Spearheader: Put single moms in whorehouses so they can “pay their debts to society.”

Evil single mom neglecting her kids
Evil single mom neglecting her kids

I haven’t been keeping up with The Spearhead of late, but a commenter here drew my attention to the sort of timeless wisdom I’ve been missing from the Spearhead gang.

In this comment, DW3 offered his thoughts on how to combat the evils of single motherhood. The solution involves putting single moms in workhouses. To be more specific, in sex-workhouses — that is, whorehouses.

I think there should be whorehouses for single mothers to work at, to pay their debts to society. Such a system would kill several birds with one stone.

There would be safe and legal access to prostitution, presumably reducing the drugs and violence associated with the way the trade is currently practiced.

It would allow single mothers to learn the value of getting up and getting to work on time, so that they might aspire to a different career.

It would assist traditional families in steering their daughters and nieces and sisters in a different direction, with a very visible and well-known consequence to ignoring the families’ advice.

It would allow single mothers to give back for all the resources they consume, and ideally it could replace child support on some sort of sliding scale of pay for the workers. Perhaps starting at $50 paid per client, less $20 per child more than 1. That way, a single mother with 3 kids could still get $10, and more than that would be inclined to try to hide off the grid the way divorced and separated fathers now have to.

I have my own opinions about whether choice single mothers cause more harm than divorcees, but for this proposal I suppose that they should be treated differently. Divorced women would surrender their children to the father and have to pay half their whorehouse earnings to support the family, however they would get the full $50 regardless of the number of kids.

Perhaps the whorehouses could charge $80 for providing their services, with a modest 20% discount for married men who proved they had a family to support.

DW3 prefaced this comment with a line in which he notes that this idea might be a bit much even for the regular denizens of The Spearhead. But no one actually took issue with his proposals. Indeed, Lyn87 (a Spearhead regular I’ve written about before) noted that he’d had similar thoughts on the matter himself.

Since men are responsible to pay for the children that women they have sex with choose to bear (that is the stark legal reality – every child that is born is born due to the SOLE choice of the mother), then it stands to reason that:

Money paid to support a child = the obligation a man incurs by having sex with the mother.

Since having sex is enough to legally entitle a woman to a man’s money if a pregnancy ensues and she elects to give birth, shouldn’t taking a man’s money legally entitle him to have sex with the mother if he has not already done so?

Fair is fair, right?

My Modest Proposal: a single-mother-by-choice who takes public assistance should be required by law (as men’s financial obligations are), to have sex with any man who can produce a 1040 showing that he paid taxes in the past 12 months (at least once for each child).

The Spearhead: As reliably awful as stomach flu.

My not-an-ex has a Cthulhu related tattoo, forgive me for not remembering wtf the reference is! This thread is so getting emailed to zir, with a note to save it for shits and giggles after zir 8am Monday morning class (as if Mondays didn’t suck enough already!)

In other words, thanks for all the fish…I mean laughs.

I feel like this squirrel’s reaction to the leopard really gets at the kind of visceral “get the fuck away from me!” reaction that most people, especially women, have to reading about the make single mothers into comfort women plan.

Nice! Now you’re capable of metaphors… keep this up! Don’t lose your fie and stamina now… you have a long way to go yet….

I have a firm grasp of metaphors, but you don’t seem to be capable of making coherent arguments, and think that throwing around mindless “zingers” is a reasonable substitute thereof. You haven’t even remotely addressed anything substantial of what I have said.

“You haven’t even remotely addressed anything substantial of what I have said.”

“…addressed anything substantial of what I have said.”

“…anything substantial of what I have said”

“…anything substantial…I said”

Well there’s your problem, trying saying something substantial and maybe someone will bother actually addressing it; until such time as that occurs, we’ll continue to “throw around mindless ‘zingers'”.

*throws a zinger at katz* Pretty sure that’s an alcoholic drink at some restaurant or another, so enjoy your zinger!

Oh and Kiwi Girl’s link isn’t nearly as “what is seen cannot be unseen” as some things around here, I think the Cthulhu pony is kind of cute actually. I think fish are cute though, so I’m not inclined to have a “tentacles mean not cute” type reaction.

I’m sorry; I replied to your entries on this thread in exactly the spirit with which you made them, and if you are bothered by that, maybe it’s time to do some soul-searching.

@Alessandro Masi –we know. Most of us hit that point a while back. I remember the first time I broke down crying reading this site. I’m pretty sure everybody remembers the first time rage and grief and sheer disbelief at the hatred we mock got to them, the first time they realized how bad it truly is. We mock because it’s a way to strike back and reduce the power of those who hate. We mock because it’s a way to deal with how awful it is.

Does anyone remember that one former Twitter handle called DrunkLovecraft? It’s unfortunately defunct now, but it was really funny. The story was that Lovecraft got re-animated and still thinks like he did in the past, but became addicted to alcohol. The entire Twitter was basically short drunken rants written in Lovecraft’s style. Some quotes include:

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the ability of the human mind to obliterate all its contents with sweet, sweet gin.

When confronted by the fungi from Yuggoth, try and lick one. They’ll still take your brain, but you’ll be high as a motherfucker.

If you think God moves in mysterious ways, you’ve never seen Yog-Sothoth take the dance floor.

And probably my favorite:

Today a cocker spaniel humped my leg, and I immediately thought of August Derleth.

@ Sgt Gormless, you went on at length, it wasn’t one badly phrased sentence. Besides, you’ve never made any substantive or friendly or funny comments here, they’re always off.

@titianblue, thanks for that link, the article was fascinating! (memo to self, check height of stepson’s heels, he still manages to look taller’n me and I’m 5′ 4″ …)

That shoe at the top gives a whole new meaning to a “fuck me!” shoe, ’cause that’s what I said when I saw that humungous heel.

@doomkitt3n, yes, I’ve seen that tea party kitteh before. 🙂 And yes, I’d love to see pics of your kitties!

I thought I was saying something substantial, but I guess I wasn’t communicating it properly. Kristine said that no man goes to a prostitute for the sex, which is not only a blanket generalization, but she’s also presuming to know the intentions of men better than men themselves, basically womansplaining. I guess if it were sex a man wanted, he’d just go up to someone at a bar and ask her out; only a raging misogynist would have any problem doing just that.

they completely ignore the fact that our species tends to mate in pairs.

I suspect their entire view of women is something like this.

Only thing is, Grumbles, her statement? Read an awful lot like there was something there.

I mean, sure, to make it an absolute is a little weird. But if what you’re seeking is just an orgasm, your right hand is there for you. And if what you’re seeking is intimacy, there’s tons of ways to look for that. There is a bit of sex-work-negativity in there, but the idea that a man who seeks to control women would get off a little on the ‘owning’ involved in sex work is hardly controversial.

But you don’t want to deal with that. And you can’t just say something the way a person arguing in good faith would, like ‘I can see that in this case, but I think it’s a little sex-work-negative to say men ONLY seek prostitutes for control.’

As is the time every time you comment, you pounced. Because that’s modus operandi. I can’t think of a single thread where you haven’t struck as if you were convinced you had found weakness and needed to chase it down.

It is that combativeness that tells us your nature. And to respond to you at length and with substance is just to invite a quick ‘overanalyze much’ from you as you flit onward.

But you don’t fool us.

In all seriousness, is it because you just can’t stand the thought that there’s one place on the internet where people don’t agree with you? Because if so, that’s just sad.

(Also confused. There are lots of places where people don’t agree with you. I guess most of them would have banned you for being tedious by now, though.)
