I'm obviously not child-free. I think everyone should make their own decions about having children. There is no need for everyone
to have children, and I think it is a very mature decision to say, "I really don't want kids. I don't feel 'obligated' to have them, and I won't!" I know some crappy parents who probably should have chosen their route, as well as some people who would
have made good parents, but simply didn't want to; which is a perfect reason for not breeding.
The only problem I have with the "Child Free Nation" is that some of the members are mean to children and parents. I've seen some message boards that talk about people high fiving each other for insulting pregnant women or mothers with babies, encouraging people to hit or pinch or even KICK other people's children in public (along with strategies for "not getting caught") and other really intolerant, mean, immoral actions and thoughts.
As long as People Without Children are kind to children and are as accepting of MY choice as I am of theirs
, I'm cool with it. As soon as someone starts telling me what I should do with my own body I'm going into hyper-bitch drive
Most people who choose not to have children seem to be kind and tolerant. And, I do respect those who don't have kids just because society "expects" us to have them.
I love my kids, however, but my choice is my and my husband's alone.
