Paternity Leave: Do we really want it?
Paternity leave is silly. Seriously. It goes way too far. It hurts the entire human race. Degrades women and men. Let's celebrate instead the differences between the sexes and that the sexes are good at wonderfully different things. Repeat: women and men--the same as different tribes and cultures--are different. Sure, every dad should help in parenting. Every dad should be a hands-on baby carer. The question? How much? And when? The word is dilute. We are so quick to dilute what's wonderful and what works between the sexes. Let's not destroy & dilute the strengths and elevate and cover up the weaknesses. Let's not dilute the greatness of the human race with yet more new age nonsense asking for equality when equality demands only serves to kill merit and excellence. People are not equal. Never have been. Never will be. And we don't even want them to be. Men and women are different. They are good at different things.
