A bit about Oscar Wilde ...

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (October 16, 1854 November 30, 1900) was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and short story writer. One of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day, known for his barbed and clever wit, he suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned after being convicted in a famous trial of "gross indecency" for homosexual acts.

What an idiot! This clown must have grown up in an extremely disfunctional family with a dad that was either not present, abusive or whatever. A father is the head of the home. He is responsible in leadership for whatever takes place in the home. Without that kind of leadership the family unit suffers. That's not to say the wife doesn't lead also, she does. It's just that the man is to lead his family and is ultimately responsible.
