With tweets like this one, we’re shocked Boston Review doesn’t have a blue check.

From Boston Review:
Having a child, like heterosexuality, is a very stupid idea. It will not end well—for you, your friends, the planet. Others may applaud and encourage you. Do not be deceived: they are just being nice. Children are a cancer. Shulamith Firestone’s program in The Dialectic of Sex (1970) isn’t just insane for wanting to outsource childbirth to the machines. The automation of gestational labor is a modest proposal next to the notion that humankind should be reproducing at all. What’s crazier, believing in people pods or just believing in people? Compare Valerie Solanas in the SCUM Manifesto (1967), skeptical of even her own plan for cybernetic parthenogenesis: “Why should there be future generations? What is their purpose?”
Ok, true story, that’s as far as we could get into the piece without throwing up all over our keyboard.
This is so stupid, stupid people look at it and say, ‘Damn, that’s stupid.’
That or they’re just desperate for attention … maybe a little bit of both.

Not a damn thing.
Not deleting your account is a stupid idea.

Exactly the face we made when we read it.
Well, when we read part of it.
