I feel no shame in calling myself a feminist. I believe that women are strong and capable. I believe that women are equal to men and deserve equal rights. But I also believe that with equality comes certain responsibilites so I get very upset about the legal inequality I see between men and women when it comes to issues of conception.
We hear about women's "rights" and, in the same discussion, of men's "responsibilities." When I read things like this I am disturbed by the implications and by a legal system that even allows such outrageous, blatant abuse.
Does anyone not see this as greedy and awful? 25K a month?! Who needs that? Just because a women is impregnanted by a rich man, is she entitled to that much money? Is it in the best interest of the child that the mother fleece the father?
