Breeder privilege during Coronavirus (Parents and Coronavirus)

Already on yahoo comments people are claiming that the virus is "no big deal" I think they see it hitting the elderly and they want that anyway.

There is also claims that it is slowing down in China but that is because the Chineses are very serious about containment and testing and will use violence towards those who do not comply, here they are just cancelling things. Today someone told me that "It is the same as the flu" even though the WHO announced it is absolutely not and has it own unique characteristics.

I wonder if the optimism stuff is due to the fact that most of these people are parents and do not want to face the reality of the world that they brought kids into keeping the guilty nasty feeling at bay. My MIL has eight grandkids and thinks "we as Americans will beat this" and chuckles about it

I wonder if the optimism stuff is due to the fact that most of these people are parents and do not want to face the reality of the world that they brought kids into keeping the guilty nasty feeling at bay.

Yesterday I was in Trader Joe's in the fancy part of my town and I saw a woman who looked to be 30 something. Despite being hugely pregnasty, she was nicely dressed and looked very well put-together. She was waddling around in that late-term, bovine, desultory way that they do. She didn't look particularly concerned--she had that smug look on her face that a lot of them have.

I looked at her and wondered, what is this woman thinking to herself right now? I mean, people have been saying for years that we are at critical mass and ripe for a pandemic, an environmental disaster, wars, a chemical attack, many bad things. Now one of those things appears to be happening. In an alternative universe where I had chosen to bring another person to this rock, I would be thinking, what the Hell was I thinking? I mean, they have to be worried, but they keep reassuring each other and drinking the Kool-Aid, "We've lived through hard times," "baybees were born during the Great Depression*," and "everything is going to be all right."

The difference now is that there are so many of us, and we are all interconnected, etc. In the Great Depression, some people hunkered down, grew their own food and improvised. They made do with very little. Now, financial disasters are bigger. Our government is bigger and has more people to take care of. It appears many people are getting more worthless every day in terms of personal financial responsibility. Despite the good financial numbers in the U.S., 40% of people cannot afford a $400 expense. I get it that some people are working low wage jobs or experience genuine hardship, but others do not have an emergency fund and they choose not to save.

how many people died of starvation during the great depression..

CERTIFIED HOSEHEAD!!!

people (especially women) do not give ONE DAMN about what they inflict on children
and I defy anyone to prove me wrong:

The selfish wants of adults outweigh the needs of the child.

If I want to hear the pitter-patter of little feet I'll put shoes on my pets.

Mankind and its needs (wants) are like unto a black hole. It devours all available resources and it never is full: it merely grows larger and demands more.

Definition of 'wealthy': Anyone who makes more/has more than you do.

Someone pointed out that I'm a realist. And all along I thought I was just a pessimist crossed with a cynic.

Entitlement, thy name is mooooooooooooooo

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove
they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are
citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.""

I am confused enough already. I do not need outside help.

Judging by what I'm seeing on social media, the trend now is for breeders to tell everyone who is stocking up to leave food and wipes for the people with children because they need it more. Yeah no, with this kind of mass hysteria, it's every man for himself and no one is going to let Moos step over them. Desperate nutcases will gladly steal toilet paper out of a breeder's cart because everyone thinks they need everything more than everyone else right now.

Good lord the virus isn't even in my county and I made the mistake of going to the store for a couple non-essential things and shelves are picked clean. I could hardly move in there and I only needed five fucking things for dinner Sunday. Honestly, I guarantee you anything every single paranoid asshole leaving with 50 pounds of chicken has enough food in their pantry to eat for at least a month, if not longer. I could easily survive on all the crap I have in my pantry and that's with all the frivolous baking I do. Sure it might be things like soup, rice, pasta, tuna and other staples, but I'd live.

I'm grinning like an idiot thinking about how miserable breeders are gonna be having to actually interact with their brats for two weeks and have to feed them too. Poor babies, they just got done dealing with the snowflakes for two straight weeks back in December and now they gotta do it again and then AGAIN in four more months when that horrible thing called summer break happens! playing a violin

I was reading on yahoo that poorer parents are in a situation where they are forced to got to work and leave their kids at home. Maybe this will lead to some house fires with no one to look after the little shits and Dog know what else

Breeders are amazing for their ability to follow a thought halfway to its logical conclusion, and then quit. As an anti-natalist, I find this extremely disheartening.

Here's logic for ya.....

In Maryland (where I am) they have closed all schools for 2 weeks and are not having services at any churches that I know of. BUT... on Monday they will be opening day care centers AT some of these churches. Daycare for k thru 6th grade. Ummm... okay... so these kyds can't be together in a school setting but they can all gather in the church social halls for 8 hours a day? Well.. at least they'll get breakfast and lunch. OMG... If ya can't feed 'em… don't have 'em.

The one that's killing me is the politicians bleating over how school closing is a big deal because that's where kids are being fed. Like we can't close schools because the schools are literally where the kids eat.

I saw this in article on NYC stating that over 70% of the kids attending public school are on a free/reduced cost lunch plan. It is the largest school district in the country with over one million kids. And over 700,000 of those kids are on reduced/free lunches. I guess they rationalize breeding with "if we wait until we can afford to have kids we will never have kids" camp. I have listened to people saying that since I was a kid and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Mother nature is trying to tell them that they need to wait until they can afford to have kids. And if that means waiting forever then that is what it means. But boy, you certainly can't tell the breeders or wanna-breeders that, they will flip out because their ability to rationalize is non-existent. More advanced topics, such as overpopulation, will only make their heads explode.

Once grandparents functioning as custodial parents (the elderly so few seem to care about) start dying from this virus then you'll see a definite change of tune. And once the elderly start dying and the volunteer organizations end up short-staffed or shutting down then the tune will change. Many of these organizations exist to assist people who couldn't afford to breed and did so anyways. And these breeders are the very people who only care about da childrun.

I think pahrunts should keep Shitford and Cumleigh at home when the schools are closed and not let them run amuck in malls and stores. Kyds will get COVID-19 but won't die from it.

Elderly people, people whose immune systems are compromised, and additional health problems are most likely to die from COVID-19, not the worshipful shitstains.

It's like that where I live, too.

God forbid breeders assume some sort of responsibility for what they bring into the world.

When the grandparents die, I said when not if, parents will find themselves unable to cope. The foster system will break down and the little fuck trophies will be sent to an orphanage.

Yup, I'm seeing that too. Plus, I've seen at least three morons on my Facebook friends list offering to feed people's bastards because they no longer have access to free breakfast and lunch at school. NO, bad morons! It's like stray cats, if you feed them once, they won't leave... only stray cats are actually worth feeding in my opinion. Let these assholes fend for themselves - I'm sorry, but it wasn't all that long ago when CPS would get involved if you couldn't afford to feed your kids three meals a day. Why is this okay now? And what are these fuckers doing with their welfare money and food stamps that they can't afford to feed their kids? My family was poor too, but I still ate plenty, which is why I was 200 pounds at age 14, so I had more than plenty.

I think it's more along the lines of they don't want to buy stuff they have to actually prepare themselves like produce because they're just so bizzy doing (crickets chirping) and they claim it's too expensive to eat fruits and vegetables. Schools are being bleeding hearts and parents will take full advantage of freebies to the point where it becomes expected and if the school does anything to establish boundaries like, oh, making parents pay off lunch debts before feeding the kids hot food, then they screech to the media about how the school is "literally taking food out of my baby's mouth!"

Americans are definitely taking a Business over Health approach during this novel viral pandemic (as is our way in this cutthroat capitalist empire) which is getting on my nucking ferves. I'm already seeing idiot parents posting ideas for "backup playdate ideas" on Facebook, like they can't stand to even spend one whole day at home with their own offspring. Others are treating it like a fucking snow day & gathering at the local McDonald's PlayPlace since school is out which defeats the entire purpose of cancelling school. I also see people sharing tips on how to "support businesses" by buying gift cards & doing other such things. Like, I get it. Nobody wants to lose revenue because of this, but the sooner we start complying with the guidelines the sooner this will be OVER & everyone can get back to normal.

Airports are full to overflowing. Grocery stores have been practically looted of toilet paper & other necessities. Boomers are booking cheap flights & vacations so they can get asspats on social media for their "cute" pics of them showing a blatant disregard of public health advice during a pandemic. Very few average people are staying in their goddamn homes like they're supposed to be right now. Yeah, it's probably overblown but this is a 'better safe than sorry' situation. And it's temporary. A temporary inconvenience that will only last longer & have a higher death toll if we don't take it seriously.

And if you don't like the way your boss or our politicians are handling this, make mandatory paid sick leave, vacation time, universal healthcare & other basic safety nets a priority come voting season. (Aiight, stepping off my podium now lol. My social media is full to the brim with idiots).

All of a sudden, socialism sounds great, amirite? Without wishing ill on individuals, I hope this hurts bad enough that people will exercise their brains come November.

Safety nets does not equal socialism. The USA is giving the welfare to the giant businesses like Walmart and letting Americans rot in the streets.

Boo-fucking-hoo, breeders. But the famblees will be getting all the help. Screw you if you're CF or CL, especially if you're single!

You know it. When the shite started hitting the fan, one of our female executives issued a missive that anyone with dependent children at home could automatically telework. It was only later that an addition was made for high risk individuals, yanno people who could actually DIE. Nothing has been issued about people in neither of these categories. Thankfully, my boss is sensible and is letting everyone telework because our jobs can be performed via telework. The unfairness of it all is galling--Breeders, don't think people don't notice when you circle the wagons and only protect your own--the people who are often less productive.

I will add that our company newsletter recently ran a story about this particular executive and I understand a lot more now, not in a good way. My boss, a middle aged person with kids, actually pointed it out to me as in Wow, bell, did you see that, as in Major TMI overshare? The article was about her rise and it contained the typical womban friendly corporate propaganda: Promoted at a very young age, and in the midst of it all there was her DESPERATE DESIRE TO CONCEIVE, and the medical procedures were described in detail and the minute she had a kid she was no longer a "broken person." Speaking of being "broken," there were several references to her former husband, because nothing screams "I have great personal judgement" like having your marriage implode right after you have a kid.

The whole thing was off-putting. I get it that everyone has struggles, but Breeders are all about how their struggles are worse than everyone else's and of course they deserve special treatment because of it.

This article basically says it's fine to get pregnant during the pandemic, even though it admits medical care might be scarce. Breeders should be flat out discouraged from breeding more now. And any time in the future.

There seems to be nothing whatsoever that can cause breeders to think (a) there are too damn many people, and (b) maybe the world isn't all that great and people will suffer from being brought into existence. I will never understand how they think.

And of course (c) If health services are overloaded, maternal mortality rates are going to increase and you definitely aren't going to get to use your birthing plan.

The article is appalling--let's keep shoveling pablum and sunshine to the masses, right? Because experience shows Breeders will swallow or buy anything. I wouldn't expect anything less from Good Housekeeping and a "reproductive psychologist."

If anything, there is going to be a baby boom in nine months with the confinement because apparently 50% of baybees are accidents.

Any person with a functioning brain cell is concerned right now. And who gives a rip if it infects feti--logic shows it can affect a HOST and the HOST should be concerned. Even if someone survives this one, it's the NEXT one they should be concerned about, because viruses mutate. Nature is getting smarter and this is a direct result of too many of us.

Someone on my personal FB page posted a picture of her pregnut daughter with the caption of how excited she is and how much they have to look forward to. I. Can't. Even.

It's not as if they're saying that we'll have to continue intermittent isolation for the next 18 months until a vaccine can be mass-produced... Nah, it's only going to be a couple of weeks, amirite? Then all back to normal!

""And what are these fuckers doing with their welfare money and food stamps that they can't afford to feed their kids?"""

i've been saying this... a lot of times. If they can't even feed the buggers at least 2 meals a day, where the hell is all their welfare money going? I'm willing to be the so called 'parent'(s) are bigger pieces of shit and if investigated, they would be taken away from their egg and sperm donors.

I think there should be a corona sticky thread. There is a sub reddit called 'breakingmom' and it is an absolute orgy of schadenfreude. I can fell some sympathy for the bitching going on, but a larger portion of myself just wants to laugh hysterically. I wonder how many of these whining brood sows are the ones who bingoed and pressured everyone else to breed because 'it's love you don't know about; you'll wuuuu vit... etc....

As an aside, I have the sneaking suspicion that this reddit, breakingmom, has some sort of filter that automatically bans members of the childfree forums. I tried posting a neutral advice post and was prevented from doing so. I guess some CF do go there and mock them. Technically, we shouldn't do that, we don't like it when they troll the cf forums. I have so far not seen much by way of parunt crap at the cf forums there.

It could be. I know they explicitly say Moos only, even though I think there are Duh posters (and the r/breakingdad sub is private, which is telling). Oh, and mommies are allowed to infiltrate the CF sub, as far as I know. Because fairness - breeders are allowed everywhere, but keep those freetards out of their clubhouse! eye rolling smiley

As far as the nursing home, not everyone exposed to a virus will contract it. Virology is a fascinating science. I worked in a doctor's office during a flu epidemic and never got sick. I've never had a cold sore, food poisoning, or herpes.

Which is very true.

At past places of employment my co-workers would have the flu but I never contracted it.
