Animal researchers are finding that animals normally raised by a mother and a father get skewed neural development when they are reared without the father.
Meanwhile, research continues to show that girls raised without their biological father tend to mature quicker and are more likely to be promiscuous. And the pathologies of illegitimacy* and single parenthood abound.
Huh. Who would have thought that some old, out-of-touch white guys who probably don’t even read Sunstone would have known what they were talking about?
OK, OK. We’ll compromise. I’ll admit the Prophets might be on to something, but only to the extent that it doesn’t require mne to change my behavior or to take positions that might be unpopular with my cool friends.
*Illegitimacy is a perfectly fine word, but apparently its unpopular with those who dislike that their might be a stigma attached to bad behavior. Those people may replace illegitimacy with any euphemism they like, out-of-wedlock, natural children, marriage-capable, whatever.
