Want to save the enviroment? Switch to Sodomy! - February 11th 2010, 07:13 PM

Okay, okay, the title is a bit of a joke. But the reality behind it is quite startling.

This: http://oregonstate.edu/ua/ncs/archiv...ental-emphasis is a statement from Oregon University after conduction research into the environmental impact of having children. As the study states avoiding having one child can be up to "20 times more important" than making sure you recycle properly or using energy-efficent electricals.

I'm sure nobody will take this seriously, but look on the bright side- next time some eco-warrior tells you how much they're saving the environment you can tell them to stop being such a hypocrite as one of, if not the biggest man-made factor in climate change is quite simply, overpopulation.

I find this hilarious, although serious. Overpopulation is a problem at the moment, but we can't do much about it. The sad part is, Sodomy is illegal in some of the States, including mine.

Birth control helps save the earth
Another good reason to be on it.

Really? That's retarded -_-;; How the hell would they even enforce such a farce of a law?

Anyways, getting back on topic:
Lol, this did make me laugh. But as Cas said, overpopulation is one of those things that we're just going to keep doing because humanity is...well, stupid -_-;;

^^ It's true. The best way to combat that is to shift our resources so we have a lesser standard of living to accommodate the exponentially growing population. How willing are we to sacrifice our standard of living for the sake of the environment? Any takers? xD

The Supreme Court over turned sodomy laws in all states in 2003... so it cant be considered illegal, and if it is, you'll never be convicted.

Hey, China is already working on the whole overpopulation thing.
Yes, it's probably because China itself is really overpopulated, but that doesn't mean the rest of the world isn't. Compared to the populations of other species, even America is really overpopulated.

I don't plan on having kids. If you couldn't tell. I mean, if I did, I'd probably eat it before too long. lol



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Also, just to clarify in regards to my previous post, I was being completely, 100% sincere. I just realised that sounded sarcastic.

Its because you can only have one child right? I'm not positive... but if it is, I personally see nothing wrong with it. I guess its a human rights thing or whatever , but I wish the government could be allowed to tell you how many kids to have. Then I wouldnt get annoyed at the grocery store by the woman in her scooter cart thing with her 5 unruly kids. I don't see the point in having more than 2 kids... maybe back when you needed them to help run the farm or something. That show 17/18/19 kids and counting pisses me off.


When reality is a prison, your mind can set you free.

Exactly. I'm not sure we should be exactly punishing people for having more than one kid, because sometimes it's unplanned (half the time that’s due to stupidity) but also there's the whole rape and pregnancy thing. But as a society we're encouraging bad behavior and things bad for our environment, world, economy, ext... I hate how much attention things like "Octomom" get and stuff. We really don't need a bunch of people having eight plus kids... much less 19 plus kids!

I mean, I know any second now someone is going to pop in here preaching how they've been raised in a big family and how it's their dream to have their own big family blah..blah..blah... Honestly, I don't care Part of me says people should be able to have however many kids they want, but really, there are enough people in the world. What's so wrong with adopting?



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
