Not really. I'm arguing that civilization is unnatural, and this profoundly damages our natural instinctive responses to many situations.
Blaming "the gays" or "the feminists" is a form of scapegoating. People who have been damaged by society are not "the problem." The society that damages is the problem, and that is virtually all societies. The more artificial, the worse the damage.
I don't want to be funny but fertility is dying because people are not having babies
This is a definition, and not an explanation.
and that is a willful & conscious choice they make, unless you want to tell me that modern society has stolen your agency.
That's the whole idea of society and of technology: to short-circuit the agency of billions of humans so that they can be herded towards something "rich and exiting" for a handful of narcissists.
And it is not just about not having babies it is also about the stance of people in life which is to convince other people not to have babies either, directly and indirectly.
All we are trained to care about is income maximumizing. Children are used mainly to build a retirement fund and to gain social respectability. The human part of human existence has been removed by the bosses, and the zoo that man-in-society is forced to live in is both indignant and unnatural.
