The notion that single parented homes are “broken”

Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist

Not trying to be “that guy”, but there are male single parent homes too.

And those typically aren’t the ones with stigma attached to them. Are…

Ok but that wasn’t the point if the post. And I don’t think two parents of opposite genders make a difference. Children need a community of loving adults. Nuclear families are far to small to really nurture individuals in my opinion since we’re deviating away from the point of the post.

"All single parent homes get a lot o stigma" sure thing @antarcticanking but there’s no worldwide industry and network specifically targeting and trafficking from single FATHERS. There aren’t major “public health” campaigns that slut shame single fathers. When white supremacist “scientists” pathologized single parents & offspring as “mentally unfit” and a literal danger to humanity, guess which half of the gender binary they went in on.

Oh, I KNOW all single parents gets stigmatized. Us Developing World(tm) bastards get classified as orphans just by living in a single parent household, even if both our parents and entire family are still alive. Which (to build on howtobeterrell’s point) is especially convenient if one wants to wipe out our birth cultures that have a much healthier and community-oriented approach to raising children than the dumbshit Western über-heteronormative capitalist nuclear family model. Tobias Hübinette wrote a great piece on how this model purposefully colonizes and destroys non-Western communities.

But this "ALL single parented homes are stigmatized" is just derailing. The assault on single motherhood (especially black and brown motherhood) is unprecedented.

"Every time a pregnancy is intervened upon to prevent disability, eugenics is operating. Every time someone is sterilized or administered birth control against their will or without their knowledge, eugenics is operating. Eugenics is insidious and pervasive and continues to be a threat to disabled people, especially racialized disabled people and/or disabled women."

"Girl, bite. Girl, devour. Girl, don’t forgive.
Girl, stay angry. Girl, be selfish.
Girl, walk away from him when he raises his hand.
There is no place that can handle you,
but you must go anyway, to the hills,
the mountains, the cities.
They’ll call you monster,
and they’ll be so right.
Girl, show them.
Girl, run your hands along the
wound and seal it with your
heat. Cauterize.
They thought they could get to you.
They though they could take you
and make you small.
There may be bruises but you are
no little thing.
Girl, show them your claws.
Show them your wings.
Rise.
Show them your army of injuries
who have come to fight.
Show them the others like you.
Take over the city. Own the mountains.
Bite the hand and the one
behind their back with all the good stuff.
Girl, show your teeth.
Never forget what you can do with them."

"Ideas of pure White womanhood that were created to defend women of the homeland required a corresponding set of ideas about hot-blooded Latinas, exotic Suzy Wongs, wanton jezebels, and stoic native squaws. Civilized nation-states required uncivilized and backward colonies for their national identity to have meaning, and the status of women in both places was central to this entire endeavor."

From CNN: List: States where rape is most common 
“Rape is least frequent (or is least frequently reported) in New Jersey. The state with the second-highest rate of reported rape, behind Alaska, is South Dakota, with a rate of 70 per 100,000.”
