The only proper response from a man when his lover tells him she’s pregnant is: “Okay, do you want to do it? Because if you do, I’m right here.” Any man who says, “What are we going to do about it?” sounds like a jerk incapable of leadership or support. Any woman who hears a man say that is going to want to spontaneously abort as soon as she hears it.
It’s unfair, but heterosexual relations are unfair, and a man’s responsibility should always be up front: “If you ever get pregnant, I will stand up and meet my responsibilities, period.” A woman has to know that, because otherwise she will be hesitant to go through with it. But even though a man has to be willing to follow through just as described, if the woman does want to abort, he has to let her do that, too. Like I said, unfair. Of course, straight couples where the woman goes ahead and has an abortion frequently break up, but, that’s another issue.
Re: The first graf: What? Incapable of leadership??? Life isn’t a waltz and relationships don’t have “leaders.” In other words, I would probably say, “What are we going to do about it?” Because, frankly, I ain’t ready for kids, and I don’t want to be “right here” for the next 25 years, or however the hell long dependency lasts these days.
Re: The second: straight couples who go ahead and have the child frequently break up, too. It’s called divorce, and in America it happens to roughly 50% of all marriages.
But hell, at least Sully’s minions are posting bullshit and passing it off as profundity with the same level of frequency as The Blog Master does. It wouldn’t be the Daily Dish any other way.
