The view that you're better off not being born is inspired by negative emotions which honour the materialistic philosophy of nihilism. Antinatalism cannot be deemed a rational view because reason is - or, should be - devoid of allegiance to the emotions. Indeed, the view betrays itself because of its association with nihilism, since if life is meaningless then so too are one's negative emotions which may honour that view.

Antinatalism makes no sense. A reaction consistent with the adoption of nihilism as a philosophy should be to rid oneself of one's emotions, certainly the negative ones [first].
