why do people have kids?
Posted 5/14/08
People would like their family name and their legacy to continue when they pass on and who else to carry that torch than that of their kids? And why would having kids be stupid?? I'm sure you're happy to be living.

for new generations to continue...
but two kids enough... having more will add to overpopulation in the world...
parents say their kids make them happy but others end up the other way...
i recommend the movie "anak"...

People are humans. Humans are animals. Animals mate to reproduce. In other words, people have kids because it's natural to have them.

People want kids because they want to become parents. It is not stupid because it is only natural for someone to decide that they want to have kids. It is nature's way.

Oh yeah, if some guys here think people who have kids are stupid, then doesn't that make your parents stupid as well? O_o

People have kids because the human race depends on it.

I think OP is masquerading as a girl, but is really a 12 year old dude. Anyways, when you gain some maturity and hit puberty you will realize that there are only 2 parts of human nature, Survival and Reproduction. Pretty much everyone has the survival part down, reproduction is a bit harder. If you don't ever reproduce, what is the point in living?

The reason you exist is to live, and multiply.


Really? Can you prove that this is our reason for existence? Even if you only speak in terms of biology (anatomy, urges, etc.), there is no demonstrable, objective purpose behind life. That I was born with the capacity to reproduce and the desire to have sex does not necessarily govern my life nor lead to multiplication.


Animals are born, grow, and then mate. Thats what we were originally made to do as well.


Originally made to do? Unless you believe that we were created by some divine being, that doesn't make much sense when we consider the blindness of evolution. As a group--generally speaking, that is--we have certain characteristics conducive to the continuation of our species, but things change when we consider individuals.

You're right that this is a silly question, though. For every reason I would personally give to not have children, there is a reason that someone else might give to have them, and sometimes there may be no explanation behind the desire besides biology anyway.

because god(or evolution) made sex feel good.... plus their is something in carrying on your family name, traditions, and such....if none had kids you wouldn't be here.....
Posted 5/14/08
because even though kids are really something very hard to handle they do occasionally treat you right and its nice knowing that they love you...


or sometimes its cuz you're stupid and believe the guy when he says that he'll pull out on time....or you're stupid and decide not to use a condom...

And it is equally "natural" to not have children insofar as it takes place in nature for natural reasons. It's a dangerous word to throw around. As for your last point: saying that people who have kids are stupid is indeed silly, but it's not hypocritical in the way you suggest. I did not choose to be born, nor would I be around to care if I hadn't been; my personal problems with having children remain. I don't need to universalize it to hold it true for my own life.

You speak of maturity, yet you offer an overly simplistic view of human nature. Unfortunately, the world doesn't fit into such convenient systems. Furthermore, you suggest that reproduction is the point of life when that is really only one possibility. People can affirm their existence in their job, their relationships, their hobbies... anything. I certainly do not consider reproduction to be the point of my life.

Oh damn, I thought you were the OP.

Anyway, looks like I overgeneralized my first sentence. I should have also written the thing you said, that it is also natural to decide not to have children. Must've skipped my mind x_x

My last point is an attack to the OP. He did say that people who have children are stupid, so I typed that. I cannot just let someone say that because it also applies to my parents. O_o
