FALSE. Fathers who ask for sole custody are far more likely to get it. It’s just that they don’t ask, mostly women do. Men win custody over women even if they are ostensibly unfit. More and more, judges and parents rule in favor of 50/50 custody. In fact, in the past ten years, the men’s rights movement has been devastating to women seeking custody in court and women are awarded sole custody about half as many times as men.
So find a new fucking myth.

"Christy Mack shouldn’t have fooled with a MMA fighter named ‘War Machine’—what did she expect to happen?"
On one side, we’re told—fear men that fit certain stereotypes, and if you don’t fear them, any damage you incur is your fault.
On the other side, when a woman *does* take this fear to heart, she is greeted with “Not All Men” and labeled an angry, man-hating bitch.
So which is it? Trust the man, and get flamed for stupidity, or fear the man, and get blamed for bigotry?
Cultural narratives of gender weave a labyrinthine minefield of confusion that none of us traverse without harm.
