    Lol! I was going to say, no veggies! At least at KFC you can get the coleslaw!

    Seriously though, that sounds delicious and like a lot of food. I probably couldn't eat all of that in one sitting. I can't tell you how many times I go to a restaurant and they plop down enough food to feed a 300-pound man in front of me, and it actually kind of makes me lose my appetite sometimes. That's probably why Americans are so fat!

    To be fair, it does come with coleslaw too.

    I agree that it's ridiculous though. Getting used to eating any where near that amount of food (and greasy, fatty food at that) simply isn't healthy. A "medium" drink at a fast food restaraunt today would've been a large ten years ago.

    It's really pretty disgusting when you take the time to think about it.

    I hear you, and I know it sounds stupid to complain about getting "too much" food. When they plop it down in front of me, I know I'm that this is going to be my dinner for the next two nights!

My father changed plenty of diapers, I've changed diapers every day I've been home for years, and all the fathers I know change diapers. Hell, I literally change two diapers every day before breakfast, since I get up with the kids and get them fed.
    In TV history, men in general and fathers specifically have been subjected to ridicule. So have women and mothers.

    The Simpson's portrayal of the father figure (ie Homer) as a childish idiot is nothing new.

    Making fathers look stupid on TV for comedy says a lot about expected gender roles.

    If Marge was portrayed as an idiot and a bad parent, that would be less acceptable and not as comedic. Marge would be a bad mom in a culture that thinks women should be self sacrificing for the sake of their children.

    If males were viewed as equally busy and intellectually capable of domestic duties and raising kids, then the American concept of traditional gender roles would probably break down. It would look more like northern Europe where men are not portrayed as idiot fathers, and its not shameful for him to be a stay at home dad. Women often pay their share on dates.

    So these guys are complaining about patriarchy on one hand, but I suspect it is what they really want. They want the American tradition, but they are frustrated by the unintended consequences of the system.

    I couldn't disagree more

    Marge is sometimes portrayed as an idiot and a bad parent. And there have been TV shows based on single dads raising children where the father was portrayed positively

    True, but it's pretty standard these days, unfortunately.

    It's not the Obama economy. Honestly Gath stop being such a puppet.


    I honestly suspect that my situation would be exactly the same right now if I had been like everyone else I see and never even tried at all.
    Well that sucks and sincerely, I'm sorry about that. Your hard work should pay off for you. Hopefully in time it will. Wouldn't you be eligible for some help with schooling? Why not go back to school for a while?
