running man have the best effect

“Finding the center of strength within ourselves is in the long run the best contribution we can make to our fellow men. … One person with indigenous inner strength exercises a great calming effect on panic among people around him. This is what our society needs — not new ideas and inventions; important as these are, and not geniuses and supermen, but persons who can “be”, that is, persons who have a center of strength within themselves.”

Yeah, no. Men should be able to sign away parental rights. Women have abortions and men should have something similar. If a man does not want to be in that child's life, he should not be forced to pay child support for a child he didn't want. You and people like you continue to keep men from have equal rights to women. Women have more reproductive rights than men because you and people like you coddle women.

Oh boy I’ve been lumped in with SJWs! That means I’m running my blog right!

Anyway, on principle that sounds nice, but in practice I could see it as a way for men to dodge responsibility after the child is born and leave the woman out to dry. I think the best course of action would be if the man and woman signed a document BEFORE she got pregnant stating who is going to accept responsibility for parenthood and how long the agreement is to remain in effect. That way if she does get pregnant, there’s no question about whether the man promised to stay and then left or anything like that. But something like that needs to exist first before we implement an easy legal process for a man to abdicate parental rights just to get out of child support.
