this is female privilege

So I was reading this story about a young man who refuses to pay child support because it was a product of rape.


And this statement really made me frown:

"The crux of the tension here," said Ruth Jones, a professor of law at McGeorge Law School in Sacramento, Calif., "is if … he is a victim of forcible rape, is that sufficient to alleviate him from the responsibility of child support?"

WHY IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION?? If a woman got pregnant as a result of rape, would people ask this question of her? Never. The very next line is this:

There is a case that deals with this. It’s not exactly like Kris’ case, but similar. It involves a 34-year-old man from Alabama who passed out at a party. A woman had sex with him while he was unconscious and she got pregnant. The court ordered him to pay child support.

How can this happen in a world, where supposedly, men have all the rights ever? If you want to talk about victim blaming in rape culture, let’s look at the man who got COURT ORDERED to PAY FOR GETTING RAPED.
