What’s wrong with a little discrimination?
This latest protest raises some serious questions about how our well-intended celebration of certain members of society based on their familial relationships may be extremely offensive, or even openly aggressive towards some others. Some may argue that Mother’s Day stands on the same level as it obviously discriminates against men, most of whom can’t become mothers. But according to the protesters, that is a false argument because women have been the victims of male oppression since the beginning of time, and today many of them feel that reparations are long overdue.
“We have progressed beyond the traditional understanding of gender and parental roles in the modern family,” said the leader of Radical Feminists of America, a prominent LGBT rights group who goes by the name of Big Red. “Society is going through some growing pains right now, and we will have to change our perspective so that we do not exclude anyone based on their capacity to become fathers.”
Another class of offended victims, known as ‘the fatherless,’ have also expressed disdain for the celebration of fathers. The fatherless feel extremely hurt and offended that others are able to take part in a holiday that they have been excluded from. Father’s Day only serves as a reminder to them of the wanton manner in which their own fathers cast them aside. “Why would anyone want to celebrate this group of men, some of whom have caused so much heartache to their own children?” asked one fatherless victim.
