If every woman thought that then that’s the end of humanity
I’m not the anon, just saw this on the childfree tag but I’m in 100% agreement with them to the point they easily COULD have been me, and you know what? Yeah, if every woman ever was opposed to having children, humanity would eventually die out. Personally, I don’t think that would even be a bad thing seeing as how all we’ve really accomplished for anyone but ourselves is destroying the planet, but not to worry, the vast majority is still obsessed with babies and reproduction and that’s not likely to change so you can sleep at night ;)
This person sounds like a sexist who doesn’t think things through at all. Notice how their response is gendered, and seems to ignore the fact that a person with a penis is just as involved in the occurrence of reproduction. If they didn’t want to sound like typical sexists who try to guilt women* for not conforming to oppressive gender roles, they would’ve said, “If everyone thought that then…” Whether or not they intended this, their gendered response does contribute to the harmful cultural narrative of double standards and shitty expectations and blame placed mostly on women* when it comes to anything on children.
Humanity has fucked the planet and other humans since the start. This is an incredibly flawed species that continuously causes suffering, and usually doesn’t care. I wouldn’t weep for the end of humanity. I can’t add another member of this species to the population with good conscience, which is the greatest reason I decided a long time ago to never be pregnant. If we were talking about Homo sapiens evolving into a greater sub species that doesn’t have the same problems, then maybe I’d give a fuck.
But like it’s been said, we’re at no danger for such a drastic decline in the birth rate. What a joke.
