Why are single moms often bashed and belittled for having children outside of wedlock but single dads are praised for going it alone?

Well...because if it is the dad that is the single parent than it is " awe , how can a mother leave a child ...or...awe its so sad that the mother died!" ....however, if it is a single mom ...it is " should have picked a better man" or " you are uneducated"  or you are getting judged because you couldn't get the daddy to stay with you ...like you are supposed to be their puppeteer or something.

I guess because so many men walk away from this so often, that it makes the other dads look like saints lol. it would be the same for women if the majority were abandon their children then few good ones will be praised too.

oops. perception* (i think)
A lot of people see a single mother and wonder what she did to end up there.
A lot of people see a single father and think "poor guy" something must have happened to his wife.
