Dalrock has all the statistics, but mom gets custody unless she is an absolute trainwreck or does not want the kids (Wendy Davis, also a trainwreck). This plays into the progressive victimization pyramid as gay trumps straight woman. The article is delicious to read as a woman complains about a selfish man just up and leaving for his new identity. Hey, it's a no fault world. Here is the interesting reveal of how horrible family court is, and how good a special victim badge is to have.
Try as I might to save our marriage, there was no stopping my husband. Our divorce was not settled in mediation or with lawyers. No, it went all the way to trial. My husband wanted primary custody of our children. His entire case can be summed up in one sentence: “I am gay, and I deserve my rights.” It worked: the judge gave him practically everything he wanted. At one point, he even told my husband, “If you had asked for more, I would have given it to you.”
I truly believe that judge was legislating from the bench, disregarding the facts of our particular case and simply using us—using our children— to help influence future cases. In our society, LGBT citizens are seen as marginalized victims who must be protected at all costs, even if it means stripping rights from others. By ignoring the injustice committed against me and my children, the judge seemed to think that he was correcting a larger injustice.
This is horrible from a standpoint of fairness, which men would argue is against them in 99% of custody hearings. Family courts: the raw front line of political alliance spoils sorting. This man and his enablers in the courts and media made him a prime example of progress. The USA Today had a photographer at his gay wedding. Of course, the seals in the public eat it up, clap their hands and encourage this. What a wonderful occasion! How beautiful! Progress!
The part though that is sic is later on, as she describes her new husband's lifestyle and the environment her kids are in today since he has primary custody. Let us go to her biased, but it is not slander or else someone would have sued, paragraphed.
Their father moved into his new partner’s condo, which is in a complex inhabited by sixteen gay men. One of the men has a 19-year-old male prostitute who comes to service him. Another man, who functions as the father figure of this community, is in his late sixties and has a boyfriend in his twenties. My children are brought to gay parties where they are the only children and where only alcoholic beverages are served. They are taken to transgender baseball games, gay rights fundraisers, and LGBT film festivals.
Everyone has a buddy who did not get custody and mommy ends up acting a whore or puts the kids in horrible situations after the divorce. While my heart goes out to this woman, as her children are exposed to the reality of the gay lifestyle and not "Glee!", this is just a little different from the stories my divorced friends have told me about a night where they know Skanky McSkankerson was skanking it up with skanks at a skank-rager as their kids were with a sitter and he could not see them per the court arrangement. It is a sick game.
Her kids are now a trophy. Not much different from the "I won" triumphalism of some straight divorcees. Many adults revert back to childish games when divorce hits. Gays, with the narcissism rampant in their community, would be a bit worse. Straight guys, if divorce becomes an issue, think about it for the courts. If we can game college essays to get into Harvard "How I Came Out To My Rural Town", then we can game family courts, "Look, I am gay, I have rights". Sad thing is this is not about what is best for the child, as it is rarely the case. It is a transfer from the progressive enemy to the progressive ally. For this mom, she lost the rock-paper-scissors. Heteroprivilege, right? These kids are a trophy of gay daddy's divorce win. They are also a trophy of the triumph of the gay cause. Today is World AIDS Day. As we note this trophy custody win and beautiful gay marriage reported in one of the most widely read newspapers in America, let us also remember the innocent hemophiliacs and blood transfusion AIDS victims of gay promiscuity. That does not make the national papers. Some of us will remember, gay men, so enjoy the day in the sun while it lasts.
