June 30, 2009
By

In the process of advocating men’s issues, it becomes inevitable that I will wind up in a debate with those who feel advocating for men’s causes is a waste of time and resources because men are living in a state of blissful privilege. Instead, these people feel that valuable time and resources would be...

More dads working long hours, study confirms

June 29, 2009
By

I have always argued, as well as many other men and father advocates, that the inequality in household chores is directly related to the amount of hours worked by each parent. But every piece of research confirming this fact is drowned out by women, and those that support women’s issues, who advocate erroneously and prejudicedly that it...

Paid parental leave doesn’t add up for dads

June 29, 2009
By

The  father paradox once again – in Australia: A newborn reaches up from her crib, wrapping her tiny fingers around a comforting bigger hand. The baby laughs when a toy is waved in her face and then starts dancing to the nursery rhyme it plays. At lunch time she cheerfully feasts on mushy apples...

Fathers Absent In Childrens Books

June 23, 2009
By

This is another example of the “fatherhood paradox”, in which we tell fathers how important they are, but yet if one looks closely, one can see the devaluing of fathers and fatherhood is rampant in society. On the positive side, this article offers the names and summaries of books that do take fatherhood seriously....

A Father’s Day Note to the President: Mind Your Own Business

June 22, 2009
By

Michael Wilson, the writer/producer/director of the 2004 documentary “Michael Moore Hates America” wrote this excellent article about President Obama’s arrogance towards fathers and fatherhood every Father’s Day. President Obama’s righteousness about fatherhood comes from the recognition that his own dad was, indeed, a douchebag. He knocked up Obama’s mom and quickly fled the country, only...

Some Good Things Happened Since I've Been Gone

I took sort of a mini sabbatical from my blog. However, it should not be assumed that I wasn’t busy advocating for a greater male voice in gender politics. One of the things I’ve been working on – for quite some time now – along with another masculinity writer, Tim Goldich, has been the...

April Is Autism Awareness Month, And Sexism Creeps In

     You may have noticed a recent surge in stories about autism. That’s because April is dedicated as Autism Awareness Month. As a writer of men’s issues, the progress concerning the understanding and minimizing of autism would naturally be of concern to me considering that this disorder affects more males than females. But I also...

Steve Harvey's Book Just Doesn't Add Up

I recently ran across an article posted within CNN’s website that originally appeared at Oprah.com. It seems multi-media entertainer Steve Harvey has written a book about relationships, but more importantly, a book that “empowers women” in relationships. And Oprah, who exclaims “she loves everything it has to say!” was eager to have Harvey on...
