A few days back, I was watching TV where residents of a low income locality in Lahore were protesting against high electricity bills and were ripping them off in protest. Most people protested against paying for a utility (electricity) which is not available to them half the time, but there is one old lady who refuse to pay the bills because she has too many children. Her exact words were, “I have six daughters and 4 sons, I can barely feed them, the state should pay my electricity bill so that I can at least feed my children.”
Let me make it very clear that I have no respect for any electricity providing unit; be it WAPDA, KESC or IESC, but I thought her request was really strange. I mean why should the state pay your utility bills because you have been careless and produced far too many off springs? While I was lamenting about this to my colleague, she pointed out this story where a 29 year old man in United States has fathered 21 children with 11 different women. When asked why he had so many children, he responded with the wise & scholarly reply: “it just happened.”
Yes, It just happened – 21 times.
I am just a little confused though, if this was his level of intellect, how did he score with 11 women, had unprotected sex with them and managed to produce 21 children in 11 years time?
The very wise Mr. Desmond Hatchett (baby daddy of 21 children to date) makes minimum wage and his lawyer believes that the state of Tennessee has had to step in because Hatchett can possibly not support all his children. At least the amma ji from Lahore was only asking for free electricity but this fellow has gone on a massive procreation spree (He boasted of fathering four children by different women in the same year.) in a country like US with better health care facilities and more outreach and awareness programs and still is shameless enough to ask the state to step in to take care of the children he carelessly brought in the world!!!
I seriously can’t believe that there are women stupid enough to have unprotected sex with a man who has numerous partners at the same time.
