Scapegoating, trans-millenial, trans-religion, bipartisan — same old “father absence” (meaning, Single Moms).

Single mothers have it TOUGH.  Not only do they have to deal , too often, with  that ex that wasn’t absent ENOUGH, like our Lorraine Tipton in Oconto County, WI, facing JAIL for exercising her mother’s instincts and actually function as a personal “Child Protective Service,” when 3 CPS personnel in 2 counties, and a child abuse forensic interviewer confirmed that it had taken place.  That’s TOMORROW, we’re talking about . . . . . Not only do we have to fight like hell to get up to ground level if that guy was abusive or simply unsafe choice to start with, we also bear the blame for all of society’s ills on our narrower-than-his (many times) shoulders. 

U.S. Women have a Congress that has a paltry representation of half the country, I mean, the female gender, and doing a good bit of the world’s work, too.  Women got the vote after slavery was (supposedly) abolished and after African-American males.  Several wars later, whose cannon-fodder came from US, if we actually stand up for our right NOT to be slapped, beaten, strangled, or risk being killed in the home, AND we gave birth, we are being blamed for society’s ills and have to fight indignant males in the family law courts (and out of them) and forget it when it comes to faith institutions, I say.  And then we wonder about Raising Ophelia . . . . . (That’s a book reference). 

In a country that supposedly doesn’t buy into such superstitions as religion, but is supposedly tolerant of those who believe a God, their god, is REAL, any substitute superstitions talk will fill the gap.  Which makes my point, man is a religious animal, either that or mentally lazy.  Or mentally stressed out, such that they’d rather pay taxes and let someone else think FOR them, raise the kids FOR them, and produce healthy marriages FOR them. 

Where they run into REAL trouble is when they run into a REAL mother (meaning, one who knows right from wrong, safe from dangerous, knows the law, and actually protests when it’s broken, particularly with kids involved). 

As my laptop just got stolen, which along with no car makes life rather difficult — this is post-abuse (supposedly) life – – you get to hear from another person who’s more concise, and appropriately sarcastic.

 

I mean, listen to Randi James, who gives meaning to the book “Dumbing us Down” by at least talking back to the authorities.

Notice how (when it begins to cite statistics) how  the golden aura of “stats” seems to lend credibility and au thority to a major foundation’s study.  (Annie E. Casey being among the major ones around, and as far as I can tell, fairly conservative.  They also fund Family Violence Prevention Fund, the great group in San Francisco who (after getting significant increases in federal funding, in fact they’re one of the larger recipients around), showed a marked decrease in on-line presence of the word “Mother.”  I mean, throughout the site.  For reference, see my blog poking fun (although it’s not funy) the Obama administration’s transformation of our President’s single-mother household into a father-absent household.  The word is now “parent” when we want to equalize, and “father-absent” when we want to stigmatize, including by failing to even use the word MOTHER.  Good grief.

Anyhow I give you this post —  (see link).  Have a nice day!

Saturday Single Mothers, Absent Fathers, Pirates, Global Warming and All in Between In 2009,

I can’t believe people are still making the argument that single motherhood causes most of the societal ills, namely high crime rates and teen pregnancy. Have we still not acquired any critical thinking skills along this journey? What about the millions of dollars grant money from DHHS to study all of these problems? How many years do they need in order to figure out the answers?

In this article, it says that 1 in 7 girls at a certain high school in Chicago, are getting pregnant.

The principal in this school states, “It can be a lot of things that are happening in the home or not happening in the home, if you will. Absentee fathers are another factor.” Is that the best answer that he could come up with? How, exactly, are absentee fathers contributing to this rate of teen pregnancy? No, I’m serious, I really need someone to explain to me how NOT having a father allows for a teenage girl to get pregnant…..or better yet, maybe you should first detail what, exactly, is an “absentee father”?

I don’t have a link to the following information, but it was provided by my favorite rape-apologist, Paul Clements:

“(I)n a recent study by the Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation. Comparing statistics for its Kids Count report, the organization reported that Detroit ranks No.1 in unmarried births among the nation’s 50 largest cities. Of the 16,729 babies born in Detroit in 1997, 13,574 were black, 1,679 were white and 817 were Hispanic. Seventy-one percent were born to unmarried mothers.

 

[[Please click link  to see this (and more) in the original context]].

PS.  When in doubt, or faced with a problem, pour more money at it hoping it will go away.  the HHS and Dept of Educ have been doing this, and STILL our population isn’t “fixed” yet.  Maybe we should let parents do the job (and let Lorraine stay out of jail for doing HER job right).   

Enforce laws equally, or take them off the books.  It takes 9 months and labor, not  including any breastfeeding (if a judge, should you separate, thinks this is permissible), and the least we can do to mothers is not pretend that they have equal rights under the law just because they are (speaking from my country’s perspective) US citizens.  Or have been living here for a generation or so.
