  • Supreme Court Decision May Force Young Women to Confront Sexual Reality

    06/28/2022 8:37:43 PM PDT · by lightman · 83 replies ^ | 28 June A.D. 2022 | Dennis Prager
    Thanks to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, young women are confronting some basic truths about men and women that feminism has denied for the last half-century. Like other left-wing movements, feminism is based on a denial of reality (or, if you prefer, on lies). The best-known example is the feminist insistence that, except for physical differences, men and women are basically the same. This includes the central feminist belief about men's and women's sexual natures. For half a century, women have been told that their sexual nature is no different from male sexual nature -- just as men can...
  • 'This man doesn't deserve children': Father is slammed for STORMING OFF and repeatedly dropping F-bombs during gender reveal after learning he was having a third girl

    A soon-to-be father-of-three is being slammed as 'ugly' and an 'a**hole' for his 'alarming' reaction to learning that his third child will be a girl. Expectant mother @kc.fulton and her husband already have a three-year-old daughter and a one-year-old daughter — and they are now expecting daughter number three, which they learned at a gender reveal about a week ago. But while the US-based mom and her toddlers were expressed joy as pink confetti rained down around them, dad was clearly quite unhappy not to get a son and expressed that by repeatedly yelling profanities and storming off. In the...

    Left-wing Twitter went ballistic on Monday over coach Tony Dungy standing with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signing a pro-fatherhood bill into law. DeSantis signed HB 7065 into law on Monday, a $70 million initiative that reportedly aims to “will provide resources for educational and mentorship programs to help children, fathers and families in the state through the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF),” according to the Hill.
  • Canada: Unvaccinated father loses right to see his child

    A Canadian father who has not been vaccinated against Covid has temporarily lost the right to see his 12-year-old child. A judge ruled his visits would not be in the child's "best interest". It followed a request by the father to extend his visiting time during the holidays. The judgement is the first depriving a parent of access rights on immunisation grounds, a family law expert told Le Devoir newspaper. The judge's decision, made at the end of last month in Quebec province, suspends the father's visitation rights until February, unless he decides to get vaccinated. The mother lives with...

    When his girlfriend told him she was pregnant, Jean-Paul Noel-Cephise was elated. Although he was only young and the pregnancy was unplanned, he had always wanted to be a dad and felt confident they would make great parents. After all, he had a good job, was financially stable with his own home and they were madly in love. ‘I’d had a happy childhood and couldn’t wait to recreate it with my own child,’ says Jean-Paul. ‘I know some young men would’ve been horrified at the prospect of having a baby but I really wasn’t — quite the opposite.’ Sadly, though,...

    In other words, of the 130 million U.S. households, there are 23.1 million "nuclear family" homes in the U.S. -- the fewest since 1959. Here are some other related numbers from the same report: Percentage of U.S. adults living with a spouse: 50 percent (87 percent in 1960). Average age of a woman at first marriage: 28.6 years (20.4 years in the 1950s and 60s). Average age of man at first marriage: 30.4 years. Over 37 million adults lived alone in 2021 (33 million in 2011). 55.4 births per 1,000 in the second quarter of 2021 (58.5 in 2019). ---...

    On October 30th, People ran a story as part of their ‘Women’s Choices, Women’s Voices’ “stories from abortion-seekers” campaign, featuring the example of a Texas woman named Mariah Armonta, a single mom of three living children, with her youngest being just nine months old. When she took a pregnancy test after missing her period in mid-October, the result confirmed that Armonta was expecting her fourth child. The 25-year-old, who had been back to work for just six months following her nine-month-old daughter’s birth, told People that her initial reaction was panic. She scheduled an appointment at a Texas abortion business...

    The success of Matthew’s parenting isn’t defined by the comedic moments when he messes up, but by the countless times he keeps going. Hollywood spares no expense promoting broken families, gender fluidity, and careerism. Yet Kevin Hart’s new Netflix movie, “Fatherhood,” is different. Based on a true story, the movie depicts the life of Matthew Logelin (played by Hart), right after he loses his beloved wife. While still grieving, Matthew raises his newborn daughter, Maddy, as a single parent. Matthew believes in the importance of fatherhood with all his being, and he lives by it. His dedication to his daughter...
  • Fatherless Children: The Progressive-Democrat Nightmare

    June is the month many American families celebrate Father's Day – but thanks to progressive politicians and policies, the number of us who observe the occasion is declining precipitously. Father's Day has always fallen short of generating the attention, sentimentality or commercial activity of Mother's Day. So many children in America now live in single-parent, mother-only households that fatherlessness is, like the crisis at our southern border, a disaster progressive Democrats ignore, deny and avoid. Fatherlessness is one of the most debilitating domestic issues confronting our country. Almost 20 million children in America live in fatherless households. Approximately 40 percent...

    There were more shootings in Chicago over the weekend. The irony of these shootings, in which 52 were shot and 5 died (Chicago Sun-Times Wire, 6/21/21), is the weekend itself….Father’s Day weekend. Some sociologists note that what we’re seeing in large part is quite often the result of fatherlessness in America. Mark J. Perry, a scholar with American Enterprise Institute, put out a chart on March 30, 2021 on fatherlessness in America. He compiled the statistics from the National Center for Health Statistics, and the chart compares the “percentage of U.S. births to unmarried women by race” for the year...

    The routine demonisation of men is a disease that has spread across The West. The enormous commitment to good of fatherhood is now belittled as evil patriarchy. This is not so in The East. Pat Buchanan described this self-destruction as suicide of a super power. What went so insanely wrong?

    The crux of western culture: Fatherhood (or parenthood if you want to be more modern) as celebrated by John Ford in The Iron Horse. (A micro-movie adaptation.) If the family is the heart of human life, then for thousands of years whatever fathers (and mothers) pass on to their sons has been a sustaining force in The West. Now such patriarchy is unfashionable. But that does not mean that good fathering has ceased to be a human need. Can the excesses of misandrist feminism be turned back to allow us a world with a better balance between men and women...

    "The greatest and most challenging test for any man is to romance and pursue the same woman for a lifetime." In my opinion, the best movie about Vietnam is We Were Soldiers starring Mel Gibson. He plays lieutenant colonel Hal Moore who commanded the first major battle of that war known as the Battle of Ia Drang. Surrounded and facing overwhelming odds, Moore and his soldiers withstood the onslaught for a week. One of the things Moore credits as a reason for the success was the love and devotion the soldiers had for one another. However, equally as important, was...

    Sometimes the simplest conversations yield the most profound insights. I discovered that the other day when I stopped to chat with our UPS delivery man. Always friendly, the two of us had some good conversations in 2019 or 2020 BC (that’s Before COVID), but we hadn’t seen each other since the great plague. When I asked how he was, he let loose. “Ah, man! Busy! It’s like Christmas but worse because we don’t have the extra help we have then,” he replied. He then told me that he had well over 300 stops to make that day and would likely...
  • Black Fathers Matter

    Fathers matter. A child without a good father figure grows up with a disadvantage that cannot be erased by money, education or fame. Activists claim that whites and police are primarily responsible for holding blacks back. In truth, black father figures are the foremost differentiating factor in their offspring’s quality of life. 69 percent of black children are born to unmarried mothers, according to the latest data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In contrast, the CDC reports that 28 percent of non-Hispanic whites are born to unmarried mothers. The CDC statistics account for a mother’s marital status at...

    On Father’s Day 2008, candidate Barack Obama made his most honest speech on race, maybe his only halfway honest speech on race. The media barely noticed. The site was the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago. From the pulpit Obama spoke to the gathered voters -- excuse me, congregants -- with uncharacteristic audacity. He reminded his audience that too many black fathers were missing from “too many homes.” He knew something of the phenomenon himself given that his father “left us when I was two years old.” Yes, that con again. Putting aside for a moment his personal story, however...

    Every life unjustly killed deserves justice. In the cause to make things right, I will not join a movement that has nearly everything wrong. More innocent lives have now been killed (#BlueLivesMatter, too) since these predominantly violent protests began over George Floyd’s horrific death. What about the black lives killed in this nationwide chaos? Do they matter?“Well, you don’t have to agree with everything. Just pick out the good things in the #BlackLivesMatter movement,” I’m told. Really? Let’s apply that same logic to another example. I’ve been repeatedly approached to partner with New Black Panthers in anti-abortion billboard campaigns. We...

    When he became the acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney was more familiar with the media’s critical portrayal of President Trump the family man than the first dad himself. That changed on one of his first trips with Trump, and it was another eye-opening case of how the media was dead wrong. “The first trip I went with him," he said at the Conservative Political Action Conference, “I bet he called his son [Barron] three times, four times on the trip.” He added, “People forget that Barron’s only 13 years old. We don’t think that about him because...
