A Lack of Rights for Men – A Mother Fights Back
A Voice for Men, source of some good reads and some slightly questionable content, recently put up an article by Beth Lang, about her son, who “won” a paternity test, proving that he recently fathered a child. Problem was, according to Lang, “he was tricked into fathering by a dishonest young woman”, and winning the paternity test meant he now needed “to pay child support for a child he did not want and did not agree to have”.
I don’t mean to post a downer article, especially since we lured you to this site on the premise that we’d be covering fun, 24th century humanoid parenting issues. But I think that as a father, this is an interesting read. Plus, as a man and a father, I’m concerned with father’s rights, of which, as Lang notes, only sparsely exist.
I won’t belabor the points of Lang’s article – but I urge you to give it a read. Some of it is a little over-the-top, but I think that it covers some thought-provoking topics. The most important of which, is, of course, that if you don’t intend to have a child, think about what you’re getting yourself into.
