  • Father's Day is actually a respectful commemoration of the efforts done by father figures. We have lots of father figures around the globe and I think the people who find it unbelievably offensive need to respect people who choose to commemorate it at the very least.

    The person who tweeted is the one being disrespectful. The hashtags she included are irrelevant. How will banning Father's Day stop patriarchy? That's quite a convoluted mindset she has there.

    I haven't seen a single mom offended by Father's Day because they'd already be recognized on Mother's Day which is celebrated a month before Father's Day. That's literally ladies going first.

  • That's just B. S. and I'm not one who likes celebrating anything.
    She even ignores a technical aspect of her silly tweet, don't gay dads qualify as same-sex parents?
    What's she going to say next?
    Ban Mother's Day because it's offensive to single dads? Or Same sex (male) dads?
    Ban Children's Day because it's offensive to the Childless, CFBC, etc?

  • Lmao no. If we celebrate moms then we can celebrate dads. Damn feminist extremists act like they're the only people who parent children. Shit. If you get offended by this stuff get off the internet and take up knitting - never leave the house.

    Lesbians get to share Mother's Day.

    • nobody is getting offended nor I'm supporting this tweet. what I've posted is the question came in my mind and that tweet is kinda trigger.

    • Ummm yeah you are and so are most of the commenters

  • So feminist want to take the one day that's dedicated to men/fathers but if men said ban mothers day they be screaming sexist males! Just a bunch of self centered little girls.. they don't get to be called women.

  • It's not fair to the single dads. Same sex couples obviously can't choose their sexuality but they can also celebrate the day. It may not take two people to raise a child but two females, two males and a heterosexual couple can all raise a child/children. Mother's Day and Father's Day are days to celebrate and thank our parents for helping us grow and supporting us. It doesn't matter what sort of relationship your parents are in, whether it be straight or gay couples, they're still there to help and support you. These days might be given a descriptive name but that doesn't mean that's the way people need to celebrate them

    • Then shouldn't we create 'Parent's Day' ? thoughts?

    • Personally I believe that would be a great idea. I think it's best to celebrate both our parents because some people don't have both parents or have gay parents. It's not fair that the world has only 2 days reserved for a heterosexual couple

  • In that case, mother's day should be banned because it's disrespectful to single fathers. The holiday literally has no stipulations on it. If you're a father, you celebrate it. Nobody ever said gay fathers couldn't celebrate. I mean, come on.

    Dumb feminists always trying to stir the pot.

    • I think that some will agree with you. Birthing children is just biology and isn't something to celebrate. A colleague of mine actually believes that's true. She doesn't celebrate her own birthday either.

    • Show All
    • Yes, agreed. People who don't want to celebrate don't have to. I was trying to say that some people would agree that they should be - the stupid autocorrect kept fixing my post for me.

    • @LindsayRB91rds That's totally true, if this disturbing them, they just shouldn't celebrate it.

  • There's nothing disrespectful about father's day. We celebrate mother's day too. Same sex couples can celebrate however they want. I don't see a problem.

  • Political correctness gone wild!!! Why should all the amazing dads out there not recieve recognotion from their families because of the few deadbeat dads that dropped the ball? Since when is thanks and appreciation to people who deserve it, offensive? Single mums obviously don't have to celebrate fathers day so I can't see why it would bother them. My sister is a single mum and has no problem with it. Any women who don't want to celebrate fathers day (I have never met one) are probably blaming all men for what their exes did, hardly a femenist cause. It's a bit unfair to put that onto the whole of society.

  • Single mothers are a grave threat to their children. Children who are raised under single mothers are more likely to be criminals. Yet, I digress. This comment is not surprising and adds to the evidence that society does not appreciate men. "Men must continue to sacrifice with no credit or reward."

  • Ms. Herzog apparently isn't aware of how Fathers Day came about. Sonora Smart Dodd was the driving force behind it to honor her widowed father that picked up the burden of raising his 6 children after their mother passed away. It was slow going, a complement to May's Mother's Day, and many fought to combine the holidays into one parent's day.

    Single parents have always been around. Many widows raised children after their husbands were killed. Young men would die in a myriad of ways: war, work accidents, crime. Women, however, had one other obstacle: surviving childbirth. Death rates in childbirth have dropped dramatically since the 1900s, but now women are prone to die in war and workplace accidents. Add into the mix the number of fathers that are now receiving custody of minor children with little, or no, support from the mothers.
