How much IS the government willing, to PAY us, to marry, and to, PROCREATE again? And, is the government also going to, pay for those YEARS of elementary, middle, and high school, even into the college years of education of our young? HECK no, ‘cuz, if it does, then, the government will, go BROKE! So nope, this still, won’t work, not in my belief, translated…
Remember how the mayor of Taipei, Ke tossed out the belief of “handing the bonuses to couples getting married?”, he believed, that increasing the rates of marriage, can up the birthrate, and what the mayor went by was of how back in 1998 “Women who had spouses” had the birthrate of only 7.28-percent, and started in 2011, the percentage never fell below ten-percent, and there’s, that steady growth. The problem is, fifty years ago, the rate of marriage of those of age is eighty-eight percent, and now, it’d, dropped to sixty-five, and so, the Taipei city government deduced, that the cause of decline in birthrate, is because people aren’t married, not that they’re not having children.
Although, this column is gender-specific, but let’s put that aside, and just discuss the statistics of things. “Getting married,” is related to “giving birth”. But, without the evidences, there’s no way of confirming, or denying that marriage IS related or correlated with having children. So, why does everybody get married? For the sake of having kids, or, are they pregnant, and then, married because the woman is, knocked up.
If the truth is the former, then, the city government guessed it correctly, that the bonuses given, may well increase the birhtrates; and yet, if the truth is the latter, the incentives are, useless, because it’s, given to those who already had children, those who wanted children in the first place. In other words, whether or not the Taipei city government is testing the taxpayers money to test if it’d guessed correctly, but, do the citizens of Taipei, want to, pay for this, “testing fee”?
From the angle of gender, being a daughter-in-law, is way harder, than being, a son-in-law, in the Asian cultures, there’s, this lack of consideration of the gender equality is the writing of legislations of this sort. To boost the birthrate, giving the bonuses for marriage, it’s more harmful, than helpful, using money, to entice women, to reproduce, and we’re the ones, forced, to shoulder the pressures of marriage, along with the uneven split of household tasks and raising of our young. So basically, we are, NOHTING but baby machines and the government’s handing off the incentives for people here to register themselves for marriage, and for giving births, is a huge, SCAM!
It don’t matter how strong the correlation marriage is to childbirth, they are, different matters, and, there’s, no exact right orders for it, and, if the bonuses of getting married is being, handed out, there may be the unexpected results, for instance, people registered for marriage, but, they’re still, NOT having children; or, they may consider, that getting married many times, gets them more bonuses, so they, divorce, remarry, divorce, remarry, many times.
The forefront is, the marriage bonus need to be, a lot, to the point of it having an economic result, to have, the desired effect that the government wanted to get. Do remember, that marriage AND having children, ARE unrelated matters, you may get married, but not want any children, or you may not get married, but are, having children, those who are married, may have the possibilities of getting divorced, the kids of one marriage, can marry to the kids of, your second spouses’ first marriages, the most important thing being: there’s NO directives to we all need to get married, and having children in our lives.
And so, this, is on the STUPIDITY of the government’s god damn, FUCKING retarded belief, of how, wow, we can, increase the birthrates, by offering the citizens the incentives on them having kiddies, the problem for that is: we women are the ones, popping them, TEN-POUNDERS (‘cuz that’s, what it’s like, PUSHING those fully developed FETUSES out of our, you-know-where, unless you MOTHER FUCKERS would like to pop those ten-pounders out on your own then, we all can just, sit, with our fans, sipping on WINE leisurely, while you mother FUCKERS: push, push, push hon, we’re (what do you mean WE, when I’m the one going through the HARD labor!) are almost there!
Yeah, and that, is from a woman’s perspectives of childbirth, and the STUPIDITY of this idea of giving the incentives to crank up the birthrate in this country here.
