Even the most casual observers of American politics should recognize how peculiar this is: rather than using LGBTQ individuals and their children as political fodder -- as the rightwing has been doing for decades to turn out their base -- the man sitting atop the 2016 Republican ticket actually seems to be courting our vote.
All year round, the nation is fed a steady diet of false claims about dads. These myths hurt everyone -- children, women, men, businesses, and all of society. They fuel the backward structures that prevent gender equality from taking root. (Why offer men a chance to do caregiving if they're just going to sit around and do nothing anyway?)
