wildcardjack: I'd like to point to a bit of hypocrisy here.Traditionally, men become chefs but we expect housewives to cook dinner... If women can't even follow directions without getting lost why should we expect them to be able to cook? Yes I'm laying out the heavy handed misogyny here but the stereotypes proceed me. I can cook better than any of the gals I've dated and the only reason I'm going out for breakfast is that I ran out of eggs and Sam's doesn't open 'til 10am. And dammit, the breakfast I had planned is better than I could buy. fark, I'll just pay for my eggs at the regular price and come back here./Fluffy scrambled eggs with sauteed bell pepper and onion on a bed of spinach .//fark your egg McDuffin
YouPeopleAreCrazy: So, in a year from now, when one of these single "co-parents" does actually meet the partner of their dreams and wants to have children with them....Marry, have another kid, move across the country for his/her job...other co-parent is in WTF mode./I foresee many issues arising

minoridiot: Should we plan for the increase demand for psychologist now?
Meethos: KrispyKritter: our loveless sexless sham of a marriage doesn't even include kids, so we're saving money left and right./ not really. biatch spends it as fast as it comes in the door.The hell you say? Just leave her if it sucks so bad, no kids = no baggage.
Nogale: I don't see anything sad about it. You have two groups of people - single women and gay men - who in previous generations would have been excluded from ever raising a child. Now, they can join up and create a loving, stable home based not on society's expectations but on what would be best for the child.How many people do you know who grew up in "normal" but miserable nuclear families?
AngryJailhouseFistfark: I stayed for the kids. That is, until my son (eight, at the time) asked me, "Daddy, why do you look so sad all the time?" and "How come mommy is always telling you what to do but I never see you tell her what to do?"It was then I knew that modeling "Unhappy in a shiatty Marriage to a Joyless, Controlling Coont" was not in the best interest of my children.My children and I are much happier with the new Mrs. Fistfark. The ex-wife remains a bitter, joyless, controlling coont.
miscreant: How is that any different than a couple who had kids and got divorced, and then find a new spouse who wants to have kids of their own? Custody arrangements don't just allow one parent to pick up and move with the kids unless the other parent has basically been absent anyway.
Champion of the Sun: A big part of parenting is showing your child how to love someone else and have a relationship. It's a difficult thing to do. Being in a relationship is hard and being a good partner is an admirable goal. This just teaches kids one more way you don't have to be an adult. Too self centered to maintain a relationship? Just skip it all together instead of growing as a person. This seems like a bad idea. You don't make it to your forties without finding a partner because you're a good person. You make it that far because you're broken. Something is wrong with you and it's probably best you don't pass that on to children. Gay people at least have an excuse of societal bigotry messing up their community. But the 'traditional family' people have so poisoned the well with their hate speech against gay people that we can't have the discussion.
