The employees of dadmarketing love moms. We think the world of moms. We love our own moms. We think being a mom is a noble calling.
So, it is no wonder, after reading one of the more influential and innovative mommy blogger sites around, we ask why the adoration can’t work both ways?
You’ve no doubt heard of renowned Norwegian mommy blogger Lirpa Sloof. In her latest entry at http://www.dadscantdoanythingright.com, she offers this stunning quote:
“Dads really have no purchasing power whatsoever. Sure, I see them in stores, but it’s only because they’re handing the credit card to the mom, and then nodding approvingly at everything she buys,” said Sloof. “I would argue that dads don’t even know what that credit card does, nor do they know how to use it.”
Her eye-opening blog continues: “It would make things much easier if dads couldn’t carry credit cards, and were banned from even entering stores. It’s not like they do anything useful for their families, unless you count sitting on a couch and watching sports as useful.”
We know there aren’t many mommy bloggers out there, and it’s hard to take issue with what Sloof has to say — she is in a league of her own: she runs one of the top websites in the history of the Internet, serves as President & CEO of a major worldwide automotive manufacturer, exercises for six hours a day, bakes homemade cookies for her kids, coaches their soccer teams, handles several community fundraisers and serves in the Peace Corps. During her down time she likes to hand-sew American flags, volunteer at the humane society, write romance novels and pick up refuse in her adopt-a-turnpike program.
I’d go on-and-on, but I have a credit card application to finish.
So what do you think, should men be banned from shopping? We’d love to hear from you.
