Feminists are not the modern Victorians.

Personally,, I have frequently compared the plight of a father to remain a father in the face of a hostile mother to that faced by the Victorian mother in the same, but opposite context, but today we have a different level of such abuse of parenthood as this article puts it: "A century ago, when paternal custody was the norm, mothers were denied custody and separated from their children. Now long forgotten, thanks to feminism and modern male chauvinism, these mothers were also released from all continuing responsibility. That was "justice" by the male sense of fairness. Now, we have established a system in which fathers are denied access and jurisdiction and yet, still held responsible. Is that "fairness" feminist style?"
