I wouldn't mind if a little more cooking and grocery-related marketing was geared toward me and my male compatriots, but I certainly have no right to complain about it... or to complain about anything for that matter.
All year round, the nation is fed a steady diet of false claims about dads. These myths hurt everyone -- children, women, men, businesses, and all of society. They fuel the backward structures that prevent gender equality from taking root. (Why offer men a chance to do caregiving if they're just going to sit around and do nothing anyway?)

Incoming Speaker of the House Paul Ryan articulated several demands before he would accept the position. Among them was his insistence that his new duties do not interfere with his time for family. Here are one working dad's thoughts on this intriguing news.
This parody Twitter account is hilarious and eye-opening.
I can tell you, it is hard. It's hard to go from a stay-at-home mom, or stay-at-home dad, or a work-at-home-parent back to a nine-to-fiver. It's hard to think that your time at home with the little ones is really over.
Sure, when you go away for work, donning your game face is important; there are contacts to be made, deals to be struck, and reputations on the line. But here's a wild idea: Maximize your travels by inviting your children to be your business trip buddies.
It isn't always easy when you have a family. Anyone who has ever tried to meet deadlines or take a call with a client while kids are screaming in the background knows how hard it can be.

We have struggled, seemingly alone, for too long. As a society, we don't talk enough about the work-family challenges fathers confront, and we fail to recognize that so many dads are running themselves ragged to succeed both in their careers and in their families. A little support from employers, public policy and society would be nice.
A recent Harvard study finds the vast majority of top executives are men who admit not making their families a priority.
