Re "Do moms need a man? No. Do kids need a daddy? Yes" (Viewpoints, June 2): We men have to read about ourselves in the view of a woman. First we are tired of being told how to act. We long ago determined that women are a luxury that we can live with or without. Fatherhood is something we can embrace, but without the interference from women. Until women learn this, we men will remain on the sideline.
