Father's Day is not just a celebration of fathers at an individual level it is also a time to reflect about the place fathers have in British society - hence why the attention on fathers was so welcome this past week.
It can also be used by others to attack fathers to collect politically correct Brownie points with the Fawcett Society and metropolitan elite a la Cameron or by those who don't think fathers matter a la Hornby but also it can be used to desperately attack men and fathers in the the hope that someone notices the writer.
With modern-day feminism under reasoned attack for its mutation into misandry, and the fact that so many women have made a living out of it (or want to - they need to put to use their BA in gender studies that daddy has paid for) or are desperately seeking attention themselves (in some classic 'me too' behaviour) that the type of attacks yesterday are actually useful.
This is because they are so ridiculous in their hatred of men and fathers that it shines a clear spotlight into this mutation into misandry. The comments in the comments sections of these pieces show how both women and men are waking up to it and this is especially important for women who like men and like their fathers.
They can see and read with their own eyes, how these people who purport to be their 'sisters' are using their positions to denigrate men.
Modern-day feminism will be killed off by women who wake up to the misandry rife in Britain today.
