I am not understanding this one. I am as conservative as the next person but I am wondering at some of the reasoning I have seen in this debate. In here and over at the stir and on fb. So the reasoning I see is that single moms should be celebrated on fathers day because they teach their kids the "guy" things. Like changing a tire, not hitting women, ect ect are exclusie to men somehow?I am not an uber femenist (think most are a LITTLE crazy ;) But I learned to change a tire because I wanted to know. Does it not bring up the whole social stereotypes of the sexes to assume that single mom's need this holiday to validate something? And doesnt ot bring up a whole nother issue when it comes to gay parents. With this argument that single mothers need to have this day too, arent you in a sense saying that gay couples need a definate "mom" and "dad" to make it ok?Answer Question

Gee, why don't we just call both holidays "Parent's Day" ... would that make everyone happy? Holy Hell, what is so wrong with having a special day just for Moms and one just for Dads??
*sigh* Birthdays are not the same thing. Does everyone in the country celebrate your special day? Are there cards that people can buy that say ... Happy Jane Doe's Birthday! or Merry Jane Doe's Birthday? Do the stores have Jane Doe Birthday Sales?
