Woolworths' decision last year to sell cakes bearing the words, "Special Person's Day" in the lead up to Father's Day caused quite a stir, but the thought police haven't finished trying to kill off the word "father" in our vocabulary yet.
The Conservative Party is strongly against enforced political correctness and the wanton destruction of our family traditions and the concept of a nuclear family.
Activist Dr Red Ruby Scarlet (whose real name is Miriam Giugni) holds a doctorate in early childhood studies and told Today Tonight that renaming the day would be more inclusive for diverse family structures which include extended families and lesbian and gay families.
FreeTV Australia, the industry group which represents the commercial free-to-air networks, last year informed Dads4Kids that its annual Father’s Day advert, featuring a father singing his daughter a lullaby, would not be broadcast as it “likely contained political matter”.
The left-leaning Sydney Morning Herald published an opinion piece suggesting that Father's and Mother's Day promote gender stereotypes.
Socialist Facebook and Twitter trolls have been marshalling their forces for another assault on the concept of Father's Day this year with calls to rename it, "Parent's Day".
