Save the babies!
This may be one of those things that’s irritating to people who really want but have not yet managed to have, and also doubtless to people who don’t particularly want but are constantly being told that they should want…children, because it’s got a flavor of you can’t possibly understand unless (although, hey, what’s wrong with that? There are in fact lots of things you can’t possibly understand unless, but yes, who likes hearing that as it’s awfully dismissive), but I have to say, I’ve been surprised by the extent to which even fictional depictions (to say nothing of non-fictional ones) of horrible things happening to children now make me sick. I’ve always been more on the delicate flower side when it comes to confronting horrors, but now? Oof. When we watch movies or TV shows, I can often be found crying out SAVE THE BABIES!
I know this is a THING that happens to a lot of people when they become parents. I wonder if there’s something adaptive about not having it be there from birth, or if perhaps there’s something maladaptive about not having it be there from birth. Like would the world be a better place if everyone had it in spades?
Anyhow, this photo series brought to you by SAVE THE BABIES! Because I DO still have a sense of humor.
