Sorry for the profanity.
I just got done yelling at the TV. Anne Curry was interviewing Nadya Suleman, the mother of the octuplets that were born in CA last week.
Nadya, for those of you who've been living in a vacum, is a single mother. An unemployed single mother who lives with her parents and already has 6 other children, all the products of in vitro fertilization, under the age of 7.
She claims, in this interview, that she's being criticized for having all these children because of her 'unconventional' lifestyle. She said that "couples don't get criticized for this because they're in a conventional lifestyle" and went on to add that her being a single parent was unconventional and that's why people are pissed at her.
It was that comment that made me shout at the TV.
"IT'S NOT JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE SINGLE, IT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A FUCKING JOB OR A PLACE TO LIVE, YOU STUPID CUNT!!! IT'S BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS GOING TO HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR FUCKED UP LIFESTYLE CHOICES AND YOUR DUMBASS DECISION MAKING, BITCH!!!!"
Yeah, I dropped the 'C' bomb. You know it's bad when I bust that out...
Again, sorry for the profanity.
But it's true. She DOESN'T have a job. Or a home. In fact, she's had a couple of homes go into foreclosure on her fairly recently. And now she has 14 children to provide for. Unless she's incredibly wealthy, she's never going to be able to afford adequate daycare for all 14 of them - so it's just not going to be worth her while to go back to work. Which means, gentle reader, that you and I and every other taxpaying worker in this country will end up footing the bill for these kids.
I wrote an article a while back about how I'm all about freedom and people being able to live the life they choose for themselves - but that freedom often comes at a price so you'd best be prepared to finance your lifestyle yourself.
Words for Ms Suleman to live by, I think.
By the way, I swear she's had some cosmetic surgery. Those lips are far too bulky and 'trout pout'-ish to be real.
