We’re all familiar with height requirements such as “you must be this tall to ride this ride” plastered on signs at amusement parks, but should there be age limits when it comes to who is allowed to visit those parks? A few months ago, one mom took to Facebook with her conclusion about “childless couples” at Disney World. Now, her curse-filled rant, which ended up on Reddit, is going viral.
The post in question started off with a declaration: “It pisses me off TO NO END!!!!! when I see CHILDLESS COUPLES AT DISNEY WORLD!!!!” She went on to call out “immature millennials” who “throw away their money on useless crap” and details her experience taking her own son to Disney World, where she was unable to buy a pretzel for the child because the line was too long.
The mom declared, “DW is for CHILDREN!!!! People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!!!! Mothers with children should be allowed to skip ALL THE LINE!!!" She went on to say that she hates “childless women with a BURNING PASSION!!!”
Once the post emerged on Twitter and started making the internet rounds, New York Post writer Johnny Oleksinkski penned an opinion piece about millennials clinging to nostalgia titled, “Sorry, childless millennials going to Disney World is weird.” This sparked even more backlash, as theme park fans began to defend their right to spend their free time as they please, childless or not.
