The percentage of kids born out of wedlock has skyrocketed. If you’re lower class and uneducated, you’re probably worse off than you’ve ever been before. Abuse (physical, emotional, substance) is common and tolerated.

In his extensive research on the sexual habits of young Americans, Regnerus found that liberals are pragmatic about sex and marriage while conservatives are more idealistic.

Blues are more likely than reds to pursue higher education.

The longer I do this, the more I become convinced that there isn’t too much “right” and “wrong” in the world, just a lot of perspectives that are somewhat valid on their own merits.

You can choose sides, but you’d be foolish to deny that the other side has a point, whether you like it or not.

The liberal/conservative divide has reared its ugly head in the culture wars as well. Well, if you’re upper class and educated, you’re probably better off than you’ve ever been before.

You know, because all liberal vegetarian atheist feminists should be wearing flannel and have shaved heads.
