Lately, I’ve gotten a slew of hits to this video from Philosophy in Action: Should a man unwilling to be a father have to pay child support? It’s now gotten nearly 5,000 views. Nice!
That’s awesome. Alas, awesome often comes paired with crazy, such as this comment:
Let’s think about this bit — “If a woman steals a mans seed without his consent, does she have a right to live?” — for a moment.
First, I’m pretty sure that a man voluntarily gives his “seed” to a woman in having sex with her. That’s rather the point, in fact.
Second, are we talking death penalty?!? Um, wow.
Finally, here’s a pro-tip: Don’t ever suggest up-front that your audience might think you a sociopath after reading your opinion. It might just prejudice them against you… just a bit.
