First off, I just want to say it that this isn't an attack on children. While my personal feelings towards children has soured some what over the years to now knowing I never want to have any, and that babysitting my nephews is a chore instead of a joy, this is a thought I was thinking today on something thats always bugged the shit out of me.
Now to all you folks here who have children, I have nothing against people wanting to have kids and raise a family. I've had many friends and relatives who went on to become mothers and fathers themselves, so I've a good perspective on how raising children effects different people.
However, the thing I find very hard to digest on this issue, comes from all the baby boomers, the child worshipers and Soccer moms, or any other title for parents who act like children are the absolute crowning jewels of the world and perfect in every single way.
Much like the problems with modern feminism and what that brings, child worshipers is something that pisses me off, when I see people referring to how perfect their kids are, and how they're little angels of holy light. The reality is the kids are trouble makers, shit sprayers, breakers of expensive objects, and all round mess makers, and yet instead of being called up for it, the kids be praised for being creative when they break things.
I feel that taking several sketches from george carlin sums up my feelings towards such people.
And maybe I wouldn't mind these people living in their own world of child worship, if thats where they kept it. But we all know that these same people expect the world to adapt to their child, to make everything for the children, to fuck up tv, movies, magazine covers, even social and ethical rights, all for the children.
What I'm getting to a suppose, is how this whole system of child worship, its almost like a religion itself in the minds of child worshipers, in how these people think children are angels that do no wrong, they react badly to anyone criticizing them, and react even worse if you insult the children in the same way a catholic would react to you insulting god. And just like religion in how it wants to fuck up anything enjoyable for free thinking adults like porn, drink, drugs, alcohol and anything else of human nature, child worshipers also want these activities away from the children incase it hurts their delicate feelings.
So.. yes this is kind of a rant, and I apologize to anyone who might be a parent here, though i hope you are not as described a fanatical child worshiper, and accept all the annoying shit children do as making them not angelic, but just undeveloped people yet to grow into the same thing we all are now.
