(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Feminism -- Toulouse against masculinist manipulations (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 11 Nov 2013 14:38:47 +0200

Since February 2013, some men regularly take the height to denounce so-called parental injustice that seeks to exclude the fathers of their children during divorce proceedings. Latest ones, Julien Servelles Stephane Iltis, Rodolphe, invested the roof of the Capitol, in the city center of Toulouse, on October 2. The prefecture rather reactive when it comes to evict families and squats, has not responded! ---- Justice is, after the cranes, the privileged field of action of masculinist trying to pass laws in their favor. Latest, an amendment to the law on gender equality, the Senate voted, which aims to impose alternating residence default during the divorce proceedings, in case of conflict between the parents on childcare. --- The courts do not always making a clear distinction between conflict and domestic violence, a direct result of this amendment, if approved by the National Assembly, will require women to remain in regular contact with their ex-offender and restricting their geographic mobility and the possibility for them to rebuild after such violence.

Will it really a parental injustice, as proclaim these "fallen" fathers? Masculinist state that 80% of fathers are excluded from the education of their children, as can be read on the website of the association please grandpa. If in 80% of cases, the principal residence of the child is secured in the mother, it is because in the majority of cases, the parents agree on the way home.

The study records of family judges show that only 2% of divorces are in dispute for custody of the child. And in case of dispute, the court usually grants the residence to the father (between 17% and 26% of procedures) that when there agreement between parents (7-8%), and opted for alternating residence in about 10% of cases [ 1 ]

This is far the two million children deprived of their father highlight advocacy groups for fathers. Need I remind you that there is already a law (March 4, 2002) which establishes joint custody as the best solution in case of divorce?

Who is behind the movement of fathers?
Fathers claiming parental equality are a boon to the development of a masculinist movement, advance hidden behind these "friendly" dads. Playing on the rope of emotion, they put forward evidence fathers cheated by the justice, deprived of contact with their children.

But one need only scratch a little to see that the majority of fathers climbers are also accused of domestic violence and / or child abduction, in the image of Nicolas Moreno and Serge Charnay, the two initiators of the movement to the left assault of a crane in Nantes in February 2013.

Parental equality they claim is quite different from that advocated by the feminist movements: it is not for the masculinist, share equitably parental work, before and after the divorce, but to control on their former partners, using their children.

The links between these groups of divorced fathers and more masculinist assumed are quite clear: on the site of collective yellow crane (platform of demands and paternal associations), there is a link to the website of the Group of Studies on sexism, which presents itself as a group fight against sexism and actually leads a battle for, among other things, "désexuation" domestic violence, laws are discriminatory in their men.

When the dominant defend their privileges
It will be understood, masculinism is no way for the logic of feminism, it is a reactionary movement against-which opposes the social advances made possible by feminist struggles.

Poorly organized in France, masculinist and anti-feminist movements found in the so-called mobilization "demo for" fertile ground to develop their offensive ideas. This homophobic movement has spawned many splinter groups still active such as (among others) Hommens the Antigones or Observatory gender theory, created by UNI, which is the workhorse of education equality between boys and girls in schools.

These three groups have close ties with right-wing, Catholic fundamentalists as the Jerome Lejeune Foundation movement, claiming "gender complementarity" militate against free abortion and of course against the rights of LGBT people.

A more highbrow version of masculinism is to be found in the recent manifesto bastards 343: white men, rich, heterosexual and cultivated incorporating a reference feminism to defend the right for men to resort to prostitution.

Faced with these anti-feminist attacks, it is necessary to join forces and remember that patriarchy still kills every day. Libertarian Alternative reaffirms that feminist struggles are more relevant than ever, and will continue to advocate equality for everyone throughout the company.
