For Dina Mackney, Her Husband’s Suicide is Not Enough

Editor’s Note: The following article was originally written and posted at A Voice for Men by that site’s founder and publisher, Paul Elam. Because the co-founders of Community Organized Compassion and Kindness agree so strongly with Mr Elam in this matter, his excellent article is re-published here, on our request, and with Mr Elam’s complete agreement and consent.

Does a wife who may have driven a husband to suicide with the assistance of our corrupt family court system, then have a legal right to claim copyright — of his suicide note?

According to attorney Rachelle E. Hill, of Bean, Kinney and Korman, and a judge, that is precisely the claim. Their lawyer has written the offices of A Voice for Men to demand that we remove a post from the forums containing the note.

It is not going to happen.

The First Rule of LEAF is Don’t Talk About LEAF

The second rule of LEAF (Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund) is that you don’t write about, or talk about LEAF.

At least, not without their permission.

That’s what they told me in a phone call after I explained I was writing an article about equality, as defined by feminism.

I had called to ask the definition of a phrase used by the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund on their website: Substantive equality. How does the addition of the word “substantive” affect the definition of the word equality, to which it is attached?

Marriage is so Gay

There is no such thing as gay marriage. Of course most people understand that the phrase simply means legal marriage as hypothetically practiced by a couple who are gay, or, who incidentally share the same type of sexual organs.

The prospect of two same sexed individuals marrying each other is terrifying to some, mostly religious people because, reasons. What? It will lead to global warming? It will drive fuel prices up? Ruin the property value in your neighbourhood? Perhaps a newly discovered species of pine beetle will go extinct.

Ignoring the abuse of fathers.

I’ve heard the stories, heard the screams. I’ve gazed upon the cradled babies in the nursery ward. Giving birth is an amazing feat of zero skill, and it still amazes me. It amazes me that this is the epitome, the pinnacle, the female trump card to all male accomplishments. A man lands on the moon with analogue technology and proves Galileo’s theory of air resistance, but never mind that, another women gave birth, just as well as any other female animal on the planet. A man creates life in a petri-dish, but never mind that, some broad stole his sperm and created life herself. Anyway, I’m not knocking the dangers of labor, men know all about the dangers of labor; there really ought to be a better word for giving birth.

Feminism v. Equality

Feminists often use the word “equality” in a puzzling manner which reverses the original meaning. To feminists, and social justice warriors, “real” equality requires biasing society to advantage some people over others based on their gender, race, or other claimed oppression group. This idea that equality can only be achieved by treating people unequally reaches a level of stupidity that only feminism can attain.

“Substantive equality,” like most feminist terms, can be quite confusing for those who don’t defer to debauched dictionaries or champion corrupted concepts.

While free societies count on justice being blind, feminists were unhappy with the results of impartiality in the courts – namely, women were being convicted of more crimes. Under the guise of promoting equality, radical feminism has succeeded in bringing bias back into the legal system by arguing that women are, in fact, not equal to men and should not be treated as such under the law.
