Quoting Back to Noob Status:" I also hate it when society demonizes a single mother by calling her a "slut" and "irresponsible", but ... [snip!] ... has such a lower standard of fathers. On the flip side, notice how Mother's Day is far more advertised than Father's Day."
BD got smurfing praised to Smurf for finishing college (while not seeing his daughter for the 2 years after she was born which was supposed to be only 1 year).
I got shoulder shrugs when I finished college while taking care of LO. That's my JOB.
But him? His job was to be in school. Vurry important.
And NOW he's praised to smurf because he sees his daughter every other weekend, and pawns her off on Grandma. He's such a good father! He sees her every other weekend! Omigah! (But lets not mention that he doesn't have a job, doesn't pay for the roof over his or his daughter's head, doesn't help with preschool costs, food costs, zero. Still must be praised to bits because he is "involved")
