Who is a Parent? 

“When someone is considered in the role of parent, he or she cannot be viewed apart from the child that makes him or her a parent; an “autonomous” (in the sense of unfettered or atomistic) individual is precisely what a parent is not.”

(Mary L. Shanley, Fathers’ Rights, Mothers’ Wrongs. p. 110  in Feminist Ethics and Social Policy)
