    Doing The World A Favor

       I have never liked kids, most of my family thinks I love kids. I would be really embarrassed if they found out some how that I don't. I don't wanna be judged just because I'm not like most women in the world who want kids right off the bat. Half the reason why I stayed a...

    You know what really bothers me?

    When people ask me why I don't want kids and I tell them it's because I don't like them, they come back with "you were a kid once." Seriously, what's your point? Just because I was a kid once doesn't mean I have to like kids. That's stupid. I can't handle them. They're too...

    Honestly, I hate children.

    Especially babies, idk, they're too much responsibility for me. Crying is annoying, and they're too ******* needy. They're like little gremlins who steal your youth and money. I'd much rather just have a dog. At least dogs don't argue.

    Reply 1) If your intentions are to guilt trip

    people for not wanting kids. 2) Tell why 3) And if you would ever force someone to have kids because you're uncomfortable with their decisions. Heart if you respect people's decisions for not wanting kids.
