Is it Actually Better to Be a Deadbeat Dad?

Contemporary society as a whole has seemingly migrated towards a more hedonistic approach as of late. People are doing without things like religion, monogamy, and children. I am here to say those are all well and good, except for the last part. Men, do yourself and your future children a favor and don’t wrap it up, even if you don’t plan on raising children anytime soon.

It often seems like the most successful people quite frequently come from households where a father-figure was never present. LeBron James, Lance Armstrong, and pretty much any rapper or Instagram model are perfect examples of this. Even arguably the most famous person on the fucking planet besides the Pope, Justin Bieber, made it out of the mean streets of Canada for one reason and one reason only, he didn’t have a father.

My argument is, that by not possessing a decent dad to be there for them, these children were thankfully deprived of being coddled throughout their childhood. Kids who were baby’d throughout their entire lives almost never grow up to be anything besides huge Betas.

People who grow up in loving households with both parents who are constantly up their asses and bitching at them to do shit like “fold their clothes” or “take out the trash” almost never actually have any real struggle for anything, and therefore never learn how to make it on their own. Contradictorily, people who grow up in broken homes have the luxury of their parents not being around and in effect not giving a shit what they do, which results in them quickly learning some very important life lessons. This allows these children to pursue whatever path they see fit, rapper, artist, etc.. instead of having your parents always pushing you to apply to colleges or whatever it is that good parents do.

Abandoning your kid is a lot like playing roulette.. if it lands on Red, you’ve got a successful athlete or musician.. but if it lands on black, your kids pretty much a guaranteed criminal. Now, I’m not a Gambling man, but I like those odds.

In conclusion.. the best dad is no dad at all.
