Re: The problem with this thread.
"The problem with this thread is that the commenters do not identify themselves as having or not having children (with whom they live - absent parents' opinions are not as important as the opinions of parents who actually take care of the kids.)"
Firstly, it's irrelevant as it's impacting *everyone* so all opinions matter. Secondly, the relationship status of the parents generally has fuck all relevance to how much they "take care of the kids" as you so charmingly put it.
To put it simply for you, this type of law or proposal is the equivalent of, say, ardent cartoon haters insisting that ISPs block any cartoons by default because they don't want to see it, and forcing anyone who likes cartoons to be forced to "opt in" to see it.
It's for the <insert group here> to have an opt-out if they really want it, not to have everyone else to take action on their behalf.
