Missouri State Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-O’Fallon) is currently trying to pass legislation that would pay at-home-moms $600 each year that they care for children under the age of 16. That’s right, I said moms, not dads. You see, Davis told KMOU reporter Sarah Hollenbeck that “only women can be nurturers” and intentionally left dads out of the bill.

I gave up a well paying job to stay home to care for my children. For someone to say that I cannot be a nurturer because I’m a man is preposterous. It’s like me saying that someone cannot be a State Representative because they are a woman. It’s just not right.
Thanks to at home dad for bringing this to my attention.
