So I have been trying to force myself into writing this post for about two weeks now. This fickle little idea seems to come up a lot in my daily thoughts.
A statistical analogy of sorts before I begin. Pakistan holds over a ga-jillion (not actual stat but its probably around that) migrants. Now I’m not really against immigration ,honestly that isn’t an issue I would want to get involved in anyways.
Keep them peeps coming if they want to I aint gonna stop em!
Now! The thing I actually do have a problem with is reproduction. The reproduction I’m talking about here is of those previously mentioned immigrants whom haven’t even settled in to their new country yet and as soon as they get here they start popping out babies like its some kind of competition. Well I’m no baby hater either but another fact here is
that ( as discussed) these people are hardly even settled into the country, they don’t have a solid income or even a solid household and yet the first thing they want to solidify is a fertility rate.
Now that that’s over I can finally get to the reason I write this article. You see I am a teenager of the 21st century and as a teenager of this glorious era I want to dine in all of its luxuries, party as hard as I can but also work hard and eventually change the world for better. The problem I face standing between me and all these aspirations are some little pieces of paper all of humanity refers to as cash.
I AM BROKE AND ANGRY ABOUT IT !
In most countries that aren’t Pakistan this little problem among teenagers is usually solved by something known as a part-time job, or “jerb” if you’re hip. This is where our formerly mentioned horny little immigrants come in, you see there are no part time jobs for teenagers because there’s people other than teenagers that need them. I see no problem in this what so ever, obviously supporting a family of 27 with 3 on the way is more important than some teenager.
The problem that seems to persist however is the fact that with that income you are only “getting-by”. In other words, your children will not be getting a quality education (public schools here aren’t as awesome as everywhere else), your children will not be eating healthy and your home will never be anything more than a slum.
What follows is that these (now almost 32 and a half) children of your’s will grow up and when they do, they have no skills to actually get employed or even start their own business if they want to and hence the cycle shall continue. A little cherry on top is that most girls from these families are married off at around 16 (that’s like almost as old as I am O_O ). The guys they marry are also probably either over 45 or under 25 which results in more mass baby production.
In short I’m just sitting here being frowned because I have to go through the guilt of asking my parents for money (which I’m not a big fan of) while someone out there has to get a low skill, low pay part-time job because they didn’t think before they introduced 45 little bundles of joy into this world.
So people, my message as a bummed out teenager is simple. Please keep the repopulating for when we survive the massive zombie apocalypse because at this rate our chances are pretty thin.
PS. Deepest support to all those women who have to go through the pain of labor 50 times. I really wish I could do more for these people rather than just blog about it.
