Here's the response from a single mother to a politician who called single mothers lazy and ugly.
I don't agree with either of them much, but I completely disagree with her paragraph in which she writes: "perhaps we need to ask Aussie men, instead, why they're leaving their families in droves and the government is having to support their ex-families."
We don't need to ask them, because 70% of all divorces are initiated by women, so it's a safe bet that the reason the 'droves' of men 'leaving' their ex-families are doing so because they're being ordered to by the Family Court, who is being driven by the desire of their respective wives to get out.
I'd be curious to know who ended her marriage, because statistically speaking it was more likely to have been ended by her.
Disclaimer: some people claim that the higher number of divorce initiations by women is accounted for by the women filing when they discover their respective husbands cheating, or if the husband is abusive, however the same argument applies the other way. Men aren't likely to just walk out because they're unhappy, a concept known as 'frivorce' (frivolous divorce).
