Yeah, pretty much this sentiment. I can already think of a few outside instances where this wouldn't always work (Milkman syndrome, I think I'll call one, which can either happen in marriage or result in it.)AccursedTheory said:While I agree that men basically get screwed when it comes to things like this... no. Good God no.
This is basically the answer. If you don't want to have to pay child support for an unwanted pregnancy, or don;t want your kid scooped out by a doctor, where a spermicidal condom. or, you know, pick what you hump more carefully.meganmeave said:He kind of does. He just has to avoid putting his dick in things with receptive ovums.If a man doesn't want a child, he should be able to have control over what happens to his genetic material
Seriously, guys, if you think this is a big problem, put some sperm on ice and get yourself a vasectomy. This may sound blunt, but you really do ultimately have control over your own sperm. Unrealistic? Maybe. But so is the idea that you are going to be running around forcing women to abort because you got too drunk to put on a condom.
Believe it or not, halving a couple does not result in a child half-raised. A birthing contract? Making it illegal to have a child without two parents? Really? So, I do have to ask, is the intention here to legally claim that single parents are worthless to children, or that grandparents can't legally take care of children, or daycares? Because right there are three options that I have seen work, and have seen work better than my two parents in some cases, and the single parent one doesn't usually last forever. Either way, the choice to have a baby should be made beforehand by all parties available. As in, before you start using the world's most complicated syringe for one of its intended purposes. Doesn't mean you and your partner can't suffocate the snake, or see how fast the single engine piston can run, or ride the saddlehorn, but always remember, the most important rule of animal husbandry is planning.
Lastly, sure, when the bun is in the oven is a little late to decide what you're having for dinner. But keep in mind, the father isn't the one who has to carry the bugger for nine months (oddly enough, 10 is average here.) SO, I say if he really wants the kid, he should at least be busying himself helping out, cause if you want a bun with none of the hassles of baking, that's what bakeries are for. And for anyone accusing me of being Huxleyan, I'm talking about orphanages.
