    Thank you for your honesty. I will read in depth better and respond later. It is clean up the toys time now! The a walk to town and ice cream... later.
    My teachings are easy to understand
    and easy to put into practice.
    Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
    and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

    Oh, I don't have to think about it, I know that I've learned many things in the past 6 months that I couldn't have TRULY fathomed before becoming a mother. You do have a very valid point....BUT, I would never immediately dismiss the opinions of a non parent, unless they had absolutely NO experience with children whatsoever. I may not take their advice, but I'll at least listen to what people have to say, because like I said, you never know just where that magic piece of advice could come from.


    As for the rest of your post...I've got to put my mod hat on and tell you to play nice.

Pick out the one comment you don't like and get upset...or do you listen to everything that a person says and clarify certain points.
    I don't seem that "open" about what, exactly?

    And yes, if someone says something in a conversation that pisses me off, I address *that* immediately. I didn't have anything else to say to you regarding the rest of your last post, except the absolute arrogance and assuming attitude you took towards me. Basically, you told me to get out of the thread because I didn't have kids of my own. The thread isn't just about currently having kids, but about the choices that women make in their lives regarding their families. With all due respect, being a woman in her 30s (which was targeted by the OP), I think I have every reason to be participating in this thread. And, just by being a woman in our society, I also have reason to be participating in this thread.

    If you don't like what I have to say and wish to just dismiss it, then do so by not responding to my posts. But don't sit there and tell me that my opinions about women and families are not valid.

    I am trying to play nice...I really am.
    I am a Virgo, no nonsense "cut out the crap" kinda guy.

    That is it.
    That is my point.
    That is all.
    Thank you...

    I take advice from non-parents...if you can believe that?! Why? You are right! You never know where a great idea will come from.
    My teachings are easy to understand
    and easy to put into practice.

    I don't seem that "open" about what, exactly?
    About most of the things that I am talking about...

    And yes, if someone says something in a conversation that pisses me off, I address *that* immediately.
    What a negative way to engage in a conversation.

    I didn't have anything else to say to you regarding the rest of your last post, except the absolute arrogance and assuming attitude you took towards me.
    LOL! So wait.. you go off on me. I respond. In the next few posts I try to get you to be open. You continue to be hostile. I say "Whatever" Haha...and I am being "arrogant". I am just talking about the way that it is... don't be so defensive... lighten up.

    See, you insult me and I don't sweat it. I just think that this is "us" getting to know each other. You get all bothered and won't let up. That is your choice. I suggest that you get with the program...and that is called "Adult Communication 101". I will be your professor. Lessons have already begun.

    Basically, you told me to get out of the thread because I didn't have kids of my own.
    I indicated NOTHING of the sort. Talk about "assuming"

    The thread isn't just about currently having kids, but about the choices that women make in their lives regarding their families. With all due respect, being a woman in her 30s (which was targeted by the OP), I think I have every reason to be participating in this thread.
    Correct. Stop attacking what you don't understand though. Relax. Remember...YOU are entering this debate with your "assumption" hat on, not me. I am not sure what you are so angry about...still. I like what you have to say, it is just that you seem blinded with "having to prove something".

    Dang, I don't care about your choices...I already said that. I did lots of **** that was not good for a parent ot do...once I became a parent I stopped.

    I say that you, "Sounds good. Not sure what your gripe is then. Sounds like you have a lot of this figured out. If I don't understand your situation, that is because I don't know what it is. Try not to take this personally. " yet you continue to be rude and attack.

    And, just by being a woman in our society, I also have reason to be participating in this thread.
    True.

    If you don't like what I have to say and wish to just dismiss it, then do so by not responding to my posts.
    I could just say "you are a hypocrite" and be done with you, but I won't. See, I am far more open than you would be willing to admit.

    But don't sit there and tell me that my opinions about women and families are not valid.
    Your opinions are valid...I think that I said that a number of times...
    But you are not a parent, so I will listen and realize that simple fact.
    Cool? Cool!

    OP BodiSatva
    What is this invisible factor that is leading us down a path of single people, single mothers (voluntary ones at least), dead-beat fathers, etc.? What is it? Why are we seeing less married people and broken or disjointed families more and more?

    Yes, this is an extension of the last thread, so for all of you that can't fathom reality to save your life, this should be fun.
    So...where does it say, "The thread (is) just about (those) currently having kids"?

    You are right...it doesn't.

    More importantly...Where have I ever said that it was? hmmmm...?

    I did ask...

    1. What is this invisible factor that is leading us down a path of single people, single mothers (voluntary ones at least), dead-beat fathers, etc.? .

    YOUR ANSWER

    rivrrat
    Yeah, I guess it is selfish of me to want to enjoy my life and do the things I want to do... to travel to the places I want to travel to... to experience all the things I want to experience. It is after all MY life, why shouldn't I try to enjoy it? Why should I sacrifice everything I want just so I can be molded into what someone else thinks I should be? Yeah, I guess it is selfish... but you know what?

    I really don't give a flying hoot if someone thinks it's selfish.

    It's my life and I'll do with it what I want.


    2. Why are we seeing less married people and broken or disjointed families more and more?

    YOUR ANSWER

    No answer from you on that question. You are just stuck on being selfish and trying to justify it IMO.

    Why not stick tot the actual questions from this moment forward? Yeah, that sounds good to me too!
    My teachings are easy to understand
    and easy to put into practice.
    Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
    and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

    Well, now that we've all psychoanalyzed one another to a frazzle, it appears we're some justifying motherfvckers around here.
    In this corner, we've got Rivrrat, attempting to "justify" her selfish life of a swingin' single chick.
    In that corner, we've got 1069, "justifying" neglecting her kids by working outside her home.
    Over here we've got Stace, attempting to "justify" why her lazy arse doesn't go out and get a job.
    Over there, we've got Mikhail, "justifying" his obsession with phone sex.
    Over here, the Cap'n, "justifying" his selfishly childless state.
    Over there, we've got Tallou, trying to justify being a "stay-at-home mom" to children who are in school all day.
    Over there, Botisatva, justifying his voyeuristic passion for poking his prurient shnozz into everybody else's bidness, not to mention his curious relationship with the sycophantic Johnny Utah.

    Boy, I sure am glad we engaged in this orgy of self-justification.
    I feel justified.
    How about y'all? Do you feel justified?

    How did you find out?

    I've read an even more disgusting one.
    Wanna hear it?

    "and yet it is the likes of you that are so irresponsible
    so hot for an orgasm they do not care about the fact that another life is affected by their actions... try swallowing
    you cant get pregnant that way, last i heard
    either that or take it in the ***
    there is more to life than getting your rocks off...LIFE is life
    whether it is an innocent fetus, or some cum glutton gutter slut..."
