No British dads on the sidelines

...of their daughters' games. At least if you follow the thinking of this guy who wrote an article in the Telegraph entitled "Men are made to work not rear children." Said writer got out of going to his daughter's sports day to work in the office and make more money.

Because that's what men do. And the forthcoming legislation about parental leave has him all in a tizzy about the changing gender order.

There's not a whole lot to say about his ridiculous stance. My first obvious point of course is that neither men nor women are meant or made to do anything. And second, I wonder how the writer would feel about the necessity of attending the sporting event of his son given that he must believe sports are something boys and men are allegedly meant to do.
