In case you didn’t realise, today is apparently Father’s Day.
Isn’t that sexist?
Even worse, it’s non-inclusive?
What about all those men with a low sperm count who have been unable to father a child? I would imagine that a day like this would be emotionally painful for them?
Then there are the fathers who have “transgendered” and who have become “women” and therefore technically a mother where in the past they were a father? Today must be somewhat awkward?
And what about same sex couples? Here there is a situation where there are two fathers or even no fathers at all. That must be tricky? It certainly isn’t inclusive.
Of course we could rename it Sperm Donor Day but that would be complicated too. All those anonymous sperm donors would in for a massive bonanza, but there again they are anonymous so in practice they don’t exist. Or in a lot of cases the father would be somewhat surprised if the postman was suddenly celebrated today?
The PC brigade must be going frantic.
