"Dave Chappelle on Abortion (thoughts?)"


          

I think this joke went over a lot of people's heads. Is Dave Chappelle secretly a conservative?

At first glance, yes, but he twists it at 1:12 by arguing that if a women can abort/abandon her kid lethally, then a man should also be able to abandon his kid by choosing not to pay child support if the baby is born.

He twists it AGAIN at the end by asking the audience to reflect: "If I'm wrong, then perhaps WE'RE wrong… figure that shit our for yourselves."

He is likening child abandonment to abortion. Both sides are in the wrong according to Chappelle.

It's a wonderfully layered joke.

You won't see me in Drake posts trolling
You won't see me making critical Drake posts
I just accept that his music is not FOR me and that some people are really into it
Despite my opinion...and that's okay
Why do ya'll wake up mad about Dave Chappelle?

His points seems pretty obvious.

Women should have the option and choice to abort. Its 100% their decision. If they decide to keep, the man should have the choice of whether to be financially responsible or not.

Why are folks confused?

Why are the two issues being brought up alongside each other in the first place? Are we bargaining? "Y'all can have abortions as long as we don't have to be financially responsible for the consequences of impregnating someone" or something to that effect?

Don't you see that's what the majority of posters here believe??

And certainly Dave finds it hilarious to cause that reaction.

2)And this statement is wrong

Per Chappelle's bit, abortion should be a women's choice. men should zip it on the issue. The 'bargaining' coming into play is in regards to a mother CHOOSING to have a baby.

Saying women should have the right to decide what happens to their bodies is decent. It's an acknowledgment of basic human rights. Great job, Dave Chapelle.

Trying to tie that basic human right to the issue of child support, and saying stuff "my money, my choice" makes him sound like a run of the mill MRA that doesn't quite understand that "not having to pay for shit" isn't a human right.

By comparing child abandonment to abortion he is arguing that BOTH sides are morally wrong.

"If I'm wrong, then perhaps WE'RE wrong… figure that shit our for yourselves."

The joke is on anyone who applauded him initially.

over what happens post ejaculation.

If you actually wanted to have a child and they decide to terminate the pregnancy (a right that needs to be protected) there's not really much you can do about it besides be mad and stop associating with that person/go make another baby with someone else who actually wants one.

If you don't want a child and they decide to give birth/not give up the child for adoption (whether due to their own choice or familial pressure), welp you fucked up and have to come up off that money/time for at least 18 years

that is another legal hoop jumping process the requires paternity tests and court orders

it has to be pursued... not everyone is pursuing... not all who pursue are women...

and like all the other legal nonsense going on these past weeks, it is about a type of control

taking choices away from the most vulnerable...

and punishing those with the financial means to be single parents by shaming them in other ways

"If I'm wrong, then perhaps WE'RE wrong… figure that shit our for yourselves."

Translation: If you think he's WRONG for not wanting to pay child support, then perhaps a mother is also wrong for not wanting to keep her kid.

Morally, he is likening child abandonment to abortion.

The joke is on the pro-choice people who initially applauded the first part of his joke.
