    when they realize it puts the responsibility on the FEMALE....

      your post is silly. Actually it's very misogynistic. If a dude doesn't want a child he should keep it in his pants or use a condom. Two people; both responsible for their bodily functions.

        My point made... Apparently biology is misogynistic. Gotta take that up with whichever deity you prefer.
        • .You make no senseTrish, Sat Oct 28 1:03pm
          to say that the responsibility for pregnnancy lies ONLY in a woman's hands is simply BS

                  The problem, as I see it, is that in our drive to try to make things equal across the board, there just may be situations where we can not achieve that goal. Yes - if the goose and gander share equal ... more

                    Biology is key. But if biology does not allow truly equal authority, then it should not result in equal responsibility.
