This argument will pretty much break, with a few exceptions, along the child-free and parental unit lines. Parents think their children are perfect and should be allowed to behave any way they choose. We already know that all children of TMFers are perfectly behaved and highly intelligent. Parents have proved repeatedly that they are capable of tuning out tantrums, so it's no surprise other parents can ignore shrieks. I can't and shouldn't have to.

When I pay large sums of money to go somewhere, I shouldn't be subjected to hours of screaming. It's like the smoking debate: Your right to smoke ends at my nostrils. Your right to let your brat scream ends at my ears.
