Recently my father moved overseas, and my brother was upset by it, because Dad didn't bother to really see either of us to say goodbye before he left. We both have kids (Dad's grandkids) too and I know he was upset about that as well.
My brother's gf was saying something like, "I don't understand how men can treat their kids like that... just abandon them... like (my DD's) dad and your Dad..."
I tactfully got my point across, but what I really wanted to say was...
"Oh, because my brother isn't like that? You know, how he abandoned a kid he created too? It's fine if you want to judge my Dad and stuff for that, because fair enough... but don't be acting like you hate men like that when you're WITH one!"
When I said it in a much more tactful way, she said, "Oh... but he was young..."
AND... DD's father wasn't? They were the same age... so your point is invalid. I didn't bother saying that, but I wanted to. So badly. lol.
I definitely judge men who don't give a care in the world about kid's the created... what scum. I also judge the women who end up with them and make MORE kids with them. Are they bloody stupid?! Are they also scum who care about nobody but themselves? Or just in denial? Sometimes I think it's a bit of a combination... but I don't care, it's pathetic and I totally judge.
It all gets very confusing when I stop to think about it.
I judge people who don't know how to cook and who's family does everything for them despite them having kids themselves

The thread was meant to be somewhere to discuss it without it deteriorating into nastiness. I found your post to be really argumentative and unnecessary to be completely honest. The other members who have disagreed with certain posts have done so in a way which has been in keeping with the original tone of the thread.
All your post has managed to do is derail the thread from its original purpose so you know, cheers for that :-) it was really sweet of you.
