    I think that's just horrible, especially when your daughter would need the support of her family more than ever, and love for your child should be unconditional, but that's just me.

    What juries should do and what they actually do are two different things.

    And why do you keep saying "sire?" LOL! I've only ever heard someone refer to a father like that in old movies or books.
    There is a very big difference between a "father" and some bloke who manages to knock up his girlfriend or some woman whom he rapes. I advise you to learn it.

    And maybe it's attitudes like that, when presented to a judge, would make him lean more towards giving custody to a woman like me than a man like you.

    Yes, but then again... Well, like you said: "That's just you."

    GTG now.

    And now there is proof that jerks are not limited to one gender or the other.

    But even a skeptic like me must credit a DNA exclusion rate of 20 percent that remained constant over several years when conducted by FBI labs. This is especially true when 20 percent more were found to be questionable.

    It is impossible to be a father via rape. Being a father ain't about sperm cells.

    Re: If a man fathers a child through rape, should he have visitation or custody right

    Do you honestly believe that this happens a lot of the time?

    This also from your link:

    "First, the category of 'false accusations' does not distinguish between accusers who lie and those who are honestly mistaken. Nor does it indicate that a rape did not occur, merely that the specific accused is innocent. Thus, there is a drive by voices for reform, like the Innocence Institute, to improve eyewitness identification techniques within police departments. For example, the Innocence Institute suggests "Police should use a 'double-blind' photo identification procedure where someone other than the investigator -- who does not know who the suspect is -- constructs photo arrays with non-suspects as fillers to reduce suggestiveness."
    Second, even if false accusations are as common as 1-in-4, that means 75 percent of reports are probably accurate and, so, all accusations deserve a thorough and professional investigation. Third, the 1-in-4 figure has 'fuzzy' aspects that could influence the results. For example, Neufeld and Scheck mention only sexual assault cases that were "referred to the FBI where results could be obtained." It is not clear what percentage of all reported assaults are represented by those cases. As well, the terms 'rape' and 'sexual assault' are often used interchangeably, especially when comparing studies, and it is not clear that they are always synonyms for each other."

    You guys can be so nit-picky. I was referring to the word "sire" itself, not the philosophical meaning of father.
