A bulletin I forgot to repost. On Bullshit science and neo-eugenics.

"People shouldn't have kids unless they can afford them".

It may be sorta true. But I'm tired of hearing this.

People should have kids when they deem themselves ready, should be the replacement.

Hmmm.

If people "waited until they had money" to have kids the third world would be extinct. And people of color would've made up like .5% of the American population by 1960. Because when people say "overpopulation" they don't mean whites or the elite, do they?

So only wealthy people should have kids then? Very similar to Margaret Sanger's approach, but just the newer version.

Abortion is an undeniable right that is necessary whether in capitalism or not. But what would make it MORE necessary in capitalism?

-The fact that undesirable candidates should not produce offspring. Kids need two parents, one male one female to be "stable". Yet, patriarchy produces shitty fathers for very logical reasons whom even if they are in the home are not "really there". (most of you know what I mean). While most children whether they are rich or poor never spend any reasonable amount of time with their fathers, then what difference does it make in the first place? Even married mom's are single mom's when it comes to raising children.

-Being "married" before having kids is certainly an easier solution but it is designed to of course leave black women and non-straight people in general out of the suitable "parent" category.

-Wait until you have a "house" to have kids. Newsflash. Most people whom are low income, rent their homes.

-In order to "plan" to have kids you have to be suburban, married, parents must be stabilly employed, you must have a mini-van etc., is this the new way of saying "whites are more fit to have children"? And that poor women "cannot afford them" so should not have them until they "can"? And if people are born into their class, doesn't this mean NEVER?

-With all the crazy fucked up and mentally unstable people across the board, it is clear that your social status has nothing to do with your effectiveness as a parent.

I am confused/torn on this issue of . But me and peeps discussed it at dinner and I thought this was worth bringing up.

On an unconnected note:

Not only are black women naturally "stronger" and built for sexual exploitation and labor, but science has now confirmed that our vagina's/reproductive organs are "naturally" stronger too. What other conclusion could POSSIBLY come from this article (It is meant for doctors, not patients whom now have internalized this idea making it alllll the more dangerous).
