Can you back up any of these claims?
@Ecologygirl76 Do your own research if you really want to know.
It is the universal claim at GaG. First some ignorant conspiratorial view is voiced. Then you challenge them. . . they can't provide any evidence, so they say do your own research. There is no conclusive research saying children are healthier if the mother is younger. It is all mixed, but the latest studies do not confirm his claims.www.sciencedaily.com/.../160412104810.htmChildren of older mothers are healthier, taller and obtain more education than the children of younger mothers. The reason is that in industrialized countries educational opportunities are increasing, and people are getting healthier by the year. In other words, it pays off to be born later.Most previous research suggests that the older women are when they give birth, the greater the health risks are for their children. Childbearing at older ages is understood to increase the risk of negative pregnancy outcomes such as Down syndrome, as well as increase the risk that the children will develop Alzheimer's disease, hypertension, and diabetes later in life.However, despite the risks associated with delaying childbearing, children may also benefit from mothers delaying childbearing to older ages. These are the findings from a new study conducted by Mikko Myrskylä, the director of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR),) and his colleague Kieron Barclay at the London School of Economics, that has been published today in Population and Development Review.
@barbaric - and how is a person supposed to support these children in their teens & early twenties when they've no real education & no real life experience? Work three minimum wage jobs to try and survive or sit on welfare & suck off working people like a vampire?
@barbaric - do you have a job by any chance? And does it pay more than the minimum wage.
@barbaric - actually as you claim to be from the UK and I am British. Your ideology is typical of council house inhabitants. For Americans/Canadians that means he's 95% likely to be on welfare or low income where the more kids = more money so why bother getting a real job or education.
@AshViper I'm speaking mainly about what we're biologically designed for. Any doctor will tell you the exact same thing. I don't mean that people should have kids in their teens, although that use to be the norm. It's possible to support children, especially young babies which they'll be at that time, without having to work 3 jobs. A lot of people way over-estimate the costs mainly because they're stupid with money and spend needlessly on things they don't really need.
@SomeBlondeChick I do have a job and yes it does.
That is false. A girl under 16 is much more likely to have complications. And there is minimal difference in defects between 20 and 30. Furthermore the difference between individuals, for example in your sperm comment, is much more significant than between the same individual at 20 and 50.
i think this is why young women go for older guys. the guy dies and she can mother the child with what he has earned in his life
Lol someone has a low view of men, how much do you weigh?
Probably less than the amount of times you have been in the county jail.
How does procrastinating and storing your eggs somehow free up a larger pool of eligible men if they're all masturbating anyway? Think ahead, you'll all be competing for a very select group of men while you're in your 40's, and they'll all ignore you for younger women like you've ignored the vast majority of other men your whole life!
women have been complaing about men being too masculine for decades, and now men have softened up, they are complaing they are too unmasculine.
That's because women choose the bad men over the nice guys. This has caused a large proportion of good men to go their own way. Women are always going on about how strong and independent they are, so a lot of men no longer see the need to take responsibility anymore.
Those women believe in abortion so I doubt they believe in God

I let you spam my comment and you don't even have the courtesy to give me a like?What is this world coming to! Its End Times! Repent!
The smile the doctor was giving her when she was asked about pull up to pick up your kids was epic. What a miserable bottle blonde this Katy woman is.
I know we need more women like her
To actually go on tv and point blank tell women to make mistakes with men and having kids is pretty dangerous. As if our society doesn’t do that enough already. Women need to be a lot more choosy, not less.
I just meant ones that can say how they feel and still have a sense of humour
Well looking at her bio information we can see she’s made plenty of mistakes herself.
Hey I’ll give a girl a lot of slack if she can still make me laugh
Katie speaks a lot of truth. She's one of the few women on the planet that has any common sense.
On wha grounds do you think hey advice is good? She actually encourages women to make mistakes and have kids as a result? Like there aren’t already enough unwanted and misbehaved children running around due to parents who weren’t ready.
Nope, you misinterpreted what she said.
What is your interpretation of what she said?
I'm not gonna go into it because your mind is made up.
No it’s alright. Go head. I’m just curious.
Nope, i'm not gonna waste my time. Go away.
Well first of all, no. This was my 2 month old opinion you went out of your way to reply to. So how bout you stop with the excuses and back your shit up like a man. Or go away.
Nope, I don't explain myself to crazy feminists like you.
Then gtfo with your bullshit
There was a time when most people had kids by the time they were 18, so was a whole generation of people not mentally prepared for children?
@chris_987I think at that time, things were simpler and different.Back in the older days, the purpose of women is to look after the family. Most women do not even have a proper education, their only skills were to cook and look after the family. They are to stay at home, marry and then have kids.It's unlike now, where we expect both genders to have a job and work, have meaningful careers.And we are talking about now, right? Not the past?
Education? Most people didn’t have education regardless if they were male or female
@chris_987The more you replied, the more confusing it gets.Do you not agree that historically, women's roles are to look after the family and look after kids after they are married? as compared to now.
Lol who knows, I wasn’t alive back then
The incentive for people to have kids is the same as what it was 70 years ago. that being your kids will take care of you and will be with you when your old and lonely.
@beefy40 To clarify, I'm speaking of social incentive. In 1950 a woman's social worth was largely tied to her ability to be a good wife and mother and working mom's or women who chose career over family were not highly praised or valued in society as you were thought of as some type of rebel who would dare "shirk her duty" to become a mother. Now we have a much more relaxed attitude towards this. Sure there is still pressure on women to hurry up and have kids before they turn 30 or 35, but it's not to the degree it used to be. Instead of encouraging women to only get married and have kids, now we want women to have their own jobs and education before they have kids.
who wants women to have a job and education before they have kids?
@beefy40 a lot of people.
I don't think think late 20s is hugely old for women in terms of trying to conceive. Bear in mind in the West there is very low standards for health and modern medicine unfortunately has taken the responsibility away from the individual to look after their own health. I take your point in general though.
Why would women want to vote when getting married was life or death
Yeah it seems like a lot of things aren’t anyone’s business but women’s. Probably why women are suffering because they’ve avoided the voice of logic and reasoning
I think anyone's personal choice isn't anyone else's business but theirs, regardless of their gender. I had my eldest daughter very young. Her dad wasn't around and people had their options about that, and then when I had my youngest, I was with her dad and I still am, and he's an outcast on my street because of his background. I've had people on my street telling me that I'm ruining my life with him and why I am with him, am I going to stay with him... it's not their fucking life. Our lives, our bodies and what we or do with them aren't up for discussion. That goes for whether you are male or female. There are couples who never have kids and that's ok too.
See the audacity that one would think that there are topics that shouldn’t be discussed is why people like you are afraid of opinions. You should be able to talk about any topic no matter what your race or gender is. Just because you are offended by people’s opinions about your left doesn’t mean you can’t do the opposite of what people say.So you being again free speech is why society will suffer in the long run
It doesn't offend me, but we need to stop with the option that certain people should only live life by our standards and they are wrong if they don't. The only time it would be too late too have a child is if she was no longer physically able to have one. . If someone has a kid at 40-ish, maybe they had a career before that and now they are in a much better position to support a child than they were when they were 25. If you decided to chop your dick off tomorrow, you would do it without anyone else's option if that's what was right for you: An occasional option is fine, judgement is never really warranted.
It’s limited way of looking at life is someone has been through some that I’m planning on doing then the wisdom and counsel is necessary. What you’r advocating for is people making decisions so they can learn from there mistakes. Which is why people like sound so uninformed about a lot of subjects.A women whose frozen her eggs because she decided to listen to society and chase after her career should be allowed to tell young women that you can hope to meet mr right when it’s convenient. You body is not set up to hold off on fertility. So that’s just my opinion which I’m entitled to until everyone start thinking like you.
Someone with hindsight offering advice is different to having a blanket statement as to who should do what when and looking at it in a very ridged way. You aren't a women who froze her eggs.Everyone's circumstances are different. Some people try for years to have babies and it simply doesn't happen for them until later in life. some people don't have the stability, emotionally or financially... everyone's circumstances are different.
So because you haven’t gone through something means you shouldn’t speak about it? So only rapist should speak an rape. And people like me who’ve never done it shouldn’t have an opinion?
I was using your example. My point was that so many people form a judgmental option about an entire group without having facts. You can't compare a choosing when to have a child to being a rapist. Rape is wrong across the board. It is never ok. Choosing a when to be a parent is down to personal circumstance. Your question wasn't "do you think couples/some people are having children to late" it's aimed at why women are at fault, and that isn't your call.
You seem to know a lot about what men shouldn’t talk about, is there something women shouldn’t talk about when it comes to men?
Men should be just as free to make their life choices. Again, it's no one's business. You have your reasons.
But what your not getting is that you are going free to make your own decisions. Why do you view words the same as some physically restraining you from doing something
I just think that it's one thing to have an option... but make sure you take into account all possible factors... You can't form a balanced opinion without facts. That's just ignorance. I just think we should refrain from judging an entire group of strangers ( or even a single stranger) who are all different from one another. There is nothing wrong with someone not living how you want them to live and we need to remember that. I don't know. We are just different. Again, I think that if someone's general life choices aren't harmful, or anything to do with us, we should mind our own business. It's nobody's place to say when someone should or shouldn't have a child.If you want the last word, that is fine. We just see things differently. You asked a question and I commented.
Oh it’s ok every conversation I have with women ends like this, but that type of thinking is why as women become more in charge, your way of not judging anyone becomes the norm. Which I find funny because when I look around I see kids taking hormones blockers too change there sex. I’m reminded that it was people like you who told everyone to stop judging people. Well you can be happy that the majority of society thinks the same way you do.
@AperolSpritz this guy is a complete joke 😂 don’t take him serious at all.
@Aphrodite801 Yes wow! Mindblown by how stupid someone can be.
