Beth Froehling – Co-Executive Director – Coalition Against Domestic Violence

Beth Froehling - Co-Executive DirectorNC Fathers believes that Beth Froehling (Co-Executive Director) and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence is playing gender and sexual politics with the issue of Domestic Violence rather than attempting to end all violence in NC. In this article, we are going to provide evidence supporting our statement and ask that every Man, and Women in their families, to educate themselves on this matter because it can have serious consequences in your lives. NC Fathers is an organization of NC non-custodial families who seek reform in the NC Family Courts for the presumption for equal parentage and access to their children after a divorce. We ask that you review OUR GOALS, consider joining our MAILING LIST and FACEBOOK PAGE if you identify with the information in this article and help us build a massive organization of non-custodial parents and their extended families so that we can begin the process of ending the century long systemic bias in the family courts. Furthermore, in this article we are going to point out the relationship between Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence as it relates to shared parenting in NC, or more specifically why it does not exist in our state. While this document may appear to be the ramblings of a “Men’s Rights” or “Father’s Rights” group, we want to make it painfully obvious that Women in Paternal and Men’s families get equally stung by the issues we are about to discuss. NC Fathers is going to make this article available to Co-Executive Director Beth Froehling of the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and will be happy to include any thoughts she has in this matter for our 1800 daily viewers and 4,976 (March 2013) member mailing list.

This is an important video for every Man and Woman in paternal families to watch. In this scenario, if at ANY time she would have picked up the phone and said “I’m scared”, the Father in this video would have gone to jail, lost his job, had his assets transferred to her, and stigmatized in society. Also important is the 4:35-4:52 mark in this video where she lets him know that at anytime, despite her behaviors, she can call the police and have him removed. And Domestic Violence only happens to Women Beth?

there is no excuse for domestic violence

Update 8/9/2013: We just ran across this document that we suspect the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence does not like to see in print. Of course, we suspect that their organization will just say that Men are transferring the patriarchy onto these girls which is confusing because as we know most young girls do not even have a Father in the home.

Here is some more information that the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Beth Froehling probably does not like hearing:

North Carolina

Roughly half of custodial mothers today have male children who will one day be pushed to the margins of their kids lives if they experience a divorce and have children. In their lobbying for Women and denigration of Men as the only batterers in North Carolina, NCCADV is putting every mother in the position of defending her son in future child custody proceedings. Where do you think these non-custodial grandmothers (who will also be marginalized as well) will stand then? With Equally Shared Parenting?

Domestic Violence Coalition

North Carolina Coalition To End Domestic Violence

NC Fathers statement on Domestic Violence:

sEND tHIS mESSAGE TO bETH fROEHLINGNC Domestic Violence is a serious issue facing all of humanity. Violence reduction against all humans requires a collaborative effort that is solution and evidence based; not grounded in governmental politics,  sexual politics or gender ideology. Amelioration efforts must encompass proven interventions, both in treating victims and perpetrators and in providing legal remedies that serve the purpose of amelioration.

All these strategies must produce a sustained effort with informed sensitivities to men, women, and in particular, children, instead of using misdirection and other tactics that are designed to further ideological agendas and fund organizations.

NC Fathers appreciates the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence paying attention to the issue of violence in North Carolina. However, we are disgusted that they apparently are using known radical feminist buzzwords to push a gender and sexual politics agenda aimed at stigmatizing ALL NC Men and Boys as future domestic offenders so that the “Mother take all” family courts can operate as usual. Your Sons, brothers, nephews, friends, and fathers deserve more than this. If we are going to end ALL violence in NC then we can’t just focus on Men.

NCCADV

Co-Executive Director Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Why Not End All Violence?

NC Fathers believes that our citizenry has been socialized to believe that only Men commit Domestic Violence, and there most assuredly is a sustained media collaboration along these efforts. The reality however, is that Women commit domestic violence just a few percentage points under the statistics on male perpetuated domestic violence, that Men in domestic partnerships commit domestic violence just as frequently, and Women in domestic partnerships commit domestic violence just as frequently as those in heterosexual relationships. We believe that Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence refuses to publicize these figures. One of the best examples we have of this is a screenshot directly from the NCCADV website using the word patriarchy:

patriarchy

Now lets explore the definition of the word patriarchy which is a term that radical feminist groups like to throw around in their efforts to claim that Men are responsible for everything wrong in the lives of women and the world, and yes, this includes your sons, brothers, fathers, and husbands, and friends.

Patriarchy (rule by fathers) is a social system in which the male is the primary authority figure central to social organization and the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property, and where fathers hold authority over women and children. It implies the institutions of male rule and privilege, and entails female subordination.

In fact, you will see the words oppression, gender inequality, patriarchy all over the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence website and we have to ask Beth Froehling if her organization is more concerned about “Women’s Rights” rather than ending ALL violence in North Carolina.

NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence policies

We also have to wonder, if the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and their Executive Director has these views, does this mean that a majority of male legislators in NC who are fathers are likely domestic batterers?

More concerns..

Domestic Violence in North Carolina is a very emotional hot button topic that many professional lobbyist have learned if you just use the word against someone else, it immediately gives you a lot of power. It’s like when you hear politicians use “Do it for the children” – what they are saying is “If you don’t pass my controversial legislation, I am going to paint you a child hater and abuser in the public”.

Here is an example of more politics from Executive Director Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence:

Executive Director

Most Domestic Violence? What about the other groups who experience violence? Here is a great analogy showing how dangerous it is to play politics with this issue:

If a woman walks into a daycare and harms eight children and a man walks into another daycare and hurts only three children then the woman has hurt far greater numbers of children. But if we suggested that new laws needed to be drafted to prevent women from entering daycare facilities on these grounds, then the mainstream media and women’s rights groups like the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Beth Froehling would be outraged that we are singling out the Woman only. And, they would be right in doing so. Not just because it is unfair to condemn all women based on the actions of a minority, but because the three children that were hurt also matter. It is not about who hurt more children, it is about all the children being hurt.

In virtually all social problems we face, none are as focused on gender as domestic violence. And that bias is clearly reflected within the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

However, after pointing out all this, Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence still wants to partner with women oppressing, abusing, and patriarchal Men who want to control women’s lives through collective voices and shared experiences:

monet for domestic violence

Having said this, we do agree that Men should be partnered with the NCCADV on ending Domestic Violence, but we have to wonder how Men and Women in their lives feel  about this collaboration and giving donations to an organization using radical feminist language excoriating Men?

How The NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Co-Executive Director Beth Froehling Actually Benefit From On-Going Violence

If you have lived in North Carolina and followed what goes on in Washington D.C. in the past twenty years, you know that few politicians and lobbyist actually do very little for the people they serve and seem more concerned about creating non-profits and lobby groups around ideological agendas that they either have a political or financial interest in. Unfortunately, we believe that the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, which is headed in part by Beth Froehling, is one of these groups. In fact, organizations like hers have turned Domestic Violence into an industry that now NEEDS FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TO EXIST so that employment (by women), salaries (for women), lobbying efforts (all women), political agendas (for women), programs and services (mainly by women) can continue to be funded.

In Domestic Violence lobby circles, we know that the Violence Against Women Act is the gold standard Violence reduction act that exist at the government level and secures $500 million dollars per year that is handed down to organization like the NCCADV. How are they going to keep getting this money if violence is ended and Congress starts to decrease funding? Of course we have no doubt that Beth Froehling will say that she would be glad to shut NCCADV down if violence (well male on female violence) is ended. But the fact that still remains is that there is a LOT of programs and services that still have to be funded, lots of employment, lots of research, lots of lobbying, lots of media, lots of statistics to generate that can only be accomplished via government money that relies on violence.

NC Family Court Matters Relating to NC Domestic Violence

If you are a NC Father, paternal grandmother, step-mother, aunt, or daughter of a father you know that family court is a horrible place that has treated you rather unfairly. Each day, fathers are prevented from being actual fathers and pushed to the margins of their lives as visitors and payment providers rather than equal parents with equal access. As shared parenting initiatives take shape all over the country, there are groups lining up to end this on the grounds that men and fathers are potential rapist, domestic abusers, and child molesters who have no business having equal parentage. And there is a LOT of money handed down from the government that funds this ideology, and we suspect a lot of Violence Against Women Act money is involved. This ideology is evident by the National Organization For Women’s Foundation which stated in their 2012 Family Law Newsletter:

“This Special Report of the NOW Family Law Ad Hoc Advisory Committee focuses on the destructive ability of abusive parents (usually the father) – aided by fathers’ advocacy groups or fathers’ rights groups – to deny the protective parent (usually the mother) custody of minor children. Discussed in this issue is how abusers deny custody, and the damage it causes to a half million or more children exposed to continuing physical, psychological and sexual abuse.”

And there is no doubt that the National Organization For Women and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, with Beth Froehling acting as director, are in collaboration together for this assault on your male son’s, brothers, husbands, fathers, and nephews.

There is just too much ideological rhetoric coming from the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence website showing that their interest is only about ending male on female violence rather than ending ALL violence and that is dangerous for North Carolina.

If you have an interest in this article, being a male or female, we ask that you share this article extensively on the major social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others in an effort to help end all violence in NC and send the message to Beth Froehling and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence to stop playing politics with the issue of violence and build a grassroots coalition of men and women, absent sexual and gender politics, to take money for Domestic Violence and give it to where it is vitally needed rather than non-profits trust accounts.

In the next session, we are going to update stories daily that we find where Women and Mothers are committing Domestic Violence and Murder of their children and Men in their lives.

We can start with Jodi Arias, now of course the NCCADV will say that Jodi Arias was wrongly convicted and will attempt to make apologies for her, in fact all the incidents below will have a “yea but” that implicate you, your sons and brothers, new husbands, and fathers. Male only violence may help you fund your organizations and keep your radical gender feminist friends happy, but real people are seeing this daily.

Michigan Woman hires a hitman to kill her husband. No mention of abuse in this one Beth Froehling, she just didn’t want to go through divorce. Where is the patriarchy?

Mother kills child because the child interrupted her game of Farmville.

Woman commits Domestic Violence on her husband because he didn’t vote.

Woman hits her husband with a bat, then car.

  1. I just saw this post on the mailing list and I want to thank you for writing it. There are few organizations in this state who would have the guts to get this information out because if you do then they will just say you support battered women. I will say however you missed an important part of Domestic Violence in NC that I am sure the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence won’t address and that is the number of false allegations that proceed to conviction in the State. I think a lot of WOMEN in paternal families see this daily.

  2. This article could have been written better, you left out that the definition of domestic violence in NC is so low that men go to jail for raising their voices or slamming a door. In fact, the NC Bar Association’s definition of domestic violence is “anything that makes a person FEEL like their is imminent harm or death.” Of course, the word feel is so subjective that literally anything can be considered domestic violence. I have no doubt that many of the statistics that are so inflated showing violence is really nothing more than a normal husband/wife squabble where both raised their voices, slammed doors, the police came and the default man goes to jail regardless gets reported to Congress.

    • Scott, forgive us for leaving that out, but you do have a good point. Here is what normally happens in domestic conflicts that Beth Froehling isn’t telling anyone. A man and woman get into an argument, both push buttons, both help the argument proceed, both yell and scream, she calls 911, the man is arrested on mandatory arrests, and it gets reported statistically as VIOLENCE. And Congress is too stupid to ask that questions because if they do feminist like Beth use their “you must hate women” card to make them scared to ask hard questions. In reality, violent episodes where a man just comes home and beats his wife is very low. VAWA has lowered the definition of violence so low that anyone can be prosecuted on domestic violence and the NCCADV loves it cause it generates positive statistics they use to get more money.

  3. As you guys know, I don’t always agree with everything written on this site even though I am a supporter. Also, as you know I consider myself a feminist and I have a son who I have witnessed suffering in the family courts. What caught my eye about this article and really makes me mad is that feminism has its roots in HUMAN RIGHTS and many in the movement have turned it into Women’s Rights and the demise of Men’s Rights and that just pisses me off. If Beth Froehling is a practicing feminist then I encourage her to get back to the roots of feminism and stop playing games with the movements original purpose.

I am all for advancing women as they have faced difficulty in america, but I also agree that is if there is going to be a coalition on domestic violence then it will need help from every man and woman in this state to end it and disagree with the tactics used to denigrate just men. I know a woman who was in a relationship with another woman who experienced domestic violence one night and the police were called but nobody went to jail so yea I can see where not all dv gets counted in the statistics.

  6. I like the part about custodial mothers and could never understand their efforts to push fathers out of their lives while they have male children and just ensuring that their sons get hurt in the family court process.

    I want to say this to the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence:

    But I do have a wonderful message for these mothers, a message that your feminist leaders forgot to tell you when they took your money at fundraisers or put pictures in front of your face of beaten and bloody women claiming that this would be you if the father ever got near you or your child again (likely in an effort to squeeze another dollar out of your pocket an into their non-profit trust account). My message to you is, cancel your subscriptions to the National Organization For Women’s mailing list, close your accounts on Jezebel and Feministing, and join the dark side because you will likely find that your new life as an activist and non-custodial grandmother who likely will rarely see her grandchildren is best served here. And remember all those things your feminist co-conspirators told you about your ex-husband or boyfriend, how he is a likely rapist, domestic abuser, and child molester? Yea well, you just remember that because as they took your money and time then, they have every intention to tell the custodial mother of YOUR son’s child the same thing about YOUR son.

But I can assure you if I called 911 to report the incident and made sure police heard what I saw, they would not have arrested the female and there would not be a female on male statistic generated. This is why statistics do not reflect ALL domestic violence, law enforcement has been trained to deal with men only, thus that is the only statistics coming to light. And, the NCCADV and Beth Froehling are bent on this continuing to expose patriarchy.

This is complex though because presumably now more statistics will come forth about the prevalence of domestic violence outside heterosexual male on female violence. Although, I have absolutely NO doubt that LGBT Domestic Violence statistics will likely be suppressed because it apparently does not fit in with the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Beth Froehling’s thoughts on Domestic Violence which is related to patriarchy, female oppression, and gender equality.

Male on female violence drives more funding to Beth Froehling, other forms of violence do not. This is why you see the media only showing female victims because it stirs emotion and drives funding.

    • DVA, thanks for posting on our article. We happen to agree that the narrative is focused just on Men while suppressing violence in other groups. If we are going to deal with the national problem of Intimate Partner Violence then we need to do so without gender or sexual politics involved. Our concern is that this organization and Executive Director has another agenda and they have wrapped themselves around domestic violence as an emotional outrage blanket that causes people to give and support them without thinking because people only hear the term and give them funding. If they came straight out and said your sons, your brothers, your fathers, and your nephews are all potential batterers and thus must not be around anyone much less their children then many women in paternal families would be outraged. This is why I am so shocked that they actually used the words patriarchy, female oppression, and gender inequality. More women need to realize this.

However, you see how easy it is to do, and what it brings the false accuser. Now does anyone here really think that women in custody battles would not utter this simple sentence if it meant that they would prevail especially since there are no repercussions in doing so? False allegations are the life blood of the Domestic Violence lobby. They love them! These allegations are consistently seen through to conviction which exacerbates violence statistics which the NCCADV then uses to draw in more funding and fund raising efforts.

    • Anthony, you are ABSOLUTELY correct. It is common knowledge that the best way to win a custody battle is to make a domestic violence allegation regardless of whether it is true or not because it immediately puts the father on the defensive where he has to spend money defending that and not having money to proceed with a substantial custody battle. In NC, allegations are all that is needed to win custody if you are a mother. The NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence loves this because it fits in nicely with their “patriarchy narrative” and helps inflates violence statistics so they can get greater funding for their quasi political action organization.

I thought the feminist agenda said that 1) Women do not commit Domestic Violence and are 2) Incapable of the level of violence Men are capable of. Of course, I think Beth Froehling will dig her head in the sand and stand by her tried and true fund raising efforts and say that Jodi is rare and it won’t happen again in a million years or that she was just protecting herself. Nonetheless, this agency has a good mission with bad directors pushing a bad agenda.

    JOANNA WEATHERFORD: MISSOURI WOMAN ALLEGEDLY ATTACKED EX-BOYFRIEND WITH A MEAT CLEAVER AND LEFT A TRAIL OF ‘POOP’ BEHIND, REPORT SAYS — 7/09/2013

    Authorities say Joanna Weatherford was already on probation for violating an order of protection when she reportedly attacked her ex-boyfriend who had recently gotten one against her. Weatherford, 51, was arrested and charged with second-degree domestic assault after allegedly breaking into her ex-boyfriend’s home, attacking him with a meat cleaver and leaving a trail of human waste behind.

    A responding investigator wrote in the probable cause statement, “(The victim) told me that Weatherford had defecated while attempting to enter through the window as the window sill was soiled. He said she continued to drop human waste as she walked through the living room and bedroom.” The victim said that he woke up to find Weatherford standing over him around 1 a.m. and that she picked up a cleaver-style knife from the floor near his bed and attacked him with it. The two struggled and the victim finally got the cleaver away from her and ran outside. Weatherford allegedly followed him and tried to take the knife again, so the man threw it on the roof, where police later recovered it. The neighbors called the police after hearing all the ruckus.

    Police found Weatherford in the man’s apartment when they arrived. Even though she admitted to breaking into the apartment through the window, she claimed that she was just there to get her things since the man kicked her out. Weatherford said no weapon was involved and that the man choked her, but police noted no injuries to her neck but that the man had several scratches and bruises. Weatherford was being held in Greene County Jail in lieu of $7,500 bond.
