If you would like to believe that some people in Hollywood are sane then don’t look to the cast of Mad Men. The popular cable show has at least one guy who basically thinks having children is irresponsible and hurts the environment. He hopes the rest of us will learn to live as responsibly as him.
Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser did an interview this week with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall to talk about how to go green. The progressive network thought the actor was qualified to interview, because he’s insanely green in his personal life. The guy has no car, thinks meat is evil, and in fact, has no toilet. Kartheiser told a UK magazine earlier this year:
“I don’t have a toilet at the moment. My house is just a wooden box. I mean I am planning to get a toilet at some point. But for now I have to go to the neighbours. I threw it all out.”
If not having a place to relieve yourselves isn’t enough, he told MSNBC that it’s truly green to not have children.
Hall: Did you move forward at that point and look for other ways, if you will, to go green and to live what we should all be doing – living more responsibly?
Kartheiser: I’ve been a vegetarian for four years and I have chosen not to have children, which are both green choices in my life.
Well how noble of you Vince. To you, all of us should live more responsibly by not having those little evil environmental killers – ya know, kids. In fact, Kartheiser eased our minds that he isn’t doing anything “miraculous” that the rest of “the masses” couldn’t do.
