I saw this video
on FB and I wanted to share it on my profile immediately, but then I reconsidered.
Certain persons (certain person's relatives
, that is; my own are WELL aware of this) do not know that I don't like kids, actually loathe most of them, and so I realized to share the video I'd have to hide it from view from these certain people, but y'know how tedious it can be to remember every single one of X number of people you think might get offended.
Then I thought. WHAT THE HELL. Why am I NOT
allowed to express my loathing for those little critters? Why should I suppress MY opinions and be forced to withstand babbling about kids I don't really care about that much and feel much uncomfortable being around with, withstand the constant showings of photographs and video footage of whatever they've done this time WHEN I SIMPLY DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK.
Why do people get offended if I don't show any interest in their kids, or grandchildren?
In a way I can get it: sure, I get a little offended too if I'm excited about something but everyone else is just MEHH, but then I just have to suck it up, move on
. Maybe find someone else to bubble in excitement with; I just have to accept their interests are not the same as mine. Hell, I just worked for an assignment paper with the subject of Internet language, and no'ne in my class was too interested to read about it, but I had to suck it up and do my own thing.
BUT WHY DOES THIS SUCK-IT-UP-MOVE-ON NOT
APPLY WHEN IT COMES TO KIDS?
Why is it always, "Ohh come on you can't really hate kids, everyone loves kids, you're a woman, you must want kids too at one point, your life will be meaningless without them, don't worry you'll get over it when your biological clock starts ticking"... NEVER ever is it "Ohh alright, thanks for letting me know, let's talk about something else, shall we; or I'll just go talk to that other person over there." Nope, it's instant offence that won't wear off. "Ohh you don't like MY kids." Dude no, it's everybody's kids.
Why should I pretend I'd like them, when they can clearly sense themselves that I don't?
It's so evident, watching them run away from me even if I try smiling (the braces may contribute to that, tho').
Maybe I'm an ignorant little motherfucker with a harsh, black&white opinion; some of the things the woman says on the video are things I probably would not say out loud to anyone ("Did you mean to get pregnant?"); but goddamnit it's 2014 and a woman still
can't say she doesn't like / want kids.
As long as these people are not willing to sit down with me and discuss, like, the Final Fantasy
franchise, then I will not tolerate them going on and on about their childrunz. Just nope nope nope. You receive and you give.
