I agree with you but despite all those options available to women all a man has to do is move across statelines and yay, no child support, no responsibility, no worries...at least for him. That said, for the very reason that men are denied what I call 'second choice' I support men taking care of their own contraception. Both sexes get first choice 'Do I want to sleep with this person." Only women get second choice "Huh, wtf do I do now that I am pregnant?" Men are denied that. All the more reason for a dude to be sure he wont impregnate anyone he doesn't want to.

If you have seen one dude trapped into fatherhood you have seen too many (I am not saying this happens all the time or often, but seeing it once was enough for me). So Sally McBarChick doesn't believe I had the contraceptive polymer stuff? Fine, I don't trust that she isn't carry Gonaherpasyphalitis. Also, I am sure as heck not going to believe her when she says, "Sure, I took the pill, uh, yeah, every day." Screw that noise.
tl;dr sex has far too many expensive complications to take anyone's word for their contraceptive use - outside of a longterm, committed relationship.
