abadabba: Dont worry parents, non breeders will non breed themselves out of the population in a few generations.
xanadian: Mugato: Wow, that is one obnoxious biatch.Having kids will do that to you.
UberDave: Unless I'm missing it, the mom's name is Dustin Rowles. That's a weird name for a mom.
servlet: Congratulations, you've mastered one of the most basic biological processes. Pardon me while I stop the world to celebrate how amazing you are because you figured out how to procreate.I mean, I like kids and all, but can we seriously stop this ridiculous sense of superiority that some (admittedly not most) parents have just because they worked out how to produce offspring?
Marcus Aurelius: How about this: if you've never raised a child, STFU.
Crewmannumber6: But you have no compunction call people 'breeders'
namegoeshere: Am I the only one who has ever left a restaraunt with a toddler who couldn't handle it? That one pisses me off. No I will not put up wil my kid acting like a little monster in public, "family friendly" or not. This chick does not speak for all of us.
StarSys: I hate obnoxious parents that rage about how difficult their lives are. My wife and I spent $50,000 trying to have that chance and it still didn't work. STFU and be happy with what you have.
Crewmannumber6: PanicMan: I refuse to accept the term "non-breeder" in any way, shape, or form.But you have no compunction call people 'breeders'
Mugato: Wow, that is one obnoxious biatch.
Capo Del Bandito: It's mostly her making assumptions on behalf of the non-breeders.
towatchoverme: And the ones who are parents post more pics of the dogs than the kids.
Carn: That's why we go out, dumbass. We just paid $7 plus (a very generous) tip for a crappy grilled cheese sandwich so we wouldn't have to deal with that mess.The person who wrote that should have her head smashed in with a ball-peen hammer.
Bruised Martini: She sounds like a bad parent.
Notabunny: fta 4. I Hate the "You Don't Understand" Parents - But, here's the thing: You don't understand.and4. I Hate the "You Don't Understand" Parents - But, here's the thing: You don't understand.Oh, and4. I Hate the "You Don't Understand" Parents - But, here's the thing: You don't understand.
Crewmannumber6: neversubmit: It's not that you aren't a breeder, it's that you are an asshole.FTFYourselfChoosing to live your life wrapped in self absorption doesn't make you a better person.

Mercutio74: Full disclosure, I'm a parent of a 4 yr old girl.The article makes some good points, but number 9 is bullshiat. Whenever my precious snowflake is doing something that isn't very precious and is annoying/hurting/generally shiat disturbing others and she doesn't respond to my chairbourne correction, I get up and deal with her.... usually by crouching down in front of her, telling her I want to talk to her, explaining why what she's doing isn't acceptable and threatening her with a time out if she continues. If that doesn't take care of it, then I follow through with the time out unless she behaves.Why do I do this? Because I want my chair-based words of correction to farking mean something. My sister in law shrieks at her children and they don't give a fark because they know it doesn't mean anything. On the other hand, the 9 times out of 10 when I calmly tell her to stop doing something stupid and other parents tell me how well behaved she is, it's not because she's awesome (which she is, I have to be honest) it's because she knows that there are consistent and knowable consequences to misbehaving and it's more fun to find something else to get into.We have plenty of ways to make our kids behave without thrashing them or inducing some kind of cruelty... if your kid is misbehaving it's probably because you don't follow through on your correction of their behaviour and they know you're full of shiat.
mortimer_ford: If you're not posting pictures of your children or pets, you're probably posting pictures of your meals. Or your choice of alcoholic beverages.I don't really want to see pictures of anything short of a two headed eagle or some good arson.
someonelse: Mugato: Wow, that is one obnoxious biatch.Think about why you assumed the author was female. Then feel bad about yourself.
Disclaimer: I am of the Precious Snowflake generation and shouldn't really talk
tricycleracer: someonelse: Mugato: Wow, that is one obnoxious biatch.Think about why you assumed the author was female. Then feel bad about yourself.Right there in the header: "drolly written by a mother ".
Egoy3k: 9. What Really Annoys Me Is When Parents Yell at their Kids But Never Get Out of Their Chair and Deal with the Kid - Well, how are we supposed to "deal with it"? We yelled at the kid, didn't we? We can't spank them because you childless hippie liberals have taken that away from us.Go piss up a rope.
Coco LaFemme: When my sister and I were real little, if either of us acted out of turn in public, my parents would yank our butts out of wherever we were and we'd go straight home. It only happened to me twice that I can remember, and I'm sure if I ask my mom, she'll say it was a lot more than that. They never hit us, or even spanked us, never yelled and screamed at us, but we knew - if they take us out somewhere, anywhere....and they tell us to mind our manners, be quiet, sit still, any of that....we had better do it, no questions asked.
phaseolus: Capo Del Bandito: It's mostly her making assumptions on behalf of the non-breeders.Let's face it -- just as there are obnoxious parents and bratty kids here and there, there's a certain segment of the childless population whose sense of superiority gets a little overweening at times. That's who the author's responding to.You'll see them in this very thread, and you can always recognize them by their specialized vocabulary. I'm tempted to type out a word list, here, but I don't really need to.
