Mumbai Man Suing Parents For Giving Birth to Him ‘Without Consent’

Life is a bitch. Donald Trump is president, the Patriots won the Super Bowl, Disney is buying all of recreation unchallenged and The Good Place isn’t on again for like a year. Sometimes I wish I’d never been born into this world of human suffering.

Mumbai resident Raphael Samuel agrees, and he’s doing something about it; he’s suing his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. That’s not even the weird part. No, the weird part is that his mother seems to be proud of him. Via New Zealand’s Newshub:

“I must admire my son’s temerity to want to take his parents to court knowing both of us are lawyers,” she wrote on Facebook.

“If Raphael could come up with a rational explanation as to how we could have sought his consent to be born, I will accept my fault.

“I’m very happy that my son has grown up into a fearless, independent thinking young man.”

I kind of love that. It’s such a mom answer to be like “Oh, my little man is suing me, what a fine young man he’s become.

Here’s why Samuel says he’s filing the lawsuit:

“I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure.

“My life has been amazing, but I don’t see why I should put another life through the rigamarole of school and finding a career, especially when they didn’t ask to exist.”

Tell me about it. Who can I sue for making me into a writer?
