"Without the natural connections and belonging that literally emerge from marriage and fertility, the latter years become very cold and lonely. Those 'Friendsgivings' will get old, quickly," he wrote.
People didn't hesitate to express how not every person can have kids or is interested in having them.
One person wrote: "Also, most Millenials aren't having children because they want to be hot & party. We aren't having children because we literally can not afford them, nor do we have the time to raise them."
"Then I guess everyone who can't have kids is shit out of luck," another added.
A third wrote: "Hot take: children shouldn't exist just to satiate the boredom and sadness of adults."
Someone else questioned the take and wrote: "Are you assuming every parent and child have this loving, unconditional relationship? Have you ever read a book or watched a movie?"

\u201c@GShaneMorris Sorry you need to have a child so someone is forced to hang out with you, bro. Hope things improve for you \ud83d\ude4f\ud83c\udffb\u201d
\u201c@GShaneMorris Or maybe, they're just fine and have more of a clue what they're doing than we give them credit for in our pedantic worldviews. Maybe they see many ways to love and places where they can live lives of generosity and value as teachers, surrogates, and friends.\u201d
