Sunday is Father's Day - over here, at least.
I love Father's Day - I get spoilt rotten and just get to do fun things.
But there is an amazing amount of sexism related to Father's Day and Mother's Day. Let me explain.
Watch the ads on TV as Mother's Day approaches. They will be showing all sorts of "ideal gifts", such as Kindles, weekend trips to a spa, perfume that costs the budget of a small country.
Last night I watched the ads as Father's Day approaches. The only thing that claimed to be the "ideal gift" was a 3 CD set called "I grew up in the '70s". Doesn't that just suck? 3 disks of stuff that was (with a few exceptions) terrible at the time, never mind 40 years later! Where are the ads for weekends away for guys? They aren't even saying that dad would love an iPad! No, dad is stuck with a sucky CD set.
Have a great weekend!
