What is it about showers that get us thinking the weirdest stuff?
So here I am, washing my hair, proceeding with my body when this thought assaults me. What if fathers and sons who share the same name, do so as a reaffirmation of his paternal rights? Think about it. We know moms are moms because, well, because they popped the baby out, but how in the times where technologies could not confirm his fatherhood could possibly dads know the baby was theirs? By claiming it. Surely, if there was a suspicion of unfaithfulness naming your son after you could not possibly make the child yours, in the case your spermatozoon was not the first to land, that is.
However, this theory has a but. What about moms and daughters who are named the same? Is it a sign of equality that women started claiming their right to do, and doing, the same? Is just parenting pride or a sign of kinship, regardless of who produced the baby, that is being transmitted? Was the watter too hot and am I talking utter bullshit?
