Cox Pulls Billboard Campaign In Face of Protests!

October 14, 2004

The promo for this week’s His Side Feminist Ex-ABA Leader Slams Shared Custody, Fathers’ Movement–is below. The show will be heard on WSNR AM 620 in New York City and on WWZN AM 1510 in Boston on Sunday, October 17 at 10 PM EST and also via the web at 7 PM PST/10 PM EST here.

Also, I will be doing an open topic, live call-in show at 5 PM PST/8 PM EST this Sunday (10/17) on KTIE AM 590 in Southern California. The 5 PM PST show can also be heard via the web here. I invite you to call the show and join the discussion in progress at 1-877-590-KTIE (in California) or 1-800-439-4805 (out of state).

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has wisely decided to pull his billboard contest wherein children would draw designs critical of noncustodial fathers who have allegedly not paid child support. The battle between Cox and fatherhood advocates has garnered a lot of media attention–click here for the latest.

Cox announced in September that his contest “encourages parent involvement in discussing the issue and assisting in crafting the message and visual representation… that clearly conveys the message of encouraging the payment of child support.”

As I noted, in this campaign “custodial mothers are encouraged to coach their children to make designs critical of noncustodial parents behind on child support. And it doesn’t take much imagination to figure out which noncustodial father many mothers will be encouraging their children to denounce.”

In fact, many divorce decrees specifically instruct parents not to denigrate or badmouth the other parent in the presence of the children. It is very inappropriate for the top law enforcement official in the state of Michigan to hold a contest which encourages parents to do this, and I am glad that Mike Cox understands the problem and has responded appropriately.

Thanks to all His Side listeners who responded to our 10/3 call to action and congratulations to all those who worked to bring an end to this misguided campaign. These include: the American Coalition for Fathers and Children; Dads of Michigan; internet broadcaster Richar’ Farr of KRightsRadio.com; the Fathers Helping Fathers Network; longtime Michigan fathers’ rights activist Murray Davis; Samantha Anne and MichDads; Eric Ross of the ACFC; Dan Wilson and Michigan’s Parents For Children; Dan Diebolt and Michigan Dads; and countless others.

The archive of last Sunday’s show CBS’ ‘Suburban Madness’: It’s OK to Kill Your Husband (10/10) can be heard here.

Many fathers are very naive when they walk into family court, and the results can be disastrous. Family Law Attorney A.J. Comparetto’s Ultimate Guide to Stopping a Dirty Divorce teaches you the Dirty Divorce tricks before they are played on you. Learn how to survive a dirty divorce with your sanity, finances, and your honor intact.

Feminist Ex-ABA Leader Slams Shared Custody, Fathers’ Movement

This week in newspapers all over the country high profile family law attorney Lynne Gold-Bikin, former chair of the American Bar Association’s family law section, slammed shared custody and fathers’ activists. According to Bikin, a recent federal class action suit filed on behalf of noncustodial parents is:

“One more attempt to say that every case that goes into court should start with the assumption that it’s 50-50 time — even if they haven’t been putting in 50-50 time before that. And why do they want 50-50 custody? Some people want it because they know they can reduce the support they pay to their wives.”

Gold-Bikin drops bomb after bomb on the fatherhood movement while debating shared custody and the Massachusetts Shared Custody Ballot Question with Ned Holstein, president of Fathers and Families of Massachusetts.

To listen to the show, tune in to WSNR AM 620 in New York City and WWZN AM 1510 in Boston on Sunday at 10 PM EST or listen via the web here.
