The last statement in my original post was that of deep sarcasm. It reflects how society sees the worth of children and fathers though. A point about voices being heard by their votes, you must realize the position that most men hold in voting rights, once they are considered felonious for not paying their illegal back door alimony, they lose their right to vote. This has been happening for the past decade.
In addition, 20 million (plus) Disenfranchised Fathers would have quite a bit of voice in a government if that government allowed to hear their voice.
A point about D-DAY, if each one of those men had their children held before them as the tool to keep them from fighting, then there would have been no battle. A man is willing to die for his country but a man who’s child is held hostage will will die before he will fight.
