Guy Blames His Ex For Not Taking Care Of Their Child, Gets Destroyed With Words

Parenting can definitely be a challenge, but some people find it more difficult than the other, especially when the child is still just a mere baby. From changing diapers to many sleepless nights, the trials and tribulations of being a parent can truly take a toll on any person. And that becomes even harder when you’re a single parent. Tired of raising his 18-month-old son, one single dad decided to share his troubles with Reddit, seeking legal advice on making the mother of his son take care of the child. He explained the situation, focusing on his ex-girlfriend and the choices they both made, passing judgment and calling the woman a “deadbeat mom”. Although he asked for legal advice, the man got more than he bargained for. Scroll down below to read the full story and don’t forget to tell us what you think! (Facebook cover image: julie corsi)

I'm a bloke, so saying this hopefully demonstrates I'm not a misogynistic sod. But isn't this the dire situation men have been leaving women in for centuries, as they walk away and quite literally leave her holding the baby, preferring to absolve themselves of any responsibility? Sounds like she had the brains to think this one through... while he did not. My only sympathy lies with the kid.

And she pays 125% of court ordered child support, much more than she needs to. There are many absent fathers doing their best to avoid paying any child support to single mothers, sometimes even despite court orders. Honestly, if the roles were reversed, I'm not sure the court would have ordered him to pay any child support at all or at least not as much because they weren't even engaged and she (if the roles were reversed he) doesn't have visitation or any other rights concerning the child. He seems very immature; he needs to learn he can't force her (or anyone) to care and change her life according to his wishes. He should be happy she didn't sue him for coerced birth, manipulation and harassment and that she agreed to pay any child support at all and very grateful she gave him the child he allegedly so much wanted and didn't get an abortion despite his wishes or give it up to someone else for adoption.

Have you ever heard a man say he has to "babysit" his own kids? I have. Many, many times. I've NEVER heard a woman say it. This is the mentality we're dealing with.

Her half of the seed is developed and stays in her body. It does not matter what she let you do it was your responsibility to add or not add your half to what was already there. You are directly responsible for bringing that child to life. If you don't want to be a daddy do not ejaculate in women.
