Catch Me Elsewhere
I came across a new site called, Stumbleupon, where you “stumble upon” different sites based on your interest. As I was “stumbling upon” different sites under the topic, “single moms,” I came across several sites that said that if you are a single mom you should apply for foods stamps, housing assistance, pregnancy support, etc. I have to be hones, after reading some of these blogs and articles, I became very offended! Now I am sure that there are many single mom’s out there that need some assistance but why is it that they think that “single moms” are just destitute and uneducated?
Given the state of the economy, there are families with 2 parents who may need assistance, not just single parents. EVERY single parent is not struggling. There are many single mothers who are educated, have careers and own homes. We are not women who are looking for a hand out and sitting around waiting for the government to take care of us and our children. People need to realize that just because a woman may be parenting alone does not mean that she is any less than a woman who is married. For the record…many of us our doing a damn good job by ourselves!!
