I mean seriously folks, even Helicopter Parents aren't like this -- they love their kids in a misguided way. These fathers are the types who just are unpleasant to be around because they disagree with everything their kids or wives do. I mean seriously, what good father doesn't share things in common with son or spends time with them and bonds on the serious things.
These fathers are of the liberal "Opposites attract" nonsense.
Some people are just plain contrary; has nothing to do with "liberal" or "conservative." Some fathers have a tough time expressing love for their sons, some have a hard time with intimacy.
Some men's "core values" are not what you'd want passed on to kids, anyway. Sometimes a lack of influence is not a bad thing.
