A father is the biological male parent of a human being, fatherhood is the state of a man (not necessarily the biological father) that acts as a father toward a child.

Many men become attracted to our movement because of fatherhood issues; specifically, not having the relationship with their children they would like to have, usually because of divorce, and even go so far as to call it fathers' rights. This is a mistake, though, as it define us solely as fathers: would a feminist group ever call itself mothers' rights? Neither sex should be defined by their children, and if anything, a difference the other way would be more defensible.
