I have taken responsibility. The ex hasn't. Still have no idea what this has to do with....anything really. I agree with AnaGram, horsesh!t argument.
Victim blaming and questioning the woman's role ONLY in a bad relationship undermines all what feminism is attempting to achieve.
Suggesting that women need to take responsibility for making bad choices, as if somehow they don't already, is a form of victim blaming when the equal suggestion that men need to take a portion of the blame for a bad relationship and MUST also support their children in not also presented.
Arguing over who fault a bad relationship is, or who's fault a baby is conceived does not excuse a man for not supporting his child E.V.E.R.
Feminism aims to teach both boys and girls about choices, responsibility and respect for all humanity.
We cannot assume that femisnim has finished its campaign while people continue to insist that women are to blame for being left holding the baby.

Both men and women choose poor partners. Both men and women choose poor partners to have babies with. Both men and women pay both financially and emotionally for these choices. Both men and women are victims of DV (although overwhelmingly women) and this is not their fault, nor should they be held accountable for their partner's behaviour.
I am still not sure of your point and how any of this relates to feminism.
