It’s true that men shouldn’t be praised for doing what is expected of any human being, including caring for a child. It also doesn’t mean that they should be seen as anything less just because they’re using a bodywrap carrier. Looks like British host, and probably a professional troll, Piers Morgan didn’t get the memo and decided to mock James Bond himself, Daniel Craig.
The actor was recently spotted walking down a street while carrying his newborn daughter in a papoose. Piers then tweeted, “Oh 007… not you as well?!!!” with the hashtag “#emasculatedBond.”

Oh wow, we didn’t know that being a decent father lessens one’s masculinity. And, to quote Chris Evans, “You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child. Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside.”

Look, we don’t want to make fun of Piers and his “manliness.” But let’s not forget that this is a guy who has ridiculed women for how they look because they don’t fit society’s body standards. He also proposed a “Men’s March” to fight back against women and “rabid feminists” who, he feels, have emasculated men.
Again, if he’s so sure about being a man, why does Piers feel the need to defend it by mocking other people? Piers sounds like the guy who screams “men deserve rights because we’re being stepped on by women!” and also “not all men are sh*tty!” He is both blind to how fragile his masculinity is, as well as how clouded his judgment is because he’s a successful white cisgender man.
Piers is a father of four children so it boggles my mind how he could dad-shame (wow, who knew this word would be a thing?) Daniel. Maybe it’s a reflection of how Piers is as a parent—if it is, then he’s a bad one.
On the brighter side of things, dads have responded to Piers with adorable photos of them with their babies. So we’re leaving you with these photos so we could forget about Piers and why he’s relevant. He needs to shut up with his sexist and ignorant remarks after all.
There’s me carrying my youngest daughter, in the 7 years since this photo I’ve had my nails painted, hair done, been a patient at their dentist and worked in their kitchen more times than I can remember. Might not be manly, but its fun and I wouldnt change anything. pic.twitter.com/AxCXHyNsLM

Ahaha, Piers, you flaccid old dick. I’ve seldom been happier in my life than when walking around with my babies strapped to me. What a loss for you that you’re too much of a man to be a dad. pic.twitter.com/PE6V5OrXBn
