So much this. I am a woman and I just .... cannot stand children. I hate it when I'm anywhere in public and they start screaming because mother won't buy them a lolly. I find children to be extremely off putting because so many of them are ill-mannered and ill-tempered. I do not have the patience for their screaming nonsense.
I'm in my 20's now and have a long term partner and his parents are upset we won't get married, and his grandmother is upset we won't get married and have grandkids for her. Most infuriating of all, if you mention you don't like kids people immediately reel and think you're some kind of monster and you must be miserable and hate life.
People don't realize children are an extremely costly financial, physical, emotional and psychological investment. And frankly some people who have them aren't even prepared to make any of those costs. I can speak from experience being a child of neglect myself (parent realized she didn't want kids once we became teens and I got kicked out) and then through that, sharing shelters with women who'd rather spend all day Facebooking rather than keeping an eye on their kid who keeps trying to touch my laptop because he thinks it's a toy.
Look mate, you think children are the best thing since sliced bread, great, but stay out of my uterus's business. I just love that we've come so far yet people still can't understand that not wanting kids is a perfectly valid choice. You'll never hear the end of "But you'll regret it later when you're 40". Jesus christ I'm not a fucking animal, passing on genes doesn't mean I "live through" my offspring or any stupid notion like that. I can just adopt, and I'd be more financially set up to support one then too.
