He went back to his mom's today. I'll probably set everything out the night before he comes over next time so that we can put the tree up and decorate it together. Thank you for your genuine interest. I really appreciate it. I'm obviously being sarcastic in response to your trolling. Go choke on a dick.

That's definitely an interesting concept that I've never considered. Very New World Order / Thousand Points Of Light / Illuminati of you LOL. But, the fact is, we CAN support ALL of the people on this planet, we are just mis-managing our resources.

You see, this is the dilemma to which I was referring. A man and a woman get pregnant. If the woman decides to opt out, she can get an abortion. If the man decides to opt out, he gets stuck with a lifetime of monetary enslavement. Even if he terminates his parental rights to the child, he is still on the hook for child support.

Freeze your sperm for when you're ready to be a parent and get a vasectomy. That's probably the best plan that I've heard yet. Good lookin' out homie

GTFOH. I've never laid a hand on a woman in a bad way in my life, but if a bitch was trying to take my life, you bet your ass she'd catch these hands. If you let political correctness override common sense survival, then you're a dumbass and deserve whatever you get.

Nice job putting words in my mouth. If you're gonna hate, at least have a little self respect and don't half-ass it.

Right. So you don't think he should be alloted the same legal options as the child's mother? If the roles were reversed, she could have aborted it and that would be the end of the discussion. Trust me, I know that what I'm advocating sounds sh!tty, but if we want fair practices under the law and for the law to apply equally to everyone, then we should allot men the same legal right that women have to opt out of parenthood.

Either ban voluntary abortions or give fathers the legal right to opt out. That's the only way to make things fair under the law.

Right now, if a father wants to opt out, the choices are either to force the mother to get an abortion, or a lifetime of monetary payments against his will. Maybe we could save some lives by reducing abortions if we have another option? I guess that putting the child up for adoption is also another way to go.
