  •  well (none)
    Well its good.  Apparently people are too afraid to call you what you are.

    A moron and a fool of grand proportions.

    •  I know you are but what am I? (none)
      OK, it isn't fun anymore.  WTF is your problem? Know when to quit, dude.
      •  I never let (none)
        I never let wrongheaded morons who can't defend thier point have the last word.  It will never happen.

        If you can't acknowledge that all things being equal the ideal family is a working father, and a stay at home mom who raises the kid(s), then you are delusional, wrong, and a moron.

        There is, literally, no debate.  It is not even a scientific question.

        •  Huh? (none)
          There is, literally, no debate.  It is not even a scientific question.

          Who "can't defend their point"?

          If you insist on having the "last word" after this (so that's what it's all about), you're welcome to it.  I hope I don't forget your userID, as I don't really ever want to talk to you anymore.

          •  response to idiot (none)
            I said:
            All things being equal, any other arrangement is sub-par.  That's the crux.  You have to admit it.  In any given situation, the ideal is two healthy parents, the mom raising the child fulltime.

            To which you said:
            "I don't admit it"

            then

            "Uh.  Nevermind"

            Which is when I called you a loser with nothing to say.

            Things being equal, the best situation for a child is two healthy parents, the mom raising the child fulltime while dad works.  You deny this.  You apparently have some secret method that's super top secret that no one else knows about that produces better results.  But you just can't say what it is, or provide any type of basis.  In fact, you can't even spell out what is a better situation.

            Therefore, you a fool, moron, loser, and idiot.

            See?

            And yes, I will have the last word.  You've posted, what, four or five times about not responding, being done, not talking to me.  I don't you have it in you, gasbag.

            Therefore,

        •  Wrong (none)
          You, sir, are overgeneralizing things. Whether the traditional arrangement, "all else equal," is best is a question that cannot be answered. That is because things are never equal - not even on an hour to hour or day to day basis.

          I think it is a bit over the top to be as critical of someone who disagrees with you as much as you were. People can and should choose the parenting arrangements that work best for their own families. As long as they are fulfilling their parental responsibilities well, what's to criticize?

          We also need to stop stereotyping fathers as being incapable or less capable of child care than mothers. I can tell you from personal experience that this is not the case. That something is traditional does not mean it is best for children.

            They certainly can be equal enough.

            But even if not, you should be able to agree to the statement if intellectually honest: all things being equal the best arrangement for the welfare of the child is fulltime mom, working dad.

            It's a good indicator though!  I am not saying a father can't be a good stay at home dad.  I am not saying it should be discouraged.  I am saying nothing of the sort.  I am talking about what the ideal is.

            Ideally, the mother should raise the child with help and support from the father.  That's the model.
