The notion is FALSE that children require a certain kind of family composition (two married biological parents) in order to do well, rather than that certain family characteristics and lifestyle advantages (such as educational opportunities, financial opportunities, stability, attention, and so forth) may be beneficial.

No research proves that when a child’s parents do not live together, joint custody is in the child’s long-term best interests, or that “the best parent is two parents.” See the research: here, and here, and here, andhere, and here, and still more, along with discussions and articles in the index here.

(Interesting, though, how “motherlessness” is almost glorified in our society, e.g. Disney.)

At thelizlibrary.org, we don’t “hate men”. We hate lies. If you have to lie to make your case (or resort to baseless and idiotic ad hominem), then there’s something wrong with your case. Stop lying. Stop it now.
