Someone on here wrote, 'If a woman chose a bad man to father her child, then that child should not suffer the consequences. But neither should the child be without a father. And since her getting knocked up is also a failure of her parents raising her, the responsibility for both father and child should fall back to her own father.' Interestingly, it is very rarely seen as the fault of the 'bad' man in the situation for being 'bad', but only the fault of the woman for chosing that man. Each side persists in blaming ONLY the other. A line is drawn, and the fault must never fall on the home side of that line. Furthermore, fault for the poor decisions of the individual woman, in this instance, is assigned to her male parent; almost as though she does not have any agency. Her agency is shifted, by men, onto yet another man. Do you want women to have agency, or not?
