    If you bang this drum “I realize there are all kinds of places in our society where discrimination and objectification of women is alive and well.” How are we going to arrive at a situation where women don’t routinely promote hate speech and misandry? And the hatred of fathers, is being broadcast from so many angles in the culture, its pretty difficult to stop it.

    Anyway, thanks for speaking up Tom.

    Interesting article, yes i too need to see precisely what sahm and sahd are selfreporting before i could draw any conclusions.

    Anyway, the stigma concerning a man being a sahd has only reduced slightly. Het women should work on being more accepting. Unlike with sahm’s there seems to be little demand for male partners who want to be sahd’s

  3. I’ve got to admit it. I’d be depressed out of my mind if I tried this, especially with kids. I loved helping raise my daughter. But I’m really not interested in the domestic side of things all that much.
