A child needs a mother and father.

A child needs a mother and and father who will demonstrate and teach life.

My father died when I was an infant, does that mean I didn't learn life?

No, I was just stating what I think is the model for a marriage and raising a child.


Sorry about the lose of your father.

I realize that was tough.

Fantastic . And the fact that so far all the response to seeing the cover has been positive and that they got so many complaints about the thing over the magazine cover makes me even happier. Progress in action.

I find it disturbing that someone so narrow minded is teaching. I've seen no indication that you employ critical thinking. I've seen no indication that you're willing to recognize the progressive nature of the family. The implication will be that any child without a mother and father is inherently disadvantaged. And that's just not true.

"the progressive nature of the family."


Please post why the progressive nature of the family is better than a mom and dad.

Your posts such as this make me wonder what will happen if one of your students comes from a home with a single mom or two moms or two dads. Are you going to be this callous and close minded towards them as you are in FYM?

I guess I am so out of touch and ignorant.

I just believe in that stupid ideal that a family needs a mom and dad.

I'm all for a stable family unit, too. I think it's pretty obvious that society runs a hell of a lot better with those in place. I just don't think there needs to be a checklist of who all's "required" to be part OF that stable family unit.

Are you just pulling people's legs or something? 'Cause if you're not, that worries me.

Please post why two moms or two dads are inherently inferior to a mom and dad.

Look, it's one thing to state a position and stick by it, but if you're going to ask others to explain their position, you should be willing to explain yours in the same level of detail you're asking of your opponents.
