Why aren't there any popular Muslim Dad Blogs?

Maybe there are, but I sure as hell haven't seen them.

Technically this is a good thing because it means the dads are out earning a living to provide for their families.

It's also a bad thing because this means the online Islamic discourse is dominated by women and, sadly, Feminists at that.

You may have also noticed, if you read them, the Dad Blogs which do exist read like they were written by women or effeminate men.

Which brings me to my guest, Neil white, who is the founder of This Dad Does, a blog for "dads who do more."

I enjoy reading him because his writing is masculine and he has traditional ideas about fatherhood.

So, I thought it would be a good idea to have him on because:

  • I haven't written or podcasted about fatherhood before
  • This Dad Does fits with our theme here at Becoming the Alpha Muslim.
