Life, Censorship, and Everything in It..

One often wonders why people wish to be babysat & have others run their lives. Is it pure laziness or what? Apparently it's too difficult to turn off a dial, change a channel, or walk away. We, as a population, have to keep the airwaves "safe" for anyone and everyone.. especially children under 2! We have to make sure that our billboards, advertisements, and even our t-shirts are "family friendly". (don't ask their parents to watch their kids and educate them about the world, there's that "effort" stuff rearing its ugly head again)

We wouldn't want little Jimmy to see that the world isn't a perfect place filled with rainbows and sunshine! No no, we don't want sweet little Sarah to know that it's OK to be Jewish or Muslim, that gay people aren't out to recruit her, and sex is a normal, natural part of life. We can't let the kids learn these horrible things! If we don't control all outside influences, how can we control their thought processes? If we don't make SURE to only show good, wholesome, Christian morals.. they might end up thinking for themselves!

I fear for these children. They're in for a very big shock and quite the rude awakening when they realize they're not perfect, they're not special, and the world isn't perfect. I fear for their parents when those same children are fearful or resentful of being left out of so many of the realities of life. Those poor children who know if they tell mom they really like the same sex.. or perhaps they really aren't Pentacostal, after all. They feel more like a Buddhist..

I'm revolted with these parents. These people demand the world revolve around them. They demand the entire society has to reflect their views, their beliefs, and their morals. They rally the states, the senates, and the courts to try to make sure that everything is in adherence with what THEY want their children to see and know. To hell with the rest of us, we don't count.

I'm even more revolted that they demand society do their jobs. It is not my responsibility to make sure your children don't hear "offensive" things on the radio or see "offensive" things on television. Nor is it the government's job! It's their's. They are the ones who can change channels, turn off dials, and approve what their children see and do. It's their job to speak to their kids and.. well, actually raise them. Leaving the child alone and then expecting everyone else to cater to your kids is patently ridiculous... but it's what's expected.

If one wants their child raised a certain way in a certain environment, one must pay close attention and raise their child in that way. You musn't be lazy and demand society revolve around you.

But then we get into that whole "effort" and actually having to be a parent thing.. and people hate doing that.

I am absolutely fascinated with the lack of responsibility some people seem to have. What does it say about you, as a person, if you cannot or will not take care of your obligations? Or worse, you put more onto a plate that's already overloaded and things keep falling off the sides?

How does one decide it's a good idea to have another child, when the child they already have is not under their care and custody. I don't mean a situation like adoption, I mean it's their very own child and it lives with a relative because they couldn't be bothered (or worse, the state intervened). WTF does that kind of person decide that it'd be a WONDERFUL idea to go ahead and have another child? WTF kind of sense does that make?

Did you ever notice the people that are LEAST fit to be parents are the ones who have the most children and put the least effort and forethought into it? The mother who already has a child she can't/won't take care of.. the father without a job or any visible means of support.

Who pays for this? Sure us taxpayers do. But who pays the most? The children. Lovely. We're raising a generation of fuckups who will not be able to function in normal society because their parents were fucking idiots.

We're raising a generation of children who won't know how to parent and won't know how to function. We're raising a generation of cast off kids. The first kid was inconvenient so we let that one go, we'll do better with the next! I bet the first kid feels wonderful.. "Well mom doesn't want ME, but she likes her new baby"

Thank you SO much for giving the world the next generation..

.. of serial killers.
