Other countries seem to manage perfectly well without them so they are hardly essential. They are even illegal in some places, I'm sure I read somewhere they are illegal in China :o it says something...

I don't think it's a case of parents demanding money, though some may do so, but more that if you are an adult and you work then it should be natural to want to contribute to the household you are...

It's nothing to do with how much money you have or if you live in a rented house. It's an attitude.

You can have plenty money and live in a mansion and still be chavvy. (or charvers as they are...

You can teach adults with no qualifications at all (depending on the subject I would imagine) but primary and secondary (up to 18 years) I doubt you would get a job without a degree.

You don't need...

This is exactly how I feel too.

I'm not keen on children at all. My own are ok but I can't bear other people's offspring. Much prefer animals.

But I will still save a child before an animal.

As well as saying you want a dog you have to also think what you can offer a dog. It's a 2 way thing.

I'm not saying you are creepy. I have no idea what you are like.

I'm saying calling women 'females' is creepy.
