    [QUOTE]I think if the US is going to remain pro-choice  the laws need to be changed so that men have the same option. If women can decide that they aren't ready or able to care for a child and wants an abortion, men who feel they aren't ready for parenting should be able to sign away their rights and be released of all financial responsibility, no questions asked.

    I agree with this if the mom is ok with it.  With abortion, both parties can walk away.  If there's no abortion then at least one person is stuck with a child.  I don't think it would be fair for either party to just be able to say "Sorry, I can't handle this.  Peace out." without consequences.  They both got themselves into the mess, both people need to agree on a course of action to handle it.

    But if the mom wants an abortion, it's a done deal. It doesn't matter if the man wants the child or not, she has the right to choose for both of them. A man can't force a woman to have an abortion so if she gets a choice, I absolutely think the man should get the same choice.

    [QUOTE]I agree that no one should be personally told by strangers or loved ones to change their looks either way. I do not however understand how anyone could be offended by an overall mantra of "love your curves." Particularly when the majority of depictions of socially accepted beauty tell you to love being thin. How does it hurt you to see acceptance of the other side of the coin? 
    Posted by celticmyss[/QUOTE]

    In case I was misunderstood, the overall mantra does not offend me. It just often goes hand in hand with skinny people bashing, which is annoying.

  • I just had this image of signing a contract before banging, like some colleges are requiring. Check a little box that says "I do not want a child that may result from this sexual encounter," and the mom would then have the option of saying, "No way am I going to raise a child on my own. I think I'll put my underpants back on."

    It's a stupid idea, but that's just where my mind went.

    Our mall has one. I've never had the pleasure to go in there, but my boss said it's really nice, soothing he said.

    When my DH's daughter was here, we went to lunch, the boys at the end of the table freaked out and left when she had to breast feed. And I mean <strong>had</strong> too. She didnt pump yet because it would cause nipple confusion and the baby was really having a hard time of it.

    It's not like you can reason with a 2 month old and explain that they'll eat when there is no one around. I dont have a problem with discreet BFing. Babies have to eat. Its the ones that go out of their way to MAKE you uncomfortable then wonder why you have an issue.

    Well as someone who was left when she was 5 months pregnant and chose to raise her child, you bet he was paying child support. Dont even get me started!
  • Oh I also didn't mean that I am bothered by people who love their curves.  I just don't like being constantly told that I am unhealthy because I am the size that I am.  I don't think its right to point out how skinny I am or complain about people who are size 2, anymore than it is okay to point out how fat someone else is or complain about people who are size 10.  In my experience,society tends to have no problem telling me I am too skinny as a joke ("Eat some cake!"  Or "Ugh you are a size two?  I hate you"), but if I called someone fat or told them to lose weight, I would be a bitch.  This doesn't make sense to me.  I generally don't think anyone should be commenting on anyone else's body no matter what their size is.

    I get what you are saying, but men don't get the say all the time when a woman decides to have an abortion.  What if the man wanted to the baby.  Oh well, he's sh!t out of luck cause the woman decided.

    I do think there needs to be an agreement made, but I think a man should be able to walk away.

    I know it's not different.  She was just making the point that the man shouldn't be allowed to run away from it if the mom wants it because they need to make the choice together. So based on her argument, then a woman shouldn't be able to get an abortion if the father wants the baby to stay alive.
  • I'm not talking about abortions at all.  I'm talking about when the child is born, one person should not be able to walk away just because they don't want to deal with the situation.  If a man wants a woman to have an abortion, but the woman decides to do it on her own, then no I don't think the man should be held responsible.  But if it comes down to the wire and one person decides all of a sudden that they don't want any responsibility, I think that's crap.
