Get To Know Piers Morgan

Earlier this week, a certain TV personality ruffled some feathers when he tweeted a picture of another famous person taking a walk with his baby strapped to his chest, implying that it was a most un-masculine thing a man can do.

Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose#emasculatedBondpic.twitter.com/cqWiCRCFt3— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 15, 2018

Piers Morgan’s tweet about Daniel Craig was derided by men and women alike from across the globe, but Morgan dug in his heels and refused to take it back.

I found this episode to be quite amusing, especially as a Chabad rabbi and father of seven children, including two teenagers. While I’m not offended by the assumption that involved fathers are somewhat emasculated — everyone is entitled to their own opinion — I do believe that this attitude is a stereotype we would all be better off putting behind us.

About 15 years ago, I was interviewed together with a small group of colleagues by a New York Times reporter in conjunction with the annual conference of Chabad emissaries held in Brooklyn every November. One of the questions the reporter asked was about the role of our wives in our respective communities.
