Dr. Helen

I just saw that Fox and Friends had a discussion of my book on this morning. They don’t get it and Tucker Carlson could not have read my book and said those things, (or maybe he did and is just clueless) but it was nice to see they were at least raising the issues and helping the book to sell!

As a mostly stay at home dad whose children of 6 and 8 were happy, healthy, and well adjusted I had to spend $120,000 to be able to be with my kids again. Accused of everything under the sun but fortunate to have had substantial evidence come my way by virtue of my former wife's psychologist's notes and many other such documents I was able to put together what my lawyer called the most evidence she had ever accumulated against an opposing client. However, I was not able to borrow any more money to bring it to bear in court. I had to settle and now pay child support of $900 a month. I will die in debt no matter how long I live. I cannot tell you how much my kids suffered and feared and still do. I am not a monster but a king. I do not have a throne made of gold or a vast army. I do not have subjects who serve my beckon call. I do not have an endless treasury. But I am a king. My heart is my throne and upon my throne sit my son and my daughter where they are held and cherished. What was done to me was ultimately done to my children. It is a man's calling to never give up on his children or to ever stop loving and finding honorable ways to bring his presence into their lives. Dr. Smith gets this just like my children do. I would like to know how I could find a way to contact Dr. Helen Smith and share my story with her?

Are you a Rhett Butler or an Ashley Wilkes?

As my newly registered user name will suggest, I, absolutely consider myself to be of the Rhett variety. However, this was not always the case.

Raised to be a good Southern gentleman, it took a fast trip to family court to realize that I was not prepared for things to come in the (new) real world. Oh, there were signs along the way. But when you're taught a basic set of core values, which suggest (you) are the stronger sex and (you) are on this earth to protect, provide and serve the weaker, it becomes a challenge to remove, that, which has been ingrained. As a young man, Honor, integrity, Chivalry, were all stones that laid before me as I walked a path, which I believed to be the correct one.

Today, family courts operate with a mindset that infuses outdated ideas from the past. There was a time when Dads were the sole bread winners and Moms stayed at home, cared for the home, and nurtured the children.

Dr. Helen has certainly touch an explosive issue as many Dads (non-custodial parent), or fed up. The women in this country have played house long enough. I, for one, have had enough and I am happy to report I am the domiciliary parent of my two boys.

In Louisiana courts, there are 12 points/guidelines that place weight on a judges decision regarding custody. In my case, I was awarded 11 and tied on 1--that being, mutual love for the children.

Why do I consider myself a Rhett? Because I wouldn't allow a hearing officer to impose her belief system on my life. I became my own lawyer and took charge of my situation. I saw "the system" for what it was. That being, Parenting coordinators, Evaluators, Mediators, and lawyers alike, all feeding from the same troff.

Lets face it, it's just not profitable to represent the Father. Lawyers who are without moral conscience know that the playbook dictates that you sell the ongoing perception of the hot tempered male who screams at the TV, yells at the kids and beats the wife. Thus, counsel petitions the courts to protect the poor battered woman and limit the testosterone crazed man to supervised visits with a healthy dose of child support, alimony, private school tuition, health club expense, monthly smartphone bills, nail & tanning appointments and lets not forget the legal fees. Lawyers know that Judges still believe that it is the Man who makes all the money and holds all the cards. This, of course, is not representative of today's work place.

To say that Men are incapable of raising their children, changing diapers, adding Mylicon drops to their bottles, applying the Boudreaux's Butt paste in liberal amounts, and keeping their little love tanks full is still lost in an episode of Everybody hates Raymond.

Why invite the Government in your life with marriage? It's bad enough that a man loses a portion of his constitutional rights when he father's a child, but to add marriage only ups the anti for the courts.

Men on strike appears to be a much needed and timely assessment of a nation gone a awry. Perhaps today's women would prefer the homosexual as opposed to the heterosexual -- this way they can finally communicate, share fashion ideas, and when they are ready to have children, make a trip to the nearest in vitro fertilization mill.

Message to the male audience: Are you a Rhett Butler or a mousy Ashley Wilkes who hasn't the backbone to stand up to the spirit of feminism (aka special privileges for women)? If you wish to be identified with the Rhett persuasion, then remind yourself that no lock will ever keep you out of the bedroom, kitchen, living room, board room or court room -- It's time to kick the door in!

Fight for your children -- shared custody is what's best for children. They deserve to have access to both parents without being put in the middle. As men, we have the ability to be non-emotional and get along. We are the ones who are capable of fostering the relationship between mother and child. We do it because we know who we are -- we are MEN!

I look forward to reading this book --

Typical Conservatives. Both parties' primary mission is the care, comfort, and coddling of women. Democrat Manginas and Republican White Knights are the same. Slaves to women's whims and desires. When ordered to jump, they ask how high on the way up.

Yes boys... Man Up! There's women whose needs are unfulfilled. This can't be allowed to happen. Real men do whatever it takes to make women happy.

I don't know which is which (whichi is Carlson), but both of the idiot men are focusing on what the woman wants. They even kind of nervously ask her for confirmation at the end. The guy on the left says that men should be getting up in the morning and working to support everyone - but apparently because that's what women want.

I'm happy for the men's movement because at least certain segments within it call for viewing men on their own terms, not just in their usefulness to women. These clueless idiots on the show will never grasp that. They just nervously want to know from the woman what actions they should take to please her.

The segment redounds in ignorance, and not simply ignorance of the subject (the book) at hand. I'm going to focus on Carlson, as he is the most (given his purported 'manliness' and 'conservative' self-descriptions).

First, as you noted, the book describes objective socio-legal conditions that have changed male behavior. The segment ignores the relationship of socio-legal conditions and behavior. So Carlson is saying that markets are not efficient, and humans do not react to objective conditions.

Second, as an executive and resident of DC, it's important to note that these shows are of highest importance to the friends of the participants. None of these people care what a divorced mother or father in Topeka thinks of their segments. Their careers, their social lives, and probably their love lives depend on being palatable to their friends at the Chevy Chase Club or Congressional. Carlson does his neo-liberal (David Brooks knock-off) bit here, and tells men to Man UP!!! He doesn't understand that he's a prop to the bimbo in the middle who appears not to have read a book since she was in middle school.

Third, the segment closes with a remarkable confirmation of what all manosphere bloggers note: that women say one thing but privately desire another. They want the the beta or delta (with a paycheck) carrying the flowered diaper bag, but they want the alpha killer deer hunter who slams a buck in the bed of his truck and butchers it in the driveway, back home. Gee, I wonder which of those men they would prefer to sleep with? It's laughably consistent with anything heartiste or Vox or any of the rest of them would say.

In general, Carlson just reveals himself as someone who did not prepare for this segment, is intent on being the fem-lib-statist token 'conservative', and whose boys go to St. Albans or Sidwell -- if he has boys. They're not going to public school, and he is one hypergamous divorce away from being just another mugged neo-liberal. If Carlson is our model of manhood because -- oh wow -- he puts pictures of women in swim suits up on his web site -- then I need an extra aux tank in my getaway truck.

Helen, I admire your reticence in regard to such exercises. The discussion on this episode had nothing to do with the book, and the commentators simply demonstrated their conformity with and support for the destruction of families and men that their statist friends are effecting.

As always, I'm sure there are typos, above, but I can't do anything about them -- so forgive and drive on, please.

I agree that Carlson can't have read the book. I would like to know what percentage of their typical audience is female and how those women would react if the book was explained faithfully. Journalists are paid to make their readers/viewers think they are being informed not in actually informing them. Readers/viewers are journalists' product, not their customers.

Look up "Gell-Mann Amnesia" some time.

Once again demonstrating that Fox News isn't nearly as conservative or "fair and balanced" as they (and others) claim it is.
