There is nothing "selfish" about being childfree. We give of ourselves in our own unique ways. As far as I'm concerned, I prefer to focus on what I'm here to do and ANY distraction of such magnitude would severely inhibit, if not eradicate PURPOSE.

Not to mention, I, too have never cared for children. Even when I WAS a child, I disliked younger children.

Even my cats hate children. If they come into the gallery, my kitties run for the hills for fear of their shrieks, getting their tails pulled and other improprieties that only rug rats would do.

Not to mention that children carry a whole host of nasty diseases that I choose NOT to be exposed to.

Ugh, there's nothing more frustrating to me than some kid screaming his head off in Walmart.  Makes me want to shake somebody.

I really don't care why it's happening, and I don't care what you have to do to make it stop.  The fact remains that regardless of why your standing there pretending that your brat is not shattering glass with that screech, I shouldn't have to be subjected to it.  This is my greatest pet peeve, and I'm one of the first people to turn around and say "Hey, shut your brat up, he's giving me a fucking headache."  I hate screaming kids....  

Are you ignoring it in the hopes that it will go away?  Does his psychiatrist feel that this is the best way to handle things?  Could you really be stupid enough to think that your brat is a 'great kid' and that this behaviour is 'sweet?'
Or do you honestly think that the rest of the world thinks it is cute?

They should make child sized Ball Gags.  End of problem...

Safiyah!  'Child-sized ball gags'!  OMG!  I am totally wiping off my keyboard...I just spewed my wine all over it!  :laugh:

And Musicman, I gotta disagree with you on your statement...no-one's life is worth more than my own; but to each their own view.  And if a squirrel and a kid ran in front of my car at the same time, I'd be sure to miss the squirrel, no ifs, ands, or buts. I *hate* seeing poor little squirrels squashed in the street.  Ruins my whole day.  :cry:

:asthanos:  <---  but one less brat?  just call it posthumous birth control.  (oh, i am *so* gonna burn for that one.)

Man, this stuff is as funny as my other forum.  I about fell out of my chair (Daoine).  

I must admit I do treat children with civility, though I also avoid them to the best of my ability.  After all, some of them do grow up to be people, one day.

Would I risk my life for one?  Uh. . .let us see!  I want to be legally dead, by the Higher Law so I don't have to come back.  If my FINAL death was guaranteed, sure.  Better someone else be stuck in this situation that I don't want than me, huh?  I don't see it as a sacrifice.  I see it as DELIVERANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I see life itself as my main worthless parasite.)

Alas, Leiliah, the finest of the childfree forums have been shut down.  The illustrious Turtle (founder of the BRATS! board and companion forum) called it quits after almost 10 years just back in January.  He said it had (d)evolved to a point where it had became people's entire lives to rant and was just far beyond what his vision was, and it was taking too much of his energy, and he had to get on with his life (still childfree, as he is vasectomized), but he had weathered a divorce, and numerous other life changes.

I believe there is a site on LiveJournal where many of the board posters have moved, but it's 'not the same'.  The Childfree webring still exists, http://www.ringsurf.com/netring?ring=childfree;action=list , and Nina Paley, the cartoonist/illustrator has a number of funny bits on her site www.ninapaley.com , but the best has been laid to rest.  

But hey, now we've got here!  :skullgrin:  Wonder if it's going to stir up new traffic, somehow?

:asthanos:  <--- yeah, i can see it now!  someday you'll be able to google 'childfree necromantic'!

i have a very vivid memory of one xmas when i was about 5 or 6. i am now and have always been a loner, and never felt any maternal instincts. anyways, my older sister decided i would love a "realistic" baby doll for a gift...even at that age, i remember the horror i felt as i opened this so called gift and realized only too well what it was...the very symbol of what i was expected to become..."mother". UGH!!!!! i freaked out and wouldn't touch the damn thing...i think she took it back to the store, and it was never mentioned again. as i've stated already, i've never felt the urge to procreate, even as a small child i knew this, and in fact i never enjoyed being a kid myself, and never liked kids as a kid myself. i couldn't wait to grow up, and at almost 40, i feel the same. it's anoying at times and amusing at other times how so many people give you the very strong impression that there is something intrinsically wrong with you if you don't want/like children. there's enough of us here for craps sake...we are like a virus to some extent as far as i'm concerned!

:cat: not :cry: ...i'm SO with that!!!

I got my tubes tied when I was 29 and it was some of the best money I ever spent. Even as a child I NEVER wanted to play "house"; or "nuns finding a baby" (I told you cat-licks were weird!) for me it was "Goddesses and Amazons!"
What really bothers me are helicopter parents, constantly hovering over little Tiffany or Alexander, forever pointing out to anyone in earshot just how precious their little geniuses are. I would happily strap the little brats into a kid-a-pult and fling them into the closest active volcano.  :headbang: MUAHAHAHA!

Let me guide myself with the blue, forked torch of this flower
down the darker and darker stairs where blue is darkened on blueness
even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark
