By Latanya Hare –
Many times, I’ve heard individuals say that “a woman loses value every time she gets pregnant.” “Her body does not look the same”, such as stretch marks and weight gain and other ‘meaningful things’ that may attract men, to name a few. We can all understand the view that a man can get 10 different women pregnant at one time. On the other hand, women can only get pregnant by 1 man at a time.
In my translation, a man, unless he has all the resources, can create 10 broken homes at one time, and women cannot. If a man says he values certain qualities in a woman, by having multiple kids, she loses that value. Who am I to argue?
Some men have a heightened sense of self that they do not even know when they are not valuable. Some men do not care if you cook, clean, make accomplishments, and how well you take care of yourself, your education, finances, home life and yes, the children. They care more about; how good you look and what you have to offer physically, and that is how they determine your value.
I guess it’s not smart for a man with money to be monogamous because they can have any women they want, which is correct. I bet, that same man, with his mental health, is full of anger and resentment when he comes to the realisation that the women, he surrounded himself with only want him for his money.
If you cannot see past, how a woman looks by your own beliefs of measured value of a woman. Women won’t see past, how deep your pockets are. What happens if you lose it all? No matter the money, nobody or any normal person would want a man with 10 baby mothers with numerous amounts of children up for keeps.
I like to think the reason why we have so many lost souls in this world is because of the small minds of today’s society. You want to bring children into this world but do not want to take responsibility. At the same time, downgrading your women, not knowing if she’s even fit to be a mother or even a partner.
