Elizabeth May – Please Don’t Back Down
August 27, 2015 § Leave a comment
Dear Elizabeth May,
Generally I am not a Green Party supporter, though I admire what you’ve been doing in the House of Commons.
Yesterday I came across the articles I’ve linked below. I had no idea that your party plans to overhaul the Divorce Act and I applaud you for that. I saw absolutely nothing sexist or anti-feminist in the quoted section of your platform. In fact, it appeared to me that your party actually downplayed how brutal the family courts treat men, specifically, in this country.
These articles display clearly how feminists will attack in mob formation anyone who supports equality in our family courts and anything but an overtly gynocentric legal and social system. It’s time that someone prominent like yourself digs in and stands up to these people’s lunacy and mob mentality. Yes, people should have ways out of abusive relationships, but divorce is a scourge on our society and is particularly harmful to children, which are our future. The family courts only make things worse in all the ways your platform mentions and worse. Suicide rates, for example, spike among men who have gone through a divorce.
Thank you so much for reading my letter, and for your work, and please bring some sense and reality back into left wing politics — stand up to these bullies.
