People with children are far more important than people without. I remember when two women 'wandered' into North Korea a while back. It seemed far more critical we get them back because one was a mother of a small child. No one seemed to asked why, if being a mother of a small child was so important, was she wandering around in North Korea??? Not even smart enough to get a freakin map???
Single mothers deserve far more sympathy than married mothers. Which has always been a head scratcher for me. A single mother generally got that way because she chose the wrong baby daddy or made a conscience choice to not have one. Why do women who make poor choices deserve more sympathy than mothers who made better choices? And single mothers of multiple children... serial bad choosers in my book - not people who deserve even more sympathy.
As a woman who has never had nor ever wanted children, society has always told me I am fairly worthless. And I resemble that remark. On a bunch of levels, I actually understand it. Growing future members of society is a noble cause, blah blah blah. But it still pisses me off.
