I can't imagine being a single parent. It is difficult having 2 kids, with a great wife, 2 good incomes, 2 sets of grand-parents, and health
insurance! If it is this difficult for us, it is beyond imagination for those with nobody to help them.
Still hard to be empathetic though, because it takes a whole 5 seconds at the beginning of sex, or 1/2 second at the end of sex to avoid getting
pregnant on the man's side. And it takes a whopping 1 second per day for a female to pop a pill to avoid getting pregnant. If someone does get
pregnant, it is ridiculous to claim it "was an accident." This isn't the middle ages, people know exactly what gets them pregnant, and it is very
easy to have just as much fun and still avoid the conception. That is why I have no empathy for father's that complain when they have to pay child
support, and that, combined with the relative ease of abortions is why I have no empathy for women complaining because they don't get their child
Not to brag, but out of many 1000s of *cough* experiences
, I have yet to have any "accidents." My wife and I don't use birth control of any
type, and we have two intentional children, and we have never had any accidents nor abortions.
It is ridiculous to me that people can act so
irresponsibly and then blame someone else? And this is my wife, we'd be fine with another child, there are no drastic repercussions, we trust each
other, we aren't going anywhere, and we can afford to feed and cloth them. Even with those circumstances, we are still able to be careful, so surely
someone in dire straits, during a random encounter, can manage to be careful?
Gotta go back to work now, this issue starts getting me angry.
I worked in child support enforcement for years, my wife still works there. I
have friends and family working in school systems, and in child protective services, and this whole dam subject just makes me want to drive around
doling out smacks back to reality.
