NOW do you see our point?

It's not that you are a woman, California does this to everybody - NOW do you see our point.html

The National Organization for Women (NOW) is finally catching on in a very big way. The "out of control" California family law "money machine" has started to deny custody to women. The California NOW Family Law Taskforce has proposed a Legislative, Judicial, Executive, and Grassroots strategy to reform the Family Law Courts.

Renewing their pledge to seek equality, this crack team of humanitarians, are responding to family law injustice that seems to be targeting a few women who got pregnant in the state of California. This outrage is well justified and shared by all California family members, but NOW's angst seems to revolve around women.

The newly released "Family Court Report (FCR)" published by the California contingent of NOW would easily gain universal backing if the word "woman" was replaced with "noncustodial parent" throughout the report.

The FCR exudes the typical family law rhetoric and attempts to "drive home" these presumptions, myths, and legends with a preponderance of rhetorical sources and seems to be based on 300 examples of hearsay evidence. There are 14 million custodial parents in the United States and only 15% (2.1 million) are men. Hearsay testimony from 0.014% (300 / 2.1 million) angry noncustodial women is not enough to prove gender-bias. Of the 373 questions that were included in the extensive questionnaire, that is used as a basis for much of the gender bias conclusions in the FCR, only 4 would be sufficient to prove corruption within the California family law system.

If the 300 angry women had a comparable income as their former husband / partner, then the root of the problem would become blatantly clear. The family law system in California is only designed to guarantee a cash flow between parents, regardless of sex, race, class, culture, ethnicity, or sexual orientation?

The FCR makes many interesting claims:

The FCR should have made the following claims:
