It is no joke TBR. The first case was Hermesmann v. Seyer (State ex rel. Hermesmann v. Seyer 847 P.2d 1273 (Kan. 1993). There is a Wikipedia article on this case at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermesmann_v._Seyer
There are numerous cases TBR. Here is one from 2012 about a Phoenix man who had sex with a 20-year-old woman at the age of 14 now owes thousands of dollars in back child support for a child he never knew existed.
Then there was the infamous Louisiana case where a woman used the contents of a used condom to impregnate herself, never told the man, gave birth, then sued for child support and won. That's a real class act of a woman.
@Stefy. I will dignify your poorly spelled ad-hominem comment by stating that such ridiculous legal outcomes would never happen in the 19th century, or even during the first 50 years of the 20th century before our current wave of modern feminism. I personally challenge you to prove otherwise by siting an example of such a case outcome that dates before 1970. Thus, the tragic and almost comical outcome of these court cases has everything to do with the scourge of debauchery that is modern feminism. My poll, however, provided for alternative opinions/choices of attribution for the asinine outcome of such cases. Just imagine if the roles were reversed. A 30 year old man rapes an underage girl who gets pregnant. The man is then granted sole custody of the child and is granted child support which the 16 year old girl must pay to the 30 year old male rapist. Do you support that Stefy? No, you would be screaming and ranting like a banshee for sure! This is the classic hypocrisy of feminism; an agenda that disgusts me and should be destroyed.
Let me take this opportunity to get something straight: AS A FEMINIST, I believe the woman should be punished for abusing a minor and the boy should receive custody (whether or not he wants to put the child up for adoption is his choice). Any person who commits such a crime should not be responsible for a child.
@Sophia13 I think most people including you and I agree strongly that rapists should not be given custody of children. That being said, as a feminist, do you have a theory as to why the courts seem to have lost their minds on this one?
@cludwig: I assume the woman probably told the court that the boy assaulted HER, and since males are victims of this kind of crime so rarely, the court most likely believed her. I do believe the baby should be taken care of, but at least by someone who would make a suitable parent. That is definitely not the woman, and if the boy wishes not to take such a responsibility, the child should be put up for adoption.
