The news has given more publicity to Octomom than it’ll ever give to someone who achieved something that actually requires effort, and she’s even fielding offers for a TV reality show. I have no intention of trying to defend her actions. According to my personal moral compass, having more children than you can really nurture and guide (as well as provide for) is just plain wrong.
But here’s a question: how many men have fathered eight or more kids they’re taking even less responsibility for than Octomom’s taking with hers? When will one of these guys get singled out to be the source of a thousand headlines, so we can all revel in our moral superiority at them?
