How did the other guy react when he cut in front of him?
He didn't try to continue
did he look pissed?
I don't remember
Aw man, now I have to look up statistics how men actually provide more stability in the home environment than single women...Oh wait there it is: www.pewsocialtrends.org/.../
I didn't say there was no difference in upbringing. The study I provided states that men usually provide more financial stability than women (which often leads to a more positive upbringing), saying: "This suggests that children living with single mothers would be more successful if the mothers were better off financially. " The same thing applies to married families of low income and higher income.
That was my point, that there is a huge difference in upbringing and that I've seen many studies that point towards men being "fit" parents (in the eyes of the law) yet there is this stigma that custody should go towards the mother.Yes, I agree, wealthier parents make for "happier" children on average. However, the development of that child is a different matter, money cannot buy integrity, honor, courage or commitment. Those values have to be instilled. From multiple studies I have read, these are the areas that many single parent children have issues because of the lack of a stable home environment and an area that single fathers excel at. Both parents are necessary.
Studies actually consistently show that not only is there not a significant difference in the way kids turn out based on whom they have as parents, but lesbians are actually the most successful parents!
@mbarrington Yes but there is a big difference between two women who plan to have a child together and a single mother whose partner abandoned her and their child.
That may be true but I don't think it's down to the boy not having a "role model" that for some reason has to have the same genitals as them

I would love to talk to whoever gave this a thumb down. Why don't you actually say your opinion instead of expressing it in a weak way mate? I love easy debates.
Like other people say here they don't have that father/male figure to model themselves after is the logic
But that's BS. My brother & I didn't have a male role model for years (because my father... may have been there, but it'd have been better if he hadn't), our female role model was rather lacking as well (barely home) & all we had was our degraded grandmother. Yet we both turned out fine. Neither of us has dating or confidence issues.I think the only way we've been influenced by that is our slightly antagonistic stance towards typical women, lol.Hence, I call BS.
