I Guess Breeders Prefer This Over People Not Having Kids
I just read a very, very disturbing article over on New York Times about a mother who just let her baby boy drown because she supposedly “hated him.” Here’s the link: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/mother-lets-baby-boy-drown-admits-hated-article-1.1024833.
This woman very clearly did not want to be a parent. For whatever reason, she “hated” her baby boy. She wanted nothing to do with him or the responsibilities that came with him. They can blame it on Post-Partum if they want, but I’m not buying it. This is a very clear case of someone not wanting anything to do with their child and being a parent.
Of course, this story is hardly unique. There are parents everywhere who kill their kids because they want nothing to do with them, for whatever reason. It’s happened many times in the past, and it’s happened many times in the future. These pure acts of evil attest to the fact that yes, many people don’t like being a parent and even regret it. Of course, sometimes acts like this can be chalked up to mental illness, but it’s not a blanket statement and it can’t be used to defend everything like this that happens.
Alas, I guess with the way breeders speak of childfree individuals, it seems as though they prefer crap like this to happen over people not choosing to have kids. They speak of kids as if it’s imperative that all people have children in order to have a more fulfilling life. They turn a blind eye to all the shit parents such as the individual above who have no business having kids.
I know for a FACT I would be a shit parent because I have no desire to have a kid. I would be inattentive, apathetic, and I wouldn’t give a shit. Perhaps I wouldn’t go to the extremes this woman did (in fact I know I wouldn’t), but that doesn’t mitigate the fact I’d be a terrible parent. That said, as I mentioned, apparently breeders think being a crappy parent is better than not being a parent at all.
