Women are choosing dogs over motherhood

More Women Choosing Dogs Over Motherhood

By Nicole M. King

If you think you’ve noticed an upsurge of tiny, furry friends being carried around in women’s purses lately, you’re right. It appears that more and more young women are foregoing marriage and motherhood, instead opting for pups as companions.

Reports the New York Post, “Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young U.S. women.”  “I’d rather have a dog over a kid,” one young women told the Post.  “It’s just less work and, honestly, I have more time to go out. You . . . don’t have to get a baby sitter.”

The Post highlights that this trend is growing as women delay marriage to ever-later years.  But in spite of such women’s claims of loving their carefree lives (and their furry friends), research reveals that grim outcomes wait for women who forego a family.

The New Research – Women alone – and depressed

Mental health experts have known for decades that women are more vulnerable to depression than men. But a newly published study suggests that women’s vulnerability to this mental malady depends a great deal on marital status.

Affiliated with the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago, the researchers embark on this new study aware that “women are twice as likely as men to experience depression and generalized anxiety disorder.”  Behind this gender disparity, the researchers describe “a variety of biological and social factors,” including “women’s hormonal fluctuations associated with menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth.”  But the Chicago scholars seek to identify more narrowly the social, economic, and personal characteristics that predict depression and anxiety among women.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
