So, I posted an answer to this question, which has now been closed, and when I logged on today, I saw that my answer was, for some reason, deleted. Users with the required rep can see the language.
The comment left by was "This doesn't provide useful, practical guidance, but rather propagates an unhealthy attitude towards others (see V2's comment)." I strongly disagree.
V2Blast also left this comment:
The issue isn't necessarily that society sees these things as bad/reasons to look down on someone. Rather, the issue is that your answer is implying those things are bad/reasons for the querent to look down on someone. That is to say, you're not commenting on/criticizing society unfairly portraying them as such; you're essentially saying "don't care what they think now, because they might end up as a single mother or a janitor [which is a bad thing]". I'd suggest editing your answer to avoid such an implication if that's not your intent.
I believe that my answer contains very useful, practical guidance, and that it promotes a much more healthy attitude towards others than the OP's current, overly attached attitude, even if it's sort of cynical. I've edited my post to make my point about investment someone more apparent, so can my post please be undeleted?
