I imagine that being married, breeding, mortgage-paying heterosexuals must feel a bit like being slowly squeezed to death in a vice these days.
Declining incomes and a rising cost of living means constant unrelieved financial pressure, comparing today's reality to your parents' lives and your own expectations means a constant sense of disappointment and inferiority, the lies on social media make those feelings worse, the pressure to maintain a perfect home and raise perfect children means constant overwork and exhaustion, the shitty parenting methods in vogue guarantees that your kids will disappoint you, etc.
And of course it's totally not socially acceptable to say what's really bothering you - that you don't adore your kids and that you resent giving up the person you were for their sake. So there's the misery of living a lie, on top of everything else.

I think having children in your 30s helps a bit so you don’t feel like a lol of your youth was stolen by your child. Also making the man be a partner instead of sole bread winner. Kids are sick? Great let’s see who’s turn it is to stay home or who can manage it today based on work obligations.
I love that my boss is an aware mother that claims to have gone into motherhood, 3 kids, with her eyes wide open. When her kids are sick, she and her husband will strategize together. Aparently they try not to view on career as more important than another.
The hottest guy in my floor, is this 31 year old father with another on the way. He is soft spoken, workouts 4 times a week, eats healthy, has a normal social life, and a ass to die for (former soccer player). Just all around a perfect specimen of a man, all the gays and fraus would do him if single. He really lights up when taking about his daughter.

A big part of the problem is that we tell women they can have high powered careers and then all of a sudden the reality of having kids hits and they're totally unprepared for how much time and energy are actually needed.
Some of them are okay with outsourcing the whole thing, hiring nannies and all that, but most women seem to want to actually be there for the kids and are torn between this notion of "women should be in high power jobs" and a corporate environment that makes no time for kids.
The luckier ones are married to men who also have high powered careers and they stop working, and nothing is more dangerous than a mother with degrees from Yale and Harvard Law School attempting to channel those skills into being a full time mom.

It seems to me that the bigger issue is, why do gay men resent straight women so much? Is it because you are like us (share common interests, etc.) and you see in us what you hate in yourselves? Do you consciously or subconsciously want to be women, and hate us for having the lives and straight men you truly desire? A combination of both? There is pathology at play here, and I'd just like to know if you understand why you hate us so.

In this day and age, having children is a choice. I have no sympathy for parents (female OR male) who whine about “how hard it is” to raise children. No one forced you to have them.
It’s particularly annoying to hear complaining from the parents of twins or triplets. Uh, when you forked over hundreds of thousands of dollars for fertility treatments (or got your insurance company to do it), did you read the fine print about the likelihood of multiples?

Having kids is egocentric - the end. There is absolutely no reason other than narcissism to choose to have a kid. That - and the stupidity of getting pregnant by accident which is scarily how most kids are conceived even in 2019. It’s a crime,
Long acting birth control and cheap, easily available abortion should be encouraged. But even though it’s a feminist cause, it’s being blocked by the crazy number of women who are “pro-life” because they had their baby and think it’s the most important thing they’ve done.

The worst are the ones who drag their whole family into poverty with that extra twat dropping they just had to have. The oldest winds up being a caretaker and having no resources, youth or future because bitch mom ,who had no life skills, couldn't use contraception . Later on everyone wonders why the older one, after years of being a caretaker for mentally ill bitch moms kids, feels resentful and unhappy. While the younger ones wind up fine. They get their freedom! The older one has to give up their hopes , dreams and sense of freedom In the prime years of their lives but isn't allowed any anger.They wind up a living fucking corpse. At least parents made a choice, the sibling whose life was wrecked made no choice and was forced into a role they despise and now they have fucking nothing. Too many women think they are devoid of any responsibility over considering how many kids to bring into this earth and with what resources.

A selfless act is one where you get absolutely nothing out of it. That is not why people have kids. People choose to have kids and put themselves through the challenges and suffering and changing diapers and sacrifice of time because they want to be loved and remembered and feel their life has a purpose. Having and raising children is not a selfless act. It’s a sacrifice in order to receive - or hope to achieve - something in return. You want to make a sacrifice - go ahead. But don’t pretend like it’s a selfless act - that is the whole point of this thread.

Oh for God's sake, people don't just have children out of narcissism and to explain their failed careers! Okay, that's part of the reason, but people also have children because they want to love and be loved unconditionally.
Of course they don't realize that the "unconditional love" becomes very conditional indeed as the kid develops a mind of its own and stops trusting the parents completely, so the fact is, that parenthood actually involves experiencing unconditional love and having it withdrawn. If a person really wants unconditional love and trust that lasts a lifetime, they need a dog.

They're old enough to realize that other adults don't love unconditionally, they either love extremely conditionally or not at all, and they always always always put themselves first. They think a child might give them the love and forgiveness they never had from their parents, friends, or lovers, and forgive them everything and accept them just the way they are. And I suppose kids do, for a little while. Of course they grow up to be just as self-centered as anyone else.

I've yet to encounter straights who have that attitude toward their children who *didn't* choose to have a child per year until they were done. Notice how even that cartoon features two kids who are, at most, two years apart in age.
If you have one child and wait several years before you have the next one, you'll be much better off in the long run. My mother had only me, and she never lost her identity or her job, and she had plenty of time to shower and put on nice clothes.
Also, double-wide strollers are an abomination. Just the need for them shows how stupid straights are about children. The only time a double-wide should ever be necessary is if a couple is cursed with twins.
