You're obviously stuck in the thought that everyone is superficial. You have no idea about anything.
And you don't think of children, you think of experiments. You don't raise children like that. You need to give them a life and a chance to experience things on their own. Not just raised on whatever you think is right.

You make me sick.

You're wrong. You have no idea what anyone else cares about.

What's barring you from being anything more than what you are now, which is a complete fool.

No, they'll be born into the same nonsense you were born into. Conditions of not their choosing and things they will probably hate and things that will hurt and hinder them.

Why you of all people? You think you're something special?

So what does that have to do with how I'll raise children?
