Leilah! Â You did it!
Â A 'Childfree Necromantic' thread! Â (I'd like to take credit for the fabulous term 'childfree', but alas, it's not mine.)
Uh-oh, the flood-gates have been opened...do you have any idea what you've unleashed? Â
Well, everyone who has been on this board for awhile knows that you and I are totally on a par with this topic, so there's really no need for me to 'preach to the choir' here, but you *know* this thread could turn pretty ugly! Â But I gotcher back!
As I'm sure everyone also knows, I'm spayed and very happy that way; never in my whole life did I ever entertain thoughts of being a breeder, never once pregnant, or even a scare; I've been that careful. (Not that I would have had the least compunction about getting a little parasite sucked outta me faster than you can say 'Roe vs. Wade'.) No-one's gonna change my mind (or convince me that their offspring are any different than anyone else's; or better, or smarter, cuter, quieter, more creative, 'no, really, you'd like mine!') Whatever. If it's under, say, 18, I really don't want anything to do with it. I'm not even particularly fond of my own nephew.
Not like/want brats? Unbelievable! Incomprehensible that someone really hates children, unequivocally? Will do *anything* to avoid being around them? You betcha.
Call me selfish, self-centered, self-absorbed, narcissistic, whatever. People call those insults? I call them virtues.
I know this is going to cause problems with those on the board who aren't childfree, that this is a forum for the childfree to vent and rant, but I hope they'll realize that while they're welcome to come and read what we say (and not like it at all), that this forum isn't about/*for* them...but I don't want to turn this into an 'us vs. them' kinda thing, but considering what's happened to the other 'childfree' boards on the 'net, I fear the worst.
<--- here we go!
(just to be fair, shouldn't there also be a 'necromantic parenting' thread? then we can all have our own!)
