No longer supporting Fathers 4 Justice due to....

My DP has asked me to post here to make people aware of his opinion. He posted this on his Facebook feed and would like some civilised opinions.

Please Read:
I have long been a supporter of Father's 4 Justice because of what I have been through with regards to my ex witch and my twins.
However today I have removed my support for them due to the fact that they have now become a ridiculous media driven parody of what they once stood for. Their campaign to get Mothercare to change its name is ridiculous in the extreme, their public trolling of Mylene Class's private family business is a disgusting example of the bullying and abuse that any decent gentleman or Father would be wholly against.
Also their deletion of any comment on their feed by anyone who disagrees with what they are doing is not only extremely rude, undemocratic and biased but also borderline fraudulent in my opinion in the arena of the public opinion of the very people they perport to represent. i.e . Us Dad's!
If anyone wishes to share and post this comment or put it on the Father's 4 Justice page please do so because I have blocked them in light of the above.

No decent "gentleman or father" would have supported them in the first place.

Concur with Bertrand

They were always a bunch of top notch wankers. I don't see what's changed

Er the spiderman stunt was about 15 years ago.

Your DP's reaction seems fair to me, although I'm not a fathers 4 justice supporter anyway and haven't really heard of their shenanigans recently (I don't have experience or knowledge of the problems they aim to address, thankfully)

QuackDuckQuack Sun 27-Aug-17 13:31:33

Haven't they always be a ridiculous media derived parody?

shivermytimbers Sun 27-Aug-17 13:33:41

Also, although he may have had problems with his ex wife, I don't see the need to use such derogatory, sexist terminology about her as 'ex witch'

BorisTrumpsHair Sun 27-Aug-17 13:37:15

F4H have always been nasty hateful wankers. Nothings changed. But I'm glad your P's finally opened his eyes/mind to them. Better late than never.

BertrandRussell Sun 27-Aug-17 13:37:26

Yes, one hopes that his children don't read him referring to their mother in such a very F4J way........

DamnDeDoubtanceIsSpartacus Sun 27-Aug-17 13:41:27

They are a vile group and always have been. They exist to hate women.

Have a word with your other half, he shouldn't call his ex a witch.

BlueDecor Sun 27-Aug-17 13:47:17

That was a typo, should have said ex wife. I can't seem to edit the post though.

VimFuego101 Sun 27-Aug-17 13:48:48

Regardless of his ex wife's behaviour, that is an unacceptable name to call her, on social media or otherwise. I hope you don't have children with him otherwise you may find yourself being referred to similarly a few years down the road.

Not even going to comment on the fact he supported F4J in the first place, except to say they do a very valid cause a huge disservice.

stitchglitched Sun 27-Aug-17 13:50:22

A typo that just so happens to be an insulting word to call women, and that you accidently replicated on your other thread?

BlueDecor Sun 27-Aug-17 14:15:10

It was a F***** typo copied and pasted from his FB page. He's now deleted the post and I've asked the mods to delete the threads due to the insults we're getting just for asking an opinion. Is this how grown adults are supposed to act?

shivermytimbers Sun 27-Aug-17 14:17:59

Typo my arse grin

BoneyBackJefferson Sun 27-Aug-17 14:19:42

You ask this when you are posting for someone who supported F4J whilst he got what he needed and is now slating them because he doesn't need them anymore.

The hypocrisy is strong with this one.

BertrandRussell Sun 27-Aug-17 14:27:53

What sort of opinions were you hoping for?

stitchglitched Sun 27-Aug-17 14:32:25

You sound as flouncy as your partner tbh.

QuackDuckQuack Sun 27-Aug-17 14:37:00

Witch is not a typo for wife.

user1499786242 Sun 27-Aug-17 15:19:47

I'm actually laughing out loud at OP claiming that's a typo......

PhilTheSahd Sun 27-Aug-17 16:32:27

Eh, people in general often don't refer to their ex's or soon to be ex's in particularly nice ways, and we have absolutely no idea from this thread what the ex was like. We are on a forum that has LTB as an acronym that is common knowledge here. If it is ok to refer to unpleasant men as bastards then surely witch isn't exactly too rude here.

QuackDuckQuack Sun 27-Aug-17 16:51:02

I'm not fussed about calling her a witch. It's a but puerile, but name calling isn't unusual. But pretending it's typo is a straight lie and that doesn't paint the OP in a good light.

BertrandRussell Sun 27-Aug-17 16:57:51

"If it is ok to refer to unpleasant men as bastards then surely witch isn't exactly too rude here."

In a semi formal position statement on his fb page where anyone, including his children might read it?

BorisTrumpsHair Mon 28-Aug-17 12:28:30

I'd put money on the FB post not saying witch at all.

Also I believe it possibly was a typo - not from wife to witch though, but from bitch to witch.
