There's a world of difference between reading a person's emails and demanding that the child you helped create be tested for paternity.
Personally, I think my emails are private. I leave the screen up a lot, and I suppose my boyfriend could go through them if he wanted, but he never has. There's nothing to hide, but privacy is also just expected in our house. That said, I would become somewhat defensive if he told me he didn't trust me and asked to read my emails. I can't guarantee I would dump him or not, but I might consider it.
A paternity test makes women defensive because it's an offensive move. It's saying not that you have fears but that you actively distrust your wife or girlfriend. If my boyfriend asked for a paternity test, he might get it, but it would probably be at the cost of the relationship.
Somehow, I think though that I am overthinking this and this is just meant to be an incendiary topic to get us all crazy and amuse you. Nothing I say is really going to make a difference to you because you don't truly want to understand.
Yahoo! Answers is hardly what I would consider to be a representative group. Just because some people in some sections said certain things does not mean you can realistically make generalizations about women.
However, if you just want to make statements that have no real basis, you are well on your way.
