I got a 3.

Dr. Cainad! I have the most awful case of wolf bites and Wobuffet poomp! What can you do for me?
Moar vindaloo to ward off the wolf bites. It's a scientific fact that wolves are big sissy wimps who can't handle spice. To be extra sure, buy my proprietary vindaloo sauce spice blend; now with 25% more tungsten!
As far as Wobuffet poomp goes, use Ultra Balls or some shit. I'll even sell you a 13 year old nerd who's got this Pokemans stuff memorized. Actually, take him for free. Please. He never shuts up.
It has been stewing in the back of my brain for some time now that there is something interesting going on with people who dislike children. I'm not talking about people who are simply uncomfortable with kids, or don't know how to handle them, or who don't want kids of their own. I'm talking about people who express an arbitrary contempt and/or aversion towards all people below the age at which they are able to have articulate adult conversations.
I wonder if it has something to do with self-loathing, with hating their own child selves, rooted in a lack of nurturing, love, and respect shown to them by adult figures in their lives; a sort of self-defensive move. Perhaps their child-selves felt rejected, and to ease their cognitive dissonance and preserve a sense of worth, they unconsciously adapted by forming a belief that it is not that they were rejected because they, individually, were unlovable, but because children are not worth loving. Almost unvaryingly, these same people fail to express liking, compassion, or respect for their own child-selves.
I can't seem to find any research on this, wondering if it's something I should explore at some point.
ZOMG like, literally, right?
