In this post Dalrock confirms that,
We didn’t modify our marriage based family structure to allow an exception for the child support model, we replaced the marriage model with the child support model and created a very limited exception for marriage.
The child support model is now the rule of the land, our official family structure. Parents are permitted to opt out of the child support structure only so long as both of them wish to continue opting out.
This was in response to Dr Helen’s post which had this nugget,
Women use the government as a way to control men, then they complain that men don’t want much to do with them. It’s a vicious cycle but one that most women are okay with.
If women are OK with this policy, then the government and academics should try to dig down and see why this is. But since they won’t, that leaves it up to us. Here are some ideas why women are perfectly fine with this scheme,
1. They don’t want to have to accommodate to a man’s needs and desires (with one exception). The flip side is that they want to do whatever it is that they want to do.
2. They want the tingles from sexy guys. And yes, they will accommodate to these men’s desires. At least in the short term.
3. They don’t understand / want to understand / pretend not to understand that men have a positive role to play as fathers other than the breadwinner aspect.
4. They are “sticking it to the man (or rather men as a whole)”. But it is with a nuclear tipped boomerang.
Of course, there might be others, please chime in. Your assignment is to parcel out percentages for the average woman for each aspect as the why they are good with the new policy. Of course, this will all be based on anecdotal evidence, and would be readily dismissed by the academics and government officials. But who knows? Maybe some of them will read this, and perhaps some good will result.
P.S. The elephant in the room is the children. Women do seem to mostly care for their children, even though it often seems that they do not when considering their actions and inactions. This is probably because their hamsters are so well developed. It would also seem that there is a huge hamster camped out at Washington, DC.
P.P.S. NAWALT applies
