Yet for some reason, the models that are viewed as the de facto standard for beauty are all skinny-ass ho's who wouldn't be able to give birth lest they snap in half from the weight. Fux that. I want a real woman.
Goatboy wrote:While I agree with your idea, it is sounding a bit Third Reich-y for my taste. The way I see it:
1.) The human race really doesn't have natural predators anymore. We live in large, protected cities, so bears and the like are not much of a threat anymore. When we do face wild animals, we have guns to protect ourselves. We keep people alive decades past their time due to medical advances.
Because of this, we are free to reproduce instead of worrying about survival. We don't have to put as much time into gathering food, so our population grows as a result of all the fuxing. The simple truth is, people are supposed to die. At times, it seems as if Earth is a living organism, always fighting to stay in balance. We create vaccines; Earth creates better viruses. We overpopulate; hunger kills us off. Clearly, we're pissing something off.
2.) Now I don't honestly think Earth is a sentient being, but the point still stands. The ecosystem is fairly fragile. It's trying to keep us in check, and we're fighting it every step of the way. We need to stop keeping comatose patients alive for months. We need to let people die when they are ready, instead of keeping our elderly in hospice care. We need to stop being so protective of people who are not contributing. There is a reason the slowest gazelle gets eaten.
I'm ranting, so my thoughts aren't as clear as I'd like them to be, but hopefully you got where I am coming from.
3.) On a more cynical note, we should kill off the lowest 10% of the IQ every 10 years, which will raise the average IQ, lower the population, and promote educational competition.
