Publikwerks: "Must be hard on you, knowing that the years are ticking away, your friends all getting married and all the while your uterus is slowly shriveling away, drying up, becoming totally worthless. "-- Eric Cartman


What kind of monster would---

Yes, let the anger come! Strike me down while you can! But it won't make your dried-up ovaries any more fertile!

taurusowner: LordZorch: Logical outcome of cheap, reliable, birth control is that people that don't want kids won't have them.

Also, keep you smelly little disease & snot factories to yourself - the world is not your babysitter...

Watch that number drop A LOT more when a non surgical/non condom form of birth control is invented for men. I'd bet that a healthy percentage of children born both inside and out of marriage is due to females giving the impression they're on birth control and either legitimately forgetting/messing up or deliberately deceiving the male. The line for a male birth control pill/shot is gonna be miles long.


And that's my theory on why one has not been invented yet.  The government needs a continual replenishment in order to maintain what they have.  My friend "forgot" her bc a few years ago and ended up with twins.  The dad couldn't do anything but just laugh unbelievably about it.

Just more proof I was born a decade too soon.  Biggest problem I had when dating (other than my hideous looks and poor social skills) was finding a woman who would even entertain the idea of not having kids.  Now, they are everywhere.

What's scary are the women who start talking about names for the children on your second date.  They aren't looking for a husband, they are looking for a sperm donor and a paycheck.

Hey, don't want kids...don't have them. Mine are great, healthy, well-behaved....it's all good.

In a generation's time, my philosophy, outlook, political leanings, and genetics will carry over into the future.

You'll only leave a granite monument, or an ash filled urn. To each his own.

Your choices are just as valid as mine.

It makes some of us think you have high emotional nurturing needs.
and for the larger dogs,  we think you are  F**ing them.

That's not true.  I'll also leave many thousands of dollars in consumer debt.

"it's okay to love your pets as long as you don't love your pets."

Seriously, your comments say more about your skewed view of women in general than they do about anything else.  You sound fat.  And lonely.

GALILEO's DAUGHTER:

the Snark about big dog was unfair but not serious.

The fact that a surrogate animal, in place of an infant is using up
the healthiest fertile years of a woman's life IS

SUICIDE VIA PUPPY DOG.

Are women so deluded by media, that they believe just as easy or safe to have children in their 30's ?

And If your are over the reproductive years and single by all means get a CANINE.
And for the record I think people who have medium/large dogs and live in an apartment are
being A***Oles to the canine,  they need to room to roam not, a place to shiat the carpet.

About 6 years ago I went on a date with a young lady that had kids on our third date she was at my place and looked in my empty spare room and said "All my kids can fit in here" and then talked about how she wanted 4 more kids. Yowza.

Pill?

Eh, maybe. 

Shot?

You're not getting a needle anywhere near my unit.

I'd question the claim that you have any guarantee that your kids will carry anything other than your genes into the future, and that goes double, triple, and so forth, for grandkids, great grandkids, and so on. People aren't political copies of their parents, after all. (And thank goodness for that, or nothing would ever change.)

I'd also point out that memes don't require genes. If I want to spread my ideas around, I just need to make good arguments for them to other people.

You'll only leave a granite monument, or an ash filled urn. To each his own.

I would never say that your choices are invalid, but I'm getting a bit of a feeling that you don't quite feel that mine are. Believe me, I think that it's awesome that you think of your children as a legacy and I honestly hope that works out for you, but that kind of legacy doesn't really interest me.

A woman with a cat or a small dog is a furiously waving red flag, men.
Avoid at all costs.

alpacainabox: As a woman that lives alone with her pug and has no plans for children.. am I the only person that doesn't feel like it fills a "child-sized" hole? I've had dogs all my life and it just feels comfortable to come home to one/take care of one. Dogs aren't children; they are animals and should be treated like one. My pug is crate trained and gets plenty of walks and doggy day care once a week, since I work/go to school full time. If you begin to let your dog interfere with your social/love life, then you're really not treating it like a dog anymore.



I'm totally with you.  A healthy, well-trained dog doesn't need to be attended like a baby-- it doesn't replace having a child.

I adopted a racing dog to have a running partner and roommate.  The dog understands where to go for biological breaks, doesn't make noise after dark and is WAY more cooperative than any baby I've met.

Good.

The population is too damn high as it is.

(Did I just basically repeat two memes there?)

Anyhow, women across the world should proceed to stop having so damn many kids. Pope, I'm gonna need you to address this with your followers, too.

heh, I see so many of my friends (and hear of other's stories) that once they get married, they get a dog (or cat, but usually a dog of some sort) and then they post a picture of their dog EVERY day on FB, etc...Okay, almost every day.

And then once they have kids, of course the kids get posted to FB and then they start hating the fact that they have a dog.

Example (a status from a friend):

I am THISCLOSE to opening up the door and letting my dog run away. A 4 yr old dog should not be pooping in the house, eating trash, eating 1500 pacifiers, eating anything we accidentally leave on the counter ( see a pattern here?), running away, growling at oldest son (2 years old), and have more expensive haircuts than me! I am going to SCREAM!!!!


Me, being single, see even some single women doing the whole dog (animal) thing.  Getting a dog and being all about that dog, etc...and then wondering why no one is dating them.  *shrugs*

/one day I'll be married and may have to deal with this but for now...no pets!
//so nice to be free like that

Are you so stupid that you think a woman's sole purpose is reproduction?

SUICIDE VIA PUPPY DOG.

Are women so deluded by media, that they believe just as easy or safe to have children in their 30's ?


Up until age 35, they can safely get pregnant and have children.  After 35, the risks for birth defects increase.  Halle Berry just had a child recently, and she's in her 40s.

And If your are over the reproductive years and single by all means get a CANINE.

Halle Berry says "fark you"

And for the record I think people who have medium/large dogs and live in an apartment are
being A***Oles to the canine,  they need to room to roam not, a place to shiat the carpet.


Possibly, but as long as they get out routinely for walks, they should be okay.
