Also you left out the parts where I talked about valuing fatherhood. Though, since you raised the objection, do you deny that fathers walk out on families in far greater numbers than do mothers?
I have been thinking about this. I do deny that fathers walk out on families in far greater numbers than do mothers.
There are plenty of women who have children and then decide that they don't want to be mothers. Since you made the unsubstantiated claim that fathers walk out "far greater numbers", it is your job to back that up with fact... but I would guess that the number of mothers who decide leave their children is equivalent to the number of fathers.
There are two differences between men and women in this regard, and both of them have more to do with our social/political system than any inherent difference between men and women.
1. Women have far more options. They can choose an abortion. They can put the baby up for adoption. There are even "baby safe zones", that a mother can leave a baby without question. Men don't have these options... if the mother chooses to have the baby, the men don't have any options.
2. Society gives much more support to mothers who are having difficulty with parenting.
I don't accept the idea that women are inherently better parents, or more committed to their children than men. The fact that you are making this dubious claim kind of proves my point.
