  11. I got hit with RSV in September, before it was on the public radar–and it absolutely kicked my butt for two solid weeks with its main symptom, a deep wracking cough. There's an excellent animation that explains RSV in detail–search YT under "Respiratory Syncytial Virus and Bronchiolitis causes" and it's the first one. The explanation put it in perspective for me, so I knew what to expect. Jeez, this is some awful stuff!

  13. Antinatalism is the ethical view that negatively values procreation & concludes that procreation is morally wrong under all circumstances. The gist is: harm/suffering prevention, the questionable nature of gambling with another life, and the impossibility of consent to be born.

    In summary:

    1. There's no reason to create a child that’s for the child's sake. For the unborn child, birth doesn't solve any problem that it doesn't first create.

    2. Existence is imposed without consent. No one chooses to be born or chooses the circumstances of their birth.

    3. Everyone experiences at least some suffering, and some people experience disproportionately more suffering than others.

    4. Existence brings guaranteed harm for unneeded benefit—guaranteed harms being: pain, fear, worry, sickness, injury, grief/loss, fatigue, etc.

    5. Bringing someone into existence means exposing them to all the harms of this world. It should go without saying that the presence of harm is bad.

    6. The only way to guarantee that your kids won’t ever suffer is by never bringing them into this world in the first place, making the absence of harm good.

    7. Even though there is good in this life, the unborn aren’t deprived of anything since they don’t exist to miss out on said good, therefore the absence of pleasure is neutral (neither good nor bad).

    8. No one has the moral right to inflict serious, preventable harms upon others without their consent.

    9. Intentional procreation is intentionally harming your loved ones, a questionable deed.

    10. None of the nonexistent wish to be born but plenty of the living wish they had never lived.

    11. It’s morally questionable to place someone in a position from which death is the only escape.
