Great news for Anonymous and the creep in Gauntlets' grocery line

Apparently all the ethical women of the world have taken care of the population sitch, and now you jerks who buy clothes at Target are the problem.

"Mothers no longer need to have 5 or 6 children to ensure the next generation."

What sad words- and what a sad assumption, that women only had children to ensure the next generation.

Reading this article makes me want to have fifteen more children.

You know, all the noble women could pop the consumption bubble, too, if they would but submit once again to being consumed themselves.

HAHAHAHAHA.

"Two or three is enough, and that is what they are choosing to have."

I am so sick of this "choosing" language. Someone, please, point out to people--including my MIL--that many, many women who would "choose" children a hundred times over suffer from barrenness instead. How does life become so, well, a product of our shopping-aisle times? This brings to mind a terrible, terrible commercial I saw a few years ago for a type of birth control--women were "shopping" for a dream house, travel icons like the Eiffel Tower, etc. and skipping over the stork. It was disgusting.

Oooh, I remember that one. What a terrible image, indeed.

Emommy-

Here's an old one about choosing.

Just read an excellent article in the WSJ from Saturday about how this whole "overpopulation of Earth" thing is a big myth. If I may be so crass, I never worry about overpopulation anyway, because I live in North Dakota.

Elizabeth: I once had to debate (NPDA) someone who wished to take Swift's modest proposal literally: eat children, and thereby prevent overpopulation. To win that debate, I had only to laugh at my opponent while pointing out the window at the vast Nebraska prairie. If only real life were so easy. And fun. :D

HA HA HA I forgot about that. And the rest of us were stuck with that boring old DoE case.
