A FATHER'S DAY LOOK AT DAD DISCRIMINATION: DON MATHIS

If a father walked down Soledad Street in San Antonio until he got to Dolorosa Street, he would find himself next to the Bexar County Courthouse. Soledad means loneliness in English. Dolorosa comes from the root word dolor, which means pain.
 And if that dad went into the courthouse for a divorce, he would likely walk out with a lot of pain and loneliness. That is because Bexar County, like most courtrooms across the nation, awards custody of children of divorce to the mother more than 80 percent of the time.
  Despite advances in gender equality for women, men typically get the short end of the stick in the shish kabob of divorce. Some fathers going through divorce settle out of court for every other weekend with their children – but they do so knowing that is likely the best they can get.   
A dad can easily spend the equivalent of a kid’s college education trying to convince a judge to order a 50/50 custody arrangement – and still not get it.  
According to a 2015 study fr…

ESTABLISHING MEN'S STUDIES DEPARTMENTS IN AMERICA'S ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS: IS IT NECESSARY?

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Women’s Movement spawned the development of Women’s Studies Programs in America’s colleges and universities. The establishment of Women’s Studies Programs in American academic institutions has helped to empower women, address their unique health issues and needs, and transform the manner in which they are perceived by society and the manner in which they perceive themselves. Nearly every college and university in the United States has a Women’s Studies Department and some form of a Women’s Studies curriculum. Women’s Studies has been cited as an agent of change for Women by Mr. Dan Pence in his essay, “A Woman’s Studies Course: Its Impact On Women’s Attitudes Toward Men And Masculinity”, published in the National Women’s Studies Association Journal (Volume 4, Autumn 1992, pp. 321-335) by The John Hopkins University Press. Pence went so far as to say that becoming an agent of change was, in fact, the goal of Women’s Studies Programs. No on…

THE REAL RAP: POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS . . . WHO DEFINES IT? PART I: MESSRS. CARL S. DANIELS AND SEAN K. DAVIS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and Harvard University estimated that about 30% of inner-city children are affected by post-traumatic stress disorder, an illness commonly associated with soldiers who have returned home from war.Seldom do we view it from genetically evolved or environmentally influenced (Nature vs. Nurture) perspectives.


In the field of psychology, these two schools of thought represent a long standing discussion and debate regarding human development.On one hand, are those who believe that human beings are fundamentally created to be the way they are by nature.On the other hand, are those who believe that our development in a specific situation or environment, especially during early childhood, is the main thing which determines the type of personality, social skills, and social problems that we will evidence throughout our lives.For most people, it would be a natural inclination to lean towards nature concerning mental health disorders. While in…
