Own Up To Womanhood|
What can society do to reduce the rate of single young women birthing illegitimate children into society, which in turn births deadbeat fathers into the child support system and millions of children into poverty?
What is the government's role in decreasing the amount of young Black women contracting HIV/AIDS, and what can ethical organizations such as churches and family planning groups do to encourage stronger families among a dysfunctional and growing number of young parents? The answer is - nothing.
These are surface problems: cause and affect because of a weakness within the female gender, and that falls squarely on one shoulder and one shoulder only. Once and twice single women must learn to say no by keeping their legs closed and many of these problems would go away.
If the woman said no, the man would not have the chance to implant his seed. It is no excuse to say the woman thought the man loved her and would be with her forever, which is the same as being ignorant of the law [the laws of life in this scenario.] There is no excuse for any woman to have fatherless children when the government has given women the laws of personal choice over their bodies.
There is no argument for the theory of women being the weaker vessel and that a man has some type of control over her body when personal choice is such a hot issue in America. Or that men have some suggested power over women, because women have gained their equality where it pertains to intelligence and the ability to do whatever a man can do and better.
There would be no child support system because there would be no fatherless children. There would be no high rates of HIV/AIDS because the disease would not have the chance to travel throughout the female gender, and there would be no need for family planning because it would come as a natural. Men would know that in order to get what they want from the woman, they would have to commit, and soon it would become a social given.
This problem can never be blamed on the personal responsibility practices of men because, though they hold the "keys to life", they are not the ones who can change the locks whenever they want.
