Single Motherhood Sucks According to Science

Not that this was news to anyone,at least not to anyone in this particular sphere of the web, or anyone with a reasonable amount of common sense.

As if the actual numbers and statistics, the demographics, of children raised by single mothers wasn’t enough; what with the increased risk of drug abuse, incarceration, decreased academic performance, increased promiscuity, higher levels of insecurity and social anxiety, etc. etc. etc.

Now we have Professor of Neuroscience, David Linden laying down a few interesting facts, namely that mothers make terrible mothers when on their own.

Of course you try to bring up these kinds of facts in public or during conversation and most people jerk their knees at lightning speed, and recoil with some variation of pre-programmed/politically correct nonsense:

“Mothers should get to choose who they live with/are married to!”

“The woman should get to choose!”

“So you just want to take away their rights as women/mothers?”

“Women can raise children just as well/even better than a man can! Everyone knows this!” (Strawman alert! Strawman alert!)

People will instantly blurt these responses out all the while completely missing the point.

This isn’t a dick measuring contest between men and women (it’s pretty obvious who would win). For all the talk about giving women the ability or right to choose, you want to know who has little say in all of this?

The fathers.

You know who has absolutely no choice in all of this?

The children.

No one cares about what they want though, as “oppression” is the natural state for children anyways (beneath their parents, at least) and no one cares what men think. So that just leaves women for the Social Justice Warriors™ to use as an excuse to justify their pitiful self-righteous rage.

Never mind the fact that women initiate the majority of divorces, putting them primarily at fault for ruining the childhoods (and possibly adulthood) of their offspring. That just makes you a misogynist and a supporter of Rape Culture.™

This is why every single mother should be shamed relentlessly, and before you go all NAWALT on me, yes there are exceptions. What’s you’re point? Most of these women are just making poor choices and decided that spreading their legs for the wrong person (or as is often the case, the wrong people) was a good choice. Let them bear the brunt of their terrible decisions and let the world see it in its full glory so that everyone else can start holding themselves up to some kind of standard. Do not date them, do not applaud them. Ridicule them for daring to spread their bastard spawn and terrible life philosophy onto others.

I’m not holding my breath for that one, however. Still, a guy can dream.
