I was surprised and amused recently to discover I am now a “Lolcow” courtesy of the online forum Kiwi Farms.

For those of you who don’t know, a “lolcow” is internet slang for people or groups whose eccentric or foolish behavior can be “milked” for amusement and laughs.

Kiwi Farms is a web forum. Its description states that it is a community dedicated to discussing eccentric people who voluntarily make fools of themselves.

Rational Wiki calls it, “an immensely creepy American stalking forum run by man-child Joshua Conner Moon out of his mom’s house.”

New York Magazine called it, “the web’s biggest Stalker community.”

I made the cut late last year as a “career cow” when one of the moderators read a previous post that his friend shared of mine which was posted LinkedIn. My article “drew him in” and he says that he was “hooked and had to find out how far this rabbit hole goes.”

The Kiwi Farms moderator goes from calling me an “exceptional woman” to calling my article “run of the mill feminist trash that Huff Post didn’t publish first.”

I admit I had to google “Hate Boner” and found this definition, courtesy of Wiktionary: “An intense and enthralling feeling of hatred for someone or something.” The Urban Dictionary defines it as a feeling that is to hatred what a boner is to sexual desire.

(Why, oh why does it always comes down to something having to do with their penis??)

I had to think about that for a minute. Over the course of my 20+ years working with child support collections I have met families that have lost their homes, who are barely surviving, who have kids that could have had great professional sports careers or at least full scholarships to a college of their choice had they been able to continue to compete and I have met a mother and daughter living in the mom’s car. I have seen heartbroken children doing without needs as well as wants.  I’ve helped single parents working two sometimes three jobs just to keep food on the table, women who do quite well financially on their own – and those who appear to be doing quite well when actually they have zero retirement funds left because they spent it all getting their children through life, and zero funds in their savings or checking accounts until the next payday.

All while the other parent of the same kids is off living footloose and fancy-free, with a nice place to live, new cars, frequent vacations, plenty of food and often a new family to replace the previous one tossed away.

Merriam Webster defines “hatred” as extreme dislike or disgust.

So yes, man-child Joshua Connor Moon has that part right – I have an “extreme dislike” of any parent who refuses to support their child. I am disgusted by such behavior and believe it should no longer be tolerated.

I am also disgusted by the arrears reported by the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement to our Congress and increasing by almost a Billion Dollars per year. The current total is over $117 Billion dollars. Very disgusting.

I am disgusted that our Congress receives this report but does nothing about it.

I am disgusted that the mainstream media is as quiet as our politicians by such an atrocity perpetrated on our children.

I hope the “Social Media Dump” the Kiwi Farms writer did on me shows them how deep this problem goes and encourages them to do something other than whine on the internet about feminism, mistreatment of deadbeat dads, and boners…of any type.

In the meantime, me and my boner of the “raging hate” type for deadbeats will continue to make this world a better place for all children.

Check out Athena. I’ve been building a tech solution for moms for the past 5 years that includes private investigations to find the non-payor, to find his income streams, deposit accounts, and assets – both real and personal, and then generates the legal documents necessary to place liens on and seize the assets that have been found.

Athena is in beta and is currently being used by moms just like me and you right now. It is free or at a reduced cost while we are working out the bugs and discovering what works and what needs to be improved before we launch to the public in a few short months.

So check out the features and benefits and put your name on the list to be notified when we launch – or apply to test us out in beta now.

If Joshua thinks that I have a Hate-Boner now, I can’t wait to read what he thinks about this.

It won’t cost you anything to have a hateboner for deadbeat dads, so join me and we can celebrate our rage together.

Cheers, Joshua!

Simone Spence is not a lawyer and she does not provide legal advice. She is a mom who figured out that she had to naviagte the child support system on her own. She did. She then began helping other moms to do the same.  This started a business where she exclusively consulted with women for over 20 years providing them with information that they can use to collect their arrears. She has helped to collect over $15,000,000 and has an 87% success rate. Simone has written three child support collection books sharing her collection knowledge. Recently she developed the child support collections platform “Athena,” scheduled to launch summer of 2019.

In general, only a licensed attorney can give legal advice, but there is a distinction between “legal advice” and “legal information.” Any non-lawyer can simply recite laws, but it is illegal for a non-lawyer or unlicensed attorney to offer legal advice.
