Male Author Slams Woman Author’s Editorial Slamming Working Mothers as Being Insulting Against Women AND Men
Controversial columnist Miranda Devine made headlines in early February after writing a piece about working mothers.
In her column, titled ‘Don’t let your career make you a bad mother,’ Ms Devine said ‘motherhood is under threat’ and that ‘young women are coerced into prioritising careers and becoming feminist warriors against the so-called pay gap.’
Since, the column has been slammed by a number of women and furious mothers, including radio host Em Rusciano, who have labelled the piece both ‘offensive and ignorant.’
And now, Australian father-of-two and daddy blogger, Brad Kearns, has lashed out at the piece in defence of both himself and his wife.
‘Hey Miranda Devine, as a dad, I’ve never felt pressure to justify my career decisions to complete strangers,’ he (Link): began.
‘Nobody has ever asked me how having children was going to impact my study or work. To be honest, I barely even entertained the thought that it could hold me back professionally.
‘Do you want to know why? Because I’m a f*****g man and society just assumes it wouldn’t change anything.’
