Today's OPP wants to make a life-changing decision. This twenty-something year old girl wants to become a single mom before she’s 30 and is willing to go to extreme lengths to make that dream a reality. Artificial insemination is an option, but she’s not opposed to going to bars and picking a father there.
Slacker and Steve think it’s great that she has a good job to support children were she to have any, but they also think she’s completely ill-prepared when she’s willing to go to bars and seek out a random guy. Steve thinks that Mariah (our OPP) is coming at this from the “it’s better to raise a kid on my own because I can do it how I want to.” But he’s not convinced she’s going at it in the best way.
What do you think?
I think Mariah is being a little ridiculous. I don’t see why any woman would want to force a child upon themselves just because they’re running out of time (she has two years until her deadline). But to put the cherry on top is the fact that she’s planning on utilizing the bar scene to find a rando to father her child; a child she will never tell them about. I’d like to know more of her reasoning behind wanting a child so badly that she won’t wait to have it with someone she loves or, at least, holds affection for.
