I know a woman who decided to become a single mother. She treated her son as friend and confidant. When he was 18 she decided to leave the state, essentially deserting him. Fortunately he was already self-supporting. Making pizzas.
She once called him at 2 am from over a thousand miles away, sobbing because her new "boyfriend" had hit her.
He has recently been grinding his teeth at night until he shattered a molar.
He never talks about his mother.
She is a monster.
"Monster" comes from the same word as "demonstrate." A monster is a demonstration of something bad. So when I say single mothers are monsters I am not incorrect. Their kids have a decided tendency to live wretched existences, thanks to the selfishness of the mothers.
Here are some statistics about children raised by single mothers, i.e. children without fathers.
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes.
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes.
85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes.
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes.
70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes.
85% of all youths in prisons grew up in a fatherless home.
49% of all child abuse cases are committed by single mothers.
Would you like to know some famous fatherless men?
Billy the Kid.
Jack the Ripper.
Lee Harvey Oswald.
John Wilkes Booth.
Also please note the word "bastard" has two meanings: a fatherless boy and a cruel, heartless man.
Single mothers are an example of the mythological Terrible Mother, who is destroying - and sometimes seductive. Single mothers often treat their sons as friends and confidants - emotional sponges. That is an example of seducing their sons and putting them in a predicament they should never be in.
In years past pregnant single women faced such opprobrium they were sent away to have their babies in secret, which were then given to a married couple or else to an orphanage. The children turned out better than if raised by a single mother, none of whom even now are economically self-supporting.
These day, rather than marrying the father, they marry the State and live on welfare. If none of those, they are at best they are parasites on their parents. Their children are the ones who suffer, and suffer terribly.
We cannot to back to the days of that social disapproval. So we have to go forward and try something else. For one thing, we can cut off welfare to single mothers. People respond to economic incentives.
With no money available, the number of single mothers having babies will go down. And it will go down a lot.
