|The things like custody and combat...I feel as though these things are stemmed in the sexism in society. It's becuase people think a mother is the most important in a child's life so they award her most of the custody. The poeple in charge don't want to put women in harms way because...as you said...she is somebody's mother.
I echo your sentiments: are the men not someone's father? Are father's not as important as mothers?
The only thing we need to consider...feminism is different for many people. I consider myself a feminist, but not a radical feminist. I do not believe MEN are the source of oppression; instead, I feel it is the socialization of society.
