It does, actually. But ok. I understand your sentiment, so for the sake of argument let's say I concede that. Then by the same token, neither does carrying to term and giving birth make one a mother. I'm sure your friendly neighborhood social worker could cite a few million examples for you.Yes, they do, but only once they become fathers. A teaspoon of genetic material does not make them so.
How is a man demanding the right to be a father to his child "imposing himself on a woman"? How is shared custody "stealing" "her" child?Yes, it is. And I am opposed to the practice. The fact that women can force men into fatherhood is an abomination that should be eradicated with all possible vigor-- but it is not a justification to allow a man to impose himself upon a woman and in effect steal her child simply by virtue of the circumstances of the child's conception.
Well that's pretty funny, coming from you. Aren't you the person who just said that a female rapist should have more of an innate right to parent a child than the child's father, a normal man?What you are arguing here is the reason that courts in our country would even have to consider such a ridiculous and morally abhorrent notion as rapists having parental rights to the products of their crimes.
