Family is important for Wolf in the film. Can you talk about your family?
The rest of the website is similarly pedestrian. His biographical page includes a few old family photos. The large blocks of text on his “issues” page seem to be just plopped down without much thought. The only small glimmer of personality baked into the site is Christie’s 404 page, which features him “dad dancing” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
My friend Celeste, a journalist and singer, says, “We’re supposed to think that kids are the most important things in our lives. But kids are the best and worst thing that can happen to a person. And I’m someone’s kid, too, someone who wanted my life to be significant and fulfilling on any level I wanted. Not just to reproduce, as important as that is, but to fulfill my potential. If I want to stay home, fine. But if I get satisfaction from doing important work outside the home, then my family can be proud that they prepared me for that. Just as I’m preparing my kid to be independent, my mother did the same for me.” She adds, “Not working was never an option.” And my educator friend Fiona says, “I love what I do, however misunderstood it is and knowing that being ‘just an art teacher’ means so little to the rest of the world. I am thankful that I have this choice because there are others who just … don’t. I want my boys to be aware of that issue and have a perspective on the world so that when they are older maybe they will advocate for more opportunities for all women who have to/want to work and have a family. Or feel comfortable staying home as dads. And to be a part of the future which may be different.”
