    I agree with the latter, but you can make the same argument for the contrary on your first point.

    Slobbering or not, I still don't want kids. I shouldn't have to put my body through that if I don't want to. I shouldn't have to have kids interfere with my career if I don't want to. I think that I'll be much more useful to society as a teacher than as a mother, and not both. I just don't see them in my life.

    im just saying that people focus on the easiest excuses. i wouldnt know what to say if someone actually told me, in an intelligent manner, that they dont want children because kids are expensive and they'd rather spend the money travelling or to focus on their career because being a doctor/gourmet chef/astronaut/ect is their dream

    just something other than "i dont want to get poop on my hand"

    EDIT: I typed this before i saw carabeu's post

    So people who don't want kids are either a) scared, b) lazy or c) losers. One could just as easily call out parental types for either a) just going along with what everyone else does, or b) having nothing else to leave behind in life except genetics, or c) secretly wanting to go back to their long-gone single lives of freedom and being too angry to admit it. Just saying, generalizations work both ways.

    (This is coming from someone who's 90% certain he wants kids... some day.)

    I would say thats accurate, yes.

    this aint the 50s bro. lots of couples arent having kids, and ones that do are having them later in life (not saying this is a bad thing). more couples are not getting married. this seems to be a current trend far more than having kids.

    this seems like something from a movie. continuing the line, and all. once youre gone, youre gone, so who cares about your reputation.

    i touched on this earlier. i think about those bygone days every once in a while, but to what end? how about being productive and improving upon your current situation? single life is overrated.

    Does it really matter what their "excuse" is? This is a decision people make that doesn't really harm any other person.

    Exactly.

    not at all. its regretful that people who actually dont want kids are guilt tripped into having them by family, friends.

    once again, im not saying that everyone should have kids. i was merely saying that their reasons are usually ridiculous sounding to parents

    reading comprehension, people.

    Our points were that you having kids sounds ridiculous to us. Reading comprehension, bro.

    By refuting my point, you missed my point. Dumb generalizations can easily be met with dumb generalizations.

    This thread is killing it
    J. is cracking me up
    Ftr, I read his first post and knew exactly what he was talking about. He wasn't pointing at anyone here in particular either. When you're a parent and you get to know people your age who are NOT parents, eventually you have the conversation about kids and the sentiments he touched upon as the reasons the non-parents typically give for their situation are honestly pretty accurate.

    And if they DO come up with something altruistic like "oh kids will keep me from stopping AIDS in Africa" it's complete bullshit. What they mean is "oh, I like getting up at 10 am every day even though I'm 40 years old and don't want some child to interfere with that"

    I know this because I can read minds

    Yes. This. I just read this. The important point he's making is the *to parents* part

    Nothing wrong with not wanting to have kids, though.

    I hope everyone sees that as a given

    Most teenagers will certainly grow up with some emotional baggage. A youngin' without a papa though, may end up with a pickle under his schnoz. A Fate worse than death. :erk:


    Good luck on the date mang, wish ye the best.

    Yeah, I get that part. Dumb excuses and all. But one can still sense the bitterness that oozes from his* every post. Then again, that's always been the case! :lol:

    *along with, coincidentally, the downtrodden posts from just about everyone with wives/children. Except for dorian, who has reached new plateaus of not giving a fuck that the rest of us will likely never attain.
