let me tell you a secret
the reason that women have overwhelming custody of children
is that men overwhelmingly don’t want to raise their fucking kids
And when they do, 70% of the time they get custody. So yeah, this is literally the only reason men don’t get custody of their kids as often as women.
Just in case anyone wanted stats…
The table shows that 4,046 females gained custody (granted and granted by consent) compared to 1,805 males. However, when analysed as a proportion of total applicants for each gender, the percentage of males and females gaining custody is almost equal. The 4,046 successful females represent 69% of all female applicants. Correspondingly, the 1,805 males constitute 65% of all male applicants. This suggests that it is usually the applicant, irrespective of gender, who gains custody.

it’s just so funny how you can just click with some people but not others, like you can meet a new friend who completely gets you in like 2 weeks and yet have a parent or relative who still doesn’t know your simplest likes and dislikes after 20 years. its weird
