Women, children, disrespect – Three articles on women, children, fatherlessness and disrespect — From broken relationships to disrespect, social chaos and criminality.

Lucy Cavendish talks to the women who have built one big happy family out of several doomed relationships…(Full Story)
Note: The stories related in the article are of women who revel in the conditions of fatherlessness they created. However, who is to say that these “big happy” families are all that happy, happy enough to be the last, each, after a series of broken ones with expunged fathers? It seems that some will hold that these women are little more civilized than bitches in heat and have use for fathers only as sperm donors. Why would anyone call a social hodge-podge like that “one big happy family”?

Remove parents, even if only one half of them, fathers, and the result is anarchy.The next article’s got it right, but it is amazing how many of the comments shown after the article don’t get it.
