Baby Daddy?

man_reading_newspaper_clip_150

There was a letter in the paper today that set me off. It was to an advice columnist – (although I like the British term “agony column” so much better.)

The writer was relating how her unmarried daughter with two children had moved in. Then there was the baby daddy.

Baby daddy?

A male human being who impregnates a female human being without taking responsibility is a baby daddy?

Apparently we now assign cutesy titles to bad behavior.

I have better titles.

How about irresponsible? How about incompetent?

How about loser?
