Equality has become a one-way, dead end street with two-way traffic.
When abortions are preferred, by people who would never tell you that they would prefer to have been aborted than born & raised in a single-father household, equality is non-existent.

And he may just be right.

Congrats on having been a Single-Father. This year recognize the tens of millions of people raised by or born into a Single-Fsther household proving that Men Are Parents, Too.
Put an end to the double standard of gender prejudice & exclusion. Level the playing field & give men the equal privilege of choice as women have.
Open an inquiry on the insitution of Family/Divorce court and its tenacles which operates on its own self interests and impunity.
I ask that you make a public statement of support who, as Single-Fathers, have been shown to be more successful at raising children through high school than Single-Mothers.
Mr. President, contrary to insider opinion, the institution of Family/Divorce court is a $60 BILLION industry that has cost countless lives & has used children as pawns while enriching itself.
Equality, like justice, has no favorites. It has no "teachers pet" nor does it privilefe anyone ober everyone without proportional reciprocity.

Few know that the White athlete on the podium is an Aussie who gave John & Tommie the idea of raising their fists.
He paid dearly.
He was exclused from representing his country in future games for having done so. When he past away, both John & Tommie were pallbearers at his funeral.
Well done.

Tommie Smith - June 6, 1944
HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Mr. BIDEN, Iask that this Father's Day you give a big shoutout of appreciation and gratitude to men, like youself, who are SINGLE-FATHERS.
Represent men as equals to women in reproduction and parenthold putting to rest the stereotype that the privilege of choosing to be parents is exclusive to only women.
Or legalize abortion for both women and men.
Congratulations on your success as a SINGLE-FATHER. You and so many others like you are living proof that abortion doesn't have to be the defacto outcome when women don't want to be mothers to their off-spring.

The Mexico City games was a historic Olympic game for Black athletes.

Jim Hines, who in 1968 became the first man to sprint 100 meters in under 10 seconds, and later that year won a gold medal in that distance at the Olympic Games in Mexico City with a blistering time of 9.95 seconds, a mark that stood as a world record for 15 years, died on Saturday. He was 76. https://nyti.ms/3MTeJtX
