Let me throw in a different perspective here. We need to clarify the purpose and scope of this subforum.
If it is supposed to be a male ghetto where moms are unwelcome and dads can post about any topic, then it should be completely separate forum with separate membership and login.
If it is supposed to be about dad-specific issues, then IMO it is set up appropriately, and the name doesn't matter too much.
You could look at the low priority and activity of this subforum a few different ways. Maybe it's simply because of the small number of males using the forum, and maybe it's a testament to the extent to which males are welcome throughout the forum. In other words, parenting is parenting, and the few times "dad-specific" issues come up, there is an appropriate place to discuss them.
