    Again with the "not accepting responsibility". I do not take responsibility for my ex and his actions. That is up to him. He doesn't need me to tell him how to behave, that is his choice.

    I have taken responsibility, along with every other custodial single parent or repartnered parent, by raising my DS.

    That doesn't make him any less of a sperm donor. It is what it is.

    Feminism isn't about giving women an excuse to blame men for their problems. Its about recognising that there is a real social problem that disadvantages women. Unfortunately some men do not take responsiblity for their children and childcare. Its a social problem that men are not seen as equally responsible for child raising.

    Perhaps in private but Not on bub hub they don't (from what I've seen). I hear plenty of "wah wah wah deadbeat dad" and not much "hmm. Perhaps I shouldn't have had a kid to a person who is xyz."

    I have NEVER heard a man ask another man who is looking after his kids. It's assumed the mother and never questioned. It sh1ts me no end! .
    This is so true!!

    I might start a separate and more focused thread on this.

    I can just see the thread now "Hi bubhubbers, I have realised that I shouldn't have had a child with FOB, please can I have your advice - how do I find a time machine and go back and reverse the situation? Thanks"

    Wondering whether we had a child with someone doesn't change the past. Most parents who procreated with a deadbeat seek help when the ex screws them over.

    I will never regret my choice. I would never wish I hadn't had DS.

    I will continue to seek help when my ex harms us. Always.

    I think you are being incredibly nasty to the single parents of this forum.

    On why single parents don't put their most personal self reflections on a public forum?
    Or why single parents dont post on a forum asking for time travel instruction?

    I'm baffled.
