Josh struck a nerve with his post on Friday, Comical Misandry and the Involved Father; How Not to Screw up the Conversation About the Modern Dad. The piece was picked up by one of our favorite websites, The Good Men Project, and it was spread far and wide on the various intertubes. Lisa Duggan, co-founder of the terrific new website, The Parent du Jour, sent in this thoughtful response and agreed to let us post it here.
My wife made me look at this video; she was clearly annoyed by it. But I just thought it was a case of the media controlling the message. This is not a format for serious discourse —we know at a glance that this is going to be a “catty chat”. Adam is in on the joke, and he’s not going to break form. So be it.
