Let’s play a game, dear readers.
What is the most ridiculously fucked up thing about this story?
a) The truly astounding levels of entitlement displayed by the bio-douche involved
b) The fact this even made it to court
c) How the bio-douche’s utterly scary entitlement complex is only heightened by the fact the pregnant woman has said she doesn’t intend to abort, thus meaning he wants to legally force her to give up custody of an apparently wanted child
d) The fact that news.com.au seriously thought that “Desperate father asks court to prevent abortion” (or, in the URL, “Father’s desperate abortion fear”) wasin any wayan appropriate headline?
I’m going with D, personally. Protip, patriarchy: subtext needs more sub.
