We flew down to Texas this past weekend for a wedding. We got to the airport early enough for lunch before we flew out. no-angel was sitting in a highchair at the end of the table, my wife and I on either side, while we waited on our food. At one point, she reached to her left and squeezed my wife’s arm, then reached to the right and squeezed my arm. That’s a baby who appreciates being raised in a stable two-parent home! Even a little baby with a brain a third the size of that of an adult (it’s science) knows the value of a two-parent home. That is the sort of thing you have to miseducate out of a person.
Some people have been known to claim that being a straight white male is living life on the lowest difficulty setting there is. It just ain’t so. While I can see why you might think that if you are a straight white male mediocrity who has had anomalous success, an anecdote does not empirical findings make. Other things matter more.
