Family Court Bias Myth

There are some things that are not myths. Like the gender pay gap! But here is one thing that is not thought of as a myth that actually is, and I want everyone to know about it.

You know how everyone assume that women have an unfair advantage in child custody battles? It's not true! Yes, women do get custody more often, but that's only because most of the time, the issue is settled outside of court. Men don't get custody because they don't want it. When they do fight for it, they get custody more often then women. So actually, there is a bias in family courts, but it favors men, not women.


Just Shut Up

Here's the Tumblr post with all the sources you need.

That's really surprising to me actually! I'd heard that certain states favor certain verdicts, like allowing a criminal father to have visitation rights even when contested, but it sure seems like mostly women. But things are not always what they seem, and that makes sense.
