print email Source: Editorial: Operation DAD rounds up delinquent child supporters
Misandry at work

Before some of you celebrate, know that I could have been put on that list of deadbeats and because I paid my child support and I am still steaming about consistently paying my child support money even before the court ordered me to begin payments, only for me to be treated like a "deadbeat dad" who doesn't care about kids.

Do you know how this happened? Because of a glitch in the system with two different ISET numbers causing the payments to go on an ISET number that the state wasn't expecting payments on.

This was beyond my control since this happened within the computers and records of the Child Support Bureau and the clerk's office. All I could do was make my payments in cash to the clerk's office in the courthouse and yet it didn't show up in the system.

The state sends out these intimidating letters to men about how they could lose their vehicle, passport, tax refund, and other things if they don't pay child support. I got a pile of receipts from the clerk's office from paying child support reliably and yet I still got my state tax refund intercepted by the Child Support Bureau and accused of being delinquent.

I know what it's like to be the victim of prejudice now. Too many of you people get swept away in your cultural attitudes and don't consider the larger picture, you can be a guy who reliably makes child support payments and still treated as a deadbeat dad. The prosecutor's office finally cleared up the matter by performing an audit and I finally got the situation resolved.

But the Child Support Bureau's first reaction was to assume that I gate kids and didn't want to pay Child support.
