Man gets his ex-GF to pay child support, and Reddit freaks out

Kind of surprised this hasn't made its way here, considering TRP is called out in the title. A very good example of the double standards people have, and how women are considered victims when they're treated the same way men are all of the time.


A common scenario: a woman becomes pregnant by "accident", her fling/ex/one-night-stand does not want to be a parent, but the courts end up forcing the man to pay child support for the next 18 years of his life, most of which may never go towards the child.

Of course, we are told that this is completely normal and acceptable. Both parents have a responsibility towards the kid. You can't opt out of being a parent. The child support is for the child's benefit. If you didn't want a kid, you shouldn't have had sex. And so on, and so on.

Except when it's a man that's forcing his girl to pay child support. Then, according to much of Reddit, he's a scumbag, a lying asshole, his child is to be pitied for being raised by him, etc.

In this instance, a 20-year-old man posted on Legal Advice asking for help. His ex-girlfriend was pregnant and wanted to put the child up for adoption when it was born, against his own wishes. He wanted to raise the child, even if he had to do so as a single parent. He said that he earned enough to support the child on his own and he was willing to take on the responsibility.

He was informed that his ex could not put the child up for adoption without his consent and that he should get a lawyer, register his paternity, and push for his custodial rights.

Yesterday, he came back with an update. He got a lawyer, managed to prevent his ex from putting the child up for adoption, and is now raising his daughter as a single parent, with his ex signing over her custodial rights. And oh yeah, after this all happened and he had his daughter, he also got his lawyer to file for child support and his ex now has to pay child support for the next 18 years, and she phoned him up livid, swearing at him and calling him every name in the book.

A very common scenario that often occurs with the man having to pay the child support, but now that it's the woman, plenty of people have some choice thoughts for this man.

I actually feel terrible for the mother. Because if she didn't want the child, she could have easily aborted the baby and this man goes, after the mother gives him full legal custody, and makes her pay child support?

I don't agree with this at all. (+723)

Yes, she definitely should've aborted her eight-month-old fetus to save money.

But that was the point of adoption, so someone could take proper care of the child. This just seems like dirty tactics. (+257)

Want proper care for your child? Put them up for adoption and send them off into the world!

She had a plan, but now has to pay child support instead because the father wanted full custody? (+420)

Now, after he gets custody of the kid, he wants her to pay child support? That kinda negates the point of not being able to support the kid. I'd say that's a dick move on the dad's part. She should have terminated if she knew he would do that. (+596)

Another "she should've aborted her almost full-term baby" comment.

Literally a post why she should have put it up, she'd be in much better position. Crazy. (+4)

If she put her daughter up for adoption, she would save money and her daughter would grow up without either of her birth parents. Imagine how much of a better position that would be!

She let him have the kid without a fuss at the end but then he files for child support? Holy shit can't understand how someone could do that. And just imagine the Reddit shitstorm if it had been the other way. (+188)

"Imagine if this happened to a woman!"

She was mislead and lied to. It is incredibly scummy and I now worry for this kid's future having a dad willing to so coldly lie and fuck over someone like that...There needs to be more reason in these laws. (+44)

Total dick-move to sue for child support. She clearly and expressedly did NOT want this child. She made the process for OP to have the child easy as possible. Had she gone the adoption route, she wouldnt be on the hook for child support, but decided to give the father a chance to parent. Absolutely an asshole thing to do to her. (+10)

What selfish prick. Also, what an excellent way to make that woman hate him until the day she dies. (+14)

I think it's a crappy thing to do, and if I was the mother, and he went after child support, I'd go after visitation rights. Then he may change his mind about wanting child support.

"If I was the woman, I would go after visitation rights and be miserable raising a daughter I don't want to get back at him!"

I am glad I am not the only one that was distressed about the underhanded way he went about getting child-support. His lack of honesty really worries me. (+61)

I'm conflicted regarding going after child support. In my head I feel it's wrong, if she had put the baby up for adoption then she wouldn't have to pay it for the next 18 years. However if the roles were reversed and the father wanted to put the baby up for adoption and the mother wanted full custody, then i think public opinion would be that the father obviously has to pay. The laws need to change regarding this topic for sure. (+19)

"Now that this has happened to a woman, the laws have to change!"

Also, one comment that made me laugh:

You said you weren't smart enough for college? Man, you seem brilliant!

And there are hundreds of other comments, calling him shitty, a scumbag, ice cold, and every other name in the book.

To be fair, at least half the people in that thread support him and think this is perfectly fine, maybe even the majority. But you can be sure that if this was a woman, nobody would've even blinked twice.

When a woman is given the same treatment that men undergo all the time, she is seen as a victim. Furthermore, when a woman suffers the smallest consequences for her actions, people will excuse any and all behavior on her part (such as a late-term abortion of a viable fetus to avoid paying child support).

It tells a lot about their worldview. In their eyes the only men are the top 1%. The psychopathic unstoppable ones. Who gets whatever they want and when they want especially sex.

They think if they would have been male then they would have been drowning in pussy all the time and will be getting sex without being labelled as slut.

Many feminists have literally confessed to me about it. I have to remind them that they are average or below average looking girls. And in the male world even the slightly above average looking man don't have such abundance of choices as much an very below average woman have. Their male version would have been below average looking men, which means they would be sexually frustrated and would be working hard to get acceptance from society and in return they would only be getting shit.

Its not that women cannot see the victims, its that they don't consider them a man. Label yourself as gay or transgender then they will notice you. Because such men won't be thinking of impregnating them if they will show compassion towards them.

Women's love is towards only such men that are capable of harming others and them. Their love is not for the victims who are harmed by such men.

My GF's GF, literally told me that female priveledge and sexual selection wasn't real. When I explained that women are the gatekeepers of sex, and a woman can get laid any time, any place, she said: "I'm sure if you just walked up to some girl, you could say 'hey, let's fuck' and she'd go home with you." I laughed so fucking hard... No honey, thanks for the compliment, I mean it... but no. That just shows how wrong you are about men. We have to put up with shit tests, even when they want us badly.

Probably how women have been treated like property for most of humanity's existence

If women are so strong and powerful, how are they so easily subjugated?

To be fair, women have been treated as property; So have men. If women were so oppressed then how did some of the most powerful and scary people in history end up being women? Cleopatra, "Bloody" Mary queen of Scots, Joan of Arc, just a few examples. People need to get off their high horses.

As for the guy from trying to get child support, there is one simple thing the girl can do. She can give up all parental rights, in Texas when she does this she will not be liable for child support, but she will also not have ANYTHING to do with the child.

In a sense, yes women were treated as property, but not so much an asset for the husband as an asset of society.

8 upvoteslukmeg2 years ago

You are going to get downvoted to hell, but for sake of discussion, you really think women were treated like property?

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

I don't mind downvotes, and I appreciate you not being really mean in your reply, I know this is a contentious topic and I'm actually of the belief that women and men are both negatively impacted by sexism, and I think that addressing one means to (or should mean to) address both. Just saying that to set the tone, I'm not against men's rights, I just hate how contentious they seem to be towards women's rights.

Of course women were treated like property. Have you read the Bible? It never speaks from a woman's perspective. The entire purpose of women is to birth men, be raped by men so that they had no choice but to marry the rapist, or be killed. Do you understand the history of the construct of marriage? Women were literally married to men historically because women weren't seen as fit to lead or to own, so they were married off to a man so that the man could inherit whatever her parents had and he would own any business her family had. Women as leaders were extremely rare. They inherited the man's last name because she was his, not the other way around. Women weren't allowed to leave their homes by themselves until like, the past couple centuries, and even then it wasn't the norm until like the 50s. Girls married young because it was the only way for them to get out of their parents' home. Their parents would only let their daughter leave if it was to marry. And then they'd marry whoever, many times it would end up being abusive, and they couldn't even divorce, because they weren't given the opportunity to work until the war. After all the men left for war and there were no men to work at home, finally then women got to work and weren't seen as totally useless for anything other than baby making, the divorce rate shot up as women could take care of themselves now, and they've been fighting their way up the ranks ever since. It was around when women fought to vote that the typical anti-feminist rhetoric came about, the idea that men who let their wives work or want to vote are weak, that the only women who would fight for those rights must not have a husband, that they couldn't get one because they're awful and ugly. The history is clearly documented that men have been pushing women down throughout history, and they continue to do so, and then they claim women are jealous of men's dicks. What s laugh. It's not the dicks we want, it's the power. The power to hold our own, not be seen as weak or dumb just because of our gender. To not have to fight for everything, all the fucking time. Fighting for credibility that men just get for being men. Everytime a woman takes a stand she's whiny, shrill, nagging, but when men do it's brave, strong, leader. Women get sexually harassed on the street about their body, and the threatened for not responding to it, because men like to think they own public spaces and they are ingratiating women by telling them how their presence makes the man feel, but god forbid a woman ever tells a man how he makes her feel (uncomfortable), or he'll stalk her or threaten her or attack her or just tell the rest of the world what a slut she is for not responding to his cat calling, or for responding to it. Either way she loses. Women are not the ones who own the public world, men are, and any time they feel challenged about it they will make sure they and everyone else knows it's "theirs". Even here, men are freaking out with glee over making a lady pay child support, when the reason for making men do it in the first place was to make up for the fact that men were able to simply walk away from a pregnant lady. And men are fighting to get rid of abortion, so women who got pregnant were stuck with babies, all the time, for a very long time. So laws were put in place to protect women from that kind of abuse. Women were taken advantage of and left in the dust historically, and so they put a law in place to make men equally responsible by paying child support. That was the context for that. Not because fuck men, but because so many women were getting fucked over by men who jumped ship and women weren't given an option. That's why they fought along different avenues to protect women from this, via abortion, adoption, and child support laws. This particular situation it's not the most common, it is a relatively modern problem. It shouldn't been seen as "haha, take that women!" It should be seen as, oh, usually the situation is the other way around, so this is something we should keep an eye on and consider for future cases. Women are typically not forced to pay child support because typically women don't abandon their babies, men typically do. Women are seen as caregivers, they aren't seen as leaders. This hurts women in the workplace, it hurts men in the home life. Two sides of the same coin. The same sexism affects both, and to overcome that stereotype would help both women in the workplace, and men with their home life. Why does it need to be seen as contentious for us to acknowledge​ that? Can't you see that accepting the sexism women do face would help men overcome the sexism they face themselves? Must we deny the hurdles of the other gender in order to fight our own? I don't think so. I think it's okay to admit that women are indeed underprivileged compared to men in a lot of ways, and thus in turn are given some advantages over men in other circumstances, and both are unfair and we should be working together to fight it on both fronts at the same time.

20 upvotesYouLoveThisBTW2 years ago

Thank you for your concise review of Woman's Studies 101. It's a beautiful rendition of cultural history without any context.

Have you ever considered why things were designed this way? Why 99% of all cultures across space and time created similar restrictions on women? You are clearly not familiar with the tenants of the subredit to which you post. Read the sidebar.

So without going into the well covered evolutionary psychology of men and women, let's look at all that "subjugation" from an entirely different angle.

Do you have any idea how difficult and dangerous life has been for either sex throughout history? "Their parents would only let their daughter leave if it was to marry. And then they'd marry whoever, many times it would end up being abusive, and they couldn't even divorce, because they weren't given the opportunity to work until the war." Where are these women, locked away until marriage, trying to go? Seriously, they were just going to go off, alone, and what? Start a farm on who's land? Families had sons who needed that land to raise a family. With what labor? Traditionally labor came from children! Oh, right, they can go become a cobbler or a tailor in the city... and compete against the heads of households who needed that work to support, wait for it, women and children and thus actually give something back to the community.

Feminists need to get real and consider the true options of past women that were so violently cut of by the patriarchy. There were none! And you know what else? There were no great options for the men either! You know why public speaking the number two fear behind DEATH? (And for some, they would literally choose death first). Because of the risk of rejection. To be rejected by ones tribe, group, community etc was DEATH. There was no "I'm going to do it alone, my way". Men and women alike were forced to stay the course, fit the role, and work within the confines of the culture and community they lived because death was waiting, not hiding but in full view, behind every misstep. And not just for the individual but for the family or the entire community.

And yes, in Response to this reality cultures developed stifling, prescriptive systems of subjugation for EVERYONE! You were born a cobblers son? A tribesman? A goatherd? Guess what you will be when you die? Either that or a soldier. For 10,000 years! Probably closer to 20,000.

And let's discuss the soldiers life for a second, shall we? The extra girls, for whom a viable husband with land and a future could not be found, stayed home, sad and alone or were taken care of by institutions of the state (read nuns). Extra men were sent to war. Forced to fight in most cases. Or they chose to start and soon found that there was no way out of a lifetime without purpose beyond death. Who cries for these COUNTLESS men and how they were raped by the system?

Women were given their husbands name because her entire life and sustenance came from her association with that man and his family. Just as the husband's name and life came from his family. They were all reliant on each other and were therefore forced to be reliable. Everyone's hand was forced.

TL;DR You have no understanding of the dangers of the world and the need to create and enforce a system that will allow a cultural group to survive.

Are you kidding? Have you seen the statistics in Europe? Nobody goes to church except for the elderly and certain African immigrants.

Personally as an atheist libertarian I couldn't care less about the death of christianity and I find it bizarre that some people think religion is required for the continuation of a civilisation.

African tribes are pro-natalist and many of them face threats of genocide and have their resources sold off by tyrants to the Chinese. Doesn't matter how many babies they pump out, they are fucked. Having more white babies in an endless race to outbreed immigrants will achieve nothing but even lower living standards. Pro-natalism is a red herring and an excuse to avoid the harsh truth that what we need is to block 3rd world immigration. Lowered birth rates are a normal and healthy social response to modern economic realities as we see in Japan which isn't faced with extinction just because they aren't fucking enough.

Do you know how rare atheist libertarians are compared to the great mass of humanity? Assuming you're the kind that has arrived at conclusions of your philosophies based on mutual benefit in interacting with society at large in a free market, and the necessary process you had to go through in order to come to that conclusion, the mental hardware involved in making all the appropriate cost benefit analyses' etc, do you realise how unlikely it is that said vast majority of humanity is capable of those things?

Religion was called the opiate of the masses for a reason, it offers simple idiot-proof justification for behaviour that contributes to "society", don't be bad because god is watching you and you'll go to hell, etc etc etc. Exactly the kind of shit you want someone to believe if they're half-retarded and you just don't want them to chimp out and kill / steal / rape / assault etc.

Red America has work to do, for sure. Turn off the TV, home school, develop a sense of community, and more. But Blue America is absolutely finished. Their aversion to marriage and children plus their devotion to global warming practically guarantees their demise.

CS / alimony / divorce / parental rights etc are no time for morals. Hunt or be hunted. This guy understood - or at least he got the right advice at the right time.

The system is fucked up beyond all reason, and I wouldn't take too much away from this other than to do your research. If you want to be in the sexual marketplace, know the risks. Have a plan for shit like this, have a plan for how to deal with false rape accusations, have a plan to deal with social fallout, have a plan to deal with STDs, etc.

Big boy pants time - this guy is 1 out of 100. He happens to be in Texas too. If the mother had even a hint of wanting the child, he'd have been fucked. If he'd not convinced the mother to go ahead with his plan, he'd have been fucked. If the mother had gotten good legal counsel... he's fucked. Let's not extrapolate and misread the larger societal situation - his success doesn't mean the system is fair. You can be a lot smarter than he is, and have a significantly worse outcome. She can and will change her mind at the last second - and actually she probably could still file for joint custody / no CS payments if she wanted now, and she'd probably get it.

Love the comments that are essentially "she should have condemned this kid to a foster family like she wanted rather than give it to a enthusiastic father so she could have avoided paying CS." We as a society don't give a shit about kids, we only care about her agency and her life. When it benefits her, we do a massive song and dance about "for the children", but really, the sacrifices are only supposed to be made in one direction.

Probably not, the courts are very biased towards maintaining status quot and the current living situation. She would have to get an unbelievably awesome lawyer and he would have to fuck up very badly in order for the courts to transfer custody to her, especially if there is any evidence at all of her not wanting the child.

That is one of the reasons men lose custody so often, when shit goes south they tend to either A) move out of the marital home, which is treated as abandonment or B) get a TRO against them that forces them to move out. This makes the "status quot" of the kids living with the mother and the courts tend to not want to disrupt that, and thus the man as the non-custodial parent, gets stuck with the CS payments. It's also why divorce lawyers always tell their female clients to get a TRO against the husband, it's practically an instant-win move.

14 upvotesharsha_hs2 years ago

This is incredibly true and once you have established a person as a 'bad' guy/girl especially with some evidence, then it is very difficult to turn it around in courts and that's why its incredibly important to make the first legal move when shit hits the fan. Never ever hesitate to contact a lawyer when your gut says you need one. Don't ever think 'its not that bad yet'.

It's always in the "best interests of the child" to maintain the current living situation during the proceedings. That is why your lawyer will recommend you come up with a "parenting plan", before going to court, outside of extreme situations the judge will stick to that plan.

What happens is the father moves out during the divorce, either to avoid contact with that "lying cheating slut" or due to a TRO from same "lying cheating slut". The judge then decides the children will stay with the mother, maybe even in the same home.

The worst part of it, is that many people don't objectively see this going on right in front of their faces.

21 upvotesfreebase422 years ago

Not that it matters, but speaking as a lawyer in Texas, I will say that the Family Law section of the Texas Bar has been working for decades to push back on the gender bias in family courts, and you're starting to see more and more judges rule in favor of awarding custody to the fathers because of that. It used to be that you couldn't get custody awarded to a father without a jury trial, but now judges award custody to fathers fairly routinely. That's not to say it isn't an uphill battle, but I don't think the fact that this case was in Texas is as significant as it would have been twenty years ago.

Yet another post that confirms the basic premises of this sub.

There are different biological and social expectations for men than for women. Here is proof. There is no such thing as gender equality. Only balance between the genders.

One of the most useful skills you can learn is to ignore all the SJW hamstering. It doesn't offer anything of value and it's mostly useless drivel constantly updated with made up terminology. Don't let it bother you. Don't react to it. Realistically, those people are much more vocal on the Internet. In real life they are usually only confident in groups (with the exception of the largest ugliest feminists who have given up on social norms entirely).

15 upvotesRPDrogan2 years ago

Dear iizkaraa,

I will gladly explain this to you, although I'm sure it won't change your already preformed opinion.

Our current social norms are beneficial to some people and detrimental to others. For attractive women, the current social norms are extremely beneficial. Due to anisogamy, men and women must mate in order to pass on our genes. However, sperm are tiny, numerous, and cheap, while eggs are few, large, and expensive. Therefore, the sex that has to give up more natural resources for procreation (women) is more selective about their potential mates. This is why men benefit from taking The Red Pill and learning about what gives us value.

Male attraction is primarily visual. This means that attractive women are the recipients of constant male attention and sexual desire. For attractive women, feminism is not only unnecessary, it is actually a hindrance. Attractive women are already catered to by society. Their lives are great and if they learn how to utilize their looks, they are very likely to end up wealthy.

On the other hand, unattractive women are screwed by society. Unlike unattractive men, who can still provide value in other ways, unattractive women are unappealing and undesirable to men. Therefore their value in society is also lower. They are not given the same perks as attractive women. They have to work twice as hard for half the reward. Men will ignore them unless they have something else to offer, hence why many unattractive women tend to be intelligent or talented in a particular area.

For obvious reasons, unattractive women are unhappy with their current role in society. Hence their prevalence in the feminist movement.

The reason most feminists are unattractive is because it would be illogical for an attractive female to be a feminist. She would essentially be working against her own self interests. The goal of feminism is to improve the lives of unattractive women. However the modern day feminist movement is very flawed. Which is evident from a multitude of sources.

Sorry but you ignored the part where I pointed out feminists who are not fat and ugly like you claimed, and I see that I did use the word extreme looking back now. Still, the words fattest and ugliest was used, which is why I used extreme, because those are extreme descriptions.

Y'all can downvote, I know to expect that from this sub, but the way I see it, the law was simply consistent with how it always was, and the concept that this is a "victory" for men's rights nuts is ridiculous. This wasn't a groundbreaking case, any guy who wants custody of their kid can fight for it, and statistically they have an equal chance for custody if they choose to do so. It's stupid to act like the reason this is unique isn't because the guy actually wants the baby and the woman doesn't, we all know what the law was made for. It was written because fathers tend to walk away from their baby for whatever reason, we know this is a very common occurrence, and it was proven to negatively impact the mother and child's quality of life while making no impact on the father's. It was written to protect people from that situation, and the law was written fairly to protect any parent from that situation, but we know which parent it happens to more. What you guys are really celebrating here isn't that the guy overcame the odds of the law being on his side (because he didn't defy the odds.. the law was written to protect this exact situation).. the odds that were defied was that the father actually wanted his baby and the mother didn't.

The fact that you're celebrating this shitting on the woman and feminists in general (I'm correcting myself, I did bring up the term extreme), is what makes me think you must be shitty people. Not the fact that the guy won custody or child support, I'm happy for him on achieving that and I'm not surprised that he was able to. But you guys, your glee, your slandering feminists for some reason like they have something to do with this, your acting like women never says it's unfair to men when they're forced to pay child support for the kid they didn't want to have, your attitudes making an enemy out of feminists and women, that's what I have a problem with.

I like how he's "sued" for Child Support too, this may well be the standard legal parlance but it seems to have these lot triggered. From my perspective it's the Father making sure that he's got at least some recognition of her responsibility to the kid and a token payment to help out and make sure the kid doesn't go without.

Just to rub a little salt in that wound. In the case of men, rape is no excuse not to pay child support. If you are too young to pay child support? To bad your parents are on the hook for it:

It is one of the earlier cases now cited in U.S. child support guidelines which say that in every case that has addressed the issue the court has decided that an underage boy is liable for the support of his child even when the conception was the result of statutory rape by the mother.

There is a really strong correlation between areas that have a high density of poor blacks and "SIDS." That's "sudden infant death syndrome."

Now don't get me wrong, there are plenty of cases of legitimately impossible to determine child deaths, it's a diagnosis of exclusion. You could probably reasonably determine the portion of these diagnosis that are in fact, random and undetermined by looking at the rates in highly affluent areas with strong conservative values.

Then you could compare those rates with highly liberal (or outright antisocial), poor, black communities and see how high that rate is.

So what you'll see is a rise in "SIDS."

Shit, her child support won't be even close to what a man will be forced to pay, and they don't apply all the penalties to girls either.

I made less than $2k a month on active duty, she was making $3000 a month. The same exact state hit me with 71% of my gross, and her with 10% of her net.

He asked why it was so low, they told him it is against state law to force someone into poverty. Last time I checked, the $100-$300 a month I got after the 71% was well under poverty. State law said 68% was the max, but they hit me with 71%. No lawyer in the state would fight for me either, even if I could afford them.

They're outraged, but this little cunt wont get fucked by the pittance they'll "request" her to pay. She won't go to jail when she gets behind. She won't get her passport revoked, nor her drivers license, and her credit won't be fucked into the 200s. There's far more than one double standard.

What are the stats on men with custody? I have custody of my 16 year old son and have had it four 14 years. She ran off when he was born, filed child support on me at once. Of course I had no attorney and received the stipulations I had to be supervised for visits with my son because I yelled at her once. It didn't matter that she spent all of the bill money on nails, hair getting done and clothing, I'm the monster. Of course she tells me that if I try to see my son she'd acuse me of rape or hitting her. For two years see my son once. Life moves on and I get married and my wealth increases, hire attorney and take her to court. It should be noted I hired a bad ass female attorney, she ended up winning an election to county DA. She came in like a boss and found a judge that heard our case. Dude must have been red pilled because he started asking her questions like where's she been working and how many times she's moved and how many relationships she's been in. She lies, gets caught by my attorney, thanks to Facebook. Also, my attorney finds a CPS complaint against her for drugging my son and leaving him alone to go to a concert. No one told me about this of course. It was filed by her grandmother who just got through testifying how wonderful she was, looks like granny lied under oath.

Basically she tried to say I'm out of control etc...she loses I win. I get my son back. Everything is wonderful right? Nope. I'm still paying child support. We took the paper work over to the child support office to get it stopped and those sjw tricks refuse to stop it and lose my court paper work. Six months later I call the judge leave him a message about what all has been going down. He has his clerk call me back, has me pick up a new order to take over to the child support office. I drop it off and 3 months later nothing. I've been paying her 9 months of child support for a kid she doesn't have. She could give the money back to me right? Lol nope. Call the judge and this dude is based, he sent two deputies over with a court order and if it's not completely compiled at once, the director of the office was going to be arrested on the spot for contempt of court. It was a Christmas miracle because they stopped! I went down and filed child support on her a week later. 14 years later and my case is still pending.....still pending. I get a call every now and again asking me why I haven't been paying child support, I have to fax all my paperwork over and I get now where. When she filed on me the case was done in 2 weeks. I'm at 14 years and I get comments about how I'm a shit bag and it's not real manly of me. Oh well, I will never see a dime. My case for those 9 months I paid in error is still pending after 14 years. She was provided with an attorney when she filed child support against me, I have been treated like shit. So nothings changed.

I didn't need the child support payments for daily care of my daughter but I think she deserves to have something saved up for the future and for her college. I didn't have the chance to go to college (not smart enough, I'm not good at studying) but I want to make sure my daughter has the chance!

That being said, even the users against the guy don't come off as "SJWs," and the posts disagreeing with them are getting more upvotes. In fact, most of the lowest rated posts are ones demonizing the man.

25 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

The double standard is obvious and disgusting. When a man pays it's almost as if it is just meant to be that way. It's like a tradition to feminists and they feel entitled. Opposite? The sky is falling and their blood curdling screeches can be heard for miles.

I read it on social media about celebrities as well. A couple will separate and the woman takes the man to court and is totally entitled to alimony and child support. Women praise it; the men complaining are called superficial pigs. I mean, some men pay tens or even hundreds of thousands a month. Some of these women didn't even work a single second for that money. But if a man makes such a request and wins it, the guy is a pathetic loser who should go get a job.

I know all too well of the discrepancies of justice within the Family Court system. As a young man in my late teens I was tricked into getting a girl I had been dating for a few weeks pregnant. She was on birth control, but didn't take it intentionally... by the time I learned that it was too late, obviously. I was dragged through Family Court. She said she didn't want support, but as soon as we got in front of the Magistrate and he asked her if she did, she said yes. I was going to college and worked part time making like $100 a week (hours cut due to holidays being over).

Time went on and she collected my money, but used it to buy cigarettes, pay for her cell phone and more. It was to the point that my family and I paid for everything while I paid child support. Food, diapers, formula, wipes, toys, medicine, copays, etc. We paid for 99% of it.

The mother have up custody and I had joint with the maternal grandmother, who had been great up to that point. A little goofy, but good. She didn't work weekdays so she had residential while I worked fulltime by then. She signed up for some grandparent grant that kicked us back into family court. Child support started and I even fell into arrears due to administrative issues. They garnished big portions of my paycheck. At least it was supposedly being used for my daughter, who I really had half of the time.

One day the grandmother can't do it anymore out of the blue, calls me while I'm with my dying grandmother to tell me as such, and we meet her at my home where she drops off my daughter with some stuff. I file for sole custody and get it, but child support is still being taken out of my check. I literally had residential and sole custody, but kept paying because the courts had archived my support case and it took a long time. Hundreds of dollars biweekly. I was able to get it frozen after awhile, but the grandmother had taken a lot of it to get her nails done, but a brand new iPad, get new clothes, etc. I get back what was frozen, but I doubt I'll ever see the hundreds of other dollars she owes me.

The mother tries to get joint custody after abandoning my daughter multiple times. It's denied multiple times, and I'm told to file for child support by my lawyer. I do and it's granted to me. $50 a week plus half of all uncovered medical expenses. She is visibly upset. I'm happy. Equality, bitch... or so I thought.

She doesn't pay her child support at all. Not a single cent. She doesn't work, had another kid with another guy, doesn't try and find work, etc. I petition the court to have the support enforced. She doesn't show... twice. I lost 2 days of work for nothing. Arrest warrant put out for her, which sounds dandy. She gives herself up 2 days later, I drive like a maniac 45 minutes in torrential downpour to get to the court, and am told by the Magistrate that they won't arrest her because it won't help her get a job. She supposedly sets up appointments with the Dept of Labor to show she will try, but never goes through with seeing them. Still no support collected.

Now it is 2.5 years later, she's over $6k in arrears, I've petitioned again for it to be raised and enforced... so we will see what happens. All I know is that if it was opposite, I'd be titled a "Deadbeat Dad," arrested, have stuff taken away from me, etc. Her? She lives off the government, plays the "woe is me" act about how she has another child, etc. Nothing happens.

And this is all really about support, not custody. That was a hole just as deep.

I'm glad this guy got the child and the child support. The fact that the double standard is evident and somehow justifiable in the minds of feminists is disgusting. Men/Fathers have rights, and I hope that such inconsistencies have more light shed on them. But maybe they won't, because any time such s topic is brought up, they cover their ears, close their eyes and scream. Just look at how they acted when some colleges wanted to play The Red Pill documentary! People protested, ripped down signs, etc. Men's Rights Activists are often protested, demeaned, called vile names and more.

Yeah, this woman literally destroyed my life. I love my daughter and she's an amazing child; caring, loving, compassionate are all words to describe her. But I wasn't ready at 19 to be a father. And this girl decides to trick me and then bail and never have any consequences for her actions, or lack thereof.

My mental health deteriorated faster than a decomposing body in a heatwave. She blackmailed me, threatened me, and fabricated vile lies about me. Not one time did she get in trouble. I started having chest pains around the time of my most stress, o my being 25ish at the time. I started having panic attacks so immense I thought I was going to die. I still, to this day, deal with the glowing embers of anxiety that flare up from time to time. I've lost many opportunities and a lot of freedoms due to her. Yes, I could've ran and abandoned my daughter, but I could never have the heart to do that.

I'm glad to see father's rights finally having a light shown on them. I have friends who have similar issues as mine, but they weren't as fortunate. Their exes run them through the vicious system, leaving them hopeless, with little money, and depressed.

Entrapping a man into unwilling fatherhood should be considered a crime of its own. I mean, if you take the condom off during sex people are saying that is an example of a man raping a woman, so why shouldn't a woman tricking a man into pregnancy not be a crime? Not rape, but just something.

"with his ex signing over her custodial rights."

Typically, when custodial rights are voluntarily terminated, child support obligations typically cease.

How do I know this? I was in a similar situation with my son, and his mother signed away her custodial rights releasing her from any and all responsibilities, period. Including her right to see him. That is up to me. This happens alot more often than you think, male or female. It happened to a friend years back, the dude wasn't interested in raising the child and signed his rights away.

Ya'll dudes are ridiculous...

With that being said...if she signed her rights away and somehow signed an agreement to pay, but didn't realize what the fuck she was signing, damn right she should be pissed - what human, male or female, wouldn't be? Also, do any of you know the state he lives in, his attorney, etc? Probably not.

Did you read the comments and look at the amount of upvotes different responses got?

Most people saying the situation is shitty also clarified they believe forcing men to pay child support for children they don't want is also shitty.

The comments siding with the guy get more upvotes than those siding with the woman - the comments that demonize the man are the comments with the most downvotes.

I actually feel terrible for the mother. Because if she didn't want the child, she could have easily aborted the baby and this man goes, after the mother gives him full legal custody, and makes her pay child support? I don't agree with this at all. (+749)

Yes, that is one of the highest rated comments, but look at this response to that quote:

Well, thats equality. If this seems unfair, so is making a man pay for an unwanted child (+2042 - and got Reddit Gold)

More responses to the things you quoted:

But that was the point of adoption, so someone could take proper care of the child. This just seems like dirty tactics. (+255)

Someone is taking proper care of the child, the father. Women get child support from men all the time and nobody blinks an eye. This guy wants to get child support from the mother and put it towards his daughters college and he's using dirty tactics? Get your head out of your ass, he did the right thing on all accounts. (+267)

Majority of people are supporting the idea of the mother paying child support and viewing the man's uses of it positively.

She let him have the kid without a fuss at the end but then he files for child support? Holy shit can't understand how someone could do that. And just imagine the Reddit shitstorm if it had been the other way. (+190)

You act as if he's pocketing the money or buying a new car or some shit. This is money that goes towards the betterment of the child's life and is a legal responsibility of the non-custodial parent. (+247)

You even edited one of the posts to make it look like it was more against your position and men than it actually is. You quoted:

She was mislead and lied to. It is incredibly scummy and I now worry for this kid's future having a dad willing to so coldly lie and fuck over someone like that...There needs to be more reason in these laws. (+44)

The part you intentionally cut out?

I would feel the same if the gender roles were reversed. There needs to be more reason in these laws.

You tried to interpret those comments and make it like people make excuses for women, etc., but the reality is the comments and their ratings show the OPPOSITE of what you're trying to point out.

Case by case, since after 5.5 months the baby can technically survive(There was a case in UK I think where a girl was born at around this point, sure she spent the next two and a half years in an incubator while her body finished developing to the same level as a regular term baby, but still).
Also, most congenital diseases(Down's syndrome, mental defects, organ defects, etc) are tested for before the second trimester, so no problem there.

I think you meant to say 4.5 months...fetuses as young as 20 weeks have survived outside the womb. I don't think abortion should be legal after 20 weeks....after that they should induce birth.

No adoption needed, simply travel to another state, and drop off the baby anonymously through safe haven laws. Mother fucked up hard hence why we rarely see cases like this.

Typical SJW hypocrisy. Child support is usually for the child's benefit. No it is not always fair, and many times it is abused. The man did the right thing by filing for child support from the woman and it is beyond unsurprising that the left SJW victim machine is not a fan.

2 upvotes2012Aceman2 years ago

In my experience "women's rights" refers 100% of the time to abortion AKA the right to define what is life and what is not life. And the sole determination of whether a fetus is going to be human, or is going to be sludge, is how she feels in that moment. It was never about the kid, but if you make it about yourself you become "selfish", so you gotta have proxy power.

There's definitely a double standard here, but why can't you think that what this guy did is just as shitty as a girl doing the same thing?

None of the comments op quotes are saying "this is only wrong because it's a man doing it".

1 upvotesjdgalt2 years ago

The guy doing it is just as immoral -- but it's in the cause of undermining the foundation of the evil child support law. Besides, I doubt they awarded him anywhere near what he would have had to pay her if she had done it to him.

1 upvotestallwheel2 years ago

In either case, the woman is always the one who decides whether the child is born or not. In light of that, I am far more sympathetic when a man is forced to pay for a child he didn't want, and could not decide whether they would be born or not. This woman was completely responsible for this child being born.

There is definitely an argument for why child support should exist - in reasonable amounts, of course. If the woman is not paying an unreasonable amount in this case, then I have no problem with what happened here - even as an MRA and redpiller.

What disgusts me the most about it is that people are seriously suggesting that she should of aborted the child to avoid having to pay money to the father, i mean how fucked up can you get?

Personally i think abortion should be illegal unless there is a real risk of the mother dying from giving birth or the child will have a poor quality of life due to health issues. Better reasons than i don't want it.

1 upvotesjdgalt2 years ago

The right way to avoid the need for that kind of abortion (against either partner having to pay child support) is for the law to stop awarding child support and always treat the single parent as having adopted the child. And the best way to get there is to make this case happen more often.

2 upvotesbopperman2 years ago

Total and utter hypocracy. There is no logic whatsoever that it should work any different if it was the woman claiming child support. And to suggest that they woman should have aborted the guys child if she had known he was going to claim child support....i am speechless.

So you're telling me (and most of the commentators, it seems) it's an injustice when a man is forced to support an unwanted child but when it happens to a woman it's all good?

The problem is the legal and societal double standard due to women having the choice to abort and men not offered a similar choice financially, not comments outraged at someone's injustice.

1 upvoteseduscape2 years ago

It's called signing over custodial rights.

0 upvotes • [deleted] • 2 years ago

If you actually bothered to give an unbiased representation of the comment section of that post, we would all see that the commenters are overwhelmingly praising the father and agreeing with his course of action:

This thread is a little eye opening. Post upon post from mothers about their kids involve being told to sue for child support. Dad sues for and wins child support and he's apparently an asshole to a huge number of you.


But how often are the roles reversed where a father doesn't want to keep the child and ends up having to pay support for 18 years? No one feels bad for him and they'll call him a dead beat if he doesn't want to pay. You're a parent. Regardless of what's beneath your pants. If one parent wants to keep the child, your obligation as the other parent, legally, is to provide support.


I feel like I'm taking crazy pills reading this thread. Child with two parents, custodial parent gets child support from non-custodial parent. In what world is this wrong or controversial?



How about making a quality contribution, instead of whining about "muh men's rights issues!" where there are none? Of course, those who commented and upvoted this post are also at fault for not bothering to click the link first.

I think the value of a thread like this isnt with a positive "improve your game/finance/whatever" advice type of thread. Its more in the vein of "watch your back, this is what to do if shit gets real".

I get that it seems kind of annoying and whining in nature. A lot of that part is exaggerated I guess to front page it. The thing is its not that valueless a whine where it is just sooking. It does discuss the concept of the dude not getting financially pumped over a kids custody. He even gains at the end of the day.

While I agree that there are reasonable posts about it, OP also commented on that.

To be fair, at least half the people in that thread support him and think this is perfectly fine, maybe even the majority. But you can be sure that if this was a woman, nobody would've even blinked twice.

I concur with that assessment. In fact, there are even people who outright admit that they were biased in favor of the woman in that equation by default, without really thinking about it.

While I agree that he failed to illustrate the situation fully (only giving the other side a quick mention), the fact that what seems to be 40% of the people hate the father is still very telling. These 40% wouldn't be there if this was a mother talking.

That's a darn good point, but with Reddit you never know which country the up-votes or comments are coming from.

It seemed to me, just judging by attitude alone, a lot of the people in the against-the-Father camp were American Women.

Don't get me wrong; I'm not basing that off anything but an assumption linked to the undeniably entitled nature of a certain class of women in that country, but that's how it seemed to me.

4 upvoteswapu2 years ago

You are missing the point. The point was not that it was unfair because she was a woman. The point is that she wanted to give the kid up and have no parental obligations. She then gave the kid to the other parent instead and will be financially responsible. It was a dick move by the parent who ended up with the kid. The same dick move that women pull all the time and people go crazy in this sub talking about.

Showing happiness for this is hypocritical. And now this sub ud showing the same double standard you called out. We should be just as upset at this father as we would be of a mother who pulled the same crap. This thread is proving all of the detractors of this sub right, we don't come off as someone who wants equality, we want revenge. To be honest, this thread sound like a feminazi post from tumblr.

Mother or father, we need a mechanism in this country to legally allow a parent to give up their child without being held hostage by the other parent.

1 upvotesjoh21412 years ago

I get that this sucks. Guys get shitted on every chance society gets. And usually it's the dad's that's always making the sacrifices that gets shitted on the hardest. I know TRP doesn't really respect Asian culture but it's an old Asian saying that fathers get shitted on despite all the sacrifices they make.

But it's important when you're telling yourselves with posts like this NOT to get bitter with the world and NOT to get demoralized. This is just the way of life. Women will continue getting these social crutches. I have coworkers who are women who don't do shit and all they do is complain about how hard they work even though all they do is hog all the hours and literally use those hours to sit down on their phones rather than work. Meanwhile I get shitted on for other people's inability to work. But if you get bitter and resentful at society, ONLY YOU suffer from it.

I think it's important to be reminded that we live in an unfair society that views men like shit. But it's also important to not let this get you jaded. Worrying too much about things such as these that you cannot control is not very TRP. Just take a deep breath. Understand the world sucks and the advantages are stacked against you. But don't let it change you or make you weaker. Learn from it and become stronger.

0 upvotesiwasbornred2 years ago

You shouldn't be held accountable because you came in some bitch. Plus there are so many ways this shit is abused and she winds up pregnant when you didn't think your semen ever entered her.

Child support is only justifiable if the person signs a contract stating that they are the parent and accept that responsibility, then later decide they don't want to and would rather make payments. Of course, there's holes in this, but parenthood should require consent, period.

Plus, there is no fucking way you can say all men should just assume financial responsibility for any baby that comes from any of their loads. Could you imagine if old genghis had this responsibility? Even he would be broke!

The woman is the only person who gets to decide whether the baby lives or dies. Therefore, she should be responsible for her decision, and no one else, UNLESS a contract is signed.

Edit: my last paragraph is contradictory, I know, but I think you catch what I'm saying. She didn't agree to be a parent, she agreed to have the baby and did it in a responsible manner where the baby would have a caretaker. That caretaker just happened to be a piece of shit.

You can't have it both ways. Either child support is wrong or it isn't. It's not right because it's being imposed on a woman.
