This gem must have been written by 17-year old men for 17-year-old men, or at least the perpetual 17-year old men. The author, Isabella Snow, claims to be a woman, but for the life of me, I cannot imagine a woman selling out other women like this. Let’s dissect this, shall we? C’mon, it’ll be fun!
Dealing With An Uwanted Pregnancy
An unplanned and unwanted pregnancy can dramatically affect an otherwise loving long-term relationship. Some men rejoice, but others simply aren’t ready to be fathers. If they discussed the possibility and specifics at the start of the relationship, he may hope she’s going to stick to the original plan and terminate the pregnancy. And she might — but for some women, getting pregnant can start clocks ticking and make them suddenly want to be mothers, despite previous agreements.
Guess what? They are mothers.
Prenatal prep: If possible, have this conversation at home while sitting together on the sofa.
Who writes this stuff? Got it? Sofa! Like the waiting room at the doc’s office-bad. Dining room table-bad. Might bring to mind family dinners. Oh, don’t do that thing where you get all your bros together and all gang up on her with you. She might catch on that this isn’t about her. Taking her to Dave and Busters or Hooters-not good. She doesn’t even like that place, Try Red Lobster and let her order what ever she wants. Even dessert. Chicks dig that kind of thing. That is if you can’t do the whole “sofa thing”.
When you’re ready to share your opinion, you’ll want to use a calm, steady tone. You’ll also want to take care with your word choice; pregnant women tend to feel like they’re carrying someone, as opposed to something, even if she is just a month or so pregnant.
Because they are.
Toss words like “it” around too many times, and she’s going to start feeling like she needs to defend “it” from you.
::snort:: Do this, Mr. Tool, and you’re done. Take a long walk on a short pier. Fact is, if this is your intent, no matter how many crab legs at Red Lobster you buy, if you are asking her to kill her child so you can carry on doing who knows what…There are very few things that give women strength like love for their children. That pull you had on her, gone.
If you want her to really listen to you, paraphrase her own word usage.
Manipulate! The ends justify the means. Manipulate to get your way and what you want!!!
This is not the time to sugarcoat your true feelings. If you don’t want to be a father, you have every right to come out and say so.
Even though that was not what you were saying when you took the actions that made it possible to create this pregnancy.
Fatherhood will last for the rest of your life; if you’re not going to be able to cope with that, you need to make it clear so she can factor it into her decision-making process.
Let her know you totally plan on abandoning her and your child. Set the record straight. Be a man-er, well, you know a Bro (let’s not go too far and use the ‘m’ word).
When giving your opinion, use phrases like “I need” instead of “I want.” This will be easier for her to process on an emotional level, and will also sound less demanding.
Again, manipulate her into to doing what you want, not what she wants!
A new baby means significant life changes: Food, diapers, medical care — these things cost money you may not have. Who’s going to care for the baby while you’re working? Will you have to move to a new home? Will you have to sell your Harley and get a station wagon?
(This is a horrible article)
Take care that you don’t come across as whiny.
Because you’re whining.
If you feel the need to make strong declarations, use words like “can’t” instead of “won’t.”
Even though “can’t” means it’s impossible and the truth is you simply “won’t”. Manipulate. Lie. Do what you gotta do, Bro.
If you’ve followed all of these steps and your woman decides to have the baby anyway, this does not mean you’re required to get married or move in together. You’ll probably want to provide for your child regardless, but if you’ve been clear about your intentions from the start, you are not obligated to contribute beyond what your conscience and the law expects of you. This was her decision, not yours, and the bulk of the responsibility is now hers.
After all your hard work, you still don’t have to do the right thing just what the law forces you to do, which isn’t much, so buck up little camper. Life ain’t over. And you know what? You can use tales about how you take care of your kid to lure in the next woman. It works
I actually cannot believe there are articles such as these this day. Feminists, regardless of pro-life or pro-choice should be all over this. This article is not Dealing With an Unplanned Pregnancy. it’s How to Get Your Girl to Do What You Want When You Can’t Be Bothered. Disgusting.
