"How to continue within a species that has become so emphatically suicidal?" Blythe Pepino wants children but refuses to have them in the face of climate catastrophe. She told Brut why she became a birth striker.

    well at least we can rest assured her genes won't be passed on. Thank God for that. Her man can still dump her and find a normal level headed woman to have kids with .

    This is like fighting obesity by cuting your legs. Sure, globally, you will weight less, but the real problem is not solved. Earth is overpopulate. More or less. But the major impact on the numbers is not that of the shrinking western white population. Is that of the people in Africa and Asia. That is the place where the problem is located

    It’s frustrating to read the comments on this post, the same people who campaign for pro choice and for women to chose what they do to their OWN bodies, are the same ones slandering her for her decision to not have children. I do think that her ‘strike’ won’t serve a purpose, definitely not in the short term, perhaps in the long term it will have a bigger impact - and that’s what we should all be hoping for anyway! Who in their right mind would consciously have a child when they’re in a situation where they feel they’re not capable of caring for that child? Whether it be financial or personal, everyone’s circumstances are different; you all just have this ridiculous belief that you get some say over someone else’s body and what they do with it. I’m a strong believer of raising kids, and not just sticking them in front of a screen to ‘educate’ them, at the rate the world is going, I don’t want to live in it, never mind forcing someone else to. Some of ya’ll really never questioned ur own existence and it shows🤠✌🏻
