Here are two intelligent ladies going on and on about women who become pregnant under coercive circumstances.
Amy: Your best bet is not to sleep with themCrucial questions that neither one seems capable of addressing are:
- Why are we here? and
- How does your answer to #1 drive your approach to sexuality?
The point to be made here, in terms of attacking the general problem, is that neglecting the root causes of issues is the modern approach to generating a "self-licking ice cream cone" situation where the problem can be maintained indefinitely. Expanded. Books, conferences, careers.
Amy: I just want it to be fairAmy, fa(re|ir) is what you pay to ride a bus. Manhood is about more than stand-up urination and upper body strength. If a boy is getting busy with a woman not his wife, with whom he's not fully ready to enjoy the consequences and the pleasure, then a man he's certainly not.
Amy and Helen, your seeming disinterest in even considering marriage and faith as important inputs to the discussion is symptomatic of societal decline. Let me help:
He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?--Micah 6:8One only reason this problem seems so intractable is that you haven't started where the solutions begin. ;)
