...and then the sperm banks will be shut down all together...
Easy for me to say but I would like to see more men demanding sole physical and legal custody in cases like this. Simply walk into court and say "your honor, I am looking forward to my role as parent to this child. The mother and her...friend are relieved of all responsibilities."Few men would be able to overcome the prejudice in favor of women as custodial parents but the idea of treating men as wallets would encounter some resistance.It would benefit men, honest women and especially children if the family courts began addressing custody determinations on actual merit rather than on illegal notions of chivalry, misguided attempts to redress imaginary past inequities and the following of political fashions. A man should walk into a custody hearing with his clean credit report, his bank statements, his clean police record, his employment history etc. and ask for a comparison with the mother's. The fact that he is able to earn a living and be a responsible citizen should not require him to start writing monthly checks to someone who is not but to begin enjoying the miracle of fatherhood.Single fathers should be nearly as common as single mothers but the phenomenon is so rare as to be baffling to some people when they do encounter it (restaurant hostess looks around..."is your wife parking the car?". I think it is time to openly steal a feminist slogan and rework it for our own needs:A single father must work twice as hard as a single mother to be considered half as good. Fortunately, this is not difficult.
Well, when you have a wife who's being represented by an attorney who is a british harpie, PRO BONO.... they can easily drain you financially. The longer they drag out the divorce, they kill two birds with one stone.. they buy time to bolster credibility for her while slaying you with lawyers fees to counter every stupid little motion they file for. Believe me, it is skewed.
I agree. Let the sperm dry up. The whole industry disgusts me, considering that there are so many children waiting to be adopted. I also think single parents or a gay/lesbian couple should only be allowed to adopt children of their own gender. Boys need male role models! After the time boys reach the age of about 6, mothers don't have anything to offer them about becoming a man. On the contrary, most single mothers would rather have their sons become "manginas".
I don't think same sex couple should be able to adopt at all. I think society needs to come the realization that both the masculine and the feminine are needed to turn out a well balanced adult.

I think society needs to come the realization that both the masculine and the feminine are needed to turn out a well balanced adult. The issue is not masculine vs. feminine. That is related to the concept of gender, which is purported to be a social construct. The concept of gender was invented by radical feminists in an attempt to delink biology (male/female) with mannerisms (masculine/feminine). A lesbian or gay couple might use your very logic and say, "My partner is the butch one, I'm the femme one. See? We have the required masculine/feminine balance."
