Apparently, some ridiculous person ranted online recently about childless millennials at Disney, saying they should be banned. The rant was brought on by her kid crying because she told him the pretzel line was too long. It seems she blames one woman she calls “a cunt in slutty shorts” for being in line without kids. This “tramp”, according to the crazy woman, was entirely to blame for this situation. This person took to Facebook to rant about people without kids being at the park and wants them banned so she doesn’t have to wait in line. Perhaps Disney should ban asshats who call people cunts, tramps and sluts from Disney. That would go a long way toward making it the happiest place on Earth again.
I went to Disney and Universal with my family in January. The ages of the people in our party at the time of the trip were 49, 48, 22 and 18. I’m sure we were in plenty of lines in front of people with kids. I’m sure we used our Fastpass to pass plenty of people with kids. I saw people there who were younger couples with no kids. They were probably in line in front of people with kids. Guess what? I don’t feel bad about that at all. I might go back to Disney someday without my adult children. My adult children might go to Disney without kids. They might never be parents. They still have every right to be at Disney World. They paid the same money you did to get there. You aren’t special because you have a kid. You just proved in your rant that any asshole can have a kid. Yes, Disney World is a family place, but guess what? There are many definitions of family. Family does not mean the cookie-cutter mom, dad and 2.5 kids with a white picket fence. A childless couple, regardless of age, is a family. They might choose not to have kids. They might not be able to have kids. Whatever the reason, they are still a family and you aren’t better than them because you gave birth. I know it is hard to be at Disney with a cranky kid. I’ve done it multiple times. I’ve never reacted by demanding people be banned from the park. That’s some self-entitled bullshit right there.
But, let’s say we go that direction. I have some places to ban you and your cranky kid.
Kids should be banned from all but fast-food restaurants. My sit down meal should be ruined by you loud kid.
Kids should be banned from airplanes. I can’t sleep when your kid is screaming.
Kids should be banned from all other amusement parks besides Disney. You have your family place. We get the rest.
No more kids in bars. That’s just dumb.
If you agree to all of the above, I will entertain your thoughts on banning people without kids from Disney.
