That is SO true I've had folk who, when they find out I dont have kids, will say ''But who will look after you in your old age?'' or, the best one, ''You must have a terribly lonely life''
I don't hate kids (folk just cannot accept that fact) - I was just born without a broody gene.....well broody for a naked baby, I love my furry ones
Having been bred specifically to take care of my parents in their old age,
I personally feel this is a pretty selfish reason to have a child. Oh, I did
my duty and saw both parents loved and cared for until they passed on,
but I have no wish to reproduce for that or any other reason. I just do
not like kids. I'm not comfortable around kids, so why would I want to be
responsible for one 24/7 for some 18-21 years? My mother warned me
repeatedly that I would die "old, alone, and lonely," without a child in my
life, to which I would reply that was impossible so long as there was a cat
or a horse in the world.
To others who feel it's abnormal not to want a baby, I tell them I prefer
"children" I can lock in a crate or a stall and walk away from.
seems to shock the 'Baby Yay!" community into agreeing I shouldn't have
