And yes the answer is in Care & Grooming.
When I announced that there was going to be a contest for Father's on Father's Day, somebody said that would be discriminatory against Fathers of furrbabies. So, I added that. Had I seen your post earlier I could have added that, too. However, since we have such few men on this site, I thought it might be nice if we let a man win some points once in a while.
We also have Newbie contests now and then. We have them simply because Newbies hardly ever get a chance to win any points. We are not trying to be discriminatory, but give those that would have little chance to win otherwise, a chance to win.
