There’s too many factors to consider, and I don’t think one sex is the “faulter factor. ” Seeing how your a cop, what would you say is the biggest factor in the break down of families today? Its not just limitted to poverty, and drug abuse.. would you say its becoming normal/acceptable for people to have kids wo marriage & irresponsible… is okay? I agree, both sexes are at fault, and the kid shouldn’t pay for their lack of common sense; when it comes to pregnancy prevention.
Screw socially responsible, how about just being personally responsible and the social part will then take care of itself.. oh wait I should ask just which “social” are you talking about when I like see at all the rubber stamped foreign faces masquerading as citizens I have to ask this question, is it the local foreign gang bangers down the street or the red and blue banana gang on the other block , or the white hooded robed guys a few blocks away from them I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture. I agree.
A lot of men these days seem to be looking for just a woman on their arm, to show off, to have sex with, marry just for the sake of marrying, without having an ounce of conviction. They do not understand that getting married and having a family is hard work, requiring a lot of personal sacrifice. I think part of the problem is that they were raised by a generation of “parents” that allowed them too much liberties. What has resulted is a new generation of young men AND women who treat relationships too frivolously.
Rather than staying with one person and working on a long-lasting relationship built on trust and care, they grow restless and leave, just because of a few bad arguments or mistrust. People put too much emphasis on romantic love—-you see it in the movies, in songs, etc. Sure romantic love is nice, but that often fades after the first few years. Love based on mutual care and trust is much more important. But a lot of “adults” these days are more like little kids….. hey are indulgent, lazy, and stubbornly rebellious and restless. I agree with the first part of the statement, about their being too many single moms. But I think the second part lacks foundation. I don’t think it lacks foundation in the fact that American men aren’t socially responsible, but rather that that fact leads to broken homes. Generally in a divorce the children are used as a bargaining chip, the mothers fight for, and generally receive custody and use visits as a weapon against their ex-spouse.
At whom they are angry. This carries much more weight in the argument than the responsibility of american men. In the case of women becoming pregnant out of wedlock, it is not solely the man’s responsibility to practice safe sex and use contraceptives. I very much doubt there are many men who plan to impregnate and woman, and then leave. Considering that it’s the woman who would actually be carrying the child, I would say that it is their responsibility to protect their own bodies more than it is the man’s.
