I'm sorry but is it me, or threads like these have gotten weirdly common?
I'm not talking about children but just stuff that seems created to get a reaction out of people. >>143185
I've actually noticed it's a "pick what you laugh at and are annoyed by" thing. So, you can find very weird natalists and anti-natalists. But, some people choose to just get pissed off by one in a reactionary way for…some reason. Also– >>143202
has a point. It isn't that "pregnancy bad" but rather the current system is hostile to it on several levels and we are supposed to ignore this for some reason.
Literally, this all is by design because, well, regardless of what everyone here believes, what is true is that child-rearing is Hard Mode. You have to spend 10000$s, and dedicate 10000s of hours to it–and society lowkey needs this invisible labor and wants to parasitically drain it from women without valuing the labor accordingly. Not many people can actually reasonably afford it. Of course there has to be an extra "oomph" to get people to do this because it's kind of a toss-up whether or not it actually makes you happy, etc. Getting people to laugh at and make fun of people for not having kids is pretty much par the course.
For many women, having a kid is great, but for others, it will actually wreck their lives.
I think OP harbors some serious male-energy in that she has a sense of schadenfreude for some reason.
