    Did the court actually make that ruling or was it just the states position? I thought it was just the state in question taking that position

    Tbh, the child support in Sweden is nowhere close to that of America. Just about anyone can manage the child support in Sweden. Average is about 180€ for child support I believe.

    The same goes the other way round.

    The one doing the deceiving is at fault, and as such is responsible. And yes, I do consider it rape since the conditions of intercourse were involuntary, and had the partner been aware of these conditions, then the partner would have rejected intercourse. Which is... Rape.
    i dont think its fair to call it rape. maybe some kind of fraud.
    As for point two: They had an official document in which both parties agreed that the male would be nothing more than a sperm donor. Who cares if they save some money by not using a test-tube?
    well it seems a bit silly but if theres procedures in place they must be followed.

    I imagine if you're propositioned you'll think about it. Would you have the same thought process while making out?

    Point one: Scamming someone into sexual intercourse under false pretenses is probably generally accepted to be rape, right?
    Point two: What exactly are the reasons for the test-tube procedure to be absolutely mandatory? Are they even absolutely mandatory? And... Wha..? If I remember correctly, the man in this situation demanded time with the child as he considered himself the father. This being unreasonable in itself, the couple then pretty much determined that, as a father, the donor doesn't just have benefits, but also obligations. Which makes perfect sense. You can't demand a child and then not take care of it.

    The procedures in place were followed by the man. The women were the ones who fucked up.

    Well, if we could come up with a way to make it easy to tell when someone has decieved you, I would be all for civil law suites being made against a woman. It's honestly similiar to someone who knows they got AIDS but knowlingly lies about it and still have unprotected sex, an awful thing to do and it is at least here illegal.

    What I don't agree with though is that we men should just be able to say "I don't want any part of this" if an accident happens. We know an accident can occur and we should therefor take our responsibility if it happens. Just like the woman does.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    While it's true that I advocate personal responsibility, it's just that. I advocate personal responsibility. I do NOT advocate having obligations you've made clear you don't want thrust upon you.

    When a woman keeps a pregnancy and the father does not want it, there is no sound reason he should be held liable for her decision.
    it was his decision to create the situation in the first place. its his liability, if you will.

    Do you support the court's position that he should pay child support because the lesbian couple didn't go through the proper channels to have IVF done?
    not exactly, but its entirely the people involveds' fault.

    No-one, including you, has any rights! Deal with it.

    We've given ourselves rights, and I see no reason why I should feel like I need to follow any of your rights. If you have rights, I have the right to ignore your rights!

    that would be the intercourse itself, not pregnancy.

    i imagine it being done by a physician ensures that theres a way to prove beyond a doubt it was purely a donation.

    Cool. So murder is perfectly justified.
    Is it a rule that you have to be rude and sarcastic in every conversation here?

    Men as it is have no rights in court, this empowers women to abuse their power and ruin lives. Laws cause the problem and they should fix it.
    You make a risk assesment, you willingly take the risk and then you cry faul when shit goes wrong. You presume every case is a fraud, when it's very likely that it is far more common with accidential pregnencies, and in those cases both the man and the woman have a responsibility.

    Of course this exists, because too many scumbags flee responsibility. The problem with that is they still flee responsibility while the normal guys get abused.

    did you read what i wrote or are you just writing meaningless stuff quoting my post for no reason?

    well if they agreed both why can one decide then? if both are responsible, why can only one have a say? and i don´t know if you know this but having sex doesn´t automaticaly mean you want to have a baby, that´s why mankind invented kondoms and stuff

    you talked about how sexist it was that women get a say whether or not to carry children. thats only because they have uteruses. having sex means you decided to take the risk of having a baby.

    No, it was THEIR decision to have sex. It was HER decision to keep the baby. It should not be her decision to force him to pay for that.

    not exactly, but its entirely the people involveds' fault.
    No, it's the women's fault.

    let me get this straight, she wanted the child, he didn´t and still her burden is bigger than his? i get it that he has rather few love for the child but shouldnt her love for the wanted child be way greater than the burden??

    And you should probably read aloud to yourself what you write before you hit "reply".

    Where you get a sperm donation is immaterial to where it's done.

    In fact, there's no sound reason it should be a requirement to have the procedure done in a clinic since it's obviously not necessary for successful conception.

    There's literally no sound reason this man should be held liable for child support when an agreement was signed that he would not be.

    He has no presence in this kid's life, no rights to the kid... no nothing to the kid.
