A study that will only be used for good

The MSNBC headline reads: “1 in 5 U.S. moms have babies with multiple dads, study says.  Povery, lack of education and divorce perpetuate lack of opportunities.”

Aren’t you DYING to know what those opportunities are?  Also, aren’t you interested to know how many dads have babies with multiple moms?

I’m not actually interested.  I don’t care – because I’m not sure what this statistic or any corollary can tell us that will affect actual positive change in our society.  Feels like another opportunity to slam ladies.  So refreshing!

  1. I always trot out, “So what?” when people toss that into any sort of debate, and I find the ensuing silence, or “well…but…sputter…” sort of gratifying. It’s almost as if THIS is the very first time they’ve been asked to explain their opinion. That can’t possibly be, can it?
