Remember to keep your distance Think hard before you judge people Context needed over Sydney siege Police shouldn't have apologised Airport costs hammer ratepayers Argument to merge doesn't stack up Praise and support for former MP's actions Social housing a poor result Speed signs add to confusion Top-down model doomed to fail

OPINION: Tracey Steel (Letters, Jan 18) is correct in pointing out the obvious - that women don't have to be married to have children.

One of the biggest contributors to our present social mess has been the birth of children to women who are either unmarried or else living in sin with a man.

Now we're expected to agree that this is perfectly normal and proper, even if single mothers have decided to be kept by the taxpayers indefinitely as a valid lifestyle choice, or if children in de facto families are insecure and uncertain all round, as many are.
