i Quoting Hipster Sly:" I think the mere difference in one action being done out of desperation to keep an SO and the other ... [snip!] ... out of being a vindictive child who didn't get their way. That's how I view it. I understand what you're getting at however."
I look at that desperation as a form of vindictiveness though. In order to stop a man from moving on with his life, they attempt to trap him with a baby. Just as mean.
I feel for the OP - if she is true - because I felt that way as a teenager. While I didn't end up pregnant, I could have easily. The baby wasn't my "goal" of spitefulness, but the sex was...so ultimately, the outcome would have been the same.
I just think its hilarious how people act like at 17, she should be grown enough not to have irrational emotions that make her make dumb decisions. I guarantee some of those same posters in this thread have made dumb decisions that led to a child at a later date in their life.
