in an ideal world polonius.
It's not an ideal world but shoiuldn't each of us at least strive for some ideal? All too often people use anecdotal evidence (my aunt did this or that or I know soemone who...) to prove a point but likelihood should also be considered. So a stable gay relationship might be better to raise a child in than a married couple of alcoholics. But possibly a stable marirage would be better way of presenting kids with both
role models than a stable single-gender one and would probably endure longer.
Due to Hollywood's glamourisation of fly-by-night behaviour people's resistance to dysfucntional situations has been lowered and that is part of the problem. If footloose walk-away daddies, slutty unwed mothers and othera acting like total creeps were socially stigmatised and blackballed as they should be, maybe we'd have less irresponsibile egoism about. But the overly permissive society and its "anything goes" popculture has people tolerating increasingly negative situations and saying things like people aren't perfect, the world is not ideal, life is what it is.... and that apparently is supposed to explain away every type of stupidity and misconduct.Merged
