Today- on my commute home from work, I was catching up on my Twitter feed when I came across this article posted by the Huffington Post: Single Mothers Get Little Sympathy in New Poll. (Link at the end)
Immediately I was intrigued, being a single mom and all. So I read it and one quote stuck out at me the most : "As a group, the Skeptics feel unmarried or gay couples raising children do not make much of a difference on society, yet they overwhelmingly believe single mothers are harmful to society."
My mouth dropped after reading that- "overwhelmingly... harmful to society" ?!?! WHAT!?
So moms, single or not, what are your views on single moms? Are they really that harmful to society? What about single dads? Or even- Fathers of the children of Single moms- who choose not to be involved, a.k.a. DBD? Let's hear it mamas!

There are so many reasons a mom became a single mom- the relationship or marriage didnt work, the spouse or SO died, etc. Making such a broad sweeping & insulting statement does nothing but undermine the efforts made by hardworking moms whose blood sweat & tears support their families. Not to mention what those ugly comments can do to their children. I dismiss it as pure trash whose only purpose in uttering it was to incense those who were unfortunate enough to hear it.
