Over at his blog, Wayne writes,
A while back, between 2008 to 2012, my ex-wife had a nasty habit of trying to get me fired from any job I had. She succeeded in doing this at least three times, maybe four. For the first two jobs, she did this by spreading false rumors among my coworkers, making me out to be a grossly immoral character. (Hey, I’m just a divorced Manosphere blogger!) But with the second job, I had a very wise and insightful employer who figured out what was going on, and they let me in on what she was saying to people. So after that, I preemptively warned people that I had an ex who liked to stir up drama, and that if she ever came around, then they should just ignore her. Few people took her seriously after that. [Divorced men should take the hint to tell people.]
Then after she got turned away at the door a few times, she upped the ante by filing cases against me on trumped up criminal charges. Because of this, the police came to the school at least twice (that I knew of), and once, they even pulled me out of a classroom full of students in order to interrogate me. (Those were extremely embarrassing experiences.)
This school could handle gossip and rumors, but having the police coming around was just too much for them. So they had to let me go in the end.
After that, I took another job in another city, and I thought she would leave me alone because of the distance between us. But her strategy of calling the police turned out to be more convenient for her than instilling rumors, because she didn’t have to take the effort to befriend my coworkers, and she could still sabotage my career, even though I had moved to another city. Also, a lawsuit hit me harder than mere rumors did. Not only did the police intervention instigate damaging rumors which affected my career, but I also had to waste big bucks on a lawyer.
So because she destroyed my reputation again at that school, I lost a third job.
Why do women do such a thing? Perhaps it might be understandable if the ex-husband abused her, though it would still be wrong. In the above case, there is no plausible excuse.
Then again, it maybe depends on what one considers to be plausible. Perhaps in her mind, she feels that she deserved more, and he did not deliver. This might make her seem incredibly entitled, but that would be better than letting in the alternative; the real reason that she acts as she does: she needs to justify her own heinous actions by demonizing the fella. Of course, nobody would accept this as a legitimate reason, so it must never be allowed to considered. One way to repress it is to keep the heat on, to continually look for ways to up the ante.

My ex engaged in such behavior some. Fortunately, after we separated it faded away. It would seem that looking at my face and how it reminded her of how I did not deliver all that she expected triggered her. It was very disheartening at the time, as I did not really understand the dynamic. Let me state that it is so much better when you have an understanding of what it happening to you. Being immersed in craziness without comprehending is a terrible feeling.
Could a man get away with these types of shenanigans? Not at all. But women can. The law doesn’t really help much here; it rather hinders. In the olden days, there were men (fathers, brothers) who would tell such a women to cease and desist. But these days, men who might do such a thing could face her wrath with the full force of the law behind it.
So here we have another mental issue with respect to women that messes them up, their ex up and once again the children up.
