The world is heavily politicized, and people are picking their camps. They are also fighting over even the smallest issues in the gender wars and there is no end in sight. Actor Terry Crews was taken to task during an episode of “The View” recently when speaking about the importance of children having a father.
In the clip below, Crews says that a father gives many important things to you a child, including his inheritance of a legacy, his confidence and his name. But he’s not talking about the words behind the name. Instead, he is referring to the identity that children keep with them when they go through life.
Mothers are precious and necessary in the life of a child, most people would agree with that. Would it be wrong to say the same thing about fathers?
During the debate, Sherri Shepherd comes to Terry’s defense. Shepherd deserves credit for her support of Crews, since she is in the middle of an ugly divorce and has both of her ex-husbands filing court documents against her at the same time. Whoopi Goldberg, however, seems to strongly disagree with Crews, along with the lone white female on the show.
Watch the video and tell us what you think. Do children need their fathers or are fathers easily replaced? Would we say the same thing about mothers?
