Women: Go to College and Die Childless and Unloved

That seems to be one of the messages coming out of the latest US census report. Apparently women who go to college and postpone childbearing are considerably less likely to ever have children.
Fertility researcher Karen Guzzo, an assistant professor of sociology at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, says many women "are probably not choosing never to have children, so much as … they're not forming relationships because they're investing in their education and careers."

Here are other fascinating findings from the census report:
Women with less than a high school education had three times as many births as women with at least a bachelor's degree. Eighty-three percent of women 25 to 34 with less than a high school education had given birth at twice the percentage recorded by women with at least a bachelor's degree (42 percent).

...-- By age 40 to 44, white non-Hispanic women (20.6 percent) were more likely to be childless than Hispanic women (12.4 percent), black women (17.2 percent) and Asian women (15.9 percent). Black women were also more likely to be childless than Hispanic women. Asian women did not differ from black or Hispanic women. _ChicagoTribune
Women who narrow their focus to just their careers often unwittingly fritter away any chance for motherhood they may have had.
I know...that not being a mother means there is a part of me which remains unused, a love that will be forever unexpressed. I know that what any mother describes as the most profound love she has ever known is, to me, a locked door — there is so much love I will never be able to give, wisdom and understanding I cannot share, shelter and solace I cannot provide.

...My regrets will always linger. My life is a poorer place for not having children, and I am less of a woman for not being a mother. There is a vast realm of experience and growth I will never know. _DailyMail
Women who have blindly shut themselves off from motherhood in their fertile youth often try to project an attitude of indifference and lack of regret to the outside world. But inside herself, she must face the truth of the things she will never know, and the love she will never share.

On the larger scale, for the western world this means that too many her most intelligent women will never have children. Less intelligent and uneducated women will take their place in the birthing wards, and less intelligent children will fill the classrooms, playgrounds, and public spaces of the future.

The US has its poor and uneducated Mexican immigrants, Europe has its poor and uneducated immigrants from MENA, SS Africa, and Asia. The demographic displacement plays out sans fanfare or announcement, to general public indifference.

But the longterm fallout will be severe, as the average population IQ sinks below the level necessary for a complex society to sustain its infrastructure.

While I was in college I was always concerned that I would career away my fertility. That did not happen for me, I would also like to mention I never took the pill I was using much lower dose nuva ring and was able to get pregnant within the first month of not taking it. AL do not despair you recently wrote an article that gave me hope. It was an article about egg auctions, a place where beautiful women can sell their eggs, I hope the auction will open up new categories for women with high IQ, or women that are a combination of both. If infertile couples are able to choose smart eggs and sperm perhaps women aging themselves out of childbearing won't be such an issue.

And by the same time while some career woman decides to have a child on her 44th birthday from her frozen egg, a ghetto woman same age will have 20 grandchildren, and till she's 60, ghetto woman's genes will probably outnumber 100:1 a granny-mother with high IQ.
There is no hope, no artificial method will give positive selection.
There are two factors that are mostly contributing to such disaster:
1. welfare state
2. feminism indoctrination of white women

I don't see this going away, although it's a complex system and not predictable, I know where I'd put my money.

ee-ga: Yes. It is important to maintain as many promising evolutionary lines of development as possible.

Ed: Your points are well taken. But there is a difference between being outnumbered and being obliterated.

Many relatively wealthy nations are sustained by the intellectual capacity of market dominant minorities. It is not an entirely stable situation, but as long as members of such minorities maintain some form of escape route or fallback if things go to hades, it seems to work for many.

All the same, the best way to promote the propagation of the best of the species is to provide endless opportunity for them to thrive.

Most western governments are taking the opposite approach -- pandering to non-productive persons as a way of getting votes and gaining power.
