I feel like death. How the fuck did I manage to get the plague. Will someone please come over and make me food? I feel like I’m going to faint every time I move my head, so cooking is not very safe. Also, will someone please tell me what I’ve done to deserve such misery? Have I hurt someone? I’ve talked to maybe 10 people in the past two weeks…
So I foolishly decided to read this article, as well as the response article on the same site.. And then I started reading comments. And now I want to just slap everyone in the world.
Stop fucking talking about privileges and disadvantages. No one has it better. Everyone has something to be fucking upset about, so how about we address the fucking issues instead of throwing shit at each other like monkeys! Some things are just fucking wrong and we need to change them. Stop talking about who gets raped and debating the ridiculously poor statistics we have. Instead, how about we focus on fucking stopping rapists. How about we teach all of our children to not be violent little shits? How about we teach our children that they can have any dream they want. Girls and boys alike can be astronauts, teachers, interior decorators, police officers, physicists, actors, writers, fashion designers, or any of the billion things that we employ ourselves with. We need to fucking learn already that there is no shame or crime in raising children instead of being a CEO. Nor is there any crime in doing both. And lastly, there is no crime in deciding what to do with your own body. In cases of pregnancy, the discussion should be solely between the parties involved, and perhaps a trained medical professional who can objectively assess risk. Furthermore, if the impregnated party decides to keep the child while the other biological contribution decides they want no part of it, it would do them well not to blame that party. It takes two to have sex and two to take preventative measures, therefore it takes two to support the life that occurs from this. The decision to never have children, is also one that should not be criticized by anyone because that is a very personal decision that can be made by anyone. This person though, should be aware that they made this decision, and take steps to avoid accidental pregnancy (whether this be a wide variety of birth control, vasectomy, or a combination of condoms and birth control - your partner should also be aware of your decision and decide what is best for them.)
I tried to cover a lot of the bases of child-bearing/rearing issues, but of course the list is possibly incomplete.
Back to my point.
People. Stop fucking squabbling about the little shit. How about we work to fix society? Stop hurting one another, stop forcing others to do things they don’t want to do, stop belittling one another. Instead, how about we start teaching our children and each other how let one another live peacefully. Start considering the opinions of others and accepting them as those of others. It is very hard to change someone’s opinion. So don’t start firing shots, take a deep breath, and know that both opinions are valid even if they disagree.
It’s not that hard. We just have to do it instead of writing ridiculous articles and lists to be shitty to one another. Don’t be the person who needs to one up someone else because you have it “worse”. Everyone has their own shit to deal with and none of it can be compared.
