Florida N.O.W. The State's Most Powerful Feminist Lobby Group Lies About Shared Parenting Bill During Opposition

The Florida National Organization for Women, the most powerful feminist lobby group in the state, has been lying continuously about the stated goals and intentions of SB Bill 668 and claiming that the bill mandates shared parenting in all circumstances after a divorce.

They are assuming the public and especially their feminist supporters will not read the actual bill to see what it says and this has enabled them to get away with this lie. This is not the first time The National Organization for Women has used this tactic before in its opposition to shared parenting. They have used the same lie repeatedly in several states to deny fathers equal time with their children after divorce. Here's the organization's deceptive statement on the bill. Quote:

"Press Release from Terry Sanders, President of Florida NOW:
Alimony bill bad for Florida women... Florida National Organization for Women demands Governor Scott veto the Alimony Bill... 
Another egregious injustice in the bill is the attempt to force 50/50 timesharing on all families regardless of the circumstances.

Child custody belongs completely outside of any alimony ‘reform’ legislation. The individual needs of the family and child should be the leading consideration by judges when deciding custody, not a generic formula that puts the child’s welfare at risk."

Ok now let's look on pages 17-19 of the legislation to see what the actual bill says. Quote:

"The court shall order that the parental responsibility for a minor child be shared by both parents unless the court finds that shared parental responsibility would be detrimental to the child...
If the court determines that shared parental responsibility would be detrimental to the child, it may order sole parental responsibility...
Whether or not there is a conviction of any offense of domestic violence or child abuse or the existence of an injunction for protection against domestic violence, the court shall consider evidence of domestic violence or child abuse as evidence of detriment to the child...

The court shall order sole parental responsibility for a minor child to one parent, with or without time-sharing with the other parent if it is in the best interests of the minor child...

A determination of parental  responsibility, a parenting plan, or a time-sharing schedule may 524 not be modified without a showing of a substantial, material, and unanticipated change in circumstances and a determination that the modification is in the best interests of the child.

Determination of the best interests of the child shall be made by evaluating all of the factors affecting the welfare and interests of the particular minor child and the circumstances of that family"
Here is NOW's statement juxtaposed side by side what the bill ACTUALLY says in image form.

So notice that nowhere in the bill does it say that children MUST spend an equal amount of time with the father regardless of the best interests of the child! This is a malicious lie by The National Organization for Women!


  1. And, in other news, water is wet. Of course NOW lied about what the Bill said. By keeping the kids out of the father's hands they keep the money in mom's (child support). This allows mom to be single, employed, and a mom. She gets to have her cake and eat it too, at dad's expense ($) and at the children's expense as well. But those expenses aren't the point. The point is that it's good for mom. So, it should stay as is. Welcome to feminism.

    1. Feminists insist that prosecuting false accusers deters other victims from coming forward. Then they say false accusations never happen because so few of them are prosecuted.
      Feminist "equality" in action.

  2. Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them) – ‘J4MB’ – recommends that men don’t marry, because the institution has been highly risky for men for decades, and remains so. The state gives wives considerable power over husbands, because of their preferential treatment in divorce settlements – it’s as if they’re given loaded guns to use at any point during their marriages, however well they’re treated. This is toxic for marriage. Women institute 75% of divorce proceedings. Even if you bring most of the financial resources into your marriage, and earn much more than your wife during it, you could find your financial position devastated by divorce. When your ex-wife maliciously denies you access to your children – a grave emotional assault on your children, you, your parents, and others – you’ll face a lengthy, costly, and highly uncertain legal battle to gain reasonable access to them. Even when you’re denied that access, you’ll have to provide for the children financially. If you’d like to learn more about why you shouldn’t marry, visit the J4MB website dedicated to the matter.

  3. Not one, not a single one ever was there a report written stating that children do better with little to no access to their father but there are literally hundreds of reports to the opposite! So I ask you, what is the real problem that NOW has with equal parenting? Is it protecting the income (mommy-support) of the female post divorce? I guess it couldn't be more obvious...

  4. “Men’s rights activists must wake up and realize that the time for trying to counter the hypocrisy with rationality – with essentially male arguments, using facts and truth, in the hope that sense will prevail – is not going to make any difference to the relentless feminist long march on men” -Herbert Purdy ICMI-16
