    Due to all of my mental problems,

    I think it's best I don't procreate. I have a gut instinct that my daughters or sons would end up miserable and crazy like me. Sometimes when you're messed up in the head, it's nice to do the world a favor and don't breed. :)

    I'm 25 and it seems all I'm good

    for is popping out a Minnie me. I am so tired of being assumed a sterile or mental case for my lack of a biological leech. "I have no interest in reproducing." Should be sufficient for my family and it sure as hell in no business of a stranger. My uterus is none of your business...

    No Thank You

    Its not that I dont like children, its just that I dont like them around me. I dont want any at all. It may sound horrible but I would rather have a rash then deal with the constant BS that comes with the responsibility of having kids. Its not that I wouldnt be a fit parent, I...

    I'm sure I'll get accused of being selfish

    and be told that I'll change my mind, both of which might be true, but it is a personal choice and that is my choice. I think I have the caring, compassionate mentality that is needed to raise children, but I don't have the desire to sacrifice my own life for several years...

    Everybody should have a medical dna test

    before bringing kids into this world. I don't want to spread more genetic disease into the world just because I wanted to reproduce and then have children suffering unnecessarily. My parents are the typical hispanic parents that never wanted me to date until I'm 23 but suddenly...

    Why?

    I don't like children, I don't understand them. And I refuse to bring a tiny person who is completely dependent on me, into this world when I know that I would not be a good parent. I have no maternal instincts and to be honest unless I meet "the one" (*cough* bullshit) and...

    I do not want children.

     I don't see how that's so hard to accept for some people. No, I'm not selfish, nor do I not want the responsibility. Having children is a choice after all and I've chosen the not so popular choice. I have no maternal instinct and I feel that a child will not complete ...

    I do not understand the desire to have a child.

    I refuse to give up my freedom and ruin my boobs in the name of Motherhood. Further, after having worked in the Family Court System I have no idea why a straight man would want to subject himself to the emotional and financial risks of Fatherhood.

    Why?

    I just don't see the point. Of course, I'm quite the pessimist compared to most people, actually, I'm a misanthropist. My view of humanity and the "average" human life (if there actually is one) is pretty dark and depressing indeed. The thought of creating a "family" out of...

    Earth Vs. Humans

    It's not so much that I simply don't want children. For me it's a question of looking outside just myself. I can accept the responsibility of children, but I would feel guilty adding yet another child to a world that's already quite overpopulated. I don't have any health...

    It's Not That I Hate Children...

    I hate that whenever I say

    that I don't ever want kids, people reply, "well you'll change your mind." No, no I won't. I'm not nearly caring or sympathetic enough to ever have kids. So no, I will not change my mind.

    I'm in my late twenties

    and people always tell me I'll change my mind eventually. The mothering instinct will kick in later. I am polite to a fault so I nod and smile. I know life happens and the future is uncertain. But honestly I know me. I want to be the old kook around the corner who's still...

    Don't Think I'd Be Good At It...

    Now, I really enjoy children. I do. I think that they're absolutely hysterical, and adorable, and everything else. I was watching a thing with Sarah Silverman, and she said that when one gets a dog bread, the owner is seen as selfish, and people ask why the dog was not received...
