Guys HATE Valentine’s Day


No one could ever accuse me of being too PC (politically correct).  Just read my column on PC lies! I’m always willing to also address the inherent differences between the sexes, in honest and frank ways. Not only do I hate Valentines Day, I hate using the word, “gender” in place of “sex” when referring to men and women.  Sometimes I use “gender” just to avoid the letters I’m bound to receive from the PC police, but since I’m taking on Valentine’s Day, I might as well go for it all at once.

The NEW A Dad’s Point-of-View column is What Will I Leave My Boys? It shares things I hope to leave them that may be more important than money and “things!”

Thursday night at #DadChat we will be talking about a sensitive subject, Sex, Our Kids, and Us. We have a very special guest who has been there and speaks from experience. Details coming for this chat on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST.

Okay, PC Police BEWARE as my post about the REAL Differences Between Men and Women. I write the truth but Women’s Studies professors and ardent feminists, you may want to pass up this one!

Editors and Publishers: If you’d like to carry my column, “A Dad’s Point-of-View™,” it is available for your newspaper or Web site.  For more details, please contact me. Readers and Editors alike: Please be aware that a new column is posted in the “My Column” section every week.

I’m available for speaking engagements for your parenting groups, PTA’s, churches and synagogues, or any organization that is interested in a spirited parenting talk with a passionate dad who has lived through many parenting challenges.  For more information and sample audio and video, please visit the Speaking Page.

Becoming a writer and a columnist was always the direction I expected to follow, as I worked with writers constantly in my first career as a television executive and producer (see my credits and resume). But in those days, I never actually set pen to paper — or fingers to keyboard.

“A Dad’s Point-of-View” began many years ago, when I was hired as a columnist for a local paper. At the end of 2008, I began my self-syndicating efforts to expand by sending out literally thousands of emails.  The response was overwhelming as my column now appears in over 100 newspapers and Web sites here in the U.S. and internationally. There are sites carrying my column in the U.K., India, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Australia, and Israel.

I now have a Radio Show – The Bruce Sallan Show – A Dad’s Point-of-View – that is carried on several stations and is, happily, growing steadily with more stations to follow.  Info is in our Radio Show page.

The subjects I cover include parenting, raising boys, marital advice, blending families and dealing with step-parenting, Faith and “Big Issues,” all the ups and downs of separation and divorce, as well as the general parenting perspective from a man’s point-of-view which, I fervently assert, is different from a woman’s!

I have an “A Dad’s Point-of-View” Page on Facebook and would love you “like” it and participate.

The REAL Differences Between Men and Women, Part One

real differences

The real differences between men and women, the sexes, is vast. Note that I used the word, “Sexes,” rather than gender. I hate the word, “Gender” almost as much as I hate being Politically Correct! So, a disclaimer: If you are a Professor of Women’s Studies you might want to go visit Gloria Steinem’s web site.
