Well, I figured if the OP could deviate from the topic and throw in some pseudo-psychological blathering, it must be appropriate for the rest of us do to the same.

I love the term bloviating obfuscation but don't get to use it much. I was so very pleased it could be used in this context.

I have to ask this: What is a "traditional family" these days. There seem to be more "blended families", single parent, and grandparents/family members raising kids these days than traditional ones.

I find the OP's opinions on the actual topic puzzling, considering that she claims to be 17 y/o and still living at home with a completely dysfunctional family. Her pronouncements of being the only normal member of the family and being the glue that holds everyone together seem eerily reminiscent of another poster who has been banned for her lies and wild flights of fancy. The grammar, syntax and walls of text also appear to be similar, if not downright exact.

OP is obviously intelligent, but appears to have a sad need to be right in every and all situations. Those traits are not desirable when one is looking to debate, but they're certainly endemic to those who wish to appear superior to their fellows.

I'd say her character flaws are most likely related to her horrific upbringing, and she would have been better off had she been brought up by loving, same sex parents than the mismatched, damaged biological ones who actually raised her. A mentally healthy single parent would have also been preferable to a mentally ill pair.
Speed, does it make me a bad person that I snickered?

I use the term traditional to apply to those families headed by a heterosexual. It IMO encompasses one parent househould and children raised by nonbiological step parents as well.
It beats typing out Homosexual and Heterosexual every time you post something.
Just a term not meaning to imply that is preferred . Shalom

Yes, yes it does. This is TOTES serious psychoanalysis!

Never mind that I have no training or advanced education in the subject. But then, neither does the OP, so I guess we're on an even playing field.

To me a traditional family is the biological parents and children, not blended, single, or other family raising the children.

Gee I don't know about all this, but the OP has given a wall of text twice I believe and has worn out her thesaurus in the process.

I'd really like to know what the true angle of the OPs original thread was....I suspect I know but would be nice to hear it from the horses mouth, so to speak.

I think in short the OP is opposed, reason being "members of a species need other members of the species", I guess what that is supposed to mean is that boys need Dads to show them how to scratch their nuts and enjoys sports. Obviously girls need mothers to learn to wear heels and do house work........ Something to that effect *eye roll*
