They can try to deny it, they can try to argue it, but there's no doubt about it: people with kids not only receive special consideration for having reproduced...they believe it is DESERVED.
My husband and I have experienced at least two instances of this, both times in restaurants. In the first instance, we were trying to enjoy a nice conversation over a calm, relaxing dinner out. (We've been married five years, are blissfully happy, and don't plan to stress our wonderful relationship with children - ever!) Unfortunately, throughout the entire meal we attempted to have in peace, some toddler smack in the middle of the restaurant kept uttering ear-splitting shrieks every two or three minutes. We complained to the waiter, who said he'd speak to the manager. Ha! Nothing happened, of course. We managed to make it through the meal, but upon leaving, my husband couldn't help himself. He stopped at the table where the kid and her parents were and said, "Thank you for thinking that the rest of us want to hear your child scream." The mother glared at him and snarled, "She's just a child!" Which obviously means the kid could do whatever the hell she wanted AND since she'd spawned her, the mom could also do whatever the hell she wanted too. The sense of entitlement that this woman had was stunning, just because she'd popped out a kid.
Second instance? Again, we're trying to have a nice conversation over dinner, when two children at the next table started yelling at each other, yelling at their parents, running up and down between the tables, and generally acting like brats. When my husband and I couldn't hear ourselves talk anymore, we asked to move to the other side of the restaurant and also asked to see the manager. When he came over, we politely expressed our disappointment that no one saw fit to ask the parents to quiet their children, even for the sake of the other patrons. The manager started to make some sort of excuse about how he couldn't just do that. Then my husband made the astute comparison to having a drunken adult in the place, talking loudly, bothering others, etc. "You can't tell me that you wouldn't ask the adult to stop disturbing other people," my husband said. The manager stammered a bit and said, "Well, that's not really the same thing..." WHY?! WHY IS THAT NOT EXACTLY THE SAME THING???!! BECAUSE THEY WERE CHILDREN, THAT'S WHY! The guy would rather have any number of paying customers be disturbed than just ask the freaking parents to BE PARENTS and make their kids behave.
Child worship has gone too far. In my opinion, kids deserve less respect, fewer privileges, and less consideration than adults. It's really not their fault that they're annoying, loud, selfish creatures. But it's not my fault either. Child-free forever!
