Let's be honest, sometimes it sucks eating near kids. Some say kids have a right to public spaces just like adults do, and not everyone can afford a sitter. #ChildFreePlease?

Kids are people too, yo. Some say banning kids from certain spaces is discriminatory.  Weren't we all crying babies at one time?
