Ignorance is bliss. It seems you have it all figured out. Its nice to be on the judgement seat when you have no idea how this woman or anyone finds themselves under the roof of a homeless shelter. Your assumptions are profound indeed.

It also isn’t at all clear whether any of these women actually ever had husbands or even stable relationships. I suspect most didn’t.

And I more or less agree with eduardo1418 – the government has been using wars for generations to flush surplus males – I’m almost convinced.

Want the $1000 vet bill run up in 36 hours trying to save a cat born with renal disease,

I COULD spend that money on my kitty – this woman breeds with no idea of how to provide for them,

And yeah assuming the father at least has a roof over his head is reasonable – the vast majority do.

Point is that this ‘oh I’m a single mother so feel sorry for me…’ garbage is getting very old. They did NOT spawn all by themselves.

If they can not care for them, then the owe the kids a duty to give them to the other parent who can or the grandparents or aunts/uncles and if that all fails then to someone who can take care of them.

They CAN NOT provide for their kids – and ‘oh I’m a single mother and jsut spread my legs and bred without thinking and nor I hate the father….’ is a load of bullhockey.

Absent the father being dead, in jail, or a total nut case who beats the kids, then they would be better off with their PARENT – their father – than the woman who can not care for them.

Of course you would never sit up with it and watch it die. You leave that messy process to professionals.

You also assume the father is in better financial condition himself.

Stupid irresponsible woman to take off with the 3 kids and nowhere to go. They are NOT her property. They should have remained with their father

(2) If neither parent can afford to support the kids, give them to relatives.

(3) If there is no family to tkae them, put them up for adoption.

Living in shelters and poverty with their uneducated inept mothers is worse for them.

Aaah but it’s tough to focus on real issues from the high altitudes of Davos.

Anything that can help break the cycle of poverty elevates all of us.
