'Compared to animals, children are useless'

01 December 2015, 08:45

Not having a child is her choice. She didn't go for women who did and those who went for her were looking for a fight. Most likely, they are the over-religious type who believe women belong barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen tending to a man.

I chose not to have children because I have too many medical complications. I have a higher risk of heart attacks, cancer, etc and there are too many unwanted children in the world just waiting for a home.

The economy and education are at such a bad point and bringing a child into this world is more cruel than kind. The world doesn't need a second me.

People who believe that a woman must get pregnant because of some ridiculous belief should take a look at the starving children on the streets, the unemployed students (I'm not talking about those useless idiots who want a free pass on everything and not work for it), how parents are struggling to buy food, pay school fees and just provide a stable life for their children in this fallen world.

I take my hat off to her for facing an outdated theory created by an outdated society and not backing down. In my words, Screw 'em.

I have 3 children and I love them to the moon and back, but having children is not for everyone.

If you don't want children, you shouldn't have to explain yourself. It is your choice and your choice only. But you should make that clear to any potential life partner so that they are not blindsided and find out a year after being married because having children might be something they want.

We're all different and unique, thus our decisions and choices vary from one another. People must let other people be and stop being speculators' and judgmental. they are not God! Focus on what you want and on what makes you happy as an individual. Live your own life finish.

I Never felt the need to have children. The world is overpopulated enough without me adding to it. I prefer animals to humans. I have 6 dogs and six cats and they are so special. It's just always how I felt. I love kids but have never really been into the coochy coo baby stuff. I find babies the most useless creatures. I always look at the animal kingdom and they are so much more advanced when they are born. They are amazing and humans are useless for so many years. I probably had lots of kids in my previous lives so I have none in this life.
