‘Society still makes single mothers feel they are not the complete package’

 

Pretty close to ridiculous.

“Society” does no such thing.

Individuals do.

I was raised by a heroic mother on her own. And that was over sixty years ago, in the 1950-60s when attitudes in society – churches, politics, organizations of every description – were far less friendly to the fact than they are today.

I never once heard my mother indulge in the pathetic whining Sandra Bullock does here. No, she did her duty, lovingly, and gave my brother and I the best upbringing possible under the circumstances.

Truly, what kind of “society” do people like Bullock – well-off and privileged almost beyond description – think they are advocating for, effectively asking for somehow still more than they have?

Just the poorest judgment possible demonstrated here.
