"Birthstrikers:" The Women Refusing to Have Children Until We Fix the Global Warming That Will Destroy the Earth in 12 Years

A beautiful cure to congenital neuroticism and borderline personality disorder.

I applaud their decision to self-exile from the human genetic pool.

I think falling human average IQ scores just started falling a little less quickly.



Legal Insurrection (the first link) gathers up some responses to this CNN Clickbait. Here are a couple, more at the link.


From the CNN "story," which isn't a story, it's a combination press release and clickbait:

So far, over 330 people have joined, of which Pepino estimates 80% are women.

...

In 2018, the UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned the planet only has 11 years to prevent catastrophic climate change.

...

They made a similar End of World countdown in the 1980s, then the 1990s.

...

BirthStrike is one of a number of groups around the world that are questioning the ethics of having children in a warming world. Conceivable Future, a network of women in America, was founded in 2015 to bring awareness to "the threat climate change poses to reproductive justice," although that group's members haven't discounted having children.

"The data says there's a ticking clock," said Josephine Ferorelli, a co-founder of the group. "The 11-year window more or less approximates a lot of our reproductive windows as well.

Perfect.

"What kind of harm will a hotter and more painful world inflict on my child? Nobody has the answers for that," she said.

Sure they do. Contact the Phoenix, Arizona tourism office for the answers.

...

In March, US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told her 3 million Instagram followers, "there's a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult... is it still ok to have children?"

It seems there's an overlap between the women advocating not having children for global warming reasons and the women advocating not having children for feminism reasons.

...

Nor should the groups be conflated with the anti-natalist movement, the philosophy that it's morally wrong to procreate, because of the suffering that comes with life.

Um, they should be conflated, because they're all in the umbrella of the same anti-human, human-self-extiction movement. The Anti-Natalists don't want children because the world is so painful, the BirthStrikers don't want children because the world is painful -- and hot.

In what way are these groups different, except for a slightly different level of emphasis on weather?

And, by the way, Anti-Natalists routinely list "global warming" as one of the many ills that children are born into.
