Popping out babies like a Pez Machine

:icontibban:

In relation to a thread I saw floating around here.

People wont stop breeding. Yes I will use the term breeding, and no, I do not care if it isn't a correct term.
Lets take poor countries for example:

1) They have no food
2) There is a lot of disease
3) Children. Children EVERYWHERE.

I don't think I'm the first person to touch upon this subject, but doesn't it seem a little selfish to keep getting pregnant and popping out kids left right and center? You /know/ you're in a poor country. You /know/ you cant support your kids. So why have more? Is it that hard to not pull your leg over someone and shag like its the 21st of December of last year?

Why can't we just make sure these people can't have children. For their sake and the future generations sake. Oh wait.

Human Rights.

I greatly prefer the term "spawning" over "breeding" since the kids are usually little shits anyways.
because parents don't bother with parenting anymore it seems.

Because having children makes sense if you think about it in terms of continuity. The situation it self is shitty, but livable for the children....do you know whom for which it isn't? The old and the sick. These people don't exactly have welfare, they depend on their kids to take care of them.

....and by the way, all that charity going into third world countries....it's hurting mroe than helping. All those clothes and food, are crippling their commodities markets literally depressing the price of goods and giving rise ot unemployment. The money is simply not ending up in the hands of the citizens starving on the streets....or at least nto enough to warrant a hwole bunch of white people coming into their country and using up their resources. Digging for wells is great and all, but once you're done, you'd help a lot more by just getting the hell out so their economy can stabilize.

I've lived in China for 6 years, damn it's crowded there. Though, people are people and do whatever they please. Even though was a 1-child law there, they still managed a couple more. :shrug:

Why not try and fix why they shouldn't have kids rather then ask them to stop having kids, something they would more then likely gauge your eyes out for suggesting;especially the callous way you put it. The problems they face in raising children in impoverished states is what I would think a rational human being would try and fix, rather then asking them to stop procreating, which you're correct, IS a human right (but one which we should take away?). Food, shelter, running water, access to medical supplies and treatment when needed, etc, are the real problems that need to be addressed.

You have to remember that people in poor countries or low income areas don't have the sex education that many have and don't know how to use contraceptives or have access to them. It also used to be that people had large families in order for them to help on the farm. Today it sees like the more kids you have the more welfare or child support you get so you never have to work.

These people think their children will care for them, but that's not true. I guess it's a species surviving strategy, like other animals make a lot of children because they know a part of it will die.

They should think like humans, not like animals...

1. Their kids die off. When you live in an area where food is barely being produced and disease is rampant, you birth a lot of kids in hope of that one lives long enough to take care of you. In our society, we can produce less kids because we can afford to feed and vaccinate our kids
2. Boys vs Girls. Parents believe the boy will carry the line and land. The girl is usually married off because they are considered a burden and will produce only the husband's line. They practically birth more to get a boy than a girl.
3. Education. In some societies, the kids are not given a proper education. It's worse when puberty hits because the girls are married off young and the boys are put into the field quicker. Plus, education is not cheap. A couple of our dollars can give a kid an education.
4. War. Kids are birth during war because parents fear they might not survive. There are also cases of rape and sexual abuse during war.

I read a bit of the thread. All I see is evidence of a very young person with no practical experience making assumptions about what it would take to fix problems they know nothing about.

But if it makes you feel any better, there are thousands more like you on this site. So you won’t be alone.

I understand this, and this is why some more 'rich' countries should go to these places and give them sexual education. I mean, yeah they build wells, but there are other problems as well.

People wont stop breeding.

Oh hey. Would you look at that. A species that attempts to increase its chances of survival by producing a bunch of offspring. That's not common at all. It's basic instinct to reproduce. Why are you surprised by this?
Reply

Tibban Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Student Digital Artist
How is it increasing chance of survival if they keep dying? Many children don't make it to the age of 12.
Reply
:iconlobosabio:
LoboSabio Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
There's actually a life history strategy based around that. They're called r-selected species. They reproduce quickly and produce large numbers of poorly developed offspring, most of whom die before they reach maturity. However, even with the high mortality rate enough offspring are produced that the species continues to survive. Rabbits are a well known example of this. I will note, however, that human beings are not.

You don't know shit about living in a third world country and for you to look down on them and say that they should not have children because of their environment, then you're an idiot.
When you live in poverty, big chance you don't have access to medical care, food AND education. You don't know anything but surviving and having kids because that's ALL you know and all that you have.

Jeezus Christ I can smell your hormones from here.
You wouldn't know if I've lived in a 3rd world country or not.

I think that people should go to 3rd world countries and teach them, not build wells and leave them to it. There should be more programs that hep these people. Starting with population control. Teaching them how to use contraceptive, condoms and such. Then giving them an education on it. It should be voluntary, not 'donate 3 pounds blah blah'.

No, education isn't all that is going to cut it. I am sure we have the money, it's just that no one wants to spend it on them as we fear it will go to waste. But we waste our money on lots of stuff but you can't make people care about the poor.

You think it's simple but it's not. People that are use to living in shit won't just listen to anything and be willing to try new things.
This is not to say that they are all comfortable living this way, but this is how they think life is. I'm sure many are open-minded to live in better conditions but it takes money, jobs, education, dedication, teamwork, the list goes on.

AND, when poor countries become more developed, they demand more resources. Most what we all fight for...OIL.

The thing is, some money may go to waste, as I learnt at school, some LEDC's have people in 'higher power' which means if we give money to that country, the 'higher power' will get to the money first for Drugs, Weapons and god knows what else, leaving the people in need with jack shit.

I don't think it's simple, I was simplifying what needs(in my opinion)to be done.

Thats what I worry about, Oil. The worlds supply is running out, and that could lead to deep shit.

Because drugs brings in money super fast.
And as you establish yourself (because when you sell drugs, you pretty much dig yourself in shit in a circle of wrong people), what to do you need to protect yourself and your money? Weapons.

Some of these people who live in these countries don't want to evenly distribute the money and when they receive aid. They want to help their families first.

They want to rack up the money and fucking leave to a better country or they can stay and/or even build a militia.

Just think why I copy and pasted that part for you. :B

Where are you coming from then, after I explained why it's not simple and a little laughable to think you can tell these people not to breed because you think they shouldn't.
