Hinds’s crisis is that he can’t stop fantasizing about sex with the random women who invade his sightlines. Well, if this is such a problem, stop taking your kids to daycare on a college campus. Find a daycare run by older women somewhere else. Stop driving through the campus three times a day. Or better yet, maybe this stay-at-home father would have an easier time if he just stayed home. Perhaps he should try to fill his mind with math problems that have yet to be solved or maybe he just isn’t doing enough laundry and other housework.
Yes and no.
This “stay at home dad” blogger actually reveals a lot here:
The latter suggests that he turn to a Higher Power if his fantasies last more than three seconds. But Hinds doesn’t believe in God. As he admits, “my Higher Power … is the nebulous ideal of gender equity.”
Nobody, either him or the Acculturated writer, picks up on that massive “tell.”
Men weren’t really meant to be “stay at home dads,” first of all.
Second of all, they are supposed to think about sex all the time. Their brains are made that way.
So here’s a man going against two major biological and psychological things, then beating himself up for feeling like shit and not understanding why.
No one’s told young men either of these things — in fact, they’ve told them the exact opposite — and now countless men believe they have some twisted mental illness.
It’s like if every girl was Carrie and nobody told her what periods were.
