    I so love the positive articles when they show up here; the others remind me of signs raised at a local women’s rights march lately: “Why do we still have to demonstrate for this s***?” Human rights are only as good as the rights of that subgroup that has the fewest of them.

    Kudos (and gratitude) to these therapists! Makes one want to think about “psychological tourism,” the mental-health version of the “medical tourism” that takes people to Mexico or wherever for their surgeries and dental work. 🙂

    I would like to thank the therapists who engaged in this study. In my experience being a single mom has meant being the target of comparison and judgement, even fear from coupled friends that I am somehow going to try to cause problems for them, maybe by trying to steal their partner. While I appreciate that I no longer live with the constant paranoia and anxiety that they do, I most certainly am not having a great time, society is not kind to us, but, whatever, life goes on.

    On thing which annoys the hell out of me as a single woman is the notion that I put my career before relationships but at least I have a fantastic career. I don’t and just worked all my life in an office as a general worker. You never seem to hear of single women like me whom it just didn’t work out for the relationship bit and not having a good career.
    It’s assumed if you don’t have one you have the other. This isn’t real life and many like me have neither.
