A Week on the Wagon: Asian Xenophobia Edition

There was so much anti-China propaganda this week on DadWagon you’d have thought we’d have revealed our sponsorship by Falun Gong by now. Yes, we may have been justified in hating on our Sinitic brothers and sisters, but come on–where’s the fair and balanced?

So this was one of those rare DadWagon weeks in which we generally spoke with one voice, and when we weren’t, it was Nathan referencing very small drag queens, or Matt wondering if his daughter’s daycare has cashed his check already, or me calling better paid writers bums.

The point is that this a time in which disdain for others galvanized the DadWagon brain trust, and we were able to capitalize on it (and by capitalize I mean PUNCTUATION not money).

Will all that blogging amity endure? Probably not. In fact, I’m calling an end to it right this moment. Yes, Matt, you are every bit as annoying as you are.

Have a nice weekend.

"When we met my dad at Starbucks he said I couldn’t play with his laptop but I forgot. He also said don’t fool around with his phone but I think I FaceTimed Australia. My dad sighed and published a short piece on Medium about the challenges of raising kids in the digital age."
