the reproductive perogative

Responsible for second class citizenship status and worse in religious and other "morality" constructs has gotten so ridiculously dated in a world of nearly 8 billion humans. The birth of a new mouth to feed, so celebrated, so held in reverence, so legislated beyond all common sense (see Texas) has only become nonsense in a world so strained for the resources, so competitive that starvation, plagues, all of nature's fury still battle to control it. Think of the wishes of most every parent-- for their child/children to "have it better than they did", ignorant of the victims who starve, the moral judgements and oppositional justification complexes, the ultimately self-destructive pride becoming far more apparent as greed. I watched as the "greatest generation" lived retirements only possible for the very few now.
Nature knows 7 billion adult humans cannot be driving powerful, self-propelled fossil fuel vehicles without complete planetary calamity, already embarrasingly apparent.
Even right here in "progressive" discussion boards, these greed seeds seep in. Lately I had a dead-end discussion with a DU'er regarding an apparent stuck in "morality" objection this person had to retention of the rainbow flag in a classroom? And I've been racking my brain trying to figure out exactly what the objection to one of the most benign symbols of equality comes from. Perhaps a possibly delusional denial like "My child won't be gay"? This member's objection to this symbol remained unexplained.
Denial solves nothing. I find little else more honorable in this world than those willing to accept the responsibility of taking care of a ready-made child, hats off Pete and Chasten.
Yes, many must get it through their greatest-generation mindset that yes, your child might be gay. Your child might not and yet not have any desire to produce you biological grandchildren because you find that desirable. Because you have some sense of security, a bit more shaken lately, of the idea that your money, investments and resources are infallable?
We can reverse "overshoot day", but it will take far more personal commitment than even many DU'ers are willing to admit to. Let's get real:
