Frantic Freddie: We're in our 50s & never had children by choice. I have nothing against kids,but dammit, when we have our annual party & I ask you not to bring anyone under 21, that means your 5 year old too. There's gonna be drunken adults, expensive musical equipment, there's nothing for kids to do here,my house is not child-proof & everything is either sharp or loaded.Find a babysitter or stay home, I've told people to leave after they said "But I didn't think that applied to my 2,4 & 6 year olds!" Yes it does,see where it says NO ONE UNDER 21 on the invite,in block letters.really,I lock up the guns during the party
Surpheon: WhippingBoy: you're painting with an awfully broad brush.An equally broad brush is the absolute statement:heili skrimsli: "Childfree people are NOT looking wistfully at those with kids and lamenting what we don't have. We are not 'sad' about this."Unless you play dumbass language games like anyone who has a moment of regret is no longer "childfree" but now defined as "childless".Absolutes are always wrong.
heili skrimsli: given that the message you're spouting (most women who choose not to have children regret it/wish they had).
Girion47: This is a study of people who wanted and failed to have children, not those of us that are blissfully saving lots of money to spend on ourselves.
