    I think what I'm pointing out is that your viewpoint is not as you recognise a "popular" or common one which is why your statement of what makes a "self-respecting man" so wrong.

    Of course there are positives - my partner also makes sacrifices for me. Mutual respect is important to me and that means we negotiate between ourselves. We also both agree to make self-sacrifices for our daughter which is what being a parent is all about.

    Some of you need to stop feeding the Tigger.

    He is what he is. Whatever that is.

    There's no reasoning, changing, or even hoping to understand his point of view.

    He's a true island. You'll just keep walking around in circles and never get anywhere.

    Let him post, then shake your head, shudder at the idea he might reproduce, then move along.

    Throw him a piece of popcorn every now and then, but for god's sake don't waste time cooking him nutritious meals.

    I have no interest or agenda in changing him.

    I don't see how accepting that the rest of the world is Wrong, and I'm one of the few people with the cahones to do things the right way and not be ashamed to comment on it can be construed as anything other than "self-respecting".

    Self-respecting doesn't mean having an ostrich mentality!

    Like many who have faced pain and rejection, he has created his own world to escape into...and described it quite clearly on the forum.

    It doesnt matter that (almost) no one else would want to follow him into that world...my concern is for a child that might be brought into that 'world' without any choice.

    A child may change him in ways that none of us, including him, can predict. I would unfortunately, not be especially hopeful.

    See, many of us share these basic human concerns. I too have concerns for children born to liberals. There are very few ways to save these children.
