i feel like i'm having deja vu and i've never even been to this site before. anyway, i was trying to respond to someone about calling me a hypocrite because i said taking away a child from a "feminist" mother is extreme. hillary clinton is a feminist...should chelsea have been taken away from her? i thought it was absurd to say. there are all types of women out in the world and all types of mothers. no two are the same.
as far as giving a young, naive girl advice on how to protect herself and her child from a potentially hazardous situation with the biological father being a drug addict...i see nothing wrong with giving her legal information that is already available to her. i'm happy to tell ANY mother in a CRISIS PREGNANCY what she can do. walk a day in a woman's shoes who is pregnant and in a crisis situation and then you can talk crap to me. oh but i doubt one person in here has! i've walked down that road. i could have aborted. i could have given up when the bio dad was stalking me, pointed a gun at my head, man handled me, etc. i had to find out for myself all of the legal shit that was available to me and i will tell people what they can do because I'VE BEEN THERE. i knew my rights because i have available resources to me - not every mother-to-be does, especially the poor, and undereducated. my hatred for my child's bio dad grows less and less the more time that passes. i only feel sorry that he cannot be anything but miserable and uses me as a scapegoat for his problems. i just don't want anyone else to have to go through what i went through...a lot of abuse.
