Men...................Fathers....................

Are you the least bit upset at the medias attention or should I say no attention to the fact that Sarah Palin has a husband that helps rear the children.

Does so as she has to travel with her job's.

Men really need to be upset about this as allot of men are stay at home dads or Mr. moms. Or work but really have a part in the raising of their kids.

You are totally being overlooked in this attack from the left!
Men can be nurturing and loving to their children just as women are, maybe not in the exact same way but no less effective.
I really think you need to speak out with the working mothers on this.

I don't hate them, I married one. What a stupid generalization.

But to get to the question, I might hold an unpopular view, but I think moms and dads are different when it comes to raising little ones. Being in the midst of raising my brood, I can tell you that it would be very different had their dad been with them. But that's just me and my own opinion.

No one who is running has bashed her for working. It's only regular citizens who have questioned her "choice". Being VP is not your typical working mom job. Give me a break.

The role of the father in this has been overlooked.

The fact that it may be different from if the mother raised them does not mean much to me. It may be different, but does that mean he isn't capable? Isn't one mother different from the next anyway?

I get really aggravated when the talking heads on TV refer to a divorced fathers as a "Dead Beat Dad". I was a single father of four sons (one with special needs) and their mother didn't pay a dime in court ordered support. The TV people never make reference to Dead Beat Moms. Now my youngest is 28 years old and one of the boys is about to take over the family business.

How are men being attacked by the left? Everyone who has children knows that both parents working cooperatively is what it takes to raise a child. We have a large family, ages 24 to age 7. I don't need Sarah Palin to tell us how to do anything. My husband has changed just as many diapers as I have in order for both of us to get our college degrees, work, and raise our children. The only people who are paying much attention to Palin are the Christian Evangalical/conservative women who see her as some sort of Queen of Sheeba; some sort of EVERYWOMAN/EVERYMOM. If you have any gripes, this is the audience you should be talking to as they are truly making her out to be some sort of Wonder Woman. The rest of us already know that if Sarah Palin didn't have her husband's support and if he didn't help out, she couldn't have done all that she has. On the other hand, I don't think she has done such a bang-up job at this point. She's no better and maybe no worse than most parents out there. I don't see the Holy Mother status that's been bestowed upon her.

It has rung a bell for me.
In another forum it was righties who screamed against equal pay for equal work...they said women with children took more time off work so they shouldn't be hired....it was unfair to men and coworkers who had to "do their job for them"..
In another thread the righties said women should be subject to their husbands who should "wear the pants in the family".


Sure singing a different tune now!!!!!

Between the two of them they don't seem to be doing such a great job, but then I just don't think too highly of their alcoholic lifestyle and the fact that they have a pregnant teenager. Must be my elitism.
