What problem could the National Organization of Women possibly have with the Promoting Responsible Fatherhood Initiative, which aims to build job skills and help fathers connect with their children?
Well, NOW is calling the program unfair and seeking access to it on the grounds of gender discrimination — supposedly, it only helps men (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/28/AR2007032802065.html). Of course, that ignores the fact that responsible fathers are good for mothers and for girls . . . What’s more, if this type of initiative constitutes gender discrimination, how would NOW characterize the vastly more expensive Violence Against Women Act?
Know that this is just a taste of the foolishness you?ll see if the lefties in Congress actually succeed in their efforts to resurrect the so-called Equal Rights Amendment (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/03/27/AR2007032702357.html).
