Sasha Brown-Worsham: Dad Insisting on Paternity Test Is Not a Bad Husband

By  •  News

A link that got lost in the storm lately was one from The Stir by Sasha Brown-Worsham about fathers insisting on paternity tests. While most people snub their nose up at the idea, Brown-Worsham raises some good points, like ta hear’em? Hereya go.

First off, the irrefutable evidence: when a child is born, everyone knows which vagina he or she just destroyed like Godzilla emerging through a Tokyo skyline. Obviously, the chick on the table with the squinty look on her face and the trail of blood out of her is the mother…

PTA Dads: You Can’t Win (In the Media)

By  •  News

PTA dads, you can, however, win just by helping schools. I won’t try to pass some contrived line like “in the end, it’s the children that are important,” because – no kidding. But I’m having a hard time running scenarios where PTA dads get to look like normal, involved parents using their talents or training for the good of a school.

I read the piece, and of course, wanted to cry foul on grounds of the author, Doug Barry’s obvious man-hating.
