The problem isn't whether Dads are bad. The question is why do so many women have bad boy syndrome in falling for deadbeats and playboys just because they're funny and have nothing better to offer?

Your incel propaganda isn't relevant to the discussion.

Not sure whether Parentls is another of the Loony Left's stupid new pronouns .

However , the question of whether a good Father can also 100% compensate for a missing Mother is too intricately dependent on qualitative assessments and judgements that no meaningful general answer is likely possible .
Let alone here .

The only propaganda I have to offer is how half of kids are had out of wedlock.

Tons of children end up getting born unto mothers who make bad decisions because they put charisma before wisdom.

^ MRA propaganda. A parent of any gender can be good, so-so, or bad.

70-80% of households are dysfunctional. That's not MRA propaganda. That's an objective fact over how the kids are not alright.

In fact, let's take this further:
Charisma disguises psychopathy.
Charisma is manipulative.
Charisma enables destructive leadership.

Your sarcasm is well noted.

Just because a lot of women pick bad partners because they fall for charisma doesn't mean they all do.

Most men I know in my friends' circle are great parents including my hubby. Some dads handle certain issues better than moms do. It's a team effort

On a side note because I also know men who are step fathers who are great dads; sometimes better than the bio dad and some dads are single fathers and doing a great job

Why was this poll started?

ETA: I read that article and it is so negative.

My daughter is eighteen ow.

Her mother died when she was eight, it has been just her and I with a little help from our friends…

She could be valedictorian, it she backed off because she thought her friend needed the scholarship morel than she did .

I think I did okay considering the mess I am…

There are unfortuantely a lot of moms with serious issues too: alcoholic or on other drugs, unresolved issues from their own childhood, propogating dysfunctional and dangerous parenting habits and patterns they have learned from their own families, narcissists, psychopaths, histriotics, borderline personalities, shizoids, dangerously ignorant and uneducated, , etc....

The human condition is an absolute, tragic, dysfunctional travesty. You have to laugh at it because crying for it would require too many tears. Who is the manager around here we can talk to?

Do your misogynist posts have a point?
Your cynicism is disgusting. This is a real problem where real kids get really hurt because their mothers refuse to control themselves and fall for abusive men.


This isn't a problem all women have, and there are women out there who plead with others to make good decisions. They do this for good reason as well - they want their kids to live in neighborhoods where their kids will live among other kids who are respectful.
