no babies

Shanna Swan is interviewed by The Guardian about the declining birthrate. She is an NYC professor in medicine. Shanna points to chemicals causing people to be reduced in fertility, libido or both. Japan also has an alarming decrease in the Nation’s birthrate, and some local governments have blamed it on their citizen’s lack of interest in sex. Dear kind readers: Please, I’m begging; I’ll do anything, por favor imagine you’re a small-town Japanese public official, and your government is alarmed by its low birthrate. It is evident people are not getting married at rates they once married, and it is also evident babies born to women not married has also decreased. Your government is enacting policies to get people fucking and making babies. Sincerely, Tom Doody. No surprise the small-town Japan governments have not moved the young people sex gauge from no sex to sex. It’s hard to imagine myself in a generation of young no-sex Japanese, and facing my local government pressure to reproduce. I might have passed through puberty, and no-sex years slipped away, and now my mayor wants me to have sex with a female community member. I may have a decade behind me of dealing with zero sex partners, and suddenly the mayor wants me to find a partner and reproduce. This seems preposterous, and doomed to fail. In the US the declining birthrate is alarming, but trailing Japan, and the US blames lifestyle changes. People postpone reproduction, and then want babies as their fertility is naturally declining with age. Professor Swan blames chemicals, Japan blames their no-sex citizens, and the US blames lifestyle changes. The only thing I’m sure of is a continued birthrate decline is certain.
