Not prepared to have a kid? Dont have one. Usually people make that decision beforehand. So...deal with it. Life isn't fair sometimes. My older brother abandoned his son and his family for drugs and jail time and he owes a **** ton of money for child support. I recommend not going that route.

I don't do marriage and kids. I just don't. Now if I've got a friend who's got kids and is going through some **** and he or she want me to babysit their kids for a bit and they throw me some dinner for it or something like that, then yeah, I'll watch your kids because being a parent is a full time job of its own....but me myself? I don't do marriage and kids.

I really don't even date or believe in the idea of a romantic love anymore, I've totally obliterated all of that false hope from myself and make it a point to not subscribe to it again. I don't think anybody plans to have kids, at least not unless they're highly religious, young, and inexperienced in life. It's just one of those things that happens and people try to deal with it, similarly to the opposite of having a kid: Death, and losing someone you love.

I don't go to weddings, even for friends, because I'm single, but also because to me they're just multicolored funerals and wakes. Just like I kind of have to bite my tongue when someone tells me they're expecting a kid because I want to say: "I'm sorry..." for the inevitable death of their freedom and the struggle to come, but for some damn reason the expected social response is a trite and confusing: "...Congratulations!" So, I just go with what's expected, because I'm not exactly Mr. Socialite anymore than I am Daddy Warmbucks.

I'm an introverted, misanthropic, artist and hobby academic...so, I don't really see how the idea of marriage and kids in the modern social senses of the acts could possibly end well for me, so I just avoid it like the plague, basically. I also very rarely touch this subject because of how sensitive people get over it these days, and because I don't really fit into a cookie cutter format of responses for it I usually end up like this in my own head on the subject:

I actually do think itís reasonable for the man to be able to say I want this baby aborted. If he does the state should take over child support if the woman and man agree to be sterilized.

Less people = mo better
If I could get a check for getting a snip then I'd show up to the hospital with a plate of chocolate chip cookies for all the sexy nurses.

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.

Weirdest overpopulation denial I’ve ever seen.
