They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today”
They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today”.
They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
They’d say “Bill Gates founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
Get your shit right and use women’s names, not the number of kids they have.
To be honest it’s true, and it’s sad that they are untitled to being known as only a mother. Not an independent person. But I also se headlines where it would say ‘father of…’ and that’s also not acceptable. Let people be untitled as themselves, I’d hate for people to said that about my mum, like I’d prefer it if they said ‘Wanda did….’ Not ‘A Mother….’
