This Sunday, September 2nd is Father’s Day in Australia, and word around the outback is that dads are prepared to receive gifts valued at less than half of the value of those bought for Mother’s Day.
While moms (or mums, as they call’em) received Mother’s Day gifts with an average value of $60, dads are expected to see gifts valued around $28, says IBISWorld.
Serge Bielanko, friend of the show, got some internet heat recently over this photo he posted back in July. It was one of many in a gallery for an article called Old Work Boots & Camouflage Cargos: How NOT To Let Your Man Fall Out Of Fashion. Not long after his article was published, the photo was featured on Babble’s Facebook page where MOMS ATTACKED.
Serge is a caring writer and loving father. The initial comments were prejudice, hateful and dug into his soul. “What the heck were these people so upset about? Did they not read my article? I’m HER DAD!”, he wrote in a followup piece. Is it fair to judge a person because of a single picture? Absolutely not. But it is a photo… on the internet.
