A Changing View of Fatherhood

A couple of years ago, I posted a link to a segment on CNN (by Josh Levs) that included a group of blogging dads (==> Drew Griffin is a Dick). The interview with the dads was followed by a studio discussion with CNN's Drew Griffin, who was just as condescending as one could expect just by looking at his smug face:

Griffin's reaction to Levs' piece was predictable in a way, because--again, just looking at that face--you can tell the man's self-identity is determined upon his stereotypical image of himself and of other men. And in a way, we've come to expect that reaction from the media.

Two years later, even as people like Drew Griffin will forever be trapped by their neanderthal views, a lot has changed in society and in the general view of fatherhood by society, which means a positive piece like the one below is slowly becoming the norm.

  1. Even in the positive piece he seems like he has an attitude...maybe its just my take on things....


    1. Ha. I didn't see it, but maybe I'm so desperate that I see what I want to see at this point...
