I’ll agree on a couple of them.
Part of leadership is collaboration.
Being a good father means being able to relate and communicate with your kids. Sometimes (rarely in my case) it was with discipline such as a spanking, more likely a “time-out”, or restrictions on TV, etc. But all forms of communication.
Most effective was setting the ground rules, the consequences, and then immediate follow up. (communication)
“Okay, if you can’t calm down you can’t go to the zoo. One more outburst and that is it, and you have to stay at home.” Ended up taking the other two kids and left her at home. I don’t recall ever having to do that again - it made an impression.
Although the following week I took just her to the hardware store and stopped for ice cream to get some one-on-one time with her. She didn’t know I tied it in to the zoo trip thing - just doing normal things with a dad who loves her.
If no one learns how to fix things....then who is going to fix things?
I thought we weren’t supposed to post from The Onion here?

This article is chock full of gayness

Other articles by Ian Stobbler:
My FRiend, don’t worry. Guys like the author are doing us a favor. They are accepting weakness, and will just fall away from us as the going gets rougher. They are, in a sense, culling themselves.
“My number one thing to do is HUNT (until age made it difficult)”
I remember, as a teenager, wheeling my elderly neighbor’s wheelchair through a pasture to a deer stand. It was cold so I wrapped a blanket over his legs. We stayed till we both got too cold.
Ian Stobber is a Soy Boy.
Let me guess. The author is a donut puncher
This was absolute crap. Perhaps if you are a city dwelling millennial incel snowflake some of it might make sense, but to me the author hasn’t a clue.
Agreed .. been saying that for a loooong time.
Obsolete women skills that women should ditch:
I think you just decorate with new stuff.
One must hope against hope that this was satire. There are small grains of truth - every 25th sentence or so - but this is a very sad screed.
“Instead, Learn How to Communicate With Your Children”
This is just wishful thinking; many men (at least those who could read this article) have given up these man skills:
Invest time and money in a career (instead, work for bare sustenance)
I don’t really blame women for ditching ironing.
