As if you're any better.
I am not. I fully acknowledge that I look at things from a standpoint of intellectualism. It is hard not to. I was raised in that culture, and for the most part I continue to surround myself with people who are like minded (as one tends to do with any belief system).
I have some experience though. My mom has always made far less than my dad, and they are divorced. I see the struggles it takes for a single parent to make a living. Luckily she has had continual support, even beyond the terms of the divorce, but it sucks and I understand how hard it is for some people, especially women, and especially women who have given up the better part of their years to raising a family on their own.
I do want to change my perspective and understand different viewpoints better, and that is one of the main reason I went back to school.
