On not being a Bastard

At this time I feel it's worth reminding all readers that this blog is coming from the context and experience of a birth-father. As a result the focus is on arenas in which men are the silent minority. I know women have a hard time seeking gender equality. It's not a fair world. Men have a lot of advantages, especially so in the professional world. Just as a woman has the right, indeed the obligation, the speak up when discriminated against so, too, do I.


  1. NO YOU DON'T.

    Teeheehee. Couldn't resist. That's fair. I'm just waaaaay too used to being a girl to cut guys any slack.

  2. I am soooooooooooo glad I found you!!! I found Lia's blog and saw you there and looked you up to see what your story is. YAY!!! I am so happy you are speaking out and I for one and happy to read your point of view. Thank you. I really wish our son's birthfather was in our son's life. We speak to his mom via facebook but not him. His choice. I hope in the future he will want to have a relationship with Sam and us. He is just heading into college in Sept. so I know alot may have to do with his age. I hope as his age changes so does his desire to know his son. We still send him birthday cards and now a graduation card to let him know we still love and care for him. I would love to hear if you have any advice.
    I read that you looked for info for birthfathers and found none, I did too :( I was sad there was none as well. So its awesome to have found you :)


What do you think? I'm curious.
