Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.
Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?
This is fucked.
alright this post makes me really angry and a part of me wants to write one of those huge tumblr social justice rants but i have an essay due in a few hours so i’m not going to waste my time BUT
all i have to say is that as a daughter to a single father i cannot tell you how many times my family has experienced hardship or discrimination simply because of the gender of my guardian… the comment up there about how single fathers get sympathy is the most untrue thing i’ve ever read
my friends’ moms in elementary school would often interrogate me about my living conditions after learning i was being raised by a single father because they assumed my dad was lazy or didn’t teach us manners or basic living skills (you know, things that single mothers would apparently do)
i remember in elementary school when we had to fill out those emergency contact forms, i always left the section meant for the mother’s info blank because well you know. the school called our house like ten times trying to notify us that we had incorrectly filled out the form and even though we told them several times that there was no “mother” guardian, they literally did not grasp their tiny little brains around the fact that i was being raised by just my father. my friends with single mothers never experienced this problem
also in high school i volunteered once at a community center set up for single mothers and their kids (i went in there assuming that would also open up their doors for single fathers too you know) and i was berated by the owner over the fact that i was raised by my dad and she basically said to me that my dad probably used some sort of legal trick to steal my brothers and me away from my mother. because you know mothers have that biological connection fathers don’t have and fathers are just out to win the case against their ex wife
i am not saying that single mothers do not experience negative stereotyping because they sure as hell do. i checked myself, and the google searches shown in this post are factual… they are questionable though i mean why are you using google search results to back up this argument… and also there are just much less single fathers than single mothers so i think that affects the nature of the search results. the struggling single mother stereotype is incredibly common in pop culture and media so that’s probably why theres more emotionally charged searches happening
but the battle between single fathers v single mothers is literally so unnecessary because SINGLE PARENTS OF ALL GENDERS NEED TO STICK TOGETHER. no one becomes a single parent willingly and these single parent families have/are often going through something very serious and the whole separation thing is so fucking dumb ugh. a parent is bad because they’re a bad parent, not because of their gender. single parents are great alright stop separating mothers and fathers
I HAVE WAITED MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS GIFSET
