Burrs are all for people, even fathers, being given months of parental leave upon birth or adoption of a child.

But how about giving time off to folks who aren’t ever having kids? It’s not as if there are a shortage of people.

NOT having kids should be as rewarded as well.

To those who would argue that time for paternity leave isn’t a “reward”, I assert that not granting that time off would be akin to “punishment” for having a child as it harms the family.

Those of us without kids have families we’d like to spend more time doing things with, too

When, for example, Mormons (I know several) have kids every 10-12 months like clockwork for 9-10 years, granting them paid and protected time off again and again is tantamount to religious bias towards religions that encourage its members to have as many babies as possible.
