I hated Fathers Day growing up. My dad was a POS growing up and left when I was an infant. Seeing all the cards and presents always made me feel abnormal.

But, I never advocated for ending the holiday. And I found other men in my life to be grateful for. In kindergarten, for example, I made a Fathers Day portrait of my grandpa who was basically like a dad to me growing up.

Feminists claim that it’s “traumatic” for kids in non traditional households. Yeah, it kinda sucks being the odd person out, but these things also teach you to be grateful for other men in your lives.

But god forbid we celebrate men. 🙄

Thank you, fren. Women raised without fathers don’t get much attention round these parts, but I think a major component as to why our society’s women are completely unhinged could also go back to fatherlessness

This is a great point... fathers protect their children, but they protect their daughters differently than they protect their sons. My son (younger than my daughter, but much stronger physically) is instructed to turn it up to 11 if he ever sees his mother or sister being harmed in any way. Protect our women/daughters at all costs... physically and mentally

Absolutely! My father and older brother were my protectors and I loved them for it, both are gone now. We must protect our loved ones. I am who I am today because of my dad, the best man I ever met. Love you, daddy!

One of THE most important parts of being a father to a daughter is to demonstrate her value to her by the way you treat her mother. Then she’ll be less likely to end up with the aspiring street pharmacist with a face tattoo. It’s all interconnected.

I wish more people understood this. I spent a long time bouncing from guy to guy, all of whom treated me like shit, because I had never seen a healthy relationship. My father is a POS who's awful to everyone, but especially to my mother.

7thGenTexan 1 point ago +1 / -0

So you answered my question, you don’t have kids. And teaching a daughter to learn to be respected doesn’t make her a narcissist any more than teaching a son to treat women well makes him a simp. You are a flaming piece of shit and you never need to have children. You, son, are the problem.

Dunkin4COVAIDS 20 points ago +20 / -0

This is a great post, but I am having difficulty understanding the statement "Feminists claim that it’s “traumatic” for kids in non traditional households".

A traditional household in my opinion is one with a mother, father and child where the mother cares for the child and the father works to provide for his family. Feminists have gone out of their way to destroy the traditional household, to convince women they don't need men in their lives, that they're "strong and independent", etc., etc. Feminism is directly responsible for increased divorce rates, single family homes, and so on.

6
learntocode 6 points ago +6 / -0

A traditional household, for me, is a big network of relatives - cousins, elders, uncles, aunts, adopted people from the neighborhood who come over for dinner all the damn time, or who we work with every damn day and see aat church on Sunday too. One mom and dad all alone with kids is a tough one for most of us to manage. Of course, life in the middle of a crazy bunch of relatives and neighbors can be just as hard also.

TrumpAndGodWin 6 points ago +6 / -0

Crazy relatives etc teach them what not to be, and toughen them up through exposure, like the immune system.

FireannDireach 4 points ago +4 / -0

Nothing socializes kids better than being dumped into the middle of a crazy bunch of relatives.

My dad's side of the family had huge family gatherings every summer. There were a LOT of us. I showed a picture one to a friend in high school of all of my cousins on that side of the family, and he said "I don't even know that many people!"

Big families - good for kids.

Daddy_Knows_Best 2 points ago +2 / -0

yes this is a 'traditional' family system. it's very sad that not everyone know that anymore. the 'traditional' family is based off the biblical way God created earth & humanity and how it was to govern itself under Him. No family is perfect but i can tell you the people i know who grew up in traditional families are waaaaaay more stable than those who did not. there are always exceptions to that- but i'm talking about overall. we should strive, at all costs, to keep our families intact and avoid divorce. this is the best thing we can honestly do for our children and our country. especially when many people divorce these days for the absolute dumbest stuff.

Fatherlessness is the only reason why the black community stays down.

RedditIs4Retards 5 points ago +5 / -0

Actually a big reason for it is because of the democrats welfare state. In the early 60s, 75% of black families stayed together and were financially comparable to the average white family. Things were great, crime much lower, but the democrats couldn't have that so they created the welfare state by financially incentivising black mothers to stay single and pushing them to get abortions as well (Margaret Sanger wanted to get rid of the black population).

Daddy_Knows_Best 3 points ago +3 / -0

ok so i worked in the inner city & my bro works for the dept of children & fams (welfare), here are some FACTS:

  1. govt housing is free
  2. if you get a housing unit with AC the govt PAYS YOU TO LIVE THERE. it's not alot, but it's something
  3. food stamps for the average family of 4 in FL is around $800/ month or so
  4. cash assistance is provided to single parents (really just moms) for EACH child under a certain age to the tune of $400 a kid or somewhere in that neighborhood. Most moms in the ghetto had 6-7 kids. You can add that up.

now how you do it is you don't buy a car or any other asset- you lease everything. huge tvs, rims on your car, a lexus...sound systems...the list goes on. but you NEVER own it. if you own it you may not qualify for assistance.

so it's a well played game and many ppl in ghetto make more than you or i. that's not counting money they get under the table for prostitution and/or drugs.

there's your lesson on American welfare for the day fren

2
RedditIs4Retards 2 points ago +2 / -0

From your first 4 points alone, that's already 3700+ AC income a month (I'm putting housing at $500 and $400/kid for 6 kids... housing is likely a lot more than $500).

That's nuts.

orange_dit 2 points ago +2 / -0

You think welfare and the war on drugs didn't have a negative effect on black communities? And of course their choice are a part of it, but that doesn't explain why they make those choices and why things have changed.

5
dumpsterfire 5 points ago +5 / -0

This is the premise of a famous study called “the marshmallow test,” conducted by Stanford University professor Walter Mischel in 1972. The experiment measured how well children could delay immediate gratification to receive greater rewards in the future—an ability that predicts success later in life

Ahhh. Rings a bell now.

Yeah, I can imagine different demographics performing differently there, based on my observations in this life.

2
ViagraFalls 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's something like this. You leave a kid in a room with a marshmallow on a plate. You tell the kid that if it's still there when you get back, you'll give him another one. It could be a piece of candy or other things like that. Black kids eat the marshmallow way more often than white kids. I think succeeding at the marshmallow test was also correlated with more success in life in a long-term study.

i think this has alot to do with the values certain cultures teach their children. some cultures teach their children to care for themselves- others teach to allow the govt to care for you. i'm not even joking about that. i worked in an inner city for some time trying to raise those kids out of poverty and instill a dream into them. many of them actually strived to get the housing unit in the same area as the one they grew up in bc all their friends were there. jobs were not on the list. just a great govt funded housing unit and lots of babies to fund it. it crossed my mind to poke fun but in the end it's actually really really sad. really sad.

Funny how you did not quote the paragraph right below

"Although IQ differences between individuals have been shown to have a large hereditary component, it does not follow that mean group-level disparities (between-group differences) in IQ have a genetic basis. The scientific consensus is that there is no evidence for a genetic component behind IQ differences between racial groups"

Dunkin4COVAIDS 7 points ago +8 / -1

Black kids perform worse than white kids in every socio economic category, given all the same opportunities and privilege. That is why the narrative now has turned to blaming "white colonial academics" as the culprit, because they have failed to prove that opportunity and circumstances would change the outcome. The only way black students, for instance, will perform as well as white students is to manipulate the testing to be dumbed down for black kids and accelerated for white kids in order to create their "equity of outcome". That doesn't mean all black students are stupid, or that all white kids are intelligent, it simply means on average, they do not under any circumstances have the same average academic performance across their segmented populations.

8
Frog_Anne 8 points ago +8 / -0

I would argue that the main reason those schools are failing is because they have terrible students, which is turn is caused by terrible parents (mainly unwed mothers). They don't raise the kids to be respectful, they don't expect them to behave and learn in school, so school is a zoo. The few kids that do have decent parents can't learn either when there's fights, gangsters, drugs, whatever all day. The Dems, of course, keep insisting that throwing more taxpayer money would solve it, but it isn't going to change those kid's attitudes. They'll just destroy the expensive new equipment, beat up the kids who try to learn, and keep failing.

-4
Ponzo -4 points ago +5 / -9

Schools are failing all over america, i dont know what kind of equipment you are talking about, when i was in school we just had shit to write with and books to study from. We also had plenty of disrespectful kids, they were put in place by the teachers. Nothing cures being a dick better than having to sit in detention after school and having to write the school rules 100 times. Problem is that many teachers are quitting because of lack of funding, funding that should go to teachers and students but instead gets misspent and laundred everywhere except where its needed.

Funding is through the roof, it's just getting eaten up by admin, dumb purchases, and useless, trendy programs, as you said. You can give a kid a great education over 18 years with $1000 and an attentive parent. You can't just throw money at a problem, it requires parents actually educating their children, not sending them away for babysitting

Most money given to schools goes to fund pensions. Like every other industry these days. The district siphons off a lot for the salaries of their over-paid executives, and platinum health care, and platinum retirement packages.

That's why so many schools in wealthy districts have teachers paying for supplies out of their own pockets, while the administrators are driving around in BMWs and Mercedes.

I have lots of teachers in my extended family. You have no idea how bad it is, if you think "dumb purchases" is even a thing. There's little money for purchases once the pigs have fed at that trough.

Frog_Anne 2 points ago +2 / -0

Equipment as in computers, laptops, tablets, etc. They can - and should - learn with books and something to write with, but the admins are convinced that if they just had the latest technology for every student, like rich kids supposedly do, they would suddenly start learning. The kids are behind because their parents don't ever read to them, and don't bother making them learn and pay attention in school.

Teachers aren't always allowed to put a student in place, if they punish too many students of color, it becomes racist. I don't think they were even doing "write school rules 100 times" when I was in school, and that was a while ago. And many teachers are quite well paid, plus they get most of the summer off, and have very good health and retirement plans. I think nearly every teacher I know has been able to take a European vacation at least once, unlike most of the rest of us middle class schlubs. Money is certainly being wasted though, especially on administrators that do nothing of value except eat money.

2
Ponzo 2 points ago +3 / -1

Getting the latest equipment is nice way to launder money. You write down 100 ordered laptops in the books but only 80 actually make it to the kids, leaves you with the money for 20 laptops to launder to wherever.

We did have computer class in school but that class was twice a week and we had only access to the computer room during that time.

Funding does not matter if said funding does not reach the kids and teachers. Baltimore schools are over-funded and teachers are quitting because of a lack of funds. Misspending money and laundering money are real issues in public schools.

I used to despise father's day because my biological father abused me and my mother when I was younger. Seeing all the other kids with their loving dads made me feel jealous. Then, my father was found out and arrested, and my mother met my stepfather, who is more of a dad to me then anyone else

Horkers4Trump 5 points ago +5 / -0

As a stepfather to a wonderful daughter whose biological father is a piece of shit (currently in prison for assaulting his own father), this insistence that the biological father be present in the child's life really rubs me the wrong way.

Children need a good father. The blood connection is irrelevant.

A friend of mine worked a few days in a pediatric ER. They averaged a little more than two teen suicide attempts a night. In each case: all the teens were supposedly LGBT*. But the more telling fact? In each case the father was a deadbeat POS who hadn’t been heard from in years and the mother was a male hating leasbian psychopath. Every. Single. Time.

*Could tell easily that the male to female trans kids were that way because of the constant barrage of “men suck!” at home. Also, one of the “lesbian” teens broke down in front of the doctor and nurses: she liked a boy and couldn’t face telling her mom.

Check the context. The stats seem to be mostly from here:

I didn't check the source of each one. Check 'em.

I don't believe that shit. People forget how many kids grew up without fathers after WW1 and WW2 and we don't call them failures.

They generally had intact extended families that could provide good male role models.

Plus there is a bit of difference between not having a father around because he died serving the country vs not having a dad around because he’s a louse.

Frog_Anne 12 points ago +12 / -0

There is indeed a huge difference. They have actually done studies where they studied the differences between kids with married living parents, divorced, widowed mother, and unwed mothers. The children of widowed mothers had nearly the same outcomes as those with married living parents - the effect of parents who married, even though the father died, had a huge impact on the children. Those with divorced parents didn't do as well, and the ones from unwed mothers had the worst outcomes. That's the source of the majority of the fatherless statistics. Nobody likes to point that out, because it makes women mad, so they've created the "single mother" category to include divorced and widowed mothers as well as unwed so they can hide the problem.

It's easy to explain: think of the kind of woman who becomes an unwed single mother. They're not likely to be mother of the year.

Also, those dads who died in the war probably picked higher quality women as their mates, so when they died there generally weren't bad moms around left to pick up the pieces.

Talking out of my ass here but maybe there's a psychological difference from an absent father vs a deceased father. Especially when you know he died fighting for your country. Again nothing to back it up just spit balling.

I posted how I lost my dad when I was a baby last night. I didn’t add that I lost him to a heart attack due to a cocaine addiction.

I am so anti-drug and anti-alcohol that Nancy Reagan would’ve told me to lighten up because of this. But the irony is that I’ve been a pharmacy tech for over 10 years now haha

Bluestorm83 15 points ago +15 / -0

There's a huge difference between constantly thinking about how your dad's not there because he's a hero and a role model and the absolute best of humanity and an example to us all... and constantly thinking about how your dad's not there because he's stoned or in jail or with some whore he left your mom for or some other reason he's a piece of shit. The psychology of the child is influenced not by physical proximity, chode, but by the PSYCHOLOGY that is induced by the absence AND the thoughts surrounding it.

Of course the actual reality is that the mother decided her "happiness" was more important than her children having a father so she filed for no fault divorce to get back onto the cock carousel at the urging of her shitty friends.

lmao yea there's no way in hell this info is accurate. i went down the rabbit hole a bit, it's mostly sites just copying info from other sites -- but i found an ACTUAL source for one saying that children with fathers are 70% less likely to drop out of school.

that does NOT mean that 70% of high school dropouts are fatherless. being able to make a graphic doesn't mean you understand basic math.

JSullz59 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm not saying the post is credible but I do believe there is a difference when a kid grows up knowing their parent loved them and was taken away instead of a parent who just ran away because they didn't want to deal with the kid.

Are you really saying fathers don't matter here? If so, you're establishing a basis for your own kids that you don't matter and your involvement in their lives is inconsequential. That is the conclusion you're arriving at. Seem like a good one? The only reason it's a good conclusion is if you're a father that's not raising their kids and you need an excuse.

At the end of the day, kids can't choose if they grow up without a father or not. Even people who might not have a father might have a grandfather who can be a father figure.

It’s abundantly clear that there are benefits to the stable nuclear family. However, you see leftists trying to destroy the nuclear family because not everyone is lucky enough to grow up in one. Moreover, some of the problems affecting the nuclear family are problems the government cannot hope to solve.

The rate of fatherless in the Asian community is lower than all others. Also the rates of crime are lowest. Next is the white community, next Hispanic and then black. When it becomes clear that crime is not based on race but on upbringing, then the real work at combatting crime by ending fatherless families can begin.

This saddens me! My cousins hubby died 2010 after a short battle w flesh eating bacteria. His bodies immune system was weakened by a year of harassment by the Obama weaponized IRS! They audited him for a $30,000 deduction that his accountant said he could take for mileage to work! (He worked for Bronx public defender n traveled to his own firm in suburbs of NY) He paid fines interest n penalties in full and then died a month later! The stress of the harrassment and worry about jail time weakened his immune system! My little cousins are now 16 and 13 w no father! I hope they beat these statistics! 😢

Being raised by a widowed mother is very different than an unwed mother. They've studied the different groups, and found that children of widowed mothers have nearly the same outcomes as those with living married parents. Children of divorced parents don't do quite as well, and those of unwed mothers have the worst outcomes. This is statistically speaking, so of course children of divorced or unwed mothers aren't doomed, but married parents are best. If one parent unfortunately dies, being married in the first place and not willingly leaving still has a positive effect on the children.

I checked all those boxes except the "rapist" category with 2 alcoholic/addict parents. Grew up, did the opposite of my parents, and have 2 successful graduate children living independent stable lives. Family MATTERS. Just being there doesn't make a parent a parent....parenting is an art form I learned inversely through childhood experience in a 27k lakeside concession stand that was turned into a house by adding a 3 br addition....white privilege. My kids refuse to go to that house on holidays even to greet them. My parents come here along with the rest of the family.. I do need to stop there today to drop Dad a card with a $100 bill. He still put a roof over my head and instilled traditional values in me..as hypocritical as it seemed to me then, I understand it now. We got by with the basics, he stayed, he worked, the bills were always paid and I never went hungry. They just weren't cut out to be parents and they did it anyways.... Happy Father's Day Dad...I nights been an alchy/Addict if I picked a junky dolt to have kids with too..THANKS for the real life lessons, you taught me more than you'll ever realize!!

A dads job sucks. Kids don't need a dad who's a friend when growing up. These betas today dont get the belt is there for a reason. Disrespect momma and dad fixes it. If you dad is alive spend time with them today. You may not get another with him.

I live in a place where a neighbor recently got divorced. Her son, a boy about 8 or 9 years old, freaking LOVES to come say hello and play in the street with me - a burned out middle aged neighbor. This past year has been brutal for kids, and one lonely boy in my neighborhood wanting to kick a soccer ball or throw a football is making me feel like crying right now. I had to cobble a father together from random men in my church, sports, school, etc. and i had to give myself passage to manhood - late, and with many lost years searching for my internal self understanding of my place in the world. We are raising armies of lost boys and that spells mountains of trouble.

We have to do better for these little guys.

A lot of CRT enthusiasts on "our side" like to talk about black people being bad and shit but FATHERLESS HOMES are a far stronger correlation for someone being shitty in life.

When a friend got pregnant while she was engaged to her fiancé, she applied for benefits to help with the medical costs. The social worker pushed her to not get married, because she would get a lot more money from the government. Luckily, she didn't listen and is now happily married.

But if she was like so many other women, her children would have grown up without a father and likely ended up as a another statistic.
