Mentu put up an outstanding post earlier this week on why he chose to get a vasectomy. Predictably it drew the standard smug. While the standard traditional response to the great violence being done to marriage (including innocent men and children) is at best a shrug, when an individual man elects not to sign up for the chance to be kicked out of his kids’ lives there is hell to pay. Why won’t he man up and marry those sluts! The predictable cry goes out. If only the smug brigade had the same outrage when Christian leaders express hostility for biblical marriage. In the smug brigade’s defense, their feminist overlords tend to make their lives very uncomfortable when they get out of line.
As a literary work, I especially appreciated the duality of the married with kids hoax. Mentu played the hoax on the clinic, and the church and state played the hoax on the real father. Brilliant.
