Real fathers are growing extinct.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
OVERLAND PARK — “I’ll be your Father Figure. I’ve had enough of crime. I’ll be the one who loves you. ‘Til the end of time.” What’s up peeps? It’s that renowned critic Blog King here to wish our daddies a very ‘Happy Father’s Day’ which brings us to this poignant exegesis: Father’s Day pales in comparison to Mother’s Day and it’s an American ignominy to say the least. Don’t get it twisted, good mothers deserve any accolades they garner. But, as a nation, we’ve grown somewhat accustomed to showering mom with gratuitous shoutouts on television without publicly acknowledging we even have a father. Hell, one could argue the paramount rationale behind society going to hell in a handbasket is because we’ve trivialized the patriarchal significance of fatherhood.
As a corollary, too many men are pusillanimous. Too many are ineffectual crybabies. Too many are sissies.
Disciplinary TV dads in the orthodox matrix of James Evans and Ward Cleaver have been commercially extirpated.
Masculinity and all things macho are practically nonexistent. Yet, more than 60 percent of U.S. women wonder why they’re still single. So, to the handful of beer-guzzling, child-supporting dads out there who belch, scratch and fondle themselves on the couch, Blog King salutes you on your special day. Just remain cognizant of the fact you’re an 80s dinosaur in danger of 2K extinction.
Sad, but true.
