Is Having Kids Taboo?

Here is a really interesting article I recently came across about the anti-children culture that seems to be prevalent in society:

Do you think there is something wrong with having “too many kids”? Or maybe even having kids in general? If not something wrong, is it something you want to do, or do you have objections to having children? What do you feel about having children overall?

I know that my public school experience and the culture I grew up in made it seem like a negative thing for me to have children. The sentiment seemed to tend towards being anti-having kids as opposed to showing having children as a wonderful thing to strive towards. From sex-ed which preached abstention, showed pictures of STDS, and played videos showing the struggles of teen parents, to the promiscuity laden Brittany Spears videos (and the rest of the Disney bunch), MTV, and mainstream television, it seemed everywhere I turned having babies and settling down seemed like a bad idea. There was also ridicule and ostracism that came with being young and pregnant, which I suspect is a product of the sex ed and mainstream media. It’s no wonder so many seem to be uninterested or even opposed to the notion of having children. The emphasis on promiscuity in modern culture, coupled with the programming against having kids, and it makes sense there’s such a high prevalence of abortion these days, something the article gets in to as well.

To be honest, when Catherine and I found out we were pregnant with our first child, Aliana, we were pretty much clueless as to what to expect. Thankfully we had a strong network of family and friends, the internet, and of course we hooked up with most kick-ass midwife around, Marimikel Potter. But seriously, they don’t really teach you the ins and outs of child rearing in public school or through mainstream media and art. In school, the only class remotely dealing with childbirth and child rearing is home economics and some health classes. But even then, the health class is focussed is on STDs not the process of pregnancy and the home economics involved carrying around a sack of flower or a dummy baby that cries and pees, leaving out all the great stuff that comes with babies like snuggles and coos. Where is the instruction on birthing options or breast feeding, or what it really takes economically to raise a child. Nothing.

Cat put it best when she said the emphasis these days is on protecting people from getting pregnant or catching STDs so they can safely be promiscuous rather than creating a culture where people are intimate with only those they feel are capable of raising their children or at least with those they know for certain will not share an infectious disease with them. Why is that not the direction things are going? I know in my life, promiscuity and “getting laid” was seen as virtuous and the thing to do when my buddies and I would head downtown to party. Why is it cooler to have sex with random people than to focus on growing one’s self and finding a life partner whom you can truly connect with and trust to be a good parent?

These are some of my thoughts on the subject. What are yours?

Maybe next time, we’ll go deeper down the rabbit hole and explore the role the UN and the social engineering elite play in furthering the anti-child culture. But for now, I’ll leave you to read the article posted above……..

Enjoy!

  1. I agree 100%. School really teaches promiscuity disguised inside all the fear tactics
    you name in the article and is not teaching being intimate.
    Intimate people are harder to control because those intimate people are
    going to look out after one another and protect their relationships, respect their elders
    above any outside power. The powers that be need a bunch
    of self interested people who are easier to sway into the group think of the
    powers that be instead of the heart of their own family – the ones who have love for them. Unfortunate the plan of the power is so big that family members are now in the same indoctrinated mindset in some cases, certainly not all – some of my family supported the indoctrination without really being aware of the empty-headed moldable nature behind it. I simply knew something was off till I learned how to express myself about it- I never lost my heart and questioned authority – I even wore a button that read question authority to school – I bet that would be grounds for getting expelled these days. I was normally on the honor roll as well.
    I remember in school that we were taught that we were to think of ourselves as expendable as well. Talk about esteem building. That one tore me up – so I remember it. The truth is that everyone has a unique gift to contribute to community. Thank you for the article. It’s the core of what Is wrong in our country.
