Can't have that, it's 'anti-feminist'!
DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science, a change in the balance of power between the sexes that we’ve hardly come to terms with.
Uncertainty allows mothers to select for their children the father who would be best for them. The point is that paternity was ambiguous and it was effectively up to the mother to name her child’s father, or not… Many men have, of course, ended up raising children who were not genetically their own, but really, does it matter…in making paternity conditional on a test rather than the say-so of the mother, it has removed from women a powerful instrument of choice.
Translation: "We want women to be able to say 'YOU are the sperm donor and YOU have to pay child support/whatever, and it's none of your business if I'm telling the truth. Or actually know."
Which is utter bullcrap. There's been some cases finally break into the news of men finding out the kid they've been paying child support for, or raising, were not theirs; in some of the cases the state Child Protective clowns basically say "We don't care if you're actually the father or not; finding the real one would mean us having to work, so we're just going to screw you." Kind of interesting McDonagh considers the idea of fairness or truth to be inconsequential; it's ALL supposed to be about 'empowering' females to lie if they feel like it and get away with it.
