Memo to the Criminal Minds writing staff

Dear Writers:

I kind of love Criminal Minds. Derek Morgan is adorbs, Dr. Reed annoyingly/lovably nerdy, and Penelope Garcia is funny, brilliant, and nobody comments on the fact that she's not a size two. Love. Her.

However: could we please STOP blaming mothers for the actions of serial killers? Because, really, LOTS of kids are abused - by fathers AND mothers, alas - and the vast, overwhelming majority of them do NOT become serial killers. So, really, lay off the Mean Mommy Made Him a Bad Man story line, please.

Thank you.
