Here’s a statement certain to send a shock-wave through the Feminist Movement: women make BAD fathers. And despite all the gains by gays in the marriage debate, Lesbians do not make good fathers either.
I’m sure there is an effort underway in the gay community to redefine “father,” as an asexual, non-gender-specific organism that can be replaced by anything, including Big Brother. The dominating Liberal culture may try to redefine marriage, but as we say in Texas,
“They can put your boots in the oven, but that don’t make ’em biscuits.”
When are we going to admit that we need dads back in their proper place in the home? Lord knows that single women have tried it on their own for some time, and they pretty much suck at playing both roles. Before you decide to protest that statement, I’m not condemning single mothers per se. There are a few of them who manage to raise good children, as people like Dr. Ben Carson are excellent representatives.
However, I doubt you will find many single mothers who haven’t wished for a good man to be a true father to their child or children. Most would gladly have accepted a good man to take on that “other” role, swapping “good cop, bad cop” from time to time.
We too easily discount how much positive influence a father has on his sons and daughters. Fathers protect, counsel, lead. Fathers teach sons how to be men, and teach daughter their worth.
“My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, “You’re tearing up the grass.” “We’re not raising grass,” my dad would reply, “we’re raising boys.” – Harmon Killebrew
How many dads really do play with their kids? My guess – most of them. Are there absent fathers and slacker dads? Sure. But that doesn’t mean ALL dads are bad dads.
We may not be able to define what a good father does or looks like because every family is different, but we can easily spot the effects of bad ones. How many people will watch a young woman go completely off the rails, roll their eyes and declare “Daddy issues”? And there are plenty of examples.
Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus, and those are girls who have made it. However there are those who haven’t.
Kevin wrote recently of a sweet young girl who shoots her first porn video and then kills herself two weeks later. Her dad is a convicted criminal, and her mother jumped from boyfriend to boyfriend. All the girl really wanted was to pay for her education, and she decided to take the Kim Kardashian-Paris Hilton method, attempting to fast-track her success through a porn video. Her suicide proves that it doesn’t always work.
Despite what the Feminist Movement has sold to young women, there is a balance to life and relationships, particularly parenting; a natural order of things. To deny this is to deny science and reality.
As a conservative woman, I ask real men to ignore the shrieks of feminists who claim you are unnecessary. We need you. Our sons and daughters need you.
“Be a dad. Don’t be “Mom’s Assistant”…. Be a man…. Fathers have skills that they never use at home. You run a landscaping business and you can’t dress and feed a four-year-old? Take it on. Spend time with your kids…. It won’t take away your manhood, it will give it to you.” ~Louis C.K.
