    Social programs are not a right

    All these things benefit society, all of these things you use every day, all of these things you pay into with taxes and not one of them is a right guaranteed by the constitution.

    When you start complaining about these, start generating your own power, forging and building your own plumbing hookups, dispose of your own garbage, take yourself off every possible social program, homeschool your children, and take up arms to defend yourself.. only then can you complain about fucking maternity leave.

    Till then, you're a ridiculous hypocrite with an imaginary line in the sand where you'll use THOUSANDS of things every day that aren't rights, but get in a huff about 1 other item that isn't a right either all because you have some enormous anti-child chip on your shoulder... and that's coming from someone who hates kids.

    Really. It's so stupid.
    I don't know about you but I use public roads and indoor plumbing much more frequently than I go to the doctor. And you might hate kids but I don't and never said I did. I also do dispose of my own garbage and am armed and capable of defending myself, glad to know you care.

    yeah but the point is it's not about what you use the most or not. we all have to pay for stuff we don't like with our taxes. that's part of living in a society. and IMO parental leave is part of making the workplace more family friendly, putting gender equality into practice and making sure women aren't punished professionally for choosing to have children. and that's something all women should applaud, whether they choose to have kids or not.

    Aren't you independent! Go out and find an wilderness to inhabit then, if belonging to a society is so abhorrent to you. Just don't take anything this society created, okay? That's not playing fair.

    Better yet, join those societies that don't pay taxes and get nothing from the government, like the favelas of Brazil or the slums of Mumbai. That gun will REALLY help you there.

    Drink the water from their fetid open sewers. Pick through trash to make a few cents a day. It will be a blast! You won't owe the ebil gov't a dime and never have to support someone else's kids.
    CHILLY FREE!

    Awesome. I'm sure I can find some rural tax paying citizens that don't want to support your toilet flushing or driving despite you using such services.

    And you might hate kids but I don't and never said I did.

    Great. All you have to do is generate your own power, buy products that aren't government certified or tested, and go utterly off the grid and then you can whine about freaking maternity leave.
