Are you saying that men have no repsonsibility regarding who THEY share their bed with? It seems you are putting all of the repsonsibility on the female. Do you not think a man has a repsonsibility to a child he created? Why should it just be the female? Are you saying, oh, poor, man, you were duped into having sex, no, forced into having sex, and now this vixen female is out to get you for all you are worth? C'mon! Men need to accept the burden of responsibility for a child as the last time I checked it takes 2 to tango, and the responsibility of care is disproportionately left to the woman, with dead-beat dads who will not support their own offspring. Some dads are great and accept their part of the responsibility, but so many times it is the woman left on her own to fend and the man just walks away.
I fail to see how any of this has anything to do with giving women the vote, for example. This sort of thing has been going on for ages, it is just more out in the open now. SOCIETY (not just men or just women) need to take responsibiltiy for the way things are now. To blame it on the empowerment of women is pretty lame and is just scapegoating, imho. Yeah, things suck in many ways, and it is so easy to pin the tail on any convenient donkey, instead of digging down deep to find the real cause/answer.
I agree that women struggled to get equality. Anything worth having is worth struggling for.
If you think about it, the idea of a woman trapping a man into bed so she can collect child support is pretty ludicrous. First of all, it is not that much money - it costs more to raise a child than what is given in child support. Secondly, having children is kind of antithetic to having freedom and power over one's life, unless one is at the right time in one's life. Single moms, working 2 jobs, with 5 kids, and no help - oh yeah, baby, that is the life all us women want!! And we are gonna go and trap a man just to make that dream come true!
I still say, only those who feel powerless within themselves are threatened by the equality of others.
