An insult to Mothers! Or would you prefer to have been born Backwards?




An Insult to Mothers - Who Don't Claim Perfection
I do wonder at the mentality of some people:"Our 7-month-old gr/gr daughter is bonding with her nanny so strongly that at night she cries for her. This is really upsetting her parents as they spend a lot of time with their daughter -- they give her breakfast, bathe her, and play with her for one to two hours every day.

They are worried that she's more attached to her nanny than she is to her parents. What should I do? they are both asking me.

"The obvious answer is to stop living the Special K lifestyle, and give your daughter some attention and then she might realise that you are her mother or father and not some stranger who pops in and out of her life. But we live in an age of post-Feminism, in which women need to be men to prove they are women - or some such thing - but the important thing is to keep the money rolling in, hence the venal and stupid hire nannies. And woe betide anyone who accuses a woman of not being a good mother:"It really angers me to hear stay-at-home mums assuming that working mums work so that they can buy their kids the latest "hot" toys and other unimportant material things. even if you are very well paid your child does not have a need for designer clothes or a Bugaboo--the child has all what it needs on hand; PARENTS -including (most importantly) an immense amount of love and support from them.


I have been told, "How dare you assume that working mums work for the wrong reasons. You have no idea what you are talking about". "That's right love, you are selflessly ignoring your child in order to give it all the things in life that you never had. And those stay-at-home mums are the not only greedily hogging their children, but they are damaging the economy. And if it wasn't for people like you, the world would collapse. Not that I am suggesting child rearing is a woman's job. If the father wants to do it and the mother wants to go out to work then fine.If you want to see the extent of the madness of those that employ nannies then read on. That's right folks, you can sip your frapaccino and grass up a nanny on your blackberry. Sure fine, it's a class thing. But more fundamentally child rearing is a question of sacrifice: and more specifically a sacrifice of your time. And a related topic is IVF. Unless you are a creationist or some other kind of egotist stuck with the infantile belief that you a were personally created by God, you will be aware of the theory of evolution. You will also be aware that human beings are members of the animal kingdom: specifically mammals of the species Homo Sapiens of the Hominid family.You will no doubt have watched wild life programs and seen the variety of tactics used by animals and plants to display their reproductive potency and attract a mate.Now I am fully aware that mankind (humanity) has done many things at a basic level, such as clothing and building houses, and at a more advanced level, such as banding together in settlements and passing on knowledge through writing, to diminish the effects of nature upon the species. But the fact remains that we are animals. A study of IVF compiled by the human fertilisation and embryology authority between 2000 and 2006. You will see that male infertility is the biggest single cause for couples seeking infertility treatment. In 2000, it was 27.6% but by 2006 that figure had risen to 32.5%.This is either some environmental factor at work, or women have ceased to be able to read the signals of what will make a good biological partner; choosing to go down the path prescribed by women's magazines such as Cosmopolitan, by choosing partners who can fulfill their dreams of conspicuous consumption.I am informed that women's magazines are not permitted in female psychiatric units because they are considered to hinder recovery because of the negative self image they promote.I would suggest the HFEA does it's cause no good by choosing to highlight Ruth's Story".

.......vest.



Ruth was 39 when her sister challenged her to make her dream of motherhood a reality. Aware that her fertility was declining, but without a partner, Ruth remembered a friend's suggestion that they should have a baby together. Ruth goes on to say, after my sister asked me what I was going to do about having children, I felt I should make an informed choice about whether I could have a baby. Given my age and medical history (I had had treatment for endometriosis), my clinic said that IVF using donated sperm would give me the best chance of success. I decided to have treatment with a 'known donor', my friend Nico, not least because I was concerned about my child not knowing its father (this was before the lifting of donor anonymity). This meant a frustrating six month wait before treatment could begin, while Nico's sperm was screened."Now leave aside the fact that only 1 in 5 treatments is successful, in that it ends with a baby, leaving a great amount of human material to be disposed of. And that children born as a result of IVF have a 6.2% chance of being born with a defect, against 4.4% of children conceived normally. Can it really be the case that a mother who has undergone IVF is a 'better' mother?Yes she may well have paid money, and some might say bought it. But is that a genuine criteria of worth?Using that logic, the 'best' kind of women are men who have had a sex change. And the one reason overlooked when considering the fall in male fertility, is the increasing number of women in the workforce, which in turn fuelled a house price boom, which in turn led to houses that once could be bought on a single average wage needed a dual income to manage the mortgage repayments. And if you don't believe me, consider the causes of inflation.Of course it is heresy to say any of this. And proof of my jealous nature that I dare criticise my richer and betters.

The problem is anyone with half a brain, knows this is right.

Now here's a thought...

Living Life Backwards.
I want to live my next life backwards.
You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an
old age home feeling better every day. Then you get kicked out for
being too healthy.

Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension. Then when you start
work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work 40 years until
you're too young to work.

You get ready for High School, drink alcohol, party, and you're generally promiscuous.

Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, and you
have no responsibilities.

Then you become a baby, and then...
You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in
spa-like conditions - central heating, room service on tap, and
then..........

You finish off as an orgasm.

I rest my case………………………!

Lol! I agree that if you choose to have them, then choose to rear them ... but I chose not to have any at all. I am glad that modern times meant that I had that choice and exercised it.

Aggie: The blind ecstatic moment of fulfilment, overrides the spectre of a long term binding responsibility.
