With respect to paternity fraud, we see the acceleration of female hegemony in intimate and family contexts. They aren’t calling a truce, they’re pushing harder than ever.
Later Deti stated,
The argument against DNA testing, and why it has been banned in France, is that “it’s bad for the children; it doesn’t serve the interests of making sure children are cared for”. The argument goes something like this, and is a subject of Rollo’s latest post.
“If we let men find out whether they are really the fathers of their children, we’re going to create all kinds of problems. First, a few men will find out their wives cheated. That’s going to destabilize those marriages. Might even cause domestic violence.
“Second, men will try to get out of paying for and supporting children who aren’t biologically theirs– even if those men have been supporting those kids for a long time already. We cannot have that, because those kids will then have to go on welfare, and that will strain the government coffers.
“Third, men won’t be fathers and parents to those kids, and we all know that a healthy home life in which those children are loved and cared for is best for them.
“Therefore, DNA testing is bad, and creates more problems than it solves. So we cannot have DNA testing. Men just have to accept cuckoldry, support it, and live with it, because the public policy balance weighs against DNA testing, against men, against fathers, and in favor of children and women.”
I am sure that the ladies out there will not completely understand this, but fellas are deep down really sensitive to this issue. Here is an illustration from Liz,
Last night we had a few friends over and the one friend got completely plastered (he was out on the boat with Mike earlier, that’s where he became inebriated). He had just broken up with his girlfriend. What happened was, she went out with the girls (she lives in another town) two nights ago and told him where she would be (she texts him about 50 times a day).
It was a bar where they had live webcams everywhere, so he wrote back, “Cool, I’ll be able to watch you online”.
I guess she didn’t get the memo. So, he got online and saw her behaving very badly. While he texted, “I can see you” and then started texting her pictures of herself in flagrante delicato. It was a public bar so it wasn’t like she was having sex, but I guess it was egregious enough.
She didn’t check her phone until later and now she has been calling him nonstop. But he isn’t answering of course.
This is really the first relationship he has ever had where he actually loved the girl and planned to be with her longterm (they’d talked about kids and future plans…she’s in nursing school). He’s also a very “alpha” dude. He’s the one I mentioned a while back with stalkers, and the chick who left him pies and a grill on his front doorstep and still writes to him after years and years. Just turned 30
There’s really no earthly reason I can figure out why she acted so disloyally
The answer of course is once again, that men are much more sensitive to this than women are. This sensitivity will never go away.
The aspect that is surprising is that it not more of an issue. The policy makers and media do their best to make sure that it does not bubble to the surface. Laws are passed in an attempt to preempt any productive usage of DNA tests. In Communist countries, one means of control was to give the people no hope for something better. This is where the hegenomy that BuenaVista mentions comes into play. This is seemingly the strategy here. Men should not even bother with this issue, because one cannot win. However, will this always be the case? Will this issue always be completely off of the map? If not, when and how will it come forth?
And as for the good of the children argument, that is a odd one to make. There are many rules that have been loosened and so many subsidies distributed that lead to results that are bad for the children. Yet, apparently, we are all OK with these changes. Perhaps the most powerful argument for reigning feminism in is for the children
