Some things to note on Father's day:
No Fathers Need Apply
What if God, nature and thousands of year of human experience turn out to be wrong and marriage between one man and one woman is not, in fact, the single best way to bring children into the world and raise them up to be healthy adults?
This is what the American Psychological Association and the National Association of Social Workers are advocating.
And don't forget the public schools where "Heather has two mommies" is a greater literary work than Huckelberry Finn.
Welcome to the Single Mothers by Choice website!
A single mother by choice is a woman who decided to have or adopt a child, knowing she would be her child's sole parent, at least at the outset. Typically, we are career women in our thirties and forties. The ticking of our biological clocks has made us face the fact that we could no longer wait for marriage before starting our families.
I want to see the woman who wrote that put into a cage with Dr. Laura for 72 hours. These selfish women see a child as some sort of plaything to have rather than a responsibility.
Let me tell you something, I am so tired of "single mother" being some sort of status symobl or badge of honor. I can't tell you how many news articles I read where someone says "As a single mother..." as if it demonstrates anything other than your ability to have sex with someone you had no intention of marrying.
Many people somehow glorify the act of depriving a child of 1/2 their necessary parenting. They see it as almost an act of bravery when it is really an act of irresponsible selfishness.
Raising the minimum wage is a national battle
A single mother in Missouri making minimum wage earns $824 a month, before taxes. She has to pay rent, bills and buy food. Other unexpected expenses like car repair, medicine and money for child care aren’t factored in. And she is expected to pay for all of this while only earning $5.15 an hour.
“$5.15 doesn’t even come close to supporting a family these days,” said Lara Granich, St. Louis Jobs with Justice director. “A minimum wage increase would help a lot of families out of poverty.”
Guess what, if that selfish mother (term I will now use in place of single mother) would get married and her husband made minimum wage then her family income just doubled! But the left would prefer to prop up selfish mothers to "help the family" rather than suggest mothers be married which would really help the family.
