowing in a few months time….

    It is not medicine (cause those who understand it well – PRACTICE, …those who don’t – teach)
    It is not common decency – you admire Trump, the pu$$y-grabbing, pathological liar..
