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. 🙄

Glad you still had some positive experiences from other male figures, pede.

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

I agree. Or the father might be a drug addict or alcoholic. Having a terrible father like that is not good for the kids, and they'll grow up having numerous problems. This is how radical feminists are created.
