cryinoutloud: Eegah: That about sums it up for me (although I found a great gal).I've heard the "selfish" accusation before. I've never understood how it's selfish to not bring more children into an already overpopulated world.It's selfish if your reason for not having kids is so that you can have more money. Unless you're dirt poor, that is a selfish reason.But if you'd rather have money than anything else, just as well you don't have any kids anyway. Try to keep it that way.
BolshyGreatYarblocks: Oh, and for the 'Children of Men' ain't gonna happen' crowd, I'll just leave this:
sabbacca: This thread should just be titled " justify to yourself and others why your life is so great, also talk about your dog/cat"
drjekel_mrhyde: I have one kid and do not plan on having more./What do I get?
pla: Imagine a ferret that understands the destructive power of fire and power tools.
sabbacca: I have a son, and a cupcake. Thanks though. Im mostly referring to peoples inability to just accept other peoples decisions without having to critique and make judgements. But I do love me some good e-drama. Please continue.
sabbacca: I have a son, and a cupcake.
mjg: Sex is not for procreation.
imfallen_angel: I've never missed not being a drug user, but I sure know what it does.
publikenemy: I really hate threads like this. If you have no kids you assume that is best. Yet if you do have children, you assume that is best. To each his own. What I hate however is when people have snarky comments and tell those with children how annoying they are and how much better off they are for not having them.Children are fking great thanks for asking. They are a pain sometimes, as is any living creature you have to take care of. The payoff however, is simply awesome.
MBooda: What Is It Like To Be an Adult and Not Have Kids?Nice, except for the annoying compulsion to tell everybody What Is It Like To Be an Adult and Not Have Kids.
SuperDarly: Really, I'm the first?Louis CK on single people.
BlousyBrown: There are a lot of people who should not have children, and I'm one of those people. I recognize that.I've been so lucky to find a great guy who doesn't want them either. I don't think it's selfish to not havechildren, for me it's just the responsible choice.

I don't think it's selfish to not havechildren, for me it's just the responsible choice.As a parent, I not only agree, but would say that having children is the selfish act. Passing on one's DNA is one of the most primitive, self-serving acts that one can partake in. Anyone who tries to suggest otherwise is kidding themselves.
Godscrack: imfallen_angel: I've never missed not being a drug user, but I sure know what it does.What princess? what does it do?Or should I say, what have you read? or seen?idiot.
Thorazine: It is funny reading the snotty little comments from both sides justifying their decision.
pla: MBooda : Nice, except for the annoying compulsion to tell everybody What Is It Like To Be an Adult and Not Have Kids.Ahahahaahah... Good one, MBooda!For every thread like this where we DINKs get to rant, we get to endure a hundred of you breeders
branchtroy: All my childhood I pictured myself with kids. Got married to have kids (not for love) Had two sons. We divorced when they were 5 and 7 years old. I remarried and got divorced again.... Primarily because of who my two sons got along my new wife (their step-mom) I am now single, lonely and broken. I haven't seen my boys in over a year. Their mother has done her best to trash me to them... I barely can function. The grief over how much I have farked up my life is soul crushing...[encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 240x177]it had nothing to do with the alcoholism....nothing at all...On the bright side....there is no bright side.
