I'm pretty sick of running into opinions (in newspapers and news websites) about what a drag it is to share space with kids being, well, kids, and its whole bunch of associated "acts" (hotels or restaurants that don't allow kids in, etc.). It's the kind of attitude I'd expect from the typical old grumpy neighbour that would yell at you for skateboarding in the street when you were a kid. Well, those old grumpy human beings you remember are now people in their 30s/40s (and mostly women, surprising). Don't get me wrong, I'd be totally suportive if such opinions were aimed at their right cause of distress: POOR EDUCATION. Because I think education is exactly the problem. I don't think these anti-child people are so ignorant not to know that centuries (or even decades) ago some people were banned from many things for being the "wrong" race, ancestry, sexual preference or faith without giving their education/behaviour the benefit of doubt. Sorry, but people in their 30s whining about other people's kids (per se) look highly resentful and miserable, and lacking a life (with or without kids, not the problem here either). I'm in Europe, I know, home to the most selfish and childish adults who should get a life I've ever known. Folks from the other side of the ocean, Asia or Africa might not be so invaded with this phenomenon (I've been to the USA, Canada and most of Latin America and have never felt such an "anti-child" climate as we're living here in Europe, hell, you even keep wanting to have babies there!). Maybe it's because we're getting old at a much faster rate here, so society's norms are conforming more and more to the grumpy-pseudo-old-selfish-creeps' needs. Just some background data, I'm 42, been a father for the 1st. time at 38 and will be again in 4 months. Didn't even think of being a parent before 35 but even then I still would have never embraced such a stupid fad. Sorry, I'm not looking for reaffirmation, just complaining.
