Malthus

Why are all of you gloating of your children on a podcast which warns us not to have children?

Furthermore, why do you promote not having children, while having yours read the credits?

Love kids too, but please don’t let them tolerate hypocrisy.

It’s not empowering, nor is teaching them to be victims. That’s your issue, not theirs.
