A COMMENT AT PANDAGON in response to a piece on single mothers by Amanda Marcotte sparked outrage over at Trish Wilson's Blog -- and with good reason. It's time people got past misusing statistics to tell women that if they are raising children alone, they are setting their kids up for poverty, substance abuse, and a life of violent crime. We should be beyond that, and we should be beyond telling women who are beaten by the men who promised to love them that they "made bad choices."

Trish is clearly well-versed in this issue, and she debunks the "fathers are essential" argument with both passion and skill. Take a look.
