There used to be a time when our entertainment media portrayed fathers as wise, dependable and essential.

Nowadays, a lot of fathers are being portrayed as foolish, bumbling and dispensable.

Agreed.

Our kids have some classmates being raised by “Mr. Mom.” They are a mess. One of my college friends divorced her husband after he was “Mr. Mom” for years and raised their son. Son’s a mess.

The kids need both parents — Mom to say “Be careful!” and Dad to say “Have fun!”

Amen.

Today, any TV commercial featuring a husband and wife invariably depicts the former as a bumbling, lazy, confused dork dressed like the clod he is, with the wife shown as a savvy, sassy, sexy fashion plate.

“Why did she marry him!?” is what I usually think, completely forgetting what the commercial was selling.

Yes, and the reason men are idiots on television now, particularly in commercials, (White men), is because the men of hollywood are bumbling idiots. With their own narrow focus on the left coast and belief that they do everything right and the rest of us are fools, its no wonder they get it wrong so often.
