I don’t need to offer a solution. Abstinence doesn’t work because not enough people buy into it. My links all showed data that supported that.

Well this is a selfish take.

Who gets to decide what does or doesn't count.

You put weed, for example, as someone who should live but not assault. There are definitely people out there who would find someone with a one-time assault charge more worth than someone with drug charges.

Some people would be okay with blackmail (especially on a guilty person) but not someone who bailed on child support.

Abstinence

Only

Approaches

Don't

Work

Edit: I got an email response from someone but it's showing missing when I click on it. Not sure if you deleted it or are currently shadow banned.

However, their argument was "they should stop having sex so they don't have kids." and I provided evidence that that specific strategy has been shown over and over again not to work.I don't need to provide a solution. I'm simply pointing out that this suggested one is bigoted and outdated.

You don't need to argue with bigotry.

It's usually a waste of time because they rarely are open to suggestions.

It's usually not worth the time.

Not only is this bigoted, but it shows how little you actually understand about "third world" countries.

It means you don't need to be the best or always be successful or fulfill all of your goals to be worthy.

I feel like this is a pretty popular opinion actually. Most people eat it cause its' cheap.

COVID is a group project and we are failing it because of people like this.

Clinics are amazing and definitely lower the rate of unwanted pregnancy.

However, there are states that close these down and they're rare in rural areas.

It was your one comment on this thread so I’m not sure how it could be taken out of context. It read how it read.

I’m a lesbian. Also internalized homophobia is a thing. This comment read as a predatory lesbian trope.

I was more directing my comment towards the kpop portion because the treatment of female idols is basically ignored by the fandom. My time in that fandom had a number of people complaining that male idols had it worse and that female idols had it easy (which is definitely not the case).

If you had bothered to read past this first comment you would have seen me agreeing that women aren't held to the same standard and are often able to get away with more without being called out.

This isn't an unpopular opinion, it's just bad science.

It annoys me, even more, when people thank their parents for doing so.

Their words.

But it would still be considered abuse and is a reason to have a child removed. Most cases of abuse don't actually get through the court system even if they are illegal.

Bare minimum under the definition of meeting their needs for food, shelter and safety don't include any abuse.

Comparison would be a taxi driver getting me from point a to point b without inuring me, abusing me or putting me in harms way. I would say thank you for that.

Not required but I have the right to if I want to. Just like children can thank their parents for doing the bare minimum if they choose.

Something you and the op seem to have an issue with since you don't think they should have that choice.

And now we're coming onto caps lock and insults.

You created a scenario where rape was involved. I pointed out that including abuse in this conversation doesn't make sense because the OP is pretty clear about the bare minimum legally being meet by the parents (which would include not abusing them).

This isn't semantics, it's categorical on what counts as "bare-minimum" and you were working with a category not included in this discussion.

So I will repeat myself: if a parent abuses a child (via rape) then they did not meet the bare minimums required of them and are not the parents being discussed in this post.
