But you would think that womoen would place the most important one, "who" they let deposit their sperm inside her, at a VERY high standard. Unfortunately many don't.....

Biology doesn't treat women equally. And the reproductive responsibility isn't distributed equally either.
Where's the double standard? Any of those choices, it's solely the woman who gets blamed and treated poorly by society...

While the man, irregardless of what the woman chooses to do, gets clapped on the back for 'being a man's man', and can easily evade having any responsibility or punishment...

Heck, the man can be the one to push for the abortion and society doesn't think twice about it...But if the woman goes through with it, society calls her the killer...If she doesn't go through with it, she's trying to 'trap the man into a relationship' or 'is doing it cause she's money hungry and wants child support' from the man...

The man is treated as the victim throughout the whole thing and given hero worship. While the woman is the one treated like dirt and is blamed for the man's actions?

Men have the freedom to create as many babies as they want to with as many women as they wish and society clapping them on the back for being 'studly'...But the woman is 'the irresponsible one' in the way society reacts and treats her no matter which decision she makes that's best for her...
