Fathers give us life and happiness. Father’s Day is celebrated all over the world to recognize the contribution of all the fathers and men in the lives of children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. The love, care a father shows, the responsibilities he takes, dedication is worth praising. No matter what the circumstances are, he is the protector of his kids.

When is Father’s Day?
Falling on the third Sunday of June every year, Father’s Day is on June 16th this year.

Father’s Day History — How did Father’s Day Begin?
Let’s take a little dig into Father’s Day History.
Father’s Day officially began back in the year 1910 in Spokane, Washington. A woman named Sonora Dodd, 27- year-old, proposed the notion of Father’s Day as a way to honor her father. She wanted to honor and celebrate the man who raised her when her mom died during childbirth. Sonora was at a church service when she conceived the idea of Father’s Day and how grateful she was to have her father. She chose to celebrate Father’s Day in June — her father’s birthday month.

What to do on Father’s Day? 
In the morning, all fathers love it if someone prepares a bid breakfast. Normal activities for Father’s Day include special dinners, sporting events. Young children often make Father’s Day handmade gifts in school. Older children take their dads to baseball games or car shows. This special day can be difficult for those who have lost their fathers. 
The roles of fatherhood have changed with the times. These days, many couples share household duties equally. Many moms are busy with their own careers. Stay-at-home and single dads are on the rise staying at home on sick days, changing diapers. Fathers also have a strong bond with their children.

6. Let’s gossip / Funny slang for clean girls only

Мы узнали разные типажи. Давайте посплетничаем и обсудим мужчин. Осторожно! Некоторым это может показаться оскорбительным, поэтому подбирайте аудиторию для такого обсуждения.

Если у вас есть студенты, которые являются активными пользователями соцсетей, блогерами и вообще следуют трендам медиа, этот блок будет им интересен.

В интернете появляются новые мемы, а речь большинства молодых ребят уже буквально состоит из сленга, который молниеносно распространяется в соцсетях. Последним трендом в онлайн-пространстве стала классификация мужчин по типажам. В центре внимания скуфы, масики, чечики, штрихи и тюбики. 

A. Для начала что такое концепция clean girl

Let’s read and discuss. Answer some questions.

The term clean girl aesthetic refers to a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle trend based around a look that’s intended to appear elegantly casual but also minimalist and effortless. The term was popularized and is particularly associated with TikTok. The most important thing is that you feel beautiful in your skin. The Clean Girl Aesthetic encompasses principles of minimalism, clean beauty, sustainable living and eco-friendly practices as well as self-developing.

B. Прочитаем чат, где девушки обсуждают типы мужчин и могут ли они стать хорошими отцами. 

Let’s read a chat where girls are discussing different types of man and if they could be good fathers.

I don’t know about you guys, but hardcore alphas intimidate me. I was never attracted to this kind of people. To me sigma males are the most attractive, perhaps because my father is like a sigma male. Hardcore alphas probably make poor parents.

Sigmas make terrible fathers. They are so narcissistic, god!

Sigma males however…What do they typically offer to the family? In my experience, sigma males tend to be very selfish, like alphas, but without any desire to lead and inspire people.

Sigmas are alpha-ish except they are disinterested in influencing others, or contributing to their happiness. They are loners & less interested in social status. Lonely wolves.

1. Have you ever heard of alfas and sigmas? 
2. Can they be good partners and parents? 
3. What are well-known stereotypes about them?

C. Забавные названия по типажам. Давайте попробуем их перевести.

Russian slang words: 

  • Скуф
  • Масик
  • Чечик
  • Тюбик
  • Штрих

Скуф — geezer /sloven / slob — is a Russian slang word. It means a bald fat, not an old man, who doesn’t care about his outfit, stinks and often drinks beer and plays the world of tanks.

Тюбик — Fuckboy — borrows money, never solves anything, is indecisive.

Штрих — G (gangster) / mob — a criminal, a hooligan, might be an abuser.  

Масик — sugar daddy, my boo / my bae / fixer — a guy who solves any problem, arranges whatever.

Чечик — wet wipe — is a nice guy who is always your friend and you can cry on his shoulder.

  • Give examples of such types of guys from films.
  • Do you notice these types of guys in real life?
  • Which type can be a good father?
  • Which type would you rather avoid?
