THE idea of fathers taking 12 months out of the workforce to raise their
kids is beautiful and idyllic.
But let's be honest here - the number of men living in heterosexual
relationships who are likely to actually call in the offer are hardly going to
threaten Australia's economy.
Because the wives won't stand for it.
Because as much as most fathers dearly love their children, the last thing
they want is to spend all day, every day at home with them.
Lie. CF The Myth of Male Power, introduction.
Usually that job goes hand in hand with perks such as being responsible for
the household domestic duties.
Yet, more and more wives won't even do that work, even when there
And while many men do pitch in - as we continually see through surveys and
research - it's the women who do the lion's share.
Based solely on women's unsubstantiated claims that they do. Do they
tell the surveyors about their watching Oprah, Dr. Phil, et al ?
While many men may look at maternity leave as time off, for women the
reality is anything but.
So says someone who won't offer a single bit of evidence...
As a working mother who truly enjoys spending a couple of days each week
with her small children, I can honestly tell you the easier job is the one in
the office where even the most unreasonable clients will give you time to
respond to a request.
Bint, you couldn't *honestly* tell us the time with an atomic clock
to your waist.
In the office I can visit the toilet with the door closed, and have a cup of
coffee while it's hot.
" Me, me, ME, its all about ME ! "
But even for the men who do not find spending their days with a crying
newborn mind-numbingly boring - are we honestly expecting they will be
prepared to make the same career sacrifices as those women who step off the
corporate ladder to spend the early days of mothering at home?
80% of them are, see Farrell. Oops, that was a fact, sorry.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying that men are incapable of staying home
and looking after their children; I'm simply saying that when it comes to the
crunch they won't want to.
No, you're saying " I don't want men to horn in on our scam of them. "
And if we're really honest about it, I'm not convinced there are many women
who would feel totally at ease taking on the family's entire financial burden
after a year away from the workforce.
<Laughs> Well, thats the first true statement. Yes, women refuse to
up to the Equality Plate.
"Often cited, for example, was a study of Stanford MBAs. 95 % of the
were working full time while only 38% of the women were."
She will have spent a year bonding with her child only to return to the
workforce full time, most likely coming home each night to take over a large
proportion of the domestic duties.
Cite ? Uh huh...
I know of less than a handful of relationships in which the father is either
the primary carer - or equally shares the responsibility of child rearing with
Yes, because as all watchers of female TV shows know, your immediate
circle of friends is as good as a Zogby or Gallup poll... not.
But even in these cases, it's the mother who is responsible for planning
birthday parties; remembering dentist appointments and haircuts and everything
else that goes with the relentlessness of raising kids.
Cite ? Uh huh.
There is a strong correlation between equality in the workforce and equality
<Laughs> So, go out and DO equal work in the workforce: see above
95% of men V 38% of women working full time... Thats NOT " equality
And until men actively want to change their lives to truly co-parent; and
until their partners sincerely support them in doing so, we are unlikely to
see much more than utopian ideals floated as government policy in the
