Father's Issues / I spoke with Glenn last week
« on: Jan 19, 2004, 01:03:07 PM »
Glenn contacted me last week after I CC'd him on my email to Claire's.  Because of SPARC, Glenn was made aware of the merchandise with Claire's.  Once we got the proper confirmation for him that Claire's was indeed carrying this merchandise, Glenn was able to launch his campaign on Sunday.

This will be the biggest take down of David & Golaith.  Claire's is a world wide retailer.  This is the big Kahuna folks!

Glenn couldn't have been a nicer guy.  He's sincerely invested in men's rights.  SPARC has proven their support for Glenn.

Our voice is being heard.  There is strength in numbers.  This should be reassuring to everyone who reads this email that if we continue to work collectively, WE will make a difference.  It's within our reach.....

Father's Issues / forward your story
« on: Jan 16, 2004, 11:07:48 AM »

you should forward his story to glenn@hisside.com.  He has a radio show about men's rights (or lack of them).

He's the guy who started the campaign against "boys are stupid...throw rocks at them."

his web site is http://www.hisside.com

Father's Issues / great advice

Couseling might work well for your children.  It'll help them deal with the disappointments from having too high of expectations from their father.

and why hasn't the public in Kansas heard about this travesty of justice and father's rights?

Rapists get less prison time.  Please let your coworker know that prayers are going his way.

I'm sure he's in shock, not thinking rationally and angry because once again he's been excluded from his daughter's life by the BM.

To whom it may concern,

I have been a customer of Claire's since I was in high school.  I got a 2nd ear piercing there and love your store for the novel items that you carry.  I have also turned my 6 year old stepdaughter onto your merchandise.

It's recently come to my attention that your stores are carrying the "Boys are stupid - throw rocks at them" merchandise.  With all of the violence in our schools these days, children having to go through metal detectors to keep them safe, dogs sniffing for bombs and drugs, why on earth, as a retailer to young girls, would you condone such violence?

Do you think it's OK for girls to throw rocks at boys?  Don't you think this line of merchandise encourages this violence?  I am horrified.  Would you carry merchandise that promotes neo-nazism or the Klu Klux Klan?  Not in a heartbeat.  The difference between these examples and the David & Goliath line is negligible.

As long as you continue to promote such violence, be advised that neither myself, my stepdaughter or anyone who can hear my voice will ever place foot in your stores again.

Do the right thing.  Pull the merchandise and as your penance, make your buying department contribute to an organization that works to eliminate violence against all of our children

It's the same old story I've seen many times here. I have a beautiful, 6 y.o. SD. SD lives in NY, we're in IL. We see her two weekends a month plus extended time at the holidays, she flies in.

SD is a sensitive and emotional child. She is very bonded with us. It's my belief that the child is emotionally and at times, physically abused by her mom but it's so hard to prove.

The BM is emotionally checked out on this child. The child is left in the care of maternal grandparents, who they live with. Of course, whenever we take BM to court, she's mother of the year.

The child does not want to go home at the end of visitation. She hates her school, last week she faked being sick for four days. She says she's bored and lonely at home.

To challenge custody would bankrupt us. We're in the hole every month just paying child support and property settlement from the divorce. I know challenging custody would entail psych eval's, witnesses and a long court experience. BM would fight us tooth and nail, she doesn't want to lose her commission check.

It's just devastating to listen to her and worse to have to send her back. How do you get through this? What would you do? What have some of you done?

Dear Ms. Gamber,

With all of the violence in schools these days, I am devastated and astounded by Universal Studios' support and promotion of violence against boys by the sales of your T-Shirts in your Dapy stores.
 
You can release a film produced and distributed by your company and have to put a rating on this film for violence yet you offer and promote  these T-Shirts for sale for very impressionable young girls without consideration or regard?  What kind of message do you think you're sending them?  Do you think you could produce a film with the story line of girls committing violence against boys?  Do you think that would be a box office hit?  
 
As a mother of a 2 1/2 year old boy, I am horrified.  I watch him every moment he's awake to keep him safe.  I do all that I can.  I teach him love and compassion and especially, how to treat women with respect.
 
To what end?
 
This is as serious as a heart attack.  Do the right thing.
