agreed, up until the interesting thought, because like you said... if he had sex he would compromise everthing that makes him the way he is, so it would completly change Rorschach's character... I don't think for the better (not trying to be rude if it sounds that way)
Not rude at all.
I agree, I wouldn’t like what that would mean for Rorschach, as it would completely go against the essence of what he is and what he strove to be, and I do think its impossible-
But I think its an interesting idea to consider on a theoretical level, as to what Rorschach’s idea of parenting would be considering the parenting he received and his feelings toward victimized children. I wonder what Rorschach would be like if forced to interact with a child that was not a victim.
I don't think he would know how to treat a child because he has no model to base his actions on (other than that of his mother, who was not a good parent)
I wonder, if in the event that he did get a woman pregnant, would he walk out like his Dad did?
Something tells me that he would persuade the woman to have an abortion, or send the child to an adoption agency.
(by the way, I don't have the text at hand and have been read it in a while, so don't flame me if his dad didn't walk out)
In terms of the ending itself, I like it, and I think that peace will never truly be possible because no one trusts each other anymore, and the government feels safer behind nuclear weapons, and besides, if one gives up their weapons, what proof do they have that the other side will.
Even if there was no more conventional war, I think there would still be Cold War, because of the fear that someone may be harboring the secrets of the squid. I think that people would end up blaming others for the coming of the squid.
