Another day, another article trying to give dads any other excuse for staying home than a love for their family. Recently, we covered a My Fox Houston article that claimed stay-at-home-dads are losing the point-and-laugh stigma, all while pointing and laughing. This time around, it’s Wisconsin’s Wasau Daily Herald, who claim that “men who have been forced by the Great Recession to take on roles traditionally filled by women are increasingly accepting their new duties.”
Et cetera, et cetera.
Problem is, the article also mentions (actually, in the other half of their own sentence), that some fathers “in some instances are choosing to stay home with their children even when other options are available.” Sounds like fathers staying home are less victims of the “Great Recession” than champions of loving their families.
