The dreadful plight of many separated fathers at Christmas
is touchingly and painfully described by one such father in this journal article which garnered nearly 200 comments and around 50,000 views.
The state maintains the brutal system which consigns such men to this fate in the first place.
Mens Voices has been highlighting this appalling issue for a long time but our description cannot do it adequate justice compared to the actual story as narrated to one of our support workers by a man who has been in this situation not for one but for three Christmases now and with little hope that the continuous ill-treatment will end anytime soon. It is all too often the plight of many men.
We continue to hear from men seeking desperately for help and advice when there are almost no agencies to provide a listening ear, support and encouragement. The state provides no such support; indeed the state maintains the brutal system which consigns such men to this fate in the first place.
