Hi Guys,
  Those who've met me on the abortion thread are probably not surprised to find out I'm childfree. In fact I am anti IVF or any fertility technologies, pro-choice and fully support euthanasia. (The world is overpopulated.) I've also been known to JOKE that abortion should be legal up to the first 18 YEARS.
  Having said this I love kids and get a complete kick out of giving them back to their weary overworked parents at the end of a quick sitter session.
  No seriously now. I reckon it's high time men and women were more openly 'allowed' to be childfree and considered responsible adults. Childfree adults take their responsibility into other areas of life. We do good in the world in our own way.
   When I said, I love kids - it's true. I work with them in many ways. Mostly, angsty teens, troubled youths, criminal youths, physically disabled teens to adults and mentally disabled teens to adults. I understand them for some reason.
  Childfree is a valid choice and doesn't reflect a set opinion about children. It's all about, 'when I envision my life, what do I see?' And following that dream. If, like Morgan, it's DEATH, then I say 'SPREAD THE DARK WORD' til ya given freedom from the mortal coil. Do the good dark work as a responsible childfree death lover, dark lover and compassionate beauty of the shadows.
  For me, I dunno - there's still time for kids if I change my vision, my dreams, my goals. I'm open. At this stage I'm happy childfree with no plan to change that status. If I change I'll be happy with it. If I remain childfree, I'll also be happy.
  I definitely get pissed off with the boring, straight world of 'me, my partner, my kids, my dog, my white picket fence, my boring dress sense, my extreme right wing morals, my family values, my mortgage, my pointless job, my ability to believe whatever I'm told...etc' It's enough to make ya wanna kill yrself.
  I am proud of those who break the mould and follow themselves!

You know how us smokers are reviled in this society of late?

I suggest something further - child-free supermarkets, restaurants and everything else....

With all of the bleating about second-hand smoke I think we would all have a good case. What about all of the rampant germs constantly spewing forth from the germ-incubators which are children? What about the noise pollution? What about the damn smells?

Why do breeders feel it is perfectly acceptable to let their little precious brats run amok in a store yet I can no longer smoke there? Their little, germ ridden hands touch everything....

Oh hell yeah!  I am SO there!  I would pack up and move tomorrow to any place on this planet just to be able to shop in a bratfree supermarket!

I'm completely the opposite. I believe children are the same as adults - some I get along with, some not so much and some are bastards.
  I reckon Western societies treat parents disgustingly - if a baby/child cries people look at the mum/dad as if they've committed murder. Adults are so intollerant of children and try to confine them to the little boxes called Home/Car/School. We were all once children.
  I stopped smoking cigarrettes not so long ago. Just before I stopped all indoor places that are public or where any individual is paid to work became smokefree by law. Even as a smoker I supported this because I didn't see any reason to encourage a pointless addiction. Furthermore, maybe I wouldn't have become an addict if it had not been so socially acceptable. The thought of paying heaps of money to be addicted to something that could possibly get my legs amputated, and me on respiration for years of what would be a worthless life really really upset me. I'd like to see tobacco changed from legal to decriminalised. ie if ya wanna smoke it then ya gonna need ta grow yr own.
  Sorry smokers but as a non-spawner I say, kids OK, smokes DO IT IN PRIVATE.

I don't think that look has to do with that so much as intolerance.  I do not smoke, and I don't do kids.  As far as I'm concerned, if that parent wants to listen to their brat scream its damned head off fine, but I shouldn't have to be subjected to that kind of torture when I'm trying to eat my dinner, or shop in peace.  It's not my brat, why the hell should I have to listen to it?

I don't have as much of a problem with well behaved kids, but when you have some 4 year old brat running full tilt screaming through the aisle, or sitting in a cart screaming bloody murder because he can't have a piece of candy, then that just pisses me off.  That scream goes right through your bones and it can explode your head.

I still think ball gags should be legalized for children.  If you can't shut that brat up, then I will... you can remove the gag when I'm gone.

lol....

I can tolerate the well bahaved ones for short durations, but we refer to the loud and obnoxious ones as various food products who haven't been cooked for long enough.

Crying isn't misbehaving. Do you feel errant when you are in tears?
  The obnoxious little bastards that have no respect and no discipline definitely piss me off. My mate had a part time cafe job when she moved back to the city after living in the country. She said, this little brat said, 'Give me a chocolate milkshake!'. My mate replied, 'May I have! Try again.' The mother took incident with this and called for the manager. My mate said, 'I dont respond to rudeness from anyone, not adults, and particularly not rude, obnoxious children.' The manager backed her in full. More people should do this!
  Hopefully, that's one mother who got taught to teach her child manners. But, that's the point. The fault was that of the parent. Why did that brat think it could talk like that to an adult? Simple, the parent was not teaching respect and manners. I place the blame squarely with the parent.

So many "parents" (and I use that term loosely) these days are simply afraid to even raise their voice in public when scolding a child for fear of someone calling the authorities for "child abuse". Even so much as a light smack on a kids arm these days could land a well meaning parent in jail. So, instead, they often let them run amok and they LEARN to be spoiled little brats because they KNOW they can get their way without fear of reprisal. They're even taught at a VERY young age in school to report a parent for yelling at them as it can be considered "emotional abuse".

Give me a fucking break! The reason I learned to be behave and not to act out is because if I did, I'd get a good thwack upside the behind. Some of the shit my parents did to me, these days, could have easily landed them in jail. I'm sure that can be said for many of the older members of this forum.

The point is, that coddled parents create coddled, spoiled kids.

Good for your mate, Sabrinna. I'm amazed that the manager stood up for him. More than likely, he would have been fired on the spot here.

To quote Leilah:

'The point is, that coddled parents create coddled, spoiled kids.'

Too true!  The entitlement mentality and self-centered-ness of modern society/breeders crosses generations.  

I'm talking of those of us who are at least 30 (and haven't spawned), it seems after that things started to break down, and within the last 5-10 years it's gotten damned near intolerable.

To wit; yes, it's true, we were all children once, but we were *not* allowed to yell/scream/carry on in public, run around undisciplined like monkeys on crack, nor order adults around/backtalk them, or in general be disrespectful to others.  To do so warranted immediate action, be it a swat on the behind or removal from the premises to ensure other's peace and enjoyment.  (*Sorely* lacking in today's coddle-the-child, 'oh, we're going to have to take a time-out!' society).

Our parents would *not* put up with that shit from us.  We were not 'Goldenchild',' or 'Princess', or 'Spayshul Little Prince' to our parents.  We were raised not to think the sun rose and set out of our little asses, and we were taught to respect our elders.  

We learned what 'NO!' meant.  We didn't keep whining that obnoxious little 'Unh-unh-unh' sound, or 'fuss quietly®', or have a 'meltdown' thinking they'd give in.  We didn't expect everything we demanded to be handed to us, be it good grades, jobs, or rewards like these little snots nowadays think they deserve.  Their parents are doing them a great disservice; that when these spoiled little shits get out into the 'real world' and find out that professors, employers, and cops don't give a shit about their precious little feelings, or when they fuck up that there are consequences to their actions, they're going to get a massive dose of reality shoved up their pampered backside.

I will not tolerate brats in public, or their rude handlers.  I've gotten into it on more than one occasion with self-important 'world revolves around me' soccer moms in their Stupid Useless Vehicles.  

Gah.  I hate brats and breeders.
