Piers Morgan, the TV host known for feuds with celebrities from J.K. Rowling to Ewan McGregor, has now taken aim at a new target: dads who carry their babies.
On Monday, Morgan spotted a photo of actor Daniel Craig wearing his baby in a carrier. Apparently scandalized, he took to Twitter, calling Craig #emasculatedBond:
The tweet brought up a number of issues, not least of which is the fact that 007 is a fictional character, while Daniel Craig is a real person, who has a new baby daughter with actress Rachel Weisz.
Many fathers were also disturbed by Morgan’s claim that carrying one’s child is somehow emasculating, and some responded by proudly sharing photos of themselves with their offspring. Morgan’s tweet was an example of the stereotypes that can discourage dads from being involved parents and leave moms with an unequal share of childrearing duties. But the responses from loving fathers showed that plenty of men are willing to challenge those stereotypes — even if it means putting on an Elsa costume.
