An Exercise in Absolute Futility: Chapter Seven

This is a clearly analysed exposition of the what I have come to understand about the sector that I work in. This, more than anything is why the UK suffers fatherlessness on the most appalling scale. Working as I do with generational family separation, I know that unless we begin to dismantle this, we will never begin to restore the relationships between children and their fathers which have been discarded in the name of feminism. Thank you Ex Injuria for your careful and diligent work, only by writing our own narratives and providing our own analyses will we change the future for our children.
