Last week, @JenKatWrites shared a Facebook rant she came across by a "pissed off" mom complaining about people going to Disney World without children.
“People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!!!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINE!!!” she wrote.
The tweet went viral and, shortly after, the New York Post wrote an op-ed that said "childless millennials going to Disney World is weird," which just fueled the fire even more.
Why should only people with children be allowed to go to the happiest place on earth? Do I not deserve happiness???
Unsurprisingly, people had a lot of opinions...
...even suggesting that people with kids shouldn't go to Disney, instead of the other way around.
Or perhaps there should be a minimum age requirement.
And what if you don't want children or can't have them? Is that any reason to be punished??
Many others pointed out that not everyone grew up in a family that could even afford* Disney World.
I mean, points were made!!
Not only that, but banning childless people (or people who simply choose to leave their kids at home, lol) doesn't fit the spirit of Disney. It's supposed to be a place to go where you can feel like a kid again!
If anything, we should all be going to Disney while we still can!
Now, is it a very wonderful thing for parents to share the magic of Disney with their children and make memories? Yes! It was something I cherished growing up. But also, as a 26-year-old childless woman, does that mean I shouldn't be allowed to go back and create new memories? No!
I don't know why this is a hot-button issue, but it is, so sound off in the comments! In the meantime, I'll be planning my next trip to Disney.
