Kids Having Kids
It’s a goddamn epidemic. We are not in a third-world country. We do not lack access to information. So why are so many young girls having kids? Getting pregnant isn’t even the issue anymore. The fact that these young girls are going through with the pregnancies, is. You HAVE a choice and that choice affects more than just you. Sure you blow up and get morning sickness and weird cravings and eventually have to push a watermelon out your peehole. But then who is going to pay for that $9,000 hospital bill? And who is going to buy all those baby supplies? And what about insurance and doctor visits? You really want to throw that hardship on your family? Oh no wait, you’ll get by with foodstamps, WIC, and basically the taxpayers’ money.
Do not misunderstand me. I support those government programs that help out those that need it. Everyone needs some help sometimes. Foodstamps can be a godsend for families and individuals struggling or just barely making it by. And WIC is an amazing resource. However…when you are 16 and 17 and 18 (and even younger, I’ve seen) and you are calling on those resources because YOU decided it would be a good idea to have a kid when you are a kid yourself…shame. When you think about it, it’s a little rude to be using someone else’s tax money for your poor decision. You wouldn’t need them if you had put more thought into your life.
Just take a step back for a second and really think if you really want to bring a new life into your current situation. JUST THINK FOR ONCE!
And not just the girls. These little boys running around sticking their pecker in anything that has a pulse and telling them it’s because of ‘love.’ Shame on you, too. Guaranteed, there is nothing wrong with your hand. Instead of spending money on that fake gold chain, those useless shoes that will be out of style by next month, or that cap to go with the rest of your collection, go buy a box of condoms. Take some damn responsibility. If you think you’re grown enough to have sex, be grown enough to buy condoms.
Talk about goddamn tunnel vision.
There are so many options out there but for one reason or another, they are not utilized.
I guess religion has played a role into this problem. There are religions that don’t allow birth control to begin with. Good for them. But you know what? Your god isn’t going to pay your bills or put food on the table. You can’t tell the hospital to bill your god for the delivery costs. Your landlord sure as hell isn’t going to accept that.
“Yeah, just fax an invoice to him. He’ll take care of me.”
No. That’s not how it works.
Why would you bring a new being into this world without knowing that you can provide for them without significant struggle?
“Because if it’s supposed to happen, god will make it happen.”
No. Use your brain. It’s simple biology. The sperm is supposed to find the egg.
After a while, it’s almost like these kids are doing it on purpose. How hard is it to use a condom? How hard is it to get on the pill? Or, and this is just the wildest idea of all, how hard is it to just not have sex?
99% of the time I honestly feel as though sex is overrated. It’s a process, it’s a hassle, it’s messy. I would rather sleep. Or go eat some delicious food.
