Examining the Double Standards of Single Parenthood: Top 10 Celebrity Single Dads
Gender equality of Single Dads, a less talked issue.
Lets look at the top 10 cool celebrity single dads.
Sexual equality on various levels have always been the concern of the educated man. The role of both parents taking part in the process of upbringing has gotten stronger than ever. Yet to this day, how society perceives single parents differently based on their sexuality is different.
According to a survey by the OECD, the United States single mothered families with kids under the age of 18 is approximately 8.5 million and single dad families reaching 2.6 million. Even when there is this huge proportion of single dads out there trying to do the best they can to ensure that their child’s needs are met, there are no studies sufficiently enough on the focus of single dads as compared to single moms. Is all the fuss about sexual belonging in the books and calendar, or are we actually worried for providing those children whose parents are single ?
Social media influencers, presidential candidates and who not haven’t raised their voice for this cause, but here we stand today on another mothers day, surrounded by double standards for these mothers (single dads). The dad stereotype has not only effected one side of the parenthood but the other as well.
With that set in the frame lets give a great standing ovation to all the single dads out there who have become their children’s mothers too. Happy Mothers Day!
