Why is it so wrong to not want children?! Just because I'm female and don't want kids doesn't make me a monster! I don't hate children, but I don't necessarily like them either. I don't find babies cute, I don't turn to a pile of mush over toddlers, I don't coo over baby clothes, I don't care that your little angel has just spoken his first words. And children are incredibly unhygienic and disorganized. Why can't I just choose to be child-free and not be harassed for it? My parents are pressuring me for grandchildren and insisting that I'll "change my mind." I won't. My tolerance for children runs out after a few hours... call me crazy, but I don't think that rearing a kid for 18 years would be a good idea for me. I would be unhappy, which in turn would make said child unhappy. No one would win. A child doesn't deserve a bitter and jaded parent. For me children are almost like puppies: they're alright, but you're relieved when they go home with someone else at the end of the day. I just wish everyone would respect my choice and not judge me for it, just as I respect the choice of those who do choose to procreate.
