It's pretty unslefish f'sure.
ow selfish is Mother Teressa. That bitch was always thinking about herself.
Nothing would be thought of it if you didn't give birth. You don't have baby's to keep the human race alive, you have them to have something soft to poke.
i don't necessarily think it's selfish but i dunno. Just randomly thought about it lately.
never tried it
what's it like?
but more selfish
but they give you drugs, right?
if it ever happens to me!
I'm a little confused as to how giving birth can be described as "selfish" in all instances?
but people give birth because they want to have babies...not because they want to help populate the planet.
there're rather too many of us already
because they have an overwhelming urge to. Same as eating/having sex/sleeping. If we didn't the human race would die out.
Also granting someone life is pretty unselfish. Whereas I would say, in retrospect, killing someone is say... selfish.
Richard Dawkins' 'The Selfish Gene'
class it as a selfish act. It's a woman's right to be able to have a child, if she so wishes. The ability is there for it to happen so I wouldn't brand it "selfish" personally
If you have a right, that means that someone else has a duty to provide it. No one has a duty to provide a baby for you
Do you want money for the money, or so that you can keep the economy going?
but I personally would find it hard to give birth to my own child knowing that not only were there so many other children out there needing parents, but that whatever child I had would just be brought up in an even worse world than the one we live in today. (this may just be because I hate children and don't like the idea of giving birth though).nI dunno, it depends what way you look at it, I'm fairly pessimistic so that's my approach on the whole thing.
It's not selfish at all.
END OF THREAD.
but you could possibly look at it that way. Despite what my post said, I don't feel it's selfish, I just think I have wierd feelings towards the whole concept. But I just put that down to my age.
I DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN. I HATE YOU ALL. I'M HAVING MY DINNER IN MY BEDROOM.
Selfish is the wrong word. But I see what less_than_zero is attempting to say
I'm not saying it is massively selfish. Just wanted some form of discussion on something other then giant things and grammar. I thought it was well deep. Like that knife in my black heart.
anyway, so that's fair enough!
it's what you do when you run out of ambitions for yourself.
That would be cool.
Don't compare money with babies you sick fuck.
not giant grammer.
having a kick about at Plymouth Grammar school
whilst watching friends (ross was annoyed with carol and her lesbian partner about the baby's name - with hilarious consequences) and i thought to myself, why exactly would i want to see the woman i love in intense pain for several hours?
My history lecturer reckons we can best aid our country by having loads of kids and smoking and drinking as much as we possibly can, so we don't weigh down the state with old age and we provide a youthful population.
But frankly yes, that's a selfish view in light of the exponential population of the human race as a whole.
