DM – Three men in Tennessee have notched up a staggering 78 children by 46 different women between them – and are doing their best to squirm out of paying for a single one. Terry Turnage has 23 children with 17 different women, while Richard M. Colbert has 25 children with 18 women. But Desmond Hatchett takes the record with 30 children with 11 women. On rare occasions, they pay a few dollars to the long-suffering mothers but mostly leave the state to pick up the slack – while one eludes his responsibilities altogether thanks to a stint in prison. The latest deadbeat dad to emerge from the state is Turnage, who was summoned before a judge over child support payments for his 23 kids by 17 different women – but didn’t show up to court.
This story has been around for a bit as we’ve written about at least one of these guys, but I just don’t understand why the media only points the finger at the men. Sure, they’re the deadbeat dads of 80 kids. Sure, they rawdogged at least 46 different women then peaced out when the ho got preggers. Sure, they’re probably shitty dudes. But how as a logical society can we only blame the guys in this situation? Sounds to me like there are 46 dumbass women out there who deserve some of the blame.
According to the report, this lady’s knees buckled when she heard dude had 20 kids before her and is upset the most she’s ever received from him is 9 bucks. Seems to me she should’ve made better life decisions.
What, these women are heroes because they decided to have a shitload of kids they can’t afford? How come they weren’t on the pill or taking Plan B or forcing the dudes to wear protection? There is no way these guys are the only ones to blame. If slutty-ass tricks weren’t so down with banging everything that walks and were a little more concerned about their bodies and futures, there wouldn’t be 80 new ratty hungry southerners wandering around Tennessee wondering where their daddies are.
So yeah yeah, I get it — 80 kids by 46 women. They’re irresponsible assholes. But there’s two sides to every story. And the other side of this one is filled with hos.
