  1. Thank you.

    Us bastards could use the love.

    PS. We really do just enjoy being dicks from time to time.

  2. There is a difference though between a jest between father and child, and abuse. You bastards don’t deserve love, or the title “Dad” either. There is more to fatherhood than supplying chromosomes.

  3. I can relate. I’ve come to the realization that *I* am okay without him in my life because I know that he hasn’t changed, but that doesn’t stop me from wishing he would take an interest in changing so he can meet his grandsons. I don’t think it’s ever going to happen, and I’m sad for my children, but they don’t know any better, so I think it’s better this way.

  4. I love this site. I don’t even have to know these people – it just makes me feel a little bit better knowing that I’m not alone.
    In a strange coincidence, that’s about the amount of time that my father and I haven’t spoken.
