Boo hoo, society isn't doing enough to encourage breeding

The article is basically some wanna-moo explaining that society and government should do more to encourage breeding. And that population declines in many countries are caused by lack of money towards breeding and what a tragedy it is.

Why then is there an incomprehensible failure to see the combination of declining birth rates and longevity – which push those critical dependency ratios lower – through a fertility or equality lens? The vast bulk of developed economies are not doing enough to subsidise the costs of childcare, or tackle housing crises that deter many – men and women – from starting a family sooner because they do not have a home to call their own.

We need to tackle the structural and cultural barriers that still penalise women for having children – there’s a reason it’s called the “motherhood penalty” – and it’s a conversation that men, for their sake and ours, need to join. It’s not easy to talk about one’s private fertility journey. But the time for an informed debate is beyond dispute. The decisions policymakers and business leaders make today could have repercussions for generations to come. So let’s have that conversation now – before it’s too late.

Actually the only conversation we need is one on how ridiculous it is to encourage more breeding when climate change and job automation will make most people redundant/unemployed/lose the environment. Seriously, no one needs to have kids anyways so this bent is saying that CL/CF co-workers should pick up the slack to "make life easier for working parents". Screw that.

Uhh yeah, no. We don't even know what the fuck to do with the people we have now, so unless they want us to grow babies in order to cannibalize them when we can't grow food any longer, we don't need any encouragement to reproduce more. If you somehow got everybody in the world to quit spawning for five fucking years, we'd still be overpopulated.

And what is this bullshit about mothers being punished for having kids? Bitch, Moos are the most pampered group of people to ever exist. They get ALL the special treatment you can imagine, ranging from shitloads of welfare money and tax incentives to piles and piles of scholarships for degrees they won't ever use and special bathrooms/clothes/seating/parking. What cultural barriers exist that impede Moos in any way? Because I guarantee you anything that the average person will help a Moo before they'll help a CF/CL person.

What a crock. Nobody needs to have children, and that's true now more than ever as we approach 8 billion people, species croak every few seconds, and the world melts around us. Children won't be the future if there's no future for them to have. How's about working on making the world suck less instead of making more people just to suffer in a total shithole? Not that humanity has ever understood the concept of quality over quantity.

The dramatic decline in male sperm counts in western countries, by more than half in 40 years, should also set alarm bells ringing.

No, it is music to my ears.

What we need is birth control research, of course Trump and his asshole cronies don't want that.
