    Default Something troubling about MySpace...

    Well, there are a few options missing.

    Options for Marital Status
    • Swinger
    • In a Relationship
    • Single
    • Married
    • Divorced


    As far as I'm concerned, shouldn't they have widowed in there, as well?

    Options for Orientation
    • Bi
    • Gay/Lesbian
    • Straight
    • Not Sure
    • No Answer


    Here, they are missing asexual.

    And lastly:

    Options for Children
    • I don't want kids
    • Someday
    • Undecided
    • Love kids, but not for me
    • Proud parent
    • No answer


    Particularly troubling is proud parent, as isn't is possible to be a parent, but not be proud of it? Furthermore, if your children happen to be dead, then wouldn't you cease to be a parent?

    Oh gee. You think of everything!

    They need you on staff, surely.

    It happens far more than it should.

    This is the only one I disagree with. Once you're a parent, you're a parent. It doesn't matter who dies and who lives... the act of being a parent (as well as being a child) brands you for life. It changes you. If your kid lives, you are their parent. If your kid dies, you agonize forever afterwards as their parent, wishing for what might have been and even wishing you could trade places with them. If they disown you, you are still their parent. They can't escape and neither can you; you're bound forever.

    I don't want to speak for other parents, but that's what my experience has been... and I think it's pretty typical.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    From parents I have known whose children have died, yes.
