Actually, don't know where the gutter thing comes from, but apparently Karen Allow, who is unmarried, has gotten a lot of flak from people about single parenthood:
I have found myself in a very profound life-changing situation this year.I think Karen's a good mom. And I don't know if she has plans to marry or will stay single to raise her family. I think marriage is best for a family, and I know Karen's on the market. So it's going to be alright. And while I doubt that I'd have posted pictures like that to Twitpic (of my booty or my baby nursing), I think she's right to tell her idiot critics to STFU.
As a divorced mother of two, facing single parenthood with a newborn baby has never frightened me. If anything, it encouraged me to hold my head up high and work harder.
There still seems to be this icky stigma about single parents that I’m getting from my online world. And it’s manifested into a burning curiosity to know more about her father to the point of demanding and pushing the issue on every video I post.
I owe no explanation. My Soul is and will continue to remain intact. The only person I owe anything to is LuLu and that time will come soon enough… Trust me.
Anyway, note to readers: It's a brave new world online. I'm going to be writing about it, with all the fleshy and messy contradictions and outrage. It's what I do. Read my blog if you want, but the same folks who say "get your mind out of the gutter" are probably not so thrilled that Karen Alloy's a single mom. (And note that Opus is "a single mother of 6 kids ages 21 years to 2 years," which is both awesome and interesting, given the context). I love all of my women visitors, like MacGinn and Opus #6. But guys and dolls blog differently. Sometimes it's best to go with the flow.
And with that, folks should head over to Theo Spark's!
