A $50,000, or mere $ 8,000 monthly child support judgment is the greatest career move for an uneducated young woman..Successful male athletes and singers get easily ruined by female predators empowered by feminist child support laws. Getting pregnant by such a man is like winning the jackpot.
Highly paid basketball and football stars, boxers, rap singers are easy prey. They are high testosterone, impulsive, quick acting successful males, usually with more brawns then brains.
We will point out numerous legal traps devised by the feminist sexual trade union in collaboration with religious zealots.
Fathering out-of-wedlock kids has become commonplace among athletes, many of whom seem oblivious to the legal, financial and emotional consequences
This shocking 5 part article is from 1998’s Sport Illustrated. Today, nothing has changed for the better. Probably athletes are probably a little less naïve by now.
Paternity can be an expensive proposition. In several states the baseline amount for a man who is proved to have fathered a child is roughly 20% of his income as support until the child turns 18. Considerations such as time spent with the child and the income of the mother are factored into a complex equation and can slightly reduce or increase the award.
A high earning athlete who has to pay to 7
children women 7 times 20% of his gross income certainly faces a dilemma.
there are women who hunt pro athletes in the hope of becoming pregnant and filing paternity suits to make an income," says Pat Richie, the chaplain for the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. "I’d say that teams probably have two or three women per year who are purposely looking for this."
Certainly there have been false charges made against athletes 4
End of career, end of big income
Add to that the short term nature of his dwindling income, and we understand how fading fame also brings about arrests for now un-payable child support judgments that exceed the poor ex-athlete’s waning gross income.
High-wage earners such as athletes present courts with a dilemma: Should judges follow the 20% guideline, which would mean a windfall to mothers and children? Or should support payments cover only the basic needs of the children, depriving the youngsters of their dads’ standard of living? Many judges have compromised by limiting support—sometimes at $10,000 per month per child—regardless of the father’s income, a decision that has sparked debate among family-law attorneys. 2
Even US$ 10.000 is un-payable for a simple man whose sports career is over. It is also cruel and unusual punishment to demand he depredate his savings until poverty, to pay such support.
In some cases, however, even a player earning millions can fail to meet his obligations. In 1995 slugger Kevin Mitchell, now with the Oakland Athletics, was making $4.5 million a year. The next year he declared bankruptcy, in part because he was supporting four children by four women.
Athletes’ out-of-wedlock kids can end up in poverty if their fathers are cut or retire before the children turn 18. "Often, you need to tell these women to bank as much money as they can because it’s going to be a very short payday," says Schwartz, the California paternity lawyer. "I’m handling a case involving an NBA player who had been making more than $2 million a year and this year wasn’t picked up. The mother was getting more than $5,000 a month, and suddenly we’re talking about $1,000 to $1,500. That’s only because, through good management, he still has some money. Some of these guys will be pumping gas, if they’re lucky." 6
Does baby consume $10,000 per month?
Nobody questions the sanity and necessity of awarding
a child of an often poor mom US$ 50,000.- or even 3,000.- per month. If that same woman had an honest, simple, working husband, $ 500 after tax income would feed an entire family, not just one child.
Child support to support mom’s new lover and their children
- Child support should cover the basic needs of a child, not luxury, much less a luxurious life for mom and her new lover. If mom wants lots of money, have her make the effort to treat a man so he voluntarily parts with his money. Not just lie about birth control.
Pay child support, never see the child
- It gets worse. In our modern matriarchy, even men who pay US$ 10.000 monthly in child support have no practically enforceable rights to actually meet and see their children.
Kemp apparently was also upset because he was unable to spend time with some of his children. "For [his last] two years [in Seattle] he had a really bad problem," according to Osuna, who says that she and Kemp are still friends, though they’re no longer romantically involved. "I know it takes two to tango, but he met some bad women. [Shawn told me that] they said, ‘Marry me, or you don’t see your kid, and I will cause hell in your life.’ He told them, ‘Listen, I pay you all child support. I want to see my children.’ " Kemp declined to comment for this story. 2
- Moms are free to spend the child support money as they please, for themselves, children of other men, anything. No accountability. No need to spend the money on the payer’s child.
- Many of these women mothers are one night stands, virtual strangers to the athlete who is required to support them and their families
Even a blow job can prove expensive, because women have the legal right to artificially inseminate themselves with sperm thus gathered (considered a "gift" by some courts), The successful inseminator will be rewarded with give rise to multi-million child support windfall.German tennis champion Boris Becker was in the headline for an alleged case of sperm theft. A woman once successfully sued a British man for over 100 000 Pounds in child support after she got artificially inseminated with sperm stolen from the sperm bank through a falsified signature
A woman can carry a used condom to a fertility clinic. This is another such option to entrap men who don’t carefully watch the whereabouts of their sperm. A woman that takes advantage of a drunk athlete, even to the point of raping a passed out man, gets rewarded with generous amounts of money:
*Consensual *rape of a willing but drunk woman
Another danger for the successful athlete is the inverse case, a enthusiastically consenting drunk woman pursuing the attractive athlete. The athlete might not be aware that he is liable for *rape accusations from such an enthusiastically consenting woman. And even the cautious man has to take tremendous precautions to avoid falling prey to false rape accusations. This is what happened to Brian Banks, and, in our opinion,ruined the career of boxing world champion Mike Tyson.
Irresponsible athletes at fault
Most top athletes have brawns, not brains. They are woefully unprepared to deal with the fame and money they earn. And unaware of the legal traps matriarchy prepared to ensnare them.
How can athletes feel victimized when they made the decision to have unprotected sex? "It’s a two-way street," says Elmore. "The women may be scheming, they may be an attractive nuisance, but a major part of the problem is the irresponsibility of athletes." […]
"Today’s athletes just don’t care," says Elmore. "They’re hung up on instant gratification. There’s no view of the impact that present-day decisions have on the future. There’s almost a perverse pride to it, like, Hey, that’s my kid." 4
Safe sex? HIV?
Of course, athletes wouldn’t be fending off so many paternity suits if they practiced safe sex. They can’t claim ignorance: "We get enough information from the league that it’s crazy for guys to have unprotected sex," […]
At the NFL’s rookie orientation last June, instructors gave each player a banana, with which to practice putting on a condom. Later, two HIV-positive former NFL groupies told how they seduced players. "That hit home big time," says 49ers backup quarterback Jim Druckenmiller. "[They] wanted to let everyone know that girls out there will take a chance to get pregnant. They’ll do anything, sometimes, to get some money out of you." 6
To avoid alienating MRA’s we will not delve into the issue of race of these victims of feminist exploitation. Civil rights activists could point out that the of the male victims is of one under-privileged race.
A much thornier issue is race. It’s no secret that the NBA has a higher proportion of black players (80%) than football (67%) or baseball (17%). Nor is it news that out-of-wedlock births are a persistent problem in the African-American community. 5
Richard Lapchick of Northeastern’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society doubts that sports are different from other high-paying professions. "My guess is that if FORTUNE looked at CEOs and another magazine looked at the entertainment industry, you’d see similar numbers," he says. "I think the common denominator is high-income earners." Also, Lapchick worries about viewing such an important issue in racial terms. "The public is wont to paint athletes with a broad brush every time an individual is involved," says Lapchick, "and especially when you talk about basketball and football, you’re talking about black athletes. You have the effect of reinforcing stereotypes."
High-profile white athletes have certainly had their share of paternity cases. 5
Basketball players can be targeted with extreme ease
Visibility. NBA teams carry only 12 players, and these players, most of whom are extremely tall, don’t have their faces hidden by helmets, hats or sunglasses, all of which makes them easier to spot. 5
Age of consent
Note that these successful alpha males also can fall prey to the immense complexity of age of consent laws (compounded by interstate and international travel) and thus require constant internationally versed private legal counsel for legal analysis and detectives for age and background check to avoid fake ID traps, due to strict liability crime laws.
Sophisticated and intelligent athletes like Tiger Woods escape the trap of multiple pregnancies from short term affairs, but fall prey to domestic violence, and their chivalrous failure to press charges, due to their good hearted chivalry. This cost him 200 Millions in spousal support and ruined his reputation.
It is rarely said, how such laws traumatize men psychologically, to the point of ruining their careers and teams.
The consequences of this mentality can affect athletes and their teams. Take the case of Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kemp, who is not married but who, at 28, has fathered seven children, according to Gerald Phillips, an attorney who represented him in a paternity suit filed by Charlotte Osuna, the mother of Kemp’s two-year-old daughter, Dominique. (Osuna says that Kemp told her that five other women have also borne his children.) A source with the Seattle SuperSonics told SI that Kemp’s well-publicized meltdown while playing for Seattle last year resulted primarily from the increasing pressures of paternity and child-support obligations, not a drinking problem, as was reported at the time. In the season’s final two months, Kemp missed or was late to practice five times, including three times in a seven-day stretch in April. It was then, Osuna says, that paternity-related issues weighed heavily on Kemp. "It was, like, every other day somebody was delivering a total bomb to him," she says. Kemp averaged 21.3 points and 11.0 rebounds a game before the All-Star break, but 15.1 points and 8.5 rebounds after it. The Sonics, who had hoped to return to the NBA Finals, lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Houston Rockets.
During a press conference shortly before the playoffs last year, Kemp denied charges of alcoholism and blamed his erratic behavior on unspecified "personal problems."
Don’t blame the law. Don’t blame the woman. Male victims are chivalrous, men have not learned to complain and to fight back
He did not mention his out-of-wedlock children. "It wasn’t alcohol. It was the cost of being a father to a bunch of kids," the Sonics source says. "There’s no doubt it was on his mind last year. It definitely became a drag on him, his game and eventually the whole team. He found out it was going to be real expensive being a multimillionaire NBA star with kids around the country."
Kemp apparently was also upset because he was unable to spend time with some of his children. "For [his last] two years [in Seattle] he had a really bad problem," according to Osuna, who says that she and Kemp are still friends, though they’re no longer romantically involved. "I know it takes two to tango, but he met some bad women. [Shawn told me that] they said, ‘Marry me, or you don’t see your kid, and I will cause hell in your life.’ He told them, ‘Listen, I pay you all child support. I want to see my children.’ " Kemp declined to comment for this story.
Of course it is unwise to have lots of children out of wedlock. But a rich man could afford to support 20 children with reasonable $800 per month, per child, that perfectly support a far above average life style for the majority of US children. $8000, or $ 50000 are not needed.
No reproductive choice for men
But it was the women’s choice to have the children. Quite likely the women lied about birth control. Birth control lies are an expensive fraud that is perfectly legal. Prior to feminist laws that enforce ruinous child support payments, such fraud was less profitable and less attractive. Note that women have choice to shirk responsibility by means of safe birth control, abortion, safe haven laws, adoption, while man have only one choice: pay.
Kemp’s considerable child-support obligations were among the financial stresses that precipitated his demand to be traded, according to the Seattle source. Having already borrowed $2.1 million from the Sonics in 1994, Kemp complained last season that his $3.7 million-a-year salary made him only the team’s sixth-highest-paid player. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, Seattle was unable to rework Kemp’s deal, but after he was traded, the Cavaliers immediately renegotiated his contract for $107 million over seven years, an average of $15.3 million a year.
Running back Dave Meggett of the New England Patriots is another high-profile athlete whose team became entangled in his paternity obligations. Last fall Meggett, who had fathered four out-of-wedlock children by three women, was sued for prenatal support by a fourth woman, April Estabrook, a 21-year-old dental assistant from Jupiter, Fla. After Meggett failed to respond to her support suit (he did not dispute paternity but did claim that he had never been served with the papers), Estabrook went to court seeking a default judgment against him. Because Meggett was scheduled to be in Florida for a Dec. 7 game against the Jaguars in Jacksonville, the court granted Estabrook a writ of ne exeat (literally, a "no exit" order) against Meggett, which would have prevented him from leaving the state until he posted a $25,000 bond. After being served with the writ in the Patriots’ hotel before the game, Meggett provided the money for the bond, and is negotiating terms of child support with Estabrook, according to a lawyer familiar with the case. (Meggett declined comment.)
Don Lowery, the Patriots’ vice president of public and community relations, was assigned by the team to work with Meggett on the matter. "We didn’t want to get involved in this, but this was one of our key players, who had the potential of not playing because he could be arrested," said Lowery. "It was a distraction for the organization, no question about that." 2
Support for one night stand women, their boyfriends and their children
Child-support orders are a sore subject for the athletes hit with them, not only because they mandate large payments but also because the athletes can’t control how the money is spent by the mother who receives it. "They’ll say, ‘I don’t mind paying for my kids, but I don’t want to pay for her too,’ " says Schwartz, who specializes in paternity litigation, representing plaintiffs and defendants. "Also, sometimes the woman has had a kid with another father, so the athlete says, ‘Why am I going to be supporting another child that’s not mine?’ Which, at $10,000 a month, he’s going to be doing. The law recognizes that possibility and essentially says, Too bad."
That doesn’t sit well with athletes, especially when the children are products of one-night stands and the moms—virtual strangers—are collecting five-figure monthly checks. "If the court system is going to make an athlete pay a substantial amount of money, there should be a contract for women that they can’t just take the money and spend it on whatever they want," says a San Francisco 49ers player who has one out-of-wedlock son. "You have to take care of the kid, but with the money that’s left over, the women could buy another car or have more kids."
Phillips, one of Kemp’s attorneys in the Osuna case, suggests that this happened to his client. "She thought she hit the jackpot when she discovered the pregnancy," says Phillips. "She quit her job [as a law-office manager] immediately and went after Shawn." Phillips estimates that based on Osuna’s deposition and her checking-account records, the child received only $3,000 of the first $70,000 Osuna received in support. Says Phillips, "She spent the money on gifts for her family, rent, health clubs and an automobile." 3
