    Sorry, I don't get it.. Some random dude just fulfilled the stereotype, bar walking, beer drinking, sports watching = lack of intelligence...
    Child neglect.... Shouldn't happen. But does happen.
    No need in such case to make a fuzz out of it, since nothing happened at all.
    Where is the quote from?

    That is the interesting thing, what you just said. These things happen so often that people read about instances of neglect and don't bat an eye anymore. It's become background noise.

    five Coronas and one Bud Light
    Apart from no skill in parenting he obviously totally lack a taste in beer.
    I would expect Guantano's new torture tactic would be playing loud country music and force the victims to drink Bud.
    The best thing about Kremlin posters is that as soon as you voice something they have to mention the US.
    Their awe and love for the US is truly great and I commend them for their love of their fellow men.

    Actually, the way the story reads, he isn't the kids father.

    NBCMiami reports 41-year-old James R. Irvine's girlfriend left him in charge of her child while she was at work over the weekend, but was unable to reach him after calling him several times.
    So the story is: Stupid Mom leaves kid with deadbeat boyfriend who shirked his responsibility.

    Onto the actual topic:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...es-online.html

    Mother Yasmin Chaudhry drowned her one year old baby daughter in a bucket live on Skype while her boyfriend watched from Britain.
    I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote.
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light, but there was Brimstone in his throat.
    He'd show me the way, according to him, in return for my personal check.
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and lit another cigarette.

    I'd actually split the blame between the mother and boyfriend, he may of been all for looking after the child only for his friends to ask him out to the pub. It's morally reprehensible but the mother for being so attached to the child she could of had someone else/ hired a babysitter.

    But for anecdotal evidence time! My grandmother left my mother alone with her brother on nights to go drinking and they entered the care system at age 4.

    I still see no reason for this thread to be open however, the original intention was to bait a reaction against male partners and changed slightly when the op edited the body of message to defend his/ her angle and opened the definition a little.

    Actually that was never the intention, but I would argue that the thread should be closed due to trolling/derailment.

    Well actually, i'd agure it was. You made a topic with a provocative title listing an article and attempted to bash male figures in relationships...

    But yes, i'd like to see your thread shut for trolling.

    Would tidy it up.

    I gave it a try, it didn't work.

    Next time try and post relevant stuff or be helpful to the thread if possible.

    Closed.
