Reflection on a man’s legal option to opt out of parenthood.
Ever wondered why States of the USA are so zealous about collecting child-support payments from fathers? It likely has something to do with the federal government’s offer of increased financial aid to States which prove to be the most violent debt-collecting thugs.
Agreeing that you are the father of a child without legal DNA proof can be a risky situation. Carnell Smith provides 12 good reasons why men should confirm paternity at birth, or before the child’s second birthday. Smith will be among the keynote speakers at the International Conference on Men’s Issues in June of 2014.
Currently, a woman’s right to choose puts her in a position to choose to use her children as pawns to manipulate and extort financial support from fathers, or alleged fathers, at will. Kiristina Hansen thinks it is time to put this to an end.
We are the ones putting an end to oppressive gender roles. So I suggest that is what we let them know, and that we point out to them exactly why they are nothing more than a continuation of the old paradigm, enforced with shame and bullets.

Oh yeah, 12 year old Johnny should be high fiving it because his 36 year old math teacher groomed him into satisfying her perverse sexual needs. Maybe his celebration will end when she comes back pregnant and sues him for child support, and wins because the same judicial system that convicted her for raping him now thinks he is liable for the child that rape produced.
Do you think that child support laws have the effect of making sure men meet their responsibilities for children that they father? Sometimes, perhaps. But we are betting you are completely unaware of how extreme these laws are, and who they actually hurt.
