    A lot of people have told me I'd be a good

    I Hate Kids

    I love kids. I really do.

    But I'm not going to bring any more human beings into this ****** up world. If I want kids, I'll adopt, and hopefully make some kid's life better. But I'm not going to give birth and drag some poor child into this awful place we call Earth.
