    As a divorced dad who is also a feminist, a big enthusiastic fuck you to Steve on the end of that video. One of the hardest things about divorce was and continues to be all the assumptions and stereotypes other people brought to the table and those I had internalized myself. From TV shows and moves to jokes about loser single dads in lonely apartments unable to see their kids. Loosing our home and having to take jobs that wouldn’t let me have equal custody to keep meeting child support payments are real fucking terrors that I live with.

      Doesn’t that study actually only show that Christian and Muslim upbringings are inversely correlated with altruism? One study does not show causation. And the samples of other religions were too small to generate conclusions about them. Grouping them with Christian and Muslim seems to me to be problematic considering how many more of them there are than non-Christian/Muslims in the sample.
