From Stacy McCain's post on that icon of modern feminism, Amanda Marcot: Wow! Amanda Marcotte Really Hates Babies: ‘Time-Sucking Monsters’
Marcotte’s bloodthirsty zeal for baby-killing is notorious, and so we aren’t really surprised when she makes statements like this:As I've said before in a similar context "Thank you for not breeding!" Is it over the top to suggest that having the decision made a generation or two earlier might have been nice?
“I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter howmuch free day care you throw at women, babies are stilltime-sucking monsters with their constant neediness.”. . .
So why does Amanda Marcotte hate babies so much? Because she is supremely and shamelessly selfish:
No matter how flexible you make my work schedule, my entire life would be overturned by a baby. I like my life how it is, with my ability to do what I want when I want without having to arrange for a babysitter. I like being able to watch True Detective right now and not wait until baby is in bed. I like sex in any room of the house I please. I don’t want a baby. I’ve heard your pro-baby arguments. Glad those work for you, but they are unconvincing to me. Nothing will make me want a baby. . . .Even the staunchest pro-lifer must consider she makes a point: It’s probably best that such hatefully selfish people not reproduce.
I like not having a giant growth protruding out of my stomach. I hate hospitals and like not having stretch marks. . . .
