  •  It should be asked just why women have to head... (0+ / 0-)

    their households and what happened to the sperm "donor" so to speak...

    I'd say that America's dislike for women as well as people of colour as well as LGBT people is that a strong, authoritarian male (possibly also abusive and more...) was rebuffed and was told the "No" word, and also these males have been repeat offenders and cause maybe more than 1 woman head of household families each, betcha.

    And that is, the rebuffed authoritarian male has of course again blamed the victim and wants to regain control of his trophy kids, even at their peril.

    It's more than a woman's choice to have 3-5 kids and to be paid 75% of what a man would earn and also have the burden of single-handedly raising the kids. True, many women may have seen the writing on the wall and decided NOT to have a male except as a "donor" but I think those numbers are fewer than my suggestion above. Further, many other women have found a spouse other than a man and are living as a "single mother" because they cannot marry.

    I'd like to see the stats confirm or reject my ideas. :)

    Ugh. --UB.
