As someone with a privileged upbringing but a dysfunctional family, thank you. I personally decided to be kinder to myself and recognise that while helpful, wealth isn't everything, and it's OK to have feelings (I'm sensitive too, Polly!)
Luckily, that realisation allowed me to develop a much stronger empathy for people with backgrounds different than mine - an empathy I'd tried to look for with structural analyses, but only actually found after moving on from them.
I wish some time was spent discussing what it would mean for the baby to be raised in these circumstances. I don't think there's anything wrong with the LW as a person, but given how much this is about him, I hope she has the right priorities. I hope the LW finds it in herself to make the best decision for everyone (potentially) involved.

@saythatscool Considering Mr. Rogers is a half-German like me, he'd probably tell you to fuck right off. You are probably North American and raised on Hollywood, so I'll let you know there's been quite a bit going on in Europe since the 1930s.
I'd love to jump on the "men are bad at teh sex" bandwagon but truth is I can't even find my own. No excuses for the clit, though.
