1. Your children grow up feeling, 'I hate who I am.'

3. Bad-mouthing undermines dad's motivation to invest money and time in the bank of love and to become responible in response to the hope for love.”

The Myth of Male Power Quotes
“Are women inherently less warlike than men? Throughout history, women in power have used a rationale similar to men’s to send men to death with similar frequency and in similar numbers.
For example, the drink Bloody Mary was named after Mary Tudor (Queen Mary I), who burned 300 Protestants at the stake; when Henry VIII’s daughter, Elizabeth I, ascended to the throne, she mercilessly raped, burned, and pillaged Ireland at a time when Ireland was called the Isle of Saints and Scholars.
