Taliban Movement Gains Strength

Too many men have seen the tragedy of what happens to their children once they are forcibly separated from their fathers:
- 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (Source: U.S.
D.H.H.S., Bureau of the Census)
- 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from
fatherless homes (Source: Center for Disease Control)
- 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless
homes (Source: Criminal Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26, 1978.)
- 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (Source:
National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools.)
- 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless
homes (Source: U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept 1988)
- 85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home

After economic factors are excluded, children reared in fatherless homes are more than twice as likely to become male adolescent delinquents or teen mothers, according to a University of California, Santa Barbara study. See UCSB Study of Children from Fatherless Homes on the Fathering News pages for these and other statistics.
Some radical gender-feminists have tried to explain away the failure of broken homes. These homes were failures anyway, they say, and the children would have fared no better had the family remained intact. But if intact homes were no better than broken ones, we would not have witnessed the startling rise in teenage pregnancy and violence which has accompanied the breakdown of the family.
In successful human families, a dominant male protects his progeny and guides their development. In all successful human societies, social convention dictates that the male is vitally involved in the development of his offspring. (See The Case for Father Custody, by Daniel Amneus.) All of human history has provided us with not a single exception to this rule, as Robert Scheaffer documents in Deceptions of a "Gender Equal Society."
The unprecedented rise in divorce in the United States is a direct consequence of gender warfare. Women are seen as weaklings in need of help, and today's American government is expected to help put them on an equal footing with men.
The historically recent inventions of mother custody and alimony (commonly called "child support") were originally intended to further the best interest of the child. But these inventions fail children by greatly facilitating today's rush to divorce and account for the fact that the vast majority of divorces are initiated by women.
Meanwhile, Pearle Harbour, the female author of Guerilla Divorce Warfare and Gender Bias in Our Family Court System gives an insider's exposé of the family courts in the United States. She reveals that almost any irresponsible woman in court finds the twin forces of convention and law on her side if she just behaves in the conventional manner. Her only accepted role is to whine miserably and say it is all because of something a man did. Again, the system has only one role for her; following behind, cleaning and complaining. Her man was a deadbeat, or worse. The men who get to be deadbeats are the lucky ones. Any man who doesn't play dead and just disappear without a fuss will be accused of child abuse, incest, or spousal abuse.
The traditional woman's only role is to complain about what men do. For a traditional woman the worst that can happen is if a man didn't do anything, because then she has no role at all. NOW, like our judicial system, is still living in an era that today's successful women grew out of ages ago.
Is the loony woman who kills her children or cuts her husband's penis off...
