Having a child

I am incredibly tired of people telling me to have a baby. A family friend gave birth half a year ago and since then I have been pressured to do the same.

Ignoring the fact that my boyfriend and I aren't even married yet and are not in a good enough situation to raise a child, I don't want one in the first place. I have stated this multiple times during multiple conversations, yet this idea that I should give birth keeps getting shoved down my throat.

Protip - if you pester someone constantly about something, it will make them want to do the opposite. My wish to avoid having a child keeps growing with the amount of people that tell me that 'I would be a great mom, having a child is great!'. Good for you, lovely that you'd love to have one. I wouldn't.

I would not make a good parent. I do not want a child. I will not get pregnant. I do not care, it's my body and my decision. So stop f****** forcing your s***** fantasies onto other people, it's the worst s*** you can do. That's why I turned out the way I did, but this time I'm able to say 'no' and 'f*** off'. So f*** off with this bullshit and if you want kids so bad go and adopt one.

  • As a parent of 3, I fully endorse this message. If you don't want kids don't have them. Everyone else, shut the f*** up.

  • Why have a child anyway?

  • Tell them to shut the f*** up. It's none of their business.

  • I really hope we're seeing the beginning of way more people actually thinking ahead before reproducing. There are hardly any good reasons to have kids these days-- I mean, name ONE that can't be made to begin with "Because I want"-- and a metric shitton of good reasons not to!

    Some people don't want kids because they're emotionally still kids themselves and unconsciously resent the idea of competition. I'm not saying that's OP's case-- just that while that might not be the best reason, at least such people don't let themselves be rooked into breeding by the kind of unthinking idiots that are babbling at OP.

    The world is in the shape it's in partly because there are too many of us, and too many of us are stupid.

  • And who fault is that.

  • I think that's the point, O Grammatically Challenged One

  • Absouletly...need not to be bothered about what they say its your life and you are the one to decide
