I am a part time stay-at-home dad, and I know many other full time SAH dads. Men enjoy a lot of privilege, but this sort of thing is real.

Feminist Philosophers

for being there without a child. This sort of thing strikes me as one of the most pernicious ways gender roles are reinforced. A friend who is a father told me that when he is with his child at a play ground, he has to stick with the child at all times in order not to be kicked out, unlike the mothers who can sit on a bench while their child plays. Women are simply accepted in child-oriented places, while men are viewed with suspicion.

Thanks, S!
