Said everyone who has no kids. And everyone until they have kids. Unless they have kids with no interest in being a parent. In which case it'd probably make no difference.

i can just as easily and probably more accurately argue that people who think that their being a parent gives them a unique perspective are simply people who are more self-absorbed and focused on self interests, have less empathy overall, are more apt to be tribalistic in regards to everything from religion, politics, culture, nationalism, etc., and overall less objective.

if you believe that, then you just described every parent I've ever met. I don't believe there's a parent alive who's preconceived notion of what parenthood was gonna be like wasn't pretty much destroyed in the first year. Maybe you're exceptionally astute, or gifted with some rare insight and you'll prove to be the exception. Let me know after you have a couple.
