Men seem to be able to turn their backs on their own children easier than women do. Although women disown their kids too, father's do it a hell of a lot more often than women do. Why is this , in your opinion?

My father left my mother when she was pregnant with me. I was raised by a step father. I raise my daughter as a single father. I had to learn to be nurturing and not only be a father but a mother as well. I love my little lass more than anything and I don't understand guys who don't want to be with their kids.
I do get a lot of pressure from work and other sources that think I should just leave my child to be raised by a woman and spend all my time working like men are supposed to. But I can't and don't want to. It has cost me promotions and respect. Society also does very little to teach men how to be fathers and caregivers and support them, so many men are at a complete loss when it comes to children. When I got divorced I looked for resources available to men in Canada where I live, I found there are no resources for men whatsoever, but there are many, many for women.
In general life as a man I'm treated much differently than mothers are treated, no allowances are made for me4
