You pumpin’ out kids Jeff, or just crybabying about it?
If you really believe in your cause, be an activist like these ppl.
I’m boringly white. Mayflower, Plymouth rock, revolutionary war, blah blah and all that. As northern white american as northern white american gets. I also haven’t procreated and feel no need to. So, blame me. I’m destroying the planet! Oh noooooo! Oh wait… I don’t care about levels of tone in skin. Really, truly, don’t care. There’s plenty of people on the planet and people are living longer lives.
Oh, some mythologically fundamental difference about genetic betterness due to activities of people from long ago?

What you want is a religion That’s what preserves those things.
I’m just saying, that if you want a conduit for values/culture/civilization, it’s religions that preserve those things. Amish, Mennonites, Russian Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican, Judaism… take your pick. They’re all conduits for particular morality, particular culture, particular civilization.
First off, human sexuality is a spectrum – been known scientifically since the late 1940s and Kinsey did his large study.

Society didn’t respect me a a kid, why would it respect me now, or when I’m 88? Society’s just something that’s in the background, bullshit mazes to travel through to accomplish whatever it is you want, either going outside of the mazes or through them, under or over them.
If you want a perfect society, create one online. Make a community, create it in a game, whatever. You won’t find your salvation society in real life. People got their own shit to worry about. You just have to work with the agreeable, combat or ignore the disagreeable and try not to get yourself killed in the process, unless that’s your thing.
Of course there’s intentional communities. That’s one way you can see your vision irl. Or you can work the political process, start a grassroots movement or join one or whatever. Never know.
