Sterilise irresponsible people before they have children

Comments (215) He's not known for his sensitive approach on delicate issues.

But even Ricky Gervais may have overstepped the mark this time, with his irreverent comments on the subject of over-population.

The comedian - who does not have children - said ‘irresponsible’ parents should be sterilised.

Gervais, 48, said there were ‘too many unwanted children, too many people who are poor and struggling’.

He added: ‘If they all had a good quality of life, no one would complain. What there is, is too many useless people. Too many people who shouldn’t have children.’

Asked whether there should be a limitation then, he told the Sunday Times: ‘Yes, based on… stupid, fat faces. If there’s a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag in her mouth, sterilise her.’


It was suggested that Gervais, who grew up on a council estate in Reading, was calling for ‘chavs’ to be sterilised.

But he insisted his views were not based purely on class.

‘I described an irresponsible parent. Chavs could be included in irresponsible though.’

Gervais' comments cannot possibly be taken seriously by anybody

HOWEVER

He should at least be given credit for raising an issue that is a worldwide TABOO

We cannot raise overpopulation in any official forum

It is not a legal topic :oooeerr:

Politicians don't talk about it because there is nothing they can or will do about it

So people like Gervais are actually going outside of an Emporer's New Clothes type situation

we are doomed to destroy ourselves through this unsolvable threat :(

i ahve read that over population as a cause of global warming is a fallacy, but it certainly is problem in cities, but not globally

by gervais' standards, his parents should have been sterilised. look at him the fat #§$%
