Why don’t you adopt 10 straight out of foster care right now then? If you don’t believe there’s something as “too many children” YOU take care of them then.
Sweetheart, I’m already planning to adopt. But I’m only 15 years old right now. Nice of you to be so thoughtful though. :)
Ah, you’re 15 years old.
Ah, yeah. You think I’m naive?
I think you’re 15. You’re a kid. That’s what I think. You’re going to be growing up a helluva lot over the coming years, and you’ll realize what I’m coming from now. You’re 15, and right now I think you’re a bit too young to be talking about adult stuff you have no idea about.
Come back in a few years when you’re struggling to get a job that’ll cover the bills, loans, and rent while having a boyfriend that you love.
Come back then. Right now you’re 15, and you’re in no place to tell people not to have sex when they’re adults. You’re FIFTEEN. I’m sick of 15 year olds trying to tell adults what to do as if they have a better clue of adulthood.
It’s pretty sad that a FIFTEEN year old is reminding adults that abortion is murder. It’s pretty sad. I LOVE kids. (Also, I’m a teenager) I’m not a rebellious and I don’t try to be. On the internet I can’t tell who’s a teenager and who’s an adult. And you’re right. I’m still learning. But you can never be too young to defend innocent life because people had sex without the intention of having a child and now they want to abort the child for something that wasn’t his/her fault. The point of this post is “there’s never too many children”. :)
Yeah, you love kids. You love kids because they’re so cute, you love kids and their 500 questions, their poopy diapers, keeping you up all night, their sick days, when they cling on you after you haven’t slept all night. You love kids when they’re throwing tantrums while you’re trying to cook, when they’re screaming their heads off for 15 minutes because you didn’t let them play with a fucking hammer.
You love kids and their innocence, their adorable laughter, their hugs, kisses and their throw up on your shirt. You love kids when you’ve got 20$ left in your account, and 5 days until the next pay check, and you have to buy formula and diapers. You love kids.
You love kids…
A 15 year old tells me that she LOVES kids, but probably hasn’t spent more than a couple of hours baby-sitting, and most of their knowledge on kids is watching their moms do it. Dude, no. I don’t believe any 15 year old, who isn’t a mother, who says “I love kids”.
Regardless of who’s a teenager or who’s not a teenager, you’re speaking in general terms. You put up a post on a tag on tumblr and you’re talking to EVERYONE, from the 12 year olds who probably shouldn’t be on here to the 70 year olds. EVERYONE.
You don’t even understand parenting, don’t even understand what it’s like to have bills or ACTUAL responsibility, so please please please for the sake of all that’s good, just understand that this is a topic that you don’t know enough about to speak up about. You’re a kid. And you’re acting like one.
The point is that there ARE too many kids. Children in Guatemala are being thrown into rivers because there are too many kids. There are so many children in foster care because there are too many kids. There are children starving, there are children being murdered, there are children out there that are neglected, abused… The point is that there are so many children right now who do not have the basic care they need, and adding to that? That’s not a good idea? Denying it? You’re just fooling yourself.
Not everyone likes kids. Not everyone who likes kids, wants them. (i.e. Me).
You can have your opinion, OP, because as teenagers, we are encouraged to think for ourselves. You have to think for yourself in order to grow as a person. That’s how I became pro-choice when I was seventeen.
It’s a big, diverse world out there, dear. I hope you’ll one day see that there are many, many differences in people and their opinions. It’s not all black and white.
