    because more men than women tend to walk out on their kids. and women naturally bond more with their kids than fathers.

    Fair enough, it was the opposite for me, so I guess that's why I don't see it as fair

    Because men didn't use to spend as much time with their kids. That is changing though. My father doesn't really deserve one, but I think my brothers-in-law should both feel the love on father's day.

    same but it was still painful and caused long lasting damage. Something a father does not have to deal with.

    Yeah, I completely agree with that - I just can't say we ever bonded and probably never will
