A few days ago Michelle Duggar announced that she was pregnant with her 19th child. Yes, you read correctly 19th! All of the world was in joy when they made their announcement on television. Nineteen children. She even has a grandchild on the way as well. I’m all for a woman doing whatever she wants with her cervix, but I think they’re taking the concept of ‘going forth and multiplying’ a little too far.
As a mother of just 1 child, my mind can’t even begin to grasp the concept of having 18 more children running around the house. Apparently, the Duggar’s, because of their religious background, have opt out of using birth control. To each his own, I suppose. Birth control definitely has it’s pros and cons. I’m not even going to blame Michelle Duggar’s lack of birth control use or her husband’s apparent super sperm, I blame the media and networks like the Discovery Channel for giving out free shit to people who go forth and multiply.
Seriously, why can’t I get some free shit?
Do I really have to push out litters of children in order to live in a 3000+ square foot house? I truly don’t think that the Duggar’s make that much money from the commercial properties they own. If that was the case, why did the Discovery Network purchase them a house? I’m sure one of those commercial properties would have been large enough to hold all of them.
Then you have Octomom.
Who was apparently addicted to invitro. Everyone called her crazy and an unfit mother, because she went out and had all of those kids, without having the financial means to pay for them. As if the State of California didn’t have enough budget and financial issues, now they’re responsible for paying her medical bills. Give the woman a reality TV show, so she can pay her damn bills then!
What I find strange is that, no one is calling the Duggars unfit parents. In my opinion, parents who support the fact that their daughters can’t attend college, or take part in ‘male activities’, refuses pre-natal care and forces their children to take on ‘traditional’ ultra conservative gender roles, are quite unfit.
Last but not least, how can I forget about Jon & Kate Plus 8.
I’m not sure if they’re kids should be more embarrassed that their mother wears some odd looking mohawulletob (mohawk/mullet/bob), or the fact their father can’t seem to find anything to wear besides ugly ass Ed Hardy T-shirts. I truly think these kids more than likely will suffer from PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome) once someone at TLC decides to cancel this train wreck of a show. I truly feel sorry for them. I even feel more sorry for John, because, he’s the oldest looking 32 year old man I’ve ever seen. Life has truly been hard on his aesthetics.
So there you have it, three very distinct situations, where apparently people are treating their cervix like the black hole and those tiny little circus clown cars. I guess as long as they can make a profit from their reproductive systems, they’ll keep on pushing out these babies. I’m just waiting for the first black family of multiples to get their own show. Hmmm…I won’t hold my breath on that one.
