Doing The World A FavorI 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 virgin in high school was to completely avoid getting pregnant. Didn't wanna become a mother at age 16 and ruin my life. And at age 20 I still don't want kids. They're just not for me. I don't want the responsibility of taking care of another life, being pregnant for 9 months and giving up my youth for something I didn't want. And I feel I'm doing the world a favor by avoiding having kids. That's one less mouth to feed. One less animal being slaughtered to feed someone, one less diaper being used. And I won't have to pay for the kid's college. Hell I ain't even in college yet. You should see how young parents and even older parents struggle in this economy. Its miserable and pathetic. Half of me wants to walk up to those people and say, "oh why couldn't you have just used protection, and keep it in your pants."
And I know adoption is expensive but damn, they need loving families. I bet you half the kids who don't get adopted is because a gay/lesbian couple wasn't allowed to adopt them. Cruel world we live in right? Guess my "motherly instincts" haven't kicked in yet. I'm guessing by the time I do want children, I will be too old to have them.
Here's to freedom, no diapers, baby food, college funds, screaming, late sleepless nights. Here's to having the freedom to make your own choices ba
