DISLIKES CHILDREN?

Really? Is that a common answer? That's almost SICK!

Kateri

most often the men that i'm matched with are "likes children but doesn't want any" which i can totally respect. but occasionally there's one who chooses "dislikes children" and that just sets me off. nobody who chooses to say that they actively dislike children will EVER get a date with me. fuckers.

Yeah, my profile specifically says I will not reply to any emails from people who say they dislike children.

You know, even my adamantly child-free family-like members (family friends but wear the title of aunt and uncle) "LIKE" children. They just didn't want their own.

People. Good times.

Great blog post.

I wouldn't blog it on the site, I'd send it to the administrators. Then again, maybe it is a useful tool to weed out truly unthoughtful people - therefore my answer is don't send to admin OR blog (because if it's not there or you influence someone to change their answer you won't get the REAL answer). Now, THAT is what's really fucked up.

Also, I really hate the "I hate children" mindset because it perpetuates this idea that children should be separate from society, rather than integrated into it as whole persons. Such a society condones and encourages the silence surrounding child abuse. Child victims aren't going to come forward when it's clear to them that they are not welcome in the adult world. As a mother and as an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse, that is some up with which I cannot put.

Sorry to get all political there in the comments. I'm just feeling it today.

Kateri

wow, good point superla. i hadn't event thought of that.

@sarah- i thought of sending it to the administrators, but like you said, it would remove an important bad-attitude red flag. but, i'm leaning toward posting it, just to see what people say.

there's one person in particular who i have a very high match percentage with who blogged about how something in my profile offended him. he chose "dislikes children" and he's also, judging from his profile, a two-bit asshole. i want to see if he takes the bait.

all in a day's entertainment :)

So, did you post it or not? (I haven't read the most recent posts, so you might)

GREAT post, BTW... The things you said definitely need to be said to people who choose to dislike children for some unfathomable reason.

haven't dated in decades but I take anyone noting they don't like kids as a serious sign of maladjustment. BEWARE!

If it's amusing I'm sure the dialogue could also be worthwhile. It gives people (like me) something to talk about.
