“Spurglar: a woman who steals sperm to ‘accidentally’ fall pregnant”.
Thank you Cosmopolitan for coming up with a new word to define this act. Sure the number of women that are seeking education and careers are getting higher (very thankful to be in that category) and yes when this happens the age that women AND men become parents also has a tendency to also be higher. But does this mean that women should be stealing sperm to get pregnant?
Being a single parent definitely isn’t a new concept nor is it an impossible task but should this be the aim that men or women should be seeking? This article was limited to women that had stolen sperm but men can be just as guilty of this too. In my single days, I went on a date with a guy that I met on an online dating site and he felt completely comfortable in telling me that he had poked holes in the condoms that he and his ex-wife had used because he had been ready to be a father. He was also very confused when I declined a second date with him.
Having a child, whether you are an active participant in that child’s life or not should be something that you are able to decide on prior to the act if it can be avoided. It’s 2013 and most of the literate world is aware of birth control methods, which assists with the number of unplanned pregnancies. I know that unplanned pregnancies still do occur for some smart and intelligent people, but seriously, if you have sex without some form of birth control, you are taking a risk of fertilizing an egg or contracting an STI (sexually transmitted infection) bottom line. And if you are engaging in what you think is protected sex and someone hoodwinks you into being a parent that just – fucks up the situation, quite frankly.
We should not be making up some cute little terminology for something that is just awful. A sperm burglar is not something that girls should hope to become one day, even in jest. And men should not be hoping or aiming to be an ovary-napper like the goof ball who admitted that on a first and last date.
If you can’t talk about what you want, be that a child or a committed relationship then guess what – you aren’t ready for it. And for the guys that are happy that they were tricked into being fathers – nut up, clearly you were ready for it and were living in denial, thinking that being a father would crimp your style or hinder your lifestyle.See some words or phrases that you don't understand?
