Another Bending Counter to the Typical Gender Double Standard Arguments

Mommies simply are devoted to their children (to the point where all they need is sperm), while daddies have to be talked into giving up "freedom and masculinity" to be devoted to their children.

That kind of logic may increase web traffic and get head nods from the regulars of ├╝ber-popular mommy blogs, but it is also shot full of holes, especially for those of us daddies who have been the primary caretakers of our children.

On the one hand, Lindsay Ferrier seems to live in a far off land where fathers raising their children is alien and unnatural. On the other hand, I've been living at home for a long time.
