We see it happen over and over, and we rain our curses down on on the dick, then reserve our particular contempt for the egg donor. We look for who to assign the blame, and there's always plenty to go around, including neighbors and extended family. Maybe we aren't looking far enough. In a rush to put a face on our outrage we may be missing the bigger picture. The economy has no face. She goes to work, he usually doesn't. Looks ridiculous on the face of it, but she's trying to provide instead of sitting on her ass. Have you seen the cost of child care? Ask yourself what she'd have left after paying, and how she could provide and get ahead. You can feed a man for a lot less, with the hope of having a real partner in life. Even if he does nothing, he's saving you about $100/wk. This is a low-income tragedy. What financially stable guy with property is going to reach into the gutter to pull a readymade family out of poverty? This questionable opportunity only looks good to a guy that doesn't have jack shit to begin with. Seriously, three hots and a cot minus the bars, and there's pussy too! The only downside is the screaming kid. In vast swathes of our nation, 40 hours of work can't support an individual, much less a family. This is creating tremendous stress at the low end of the economic scale, and the number of families and individuals living in poverty keep growing. More domestic violence, murder-suicide, family slayings, and the sweet oblivion of drugs and alcohol are the result of these pressures. How do we turn this around?
