your loud, vocal annoyance and disgust towards children is not neutral just because you don’t have/plan on having children. you are still adding to and upholding a culture that allows child abuse to happen. it doesn’t matter if this is your intent or not.
children cannot communicate very well, they don’t know that adults can be wrong, and they don’t understand concepts like abuse. all they know is that they’re hurt and upset, and when this happens their behavior changes. their cries for help are written off, they’re just “crybabies” or “acting out.” abusers know this and use it to their advantage.
assigned… at birth? holy shit, that assignment must be so overdue, i hope this gender doesn’t effect my GPA
Lots of us were given lessons on how to stand up to bullies at school, but I’m interested to know if anyone was taught not to bully?
