The only reason folks attack her, is because it is "cool" to attack her.


No.

People attack her because her own self-esteem issues and mental issues caused her to seek out the fertility drugs and carry all of these kids to term as a single parent. No, when faced with caring for all of them, she's now like "Oh woe is me", and people simply are responding with "You made your own bed lady...lie in it"

And, it was after she'd already done the same for her first SIX kids, before the EIGHT! And, while on public support.

There is no father that ran out on her, she did this all solo, clinically.

Because it is "cool" to do-so.

By "cool" I mean, "the thing to do" or "going with the pack". I get upset too when I realize I am doing something because others are doing it. Hell I did that with Michael Jackson, when I was a kid I loved him and his music. But the "pack" decided that he touched little kids, and I went along with it. (Again, I will site the lack of evidence for both MJ's supposed pedophila AND this lady and her supposed porn.)

If you are saying this thread was created for:

Well, then if the thread was for that you would think the OP and plethora of other hatful posters would have said that. Actually, I think that is the first time that sentence/idea has been posted in this thread!

I used the example to point out that "solo" isn't the only way to achieve this outcome. True my mother doesn't have as many children...

Lastly, you HAVE to be able to see that this thread (and many many many of the replies) were meant to scar someone that will most likely never read the posts. Why fill them with lies/slander/etc?

PS: Maybe I am the only other human on the planet that makes bad decisions?

She should've looked at how hard it was to take care of 6 kids before she went on to take care of 14 by herself. Kids don't come cheap.
To raise a child cost on average about $250,000 or more. so times that by 14 and you would need 3,500,000.00. No wonder her house is fore closing. The kids that drew all over the walls devalued her house even more.


She needs to get her head straightened and figured out before she runs into more problems. Porn now there's an idea!!! Solo probably the best option to not risk into getting anymore children. There, she is making some changes as we speak, good on her. This will somehow inevitably lead into getting more children as the actor could no longer contain himself.

gods forbid this creature actually go to school to learn something that would keep her off her back (or knees) and get a REAL job....
Stupid females like her are held up in other countries as a prime example of why women shouldn't be allowed to do anything for themselves, why America is the 'great satan', and all those other terrible things. Perhaps we can send her overseas to find how repressed women get to live without choice, without voice, without a freaking thing. She had money and blew it, did she not? She's proven that she's at the far shallow end of the gene pool. Pity its the kids that will loose when their so called 'mother' finally self destructs.
As for the "why people attack her" end of the deal... she didn't just make one bad decision, she made several, on purpose, after getting the media's attention. She brought herself into the spotlight and then proceeded to make a complete fool of herself, knowing that her antics would only be grist for the rumor mills, supermarket rags, and hopefully a fast buck, of which she was obviously too stupid to take care of properly. Its not cool to attack an idiot for being an idiot. It is however open season on anybody who does it on purpose.

Honestly, I'm wondering who you are to judge her. She's trying to make money doing something that will make her happy, and you have to debase it?

At least she's trying. That's more than I can say about a lot of people...

The woman has a major mental illness. See it for what it is. Changing how her own face looks didn't do anything for a shattered self esteem, so having children was next, and that didn't work either.

Yet the posters here do nothing but come on here, attack her looks, and call her a leech, and you are worried about her effect on society?
Because calling her a whore solves what? It makes you feel better by belitting someone who is clearly at a mental disadvantage?

That she is the indicator?

First off, she has made the news because her story is so sensational, she is not an anyway shape or form, a role model or indicator of society. But the shallow responses on this thread, are.

I am glad that social services are there to help her children, who have no choice over their situation. That is doing what it is supposed to do which is support a family whose mother is incapable of working, due to her mental illness. Where someone falls through the cracks of society that doesn't stop a doctor from allowing someone so obviously incompetent,from having more children,that doesnt' recongize mental illness and provide therapy and treatment.

it's either 25% or 50% of the college grads can't find work at the present time.....
so, reckon what kind of chance a single mom with that many kids would have with that kind of competition???

but, I do realize that there is people working for companies that are making big bucks off of the student loan scam, and thus some have no choice but to keep the mantra up!!! Go to school.....get a degree......make the big bucks..... .....maybe....!!!! regardless of weather you do get that great job or not......you will be making me money and paying off that debt...even if you become disabled...since, well.......you have no choice!!! there is no such thing as bankruptcy with student loans.. and they tend to grow, get bigger and bigger as time goes by, because we will keep tacking on more fees and charges everytime you get laid off, sick, hurt, or for whatever reason end up missing a payment!!! you will start out owing just $20,000 or so, and end up owing us hundreds of thousands of dollars, and if we play our cards right, can just buy off a few more senators, maybe we can get that debt passed on, with a few more fees attached....to your kids!!!!!

ya, go to school, go into debt.....
why...it's the american way!!!

And the lable "sensational" only exists because of the common mindset in this thread. If "we" (Not me) didn't care about her, then she wouldn't do these things. If "we" (not me) didn't follow her stories, they would not make them.

--Rest is topic, and not directed at any one poster:

This person, and MANY other "scandals" are just on the planet to entertain. And, even though it "pisses you off" (No one specific, just a general comment) that IS entertainment. YOU WILL (Again no one specific) watch her, just so you (general) can hate on her.

The best part? My entertainment comes from watching people act like ants, as in being followers and what-not. Also adds to great philosophical discussions: "Do people not realize what they are doing?" I mean, I can see this as plain-as-day, but obviously the other folks think something entirely.

Otherwise this thread would not be here, Michael Jackson would still be alive, and Brittney Spears would still have her whole head!

PS: No one answered my question, this one isn't rhetorical:

Does it? If you do not know who your children are, doesn't that mean you're a bad parent? (I am not your child, neither is she, so why do you think we are?)

Nothing I posted was a lie or slander (which, to fit, would have to be untrue). Each of my claims regarding the facts of her case can be easily verified.

She had 6 other kids through fertilization, on her own, prior to then having the same procedure again, and having eight more, all while on disability. This is a fact.

THAT is why people frown on her, not because it is "cool" to do so. Personally, I think she should do the porn, so she's paying for her kids vs. the taxpayers.


But the "pack" decided that he touched little kids, and I went along with it. (Again, I will site the lack of evidence for both MJ's supposed pedophila AND this lady and her supposed porn.)


A grown man, living in an amusement park, who likes to have minors sleep with him in his bed (his own words by the way, in Bashir's interview if you care to see it), and multiple accusations, and you feel there is a "lack of evidence"? There are plenty of red flags there. No doubt he was a major talent and influence, but I also have little doubt he was at least guilty of some impropriety with some of those kids.

living in an amusement park


Excuse me? Is there something wrong with living in an amusement park? Maybe that was his childhood dream...hell, I've seen stranger homes. How about living in a giant boot?


I also have little doubt he was at least guilty of some impropriety with some of those kids.


There's a difference between bizarre quirks of personality and outright inappropriate behavior. Would you say the same of a father sleeping in bed with his daughter because she asked to?

Personally, you use circumstantial evidence to bolster your own opinion of what is "proper" in today's world. You think it's weird, and you use law to say "Yeah, I'm right." There is no proof of any inappropriate behavior, besides an admission that children bring him joy, or make him feel comfortable sleeping at night.

Big deal. So someone who sleeps with the lights on has a fetish for light bulbs?

This is what I'm seeing here. Correct me if I misunderstood you, please.

The red flag of living in an amusement park is more when you compare to a checklist of warning signs for predatory activity...

Almost every warning sign list contains to look out for homes of adults that have playground equipment but no children of their own...
CHECK

From parenting-child-development.com (more warning signs)....


Have a preoccupation with children

CHECK


May be overly nice, kind, friendly

CHECK


Use clever means to gain access to and cross boundaries with children

CHECK


Overly attentive to your child. Pedophiles have radar for kids who come from broken homes or whose dependency needs are not getting met. (Pedophiles gain a child's trust by giving them the attention he or she craves.)

CHECK (many of the kids at Neverland were from troubled homes)


Child predators often work in a position that allows them access to children. They can be teachers, coaches, scout leaders, church personnel, etc.

CHECK, as an entertainer, was easy access.


They are usually loners and have an inability to get their needs met from adult relationships.

CHECK, no adult relationships to speak of during the allegations, and even the "marriage" to Lisa Pressley afterwards was pretty much a sham by all accounts.


They may have families of their own who are unaware of their activities.

NO CHECK


Pedophiles will do everything in their power to earn your trust, so you'll assume that your child is safe in their care.

CHECK, like offer you new cars and other gifts, like he did for some parents.


Most pedophiles are men. It is estimated that only 4% of pedophiles are women. Don't let this prevent you from looking more closely at a woman who your child has reported feeling unsafe with. Female child predators are out there as the recent allegations against church worker, Melissa Huckaby, for the abduction, rape and murder of eight-year old Sandra Cantu attests.


So, on this checklist, only ONE doesn't apply. And you think I'm reaching???

I completely wanted to believe MJ, but after the documentary, and hearing his own comments, it only cemented that the public opinion is likely on the money in his case. Of course now, we'll never really know the truth...but I have to agree to disagree, as from his own comments, I think he did those things, but still didn't believe he did anything wrong in his own mind.

I know! I gave you several stars (one per post of course).

Please understand I am not typing to you specifically, 1) You're a moderator, and contrary to angry belief you guys tend to be a-okay. 2) You're intelligent, which is obvious just from your postings in this thread. Other threads as well, but not on topic!

When I mention the hateful posters, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out which ones I am talking about. I don't want to point fingers (in this post), since that is not the purpose of this thread (or site for that matter).

I am not contesting these facts. What I contest is:

C'mon

Do you seriously believe that is the reason for the hate filled posts?

Fine, how do you explain the Michael Jackson correlation? There were no taxpayers involved there! Also, I didn't realize other countries paid American taxes! (Or are you saying that all the hatefull comments are just from Americans?) What about the non-Americans? What's their excuse?

We know damn well why this is so sensational. Because people NEED someone to be better than. They NEED to watch people in trouble, and give their two-cents on the matter. I am no better (or worse), I just try to keep hatfull ignorant comments out of my change purse.

Sleeping in a bed with children is not the same as being attracted to, and having sexual relations with a child. So, not only am I saying there is a lack of evidence to pedophile claims, THERE IS A LACK OF EVIDENCE!

Red flags are not evidence, and they definatly do not give the green light for slander/libel.

(Edit, not that you (Gazrok) are guilty of either slander or libel. But you have to admit others in this thread are...PS both of those things are just as illegal as drugs, just sayin'.)

Actually, here's the reason for my view. I studied economic trends, demographics, and pay scales in various fields that I had a personal interest in. I am a pretty good troubleshooter with cars, trucks, and large engines, therefore I looked into the field of industrial maintenance as well as instrumentation. These two fields are nearly bereft of women workers, have a large deficit of jobs versus viable workers, and lucrative pay scales in many areas of the country, as well as lots of chances for advancement. When I graduate, I will have a job waiting for me, because I'm not learning some skill for a market already flooded and doesn't pay what I want, such as becoming a counselor, liberal arts, or what the heck ever. This country needs its working populace to be more educated in engineering, math, and science. That is the field that I have chosen. I did this not because it was easy, either. I'm only one of two women in my entire school taking this course. Its a challenge both on a physical and intellectual front, but I am loving every minute of it. By the way, I am a single mom of a disabled child, growing a garden to keep food on the table and working every minute I can to make ends meet. So, when I suggest going to school, sunshine, its not for the profit of others, but for the profit of the person I'm speaking of. One can only succeed in life by learning, but by choosing wisely what to learn, success is even greater.
