    I can't even believe you just typed that. What's Oprah done. Mother Teresa. Betty White. Should the barren just go out and off themselves?

    This is such bull****.

    Re: All Things Being Equal

    People who don't have children can serve just as vital a function in the community as people who do. The functions are just different. A lot of people who don't have children contribute greatly to humanity's progress because they are not burdened or distracted by having to care for offspring. They have fewer opportunity costs.

    On the whole, I think the poll question can not be objectively answered.

    Ive thought of not having children but it doesnt make me or anyone else a menace to society. Hell I'd be able to focus more on work, which could very easily make up for or surpass what one of my children could have contributed, especially if they ended up being a welfare mooching bum, which is becoming an increasingly popular occupation.

    So to you a bunch of women that were more in it for the money than to selflessly help people and be celibate because their religion called for it makes their contributions matter just as much? Great rebuttal.

    So you can't be a hardworker and a good father that instills your values in your children?

    I've read this sentence five times and it still doesn't make any sense to me.

    I believe he's trying to say that Oprah and Betty don't get credit, since they didn't pass on having children for religious reasons.

    With taxes alone, Oprah probably contributes more to society than everyone who posts at this forum combined.
