Unpopular Opinion: Parenting is not optional if your original contribution was sperm.

I don’t get it. A friend is talking about how 75% of raising her kid is her job because her hubs has to work. This is a woman with a full-time job.

I have a different friend who does 99% of raising her two children, because her husband brings home his paycheck, handles the kids’ passwords and game purchases and that’s pretty much all he does.

Why do guys STILL think that “I pay for stuff” is the be-all end-all of their husband and father “job”, and everything else is the province of ”the little woman”.

I may have critiques of the heterosexual-with-kids relationship I see every day, but dear God at least the male in that situation knows his kids names, feeds them at least once a day, and does homework and plays with them. It’s almost like parenting doesn’t end at the bank.
