In this environment, the man or woman who stands up and declares “I dissent” can be profoundly discomfiting. You are those people. And you are discomfiting precisely because all sides understand that by dissenting you are saying that the prevailing orthodoxy is false, that there is a better path to a happy and fulfilling life.

Fathers bring distinctive talents to the parenting enterprise. The work of psychologist Ross Parke, for instance, indicates that fathers are more likely than mothers to engage their children in vigorous physical play (e.g., roughhousing), to challenge their children — including their daughters — to embrace life’s challenges, and to be firm disciplinarians.

The revolution of solid love.
the summum bonum of the Love and Fidelity Network: support. It is difficult to over-emphasize the importance of a vital, flourishing community where one can openly express their deepest convictions, especially about matters of love, marriage, and sexual integrity –even personal struggles on the path to virtue. The mere presence of friends similarly convinced of the value of self-respect, the goodness of families and children, and the beauty of a 50th anniversary is sufficient to provide the bedrock on which real change can occur.
