Haredi divorcee in London didn't want his daughter attending mixed gender gym

Here's a recent case from Britain where a jerk blames his former wife's approach to parenting rather than his own community's ostracization tactics:
A haredi Orthodox Jewish man from London told a family court judge that his 9-year-old daughter was facing ostracism from their community after her mother allowed her to eat McDonald’s and go to a mixed-sex gymnastics class.

The girl’s mother had left her husband and their insular community, according to reports in the British media. A court had ruled that the girl would live with her father but spend time with her mother.

The father turned to family court to complain about what the mother allowed the daughter to do when they were together, the London-based Jewish News reported.

In addition to the non-kosher food and the gymnastics class, the father told Judge Laura Harris that his ex-wife drove with their daughter in a car on the Sabbath and “dressed inappropriately” when picking her up from haredi Orthodox Jewish day school.
I can guess: she didn't dress "modestly" and those scumbags in that Haredi community consider her a porn object? Now that is offensive. Particularly that they detest her attendance of a mixed-gender gym. It's one thing if she doesn't eat kosher food. But it's another to say she's not allowed to have relations with the opposite sex, even on a simplistic level, and their approach is particularly egregious. Fortunately:
The judge reportedly told the mother the daughter could remain in her gymnastics class and said the mother promised not to feed her non-kosher food in the future. The case reportedly came to family court after the father had his former wife followed by a private investigator.
Oh, so he basically invaded their privacy. Thank goodness the judge made a wise decision here regarding where the daughter could attend. I won't argue about the kosher food adherence per se, but I will say that his sticking with a community that has such contempt for individualism and independence is disgraceful. Seriously, I don't consider that a good father at all.
