I'll play along with your semantics and say mother or father.
There is nothing to "play along". Don't you believe in logic, let alone objectivity?
I wish you a wonderful life
So far so good. Likewise!
You have your agenda, as do we all.
My agenda, if any, is fairness and something I call 'fuller truths'.
you have to think about what these statistics mean. It is skewed by the fact that of single parent homes, more than 80% are led by women.
Exactly right. There are many more female-led households than male ones. I wasn't sure if anyone would pick up on that (of course it is more difficult for a man to get custody than a woman and our court systems need overhauling). However, a substantial number of women who are still married abuse and/or kill their kids at a higher rate than married men.
This goes against the conventional grain as espoused by Polishmama
who made a case for motherhood privileges because of womens 'special' love. That 'special' love is not evident in women who abort their unborn; who dump newborns in toilets and dumpsters and who otherwise murder their children.
with both mother and father present, 80 percent of child fatilities within the family are attributable to fathers or father surrogates
You were able to come up with a caveat for mothers murdering their children but not surprisingly you stop short in your research when it suits you. Most of the father surrogates are the 'bad boys' women hook up with as they crank out kids to multiple fathers. Indeed, most of these men have criminal records. Biological fathers are the least likely to kill their kids followed by biological mothers. Almost exclusively, when biological fathers kill their kids, they are also killing the mother. That's because 90% or more of the time, the issue of divorce and/or breakup is the trigger with the woman threatening to "take the kids". There is no excuse for this and I am merely presenting the emotional state where the father feels that he has nothing to live for. Perhaps it is men who need all those shelters and help that women have?
There is no excuse for murder no matter who does it and no matter for what reason. That includes the hidden nature of female crime which is overshadowed by bogus feminist statistics that constantly focus on "evil males" and "female victims" only.
