Your post in this thread sounds like something out of the Victorian era. Getting a girl knocked up shouldn’t ruin a promising young man’s life, is that what you’re saying?
So because it’s difficult, he shouldn’t even try?
This 18yo guy has a moral responsibility to help the 18yo girl’s life be less ruined than it would be if he just took off and gave her no financial assistance at all. Not to mention a responsibility to the kid, financially and emotionally.
Right; we can’t let these little bitches ruin our son’s lives. Especially the ones who are told “Put out or I’ll hurt you.” Thieving sluts.
Which impacts would be made by someone else’s son. You mean to tell me that if your teenage daughter got pregnant, you wouldn’t wonder who gave him so much freedom and taught him so little responsibility? You’d agree with him that his life shouldn’t be impacted by paying to support your grandchild?
Well, good for him.
I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt that if your son got someone pregnant, you wouldn’t object to his trying to support the child and mother. But you seem to be way too okay with this “too bad, so sad” attitude.
Truthfully, I had to wait until my hands stopped shaking in order to post this. I am sick and tired of the attitude that males cannot, and should not be expected to, control their sexual urges, that what happens, happens, be it rape, teenage pregnancy, infidelity, whatever, and women simply have to batten down the hatches.
If a man, of any age, takes action that results in a pregnancy, that is not a mistake that he can walk away from. Teenage guys need to be taught about sexual responsibility. Which includes abstinence. They need to be monitored by their parents just as much as girls do, not sent blithely on their way to screw around to their heart’s content, with the failsafe that “He’ll only have to pay until he’s 18.”
So the teen mom is “stuck” with the baby, or at least the trauma and financial burden of abortion or adopting out. She still didn’t get herself pregnant. It happened because someone couldn’t keep it in his pants, or at least use a condom. Regardless of what the law says, if he walks away from the results of that lapse, he is a scumbag.
(No, I am not calling you a scumbag.)
