Trust me, if you had known me as a kid, you would not have liked me...seriously, I was such a terror. I am surprised my parents didnt go off the deep end. I brought them so close some days it is scary.
I understand that you like kids, and I think they can be great and cute too! But...have you ever been annoyed by one? Like, have you just had good experiences with them so you stay positive, or do you just not get annoyed or bothered when one is being a bit fo a brat?
I definetly want to be a mommy, but i know for sure I will be very careful to not raise my kid as one of thise that will literally scream for 5 minutes straight when they dont get what they want, or, the thing I hate the most, when people arent watching their kids, and the kids are running around wild knocking stuff off store shelves and even running up to random people and hitting them. Does every kid do that? No. Do kids who do do that do it all the time? No. But it still is annoying and crappy when it does happen.
But that is a nice thing that you did. I volunteered for the salvation army for the collection of toys, though I did not get to hand them out That is what I wanted the most, to see the looks on the faces of the kids when they got their toys
well, I read all the posts and I have so many thoughts running through my head. I think it is awesome how you did that, and those kids have toys for Christmas, thats all that matters. I am not taking sides with anyone, cause I can see both points, but honestly, all the name calling and fighting between everyone is a little much. everyone has opinions, and you were just posting yours, which is very cool, its nice to see that people do care about the children. but everyone also has to relize that one is entitled to their own opinion, its part of Freedom of speech.
Maybe I misread a lot of what people were saying, but I think there was alot of judging flying around, ya know....maybe everyone shouldn't get so offended when someone says thay love children, and vice versa. AND its also your opinion that you feel that the forums are stupid. your entitled to that....Anyways, I think what you did for those kids is awesome, and I think you have a big heart. Like I said before, I am not taking sides, so no need for anyone to get angry with me.
well thank you much. I just feel that everyone is entitled to there own opinions. and it is YOUR thread, everyone has the right to post there own thread on whatever they want, therefore, instead of everyone pissing everyone off...why not post there own thread to bitch? well, thats my two sence...
BABY ARE LOUD AND ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!
that's 2 more gifts for toys for tots.
Yeah I'm helping out charity. Lol, you do realise that you may be encouraging people to talk like that cause then it's like "hey talking bad about kids helps charity".
I can't belive that Suki and Jisus HATE CHILDREN and chairty so much that they need to bloat this thread up to 400 posts of pissing on your good deed, Mia. I don't know if it's out of some DESPERATE NEED to ahve the last word or if they just crawled out of some Rhol Dahl book or what, but it's pathetic.
Anyway I think you did a great thing, and that Suki and Jisus are just lucky it no longer applies, or you'd have to buy toys until you were in the poor house.
While I applaud your charitable contributions, your manner of making them known was unappropriate. You are disgusted that people seem to categorize all children as hellions, rather than only those that actually are, and yet you state:
"Deviantart forums, thank you for being the lowest of the low on the internet."
"everyone writes on and on about how OH GOD I HATE CHILDREN I WILL TOTALLY BEAT THEM UP I HATE CHILDREN SO MUCH THEY ARE THE DUMBEST LET'S EAT AND KILL THEM DURRRRRR DROOLING ALL OVER MY DUMB FAT SELF."
You are as guilty as anyone else of categorizing people unfairly.
Not at all. In fact, I'm not complaining. I'm simply pointing out that the thread could have been presented in a different manner, one which did not commit the same errors that the original deviant was complaining about.
I say yeah for your donations and nae for your extreme intolerance of people who don't like kids. Hell, I like most kids but certain ones I just cannot stand. Especially the ones who are at the point where their mental capabilities have grown large enough to understand the concept of no but refuse to listen and cause problems to get what they want.
I would have recommended donating more stuffed animals. Nothing comforts a child more then a soft stuff animal to cuddle. Hell even I still sleep with one and it helps me relax. Also note that Electronic toys might have been a bad idea as many of them can probably not afford batteries should the ones in the toys run out.
Yeah I have an extreme intolerance of people who don't like OTHER PEOPLE FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN'T CONTROL (i.e. being alive/being a certain age)
What I'm saying is that ok not all kids are awesome, but going around saying YEAH I HATE KIDS IT'S AWESOME WHEN KIDS CRY I HATE BEING AROUND ALL KIDS THEY ALL SUCK ALL KIDS ARE DUMB BRATS is not cool and in fact is extremely intolerant
Yeah, you're right about the stuffed toys, though. Should have gotten more of them
And for all the misanthropic retardos in this thread: grow up.
HUrrdurr I don't like kids hah ha hah I am so edgey and cool am I rite guys?? Guys?? 13 year olds sure do deserve to be raped hurrf. It's so cool to not like people and not even bother trying to understand why the people around me behave the way they do. That takes too much effort. Effort I could be expending on being cool. Also it requires social skills... sigh.
MAYBE WHEN YOU GUYS ARE DONE TRYING TO STOMP ALL OVER THE ABSOLUTELY INTENSE AWESOME OF THIS CHARITABLE ACT, YOU CAN JERK AND SQUIRT OVER PENNY ARCADE BECAUSE NO DOUBT WHEN THE FAMOUS DONATE IT IS AWESOME, AM I RITE GUYS
just a polite interjection
are you tolerant of others having a different opinion to yourself?
you say you are a tolerant person, and I have no doubt you are a compassionate person too given your obvious love for kids
however insulting people or suggesting that they are misanthropic for having a different opinion on children(and some of the arguments have been valid) is really at odds
I like children by the way, but some of the reasons that others have given have merit
well done on donating the toys, that's a great thing, but SHOUTING at people who have a different opinion does nothing to bring positive opinions to your cause
I don't often complain about capslocks, but it is like shouting in someones face, and I'm sure you'd hate that too in real life
Man I remember a time when I was all I HATE KIDS GRAGHGHRARHG but dang
I was like 16 or so
And I failed to realize this IMPORTANT FACT OF LIFE: Lots of kids ARE PRETTY FREAKING AWESOME/ADORABLE (though uh I personally would not feel responsible enough to take care of children as I am of the opinion that I am PRETTY DANGED IRRATIONAL and WHATNOT)
