No not at all, these kids are.going to go through what they are going to go through. Of COURSE you want these kids to be okay and loved by their parents but in my experience that's just not going to happen.

I take comfort in that so many of these people will have non-binary or Trans children and they are either going to have to face their ignorance or lose a kid.

To be 100% honest with you, I'm not trying to be mean here, but your wording was bad.

"Taking comfort" in someone losing a child over it this hosed up, dude. I realize you aren't getting schadenfreude from the pain of a trans/nb child, but the suffering of a bigot, but... Uh... It's not good, dude. Innocents are still suffering.

I say this bc I am that dude in that situation. I'm going to leave it at I used to beg for help in my sleep or wake up screaming. I am going to spare you the details, as I am not interested in losing my account for detailing the tender loving care Christans take of people like me. And I would, were I to detail the brutality of it all. Thank me for my restraint.

So no, I do not take comfort in the idea of them having children on any part of the lgbt spectrum. My hope is that they have cis kids that grow up, get out, learn some empathy, turning away from bigotry. Perhaps the parents are embarrassed of their hatefulness and grow into actual humans instead of troglodytes.


This is a pipe-dream, but it is mine.


Sorry for the meltdown, this is something that wrecked, oh, say... A good 23-25 years of my life? So I'm a little touchy.
It keeps coming up lately, perhaps because I am facing it.

Things are better now.

weddings are automatically a waste of time and if you have anything more elaborate than signing some paperwork in city hall and then getting drunk with your betrothed than you deserve mockery

I used to think the same thing but then my wedding (ceremony, lunch, party) turned out to pretty cool and most people had a lot of fun (I don't dare to say everybody because maybe somebody haven't). It's been over a year and my friends and family still talk about some of the things that happened there.

You don't deserve mockery for your morose opinion, though, but compassion.

No thatís what theyíre saying. The fun part is the reception, spend money there because people actually like those parts.

Spending money on the wedding part when everybody just had to sit down and watch you be a special prince/princess/princex is super boring and nobody likes that part

If you have a family church the ceremony costs pennies compared to the reception. Ours even had a car collector drive us to the reception in a 1920s dodge.
We opted for free wine and beer because the true open bar was staggeringly expensive and rife for potential issues.

Entirely too much of it is just oneupmanship. Oh, this person spent $40,000 on their wedding? I have to spend $50,000. Then somebody else has to spend $60,000. And up and up and up. There's an entire industry build around just convincing people to spend as much as possible on such things. Then when it turned out people were doing things like buying second hand dresses marketing came up with the idea of destroying the dress.

Wedding dresses should be like christening gowns and the entire family should just share the same one over the centuries.

As Americans get fatter, this poses a problem.


However, fwiw, weddings are fun, but, as usual, people ruin it with the one-upsmanship. Super fancy weddings with precise, strict dress codes are bollocks, and pretty much saying to your family and friends that if they can't adhere, then they're unwanted on your momentous day.

Just throw the best party you can for everyone you love, and don't invite anyone you don't even if you're related.

Talk shit, get bzzzt.



Actually all weddings are females displaying their ability to get a male mate with good resources and the capacity to demand control over others. The wedding cake is an example of how women will instantly get fat after marriage, in order to produce offspring with as many male spermjack victims as possible to "cuckhold" the so-called Beta Male. Alpha males, or Chads, named after their largest place of concentration, will often impress the females with their innately supiror capacity to do calculus, design and write about videogames, and tell me when to go to bed Mother.

(Remember when was a new emoji? Whenever when these white dudes were the worst people using the internet en masse. Good times.)

Good news, that trend has been stable for a while in the US and Canada.

But height increases generation over generation are still going, so passing down dresses is unlikely (I have my mumís and my grandmaís and mine in the basement nonetheless, like an idiot).

How about the people who enjoy weddings have them, the people who donít donít, and guests come or not depending if they feel like it?

One million years from now, humanity has not significantly improved in any way, gone through fourteen nuclear apocalypses, living on a planet that somehow is a square now. Everyone is at least 14 feet tall, no other changes. Bones snap by middle age, our weight to strength ratio means humans can barely move unassisted, and a pornographic recreation of Cats is the greatest creation in all history.
