jennifer, let me quote back your reply in that thread;
"Overall I think having kids is the least of our eco-worries and maybe a solution, not a problem. For example, my son is way more eco-friendly than I was at his age, and he'll grow up (like other kids being raised green) to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. It's like teaching language. It's hard to teach an adult, but easy to teach a kid. Maybe we should focus more on how we raise kids rather than if we have them or not."
now, to me that is not so very different from the last frame in this strip;
yes maybe that comic is disrespectful, and why not? you obviously didnt read the well thought out commentary that made up the rest of the page.
sure kids are lovely, but they turn into adults, and ones that will consume at least as much as their parents. we have 2 kids from 3 siblings, i am pretty proud of that, its a gently diminishing family instead of a growing one.
Russ, you are using the 'selfish' argument on me, how dare you!
a goodly dose of doublethink
from both of you. shame.Edited by gerda - 8/10/09 at 2:11pm
