Resources for Exiled Fathers

"Birth father? Fathers don't give birth! The male equivalent to "birthmother" would have to be "ejacuation father" - sounds pretty bad, doesn't it? And for "tummy mummy" what would we be, a "dick daddy"?" - a natural father.

Note: The terms "unwed" father, "birth father", "biological" parent make a parent appear to be less than the mother or father they are. These terms dehumanize and limit the parent's role to that of an incubator. Using the honest terms "father", "single father" or "natural father" help the public to understand why real family members must not be separated to obtain babies for adoption.
