Forty percent of women would consider parenting solo.

Fifty-three percent of women would prefer having a glass eye over a hollow socket.

Sixty-one percent of women would prefer a high fashion shoe over a club foot.

Seventy-nine percent of women would prefer not to be treated like dolts.

The other twenty-one percent are hard- core leftist elitists.

If I was missing one of my eyes, I too would prefer a glass eye. It makes no difference whether you are male or female, it is more aesthetically pleasing. AS for club foot, it is treated as a child. It is usually put into a cast, and every two weeks or so, it is moved further into a normal position. So when they do grow into adulthood, if they choose they can wear high fashion shoes.
Anyone who calls a person a dolt is probably going to get smacked in the 'kisser'.
Oh there you go again, leave us Liberals be. Why do you dislike us so? We actually love everyone and believe in equality for everyone.

Not being in a relationship should not prevent a singe parent from becoming a parent.

- since you are unable to maintain a relationship with a man this is probably a good idea, as long as the child is female too, or transgender.

Fifty-three percent of women would prefer having a glass eye over a hollow socket.
- you have a hollow socket, its called your head.

Sixty-one percent of women would prefer a high fashion shoe over a club foot.
- stop kicking the furniture fool and your club foot would straighten out.

Seventy-nine percent of women would prefer not to be treated like dolts.
- then don't act like one.

The other twenty-one percent are hard- core leftist elitists.
- well said 21-percenter.

Well carla, I already explained it to darla. What difference does it make if the single parent is female, and has a male child? NONE! There are many single parents raising their children. Males raising female children, and females raising male children. As long as they have a relative or friend who is a good role model is all that is important.

The point is that once you eliminate the buffering , loving , and mediating factors, such as fathers and churches, you have left women and children exposed to the State.

You have left them exposed to the twin arms of cold suffering and supplication.

Even women know they were meant to be treated better than that.

Women nowadays are making pretty good money. They don't need the state to support them. Children grow up just fine without a father.
Okay, what about children whose father died when they were infants, their mother never remarried? So did they suffer? Or was their a positive role model in their life, to guide them?
Sometimes women just don't want to get married, but do want children, and do fine raising a child on their own.

"Nihil est intellectu quod non prius in sensu."

"Nothing is in the intellect that was not first in the senses."

How we teach and raise our children is not a minor point .

It is certainly not lost upon satan.

It seems to be lost upon us.

Having taught sixth graders for thirty years, I felt a desperate gambit.

Turns out the gambit was not for them, but for my own soul.

scariest post ever from the phony pollster. But it partially explains the sophomoric thesaurus fetish.
