We are in the last quarter of the year. 2020 took forever to move and this year just flashed before us. The Lazy Geeks: Final Stretch of 2021 really has nothing to do with the course of the year. Things get kicked off with an arcane Christian operating system. After that, we quickly move on to Adam’s view of paternity leave.
In the conservative media, pundits have been making fun of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for taking paternity leave with his newly adoptive daughter. Obviously, they don’t have a problem with men taking paternity. They just have a problem with a gay man taking it. It’s their veiled attempt to make women/gay jokes about him, which not actually calling it what it is.
Adam, who has five children, doesn’t have a problem with it. In actuality, he finds it funny that other men think it’s gay for fathers to want to spend time with their new kids. He recounts a story where Walmart was happy he scheduled the delivery of one of his children. This way he wouldn’t have to call out on work.
