It is often claimed that single-parent families and single-sex couples are unnatural unhealthy ways to raise children. ‘Every child needs a father AND a mother,’ the politically incorrect wisdom goes.
However, when the fraudulent gay-curers checked the emotional health of children raised by single mothers, they found those kids to be more emotionally and intellectually capable than the average youths. They published this with a cop-out rational: sperm donors are heavily selected and therefore these kids do better. Which is ridiculous, of course, because that throws out the whole weight of who raises the children.
Truth be told, children raised by single(-sex) parents are only worse off if these alternative parents try to imitate modern Western heterosexual couples. The “this is my kid, stay away from it” attitude.
There is in the West this novel modern racist idea that children are the possession, the continuation, and the fulfillment of the two biological parents. This is not true and very damaging to children growing up.
Is it just my romantic imagination that I think that a hundred years ago, when life expectancy was much lower and people didn’t travel and move so much, many more people were involved in raising the next generation? Grandparents, uncles and aunts, and neighbors.
How many children suffer because they are stuck with only two parents neither of whom understands them? In the olden days, wasn’t there always a neighbor or family member who then would say: ‘Maybe it would be good for everyone if s/he would live some time with me now’?
It is a bogus idea that traditionally kids were brought up by one mother plus one father period. There were always many others.
And that is exactly what many ‘alternative’ parents do: involve others. Once you start thinking outside of the box, it’s also easier to think outside of the straightjacket. Net pretending that they alone suffice.
It’s the world upside-won then to blame single-parent families and single-sex couples for failing their kids.
Children need much more than two (exhausted, isolated) single-couples.
