Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially announced, over ten years later, a love child with his housekeeper.
I don’t know why any kid is called a love child. Usually a love child is hidden from the other half-brothers and sisters, has a lower life style, limited access to the father and a different family name.
I have never read a plantation owner happily announcing the birth of a love child with his favorite slave.
A love child is a lad or gal shun, ostracized and unwanted by almost everyone except his real mother. A love child always calls for an “I am sorry” from the father.
Arnold Schwarzenegger said “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.”
Wow! No comfort there for the love child, he is the reason for the apology.
It must be the love child’s fault that Arnold’s strong sperms gave him existence inside his mother’s wombs causing so much stress to his family.
Somehow for Arnold to say “I take full responsibility” is a misdemeanor. I have not yet seen paparazzi taking pictures of Arnold together with his love child sharing good times at Disneyland. So where has he taken responsibility for his “illicit” affair.
In the media psychologists, psychiatrists and family philosophers have a field day giving their expert opinion about the situation which the Schwarzenegger family is enduring.
Not one says or is positive about the love child having a relationship with his half sisters and brother, have a big birthday bash at daddy’s house, have his father pick him after school or say that he is almost related to the Kennedy by marriage.
A love child is branded from birth with different rules. He is marginalized from any “normal” family set up. Society treats him as a clinical case whose presence should be ablated like a malignant tumor.
The love child is a bastard, the child with a different status from his siblings, the one creating debate on simple subjects like “should we buy him a Christmas present.”
Public opinion bullies his privacy by showing picture of his house and of his mother with Arnold at her side. The media thinks that privacy and respect is not mentioning his name and blurring his facial feature on photos.
Does that mean that a love child does not attend school, is void of friends and social life? Maybe, it does not matter to these “good” people. They call him love child but cannot stop treating him like a bastard.
So, you know now that I do not think much of Arnold. I do not like the way he has robbed, for the past ten years, his child’s identity. Anyone deserves to say look this is my father and that’s my mother. Yes, my birth created some family problems but I do exist and do have importance.
