"women: Not Wanting Kids Is Entirely Normal"


  

          

mainly posting cause i thought the first couple of paragraphs were hilarious
----
In 2008, Nebraska decriminalized child abandonment. The move was part of a "safe haven" law designed to address increased rates of infanticide in the state. Like other safe haven laws, parents in Nebraska who felt unprepared to care for their babies could drop them off at a designated location without fear of arrest and prosecution. But legislators made a major logistical error: They failed to implement an age limitation for dropped-off children.

Within just weeks of the law passing, parents started dropping off their kids. But here's the rub: None of them were infants. A couple of months in, 36 children had been left in state hospitals and police stations. Twenty-two of the children were over 13 years old. A 51-year-old grandmother dropped off a 12-year-old boy. One father dropped off his entire family -- nine children from ages one to 17. Others drove from neighboring states to drop off their children once they heard that they could abandon them without repercussion.

The Nebraska state government, realizing the tremendous mistake it had made, held a special session of the legislature to rewrite the law in order to add an age limitation. Governor Dave Heineman said the change would "put the focus back on the original intent of these laws, which is saving newborn babies and exempting a parent from prosecution for child abandonment. It should also prevent those outside the state from bringing their children to Nebraska in an attempt to secure services."

On November 21, 2008, the last day that the safe haven law was in effect for children of all ages, a mother from Yolo County, California, drove over 1,200 miles to the Kimball County Hospital in Nebraska where she left her 14-year-old son.

i mean technically she cant disown you before the drop off, right
i'd have refused to cross the border into nebraska


and what was up with the father who dropped off 9 kids? (1yr - 17yrs old?)

im sure some of these women want to have kids- and can have kids (and end up having them - even among transgendered women. )
you also have women who cannot have kids but do want to have kids
but this really has nothing to do with anything in this post.

we are talking about an increasing number of women who do not want to have kids
there's nothing here about natural and unnatural, its all about making informed choice

y'all can take your value judgements elsewhere.

who is talking about wanting to have kids being unnatural?
i believe i said not wanting to have kids is as natural as wanting to have kids- because these are decisions one makes.
y'all the ones out here trying to put value judgements to a simple statement - and to imply that there's only one way or the unnatural way
its 2014, women have choice nowadays- its a good thing.

and i dont understand the 'i forget im on okp' sentence either. maybe you could explain.

reply 12.

>i believe i said not wanting to have kids is as natural as
>wanting to have kids- because these are decisions one makes.

okay and we clearly disagree

>y'all the ones out here trying to put value judgements to a
>simple statement - and to imply that there's only one way or
>the unnatural way

a value judgment to me is "this is bad/wrong" or "this is good/right"
saying that most (heterosexual) people of a certain age want to have kids one day, that's just my optimistic outlook on life

>its 2014, women have choice nowadays- its a good thing.

yay, but where did I say it was bad for a woman to choose to not have kids?

>and i dont understand the 'i forget im on okp' sentence
>either. maybe you could explain.

if you need it explained...

it is natural that many of them have no desire to reproduce
its population control
a lotta kids born to parents who aint really want them
but had them bc its "natural" and many children have suffered bc of it
i wish more ppl listened to that lil voice that says "nah chill babies will fuck up my whole groove"

anyway,
i was watching this ugandan comedian this morning, anne kasiime (she's getting really big, even my mom put in plug for her)
this hilarious skit where her husband is complaining about the # of kids they have
basically saying, look, we got 9, maybe its time to stop, school fees... blabla
and she's like, wait, with your genes and my genes....
i need to increase my chances of getting a quality child
so... im not going to stop until i have an obama.

i can just imagine a situation where like 9 kids later, one is like, wtf, *drops off kids at kiddropoffzone

i think its funny,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSpNA4WVmVk

*apart from some fuckupness of some aspects of the skit

Basically, it was cool to smash but taking care of the kids was too much. HE DID THE SHIT 9 TIMES THO then decided he didn't want them. That's borderline souless to dropoff 9 kids that you fostered. He's telling them it's time for a family vacation while they sleep in the car not knowing their lives will be permanently altered.

Get yourself a vasectomy if you want to smash without the risk of children.
