    So my question is:
    Does this contribute to the constant feminization of our society? Is it just a paid vacation?


    WTF? Feminization?
    I think the problem is that more men don't get longer paid leave time in general.

    No feminization involved in wanting to spend time with your child at any moment in their life.

    Niggas call the dumbest shit feminine. Yeah...wanting to actually raise your child and be there is feminine lol

    So you need time off work to raise your child now???
    You reachin (as usual) my nigga

    A newborn...yeah that's a time consuming thing you kind of need to devote your attention to.

    he's not alone

    yet i'm so wrong for pointing out the toxic ideas around masculinity, femininity, and sex

    There’s toxicity in blurred ideas of masculinity and femininity and sex towards groups of people who on average show similar behavior....

    The fact that more than half of men show more masculinity and more than half of women show more femininity naturally....shows us that these roles are important and blurring the lines would also have a negative effect...do any bad ideas come to your mind when thinking of these ideas??

    Honestly...the guy you describe is not the guy you would want....as your father, husband, son or brother....

    Do you have any kids? Serious question. Because if you don't then you have no idea how much time and energy goes into caring for a newborn. They literally can't do anything for themselves and need someone to do everything for them. And all of that shouldn't fall on the mother. Again with the hormone changes, mental and emotional changes, and physical changes putting all that on one person to do is just foul as hell.

    @mryounggun
    The amount of time niggas saying they take off ain't a significant enough time to really make a life-shaping difference in a child's life. And even if it was, these same niggas chose to go back to work for one reason and one reason alone...not because their share of the duties has been fulfilled, or the mother had adjusted to whatever situation she in.. NO, simply bc they wasn't gettin' paid no more.

    @blackrain
    I have a 6yr old son and a son on the way. I would never, as a man, allow anyone to cover my responsibility to my child. My primary responsibility as a man is to provide, not to nurture, and the fact that most niggas will go back to work once paid time runs out leads me to believe that those niggas agree. Because aint no way in four hells you gon tell me that after 10 or so days off, your newborn baby is any better off with or without you on day 11, but you gon take your ass to work because the bills is due.

    Fuck em, duck em, leave em alone.

    Your primary job as a parent is to both provide AND nurture. It's not a one or the other...and no the baby isn't better off which is why there's other countries in the world that offer paid paternity leave because it's not rocket science to know it takes 2 people to properly raise a child. The US is way behind on this shit.

    I just asked a question


    Because newborns typically suck all the energy out of you. It's great to be able to wake up 3 times at night to feed your newborn - and at least one of those times they refuse to go right back to sleep after eating so you spend an hour on the couch trying to burp the little fucker while watching sportscenter - without having to worry about getting up at 6 am and spending 8 hours at a job where you need to actually pay attention.

    Because changing diapers and feeding and washing and making bottles and dealing with family and shit stopping by and still having to make sure ya house is clean and food is cooked and all that other shit shouldn't fall own just mom.

    I could go on. But the simple answer is that, men get time off work for a new baby the same reason that women do: Because having a kid - if you're doing it right - is a huge change for both parents and adjusting to those changes while having to also worry about going to work is a kick in the nuts.

    Well said. Salute

    not saying men and women aren't different...but even when differences are found, no one can conclude that they are all immutable because of environmental influences

    and the general consensus among medical researchers is that differences between the sexes are greatly exaggerated

    for me it's not about blurring the lines per se...its about pushing back against ideas like the idea stay at home fathers/husbands are weak or less than...or paternity leave is not necessary

    is that really a bad thing bruh?

    I see it like this some guys are more nurturing and put the macho b.s. to the side when it comes to your child some not. You can only hope that the child will soften his heart and he would want to show that more mature side and do all the late night work.

    Im not sure why you limit your primary responsibility to such a rigid position.

    You're attempting to manipulate the definition and context behind what you're saying to fit your ridiculous pov. As a parent you can place emphasis on both being a provider and nurturing your child. As a parent it's your responsibility to do both and to neglect one under some false pretense of manhood just makes you look stupid as fuck. Is providing important? Of course. It costs money to raise a human being. Does that mean you shouldn't also make it a primary objective to nurture your child and give them a sense of security any child should have? Yes.

    I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    My point has been the same..I dont have to manipulate shit. My primary goal as a man is to provide. Has been that way since man existed. Seems like you're trying to change the narrative which is why I suggested that this shit is contributing to the feminization of our society...

    I can only speak for myself and I didn't mention anything about making a life-shaping difference. Like I said in my post, my main reason for taking time off was to help the transition from not having a small mammal that literally depends on you for every single thing...to having a small mammal that depends on you for every single thing. As far as bonding, some of my best memories as a father are from 3am, me and my kid on the couch, a bottle in his mouth and NBA highlights on the TV.

    Also...my shit was paid. Can't speak for anyone else. Matter fact, I actually coulda took WAY more paid time off than I did.

    And I get that...please dont make it seem like I dont. My job said I have 51 days of PAID leave, but can take up to 12weeks.

    What I'm saying is if we aint talking bout UNPAID time away from work, then you not doin this for the baby (even tho u prob never admit it). All that shit you just said you do I DO AND STILL GO TO WORK..not saying I'm better than anyone else just proves my point. Aint no difference (with the baby, mentally/developmentally) from day 10 to day 11, or day 14 to day 15...

    The only difference is niggas aint gettin paid...or they bored out they fuckin mind
    So miss me with all that 'independent woman' shit
