Those who've met me on the abortion thread are probably not surprised to find out I'm childfree. In fact I am anti IVF or any fertility technologies, pro-choice and fully support euthanasia. (The world is overpopulated.) I've also been known to JOKE that abortion should be legal up to the first 18 YEARS.
Having said this I love kids and get a complete kick out of giving them back to their weary overworked parents at the end of a quick sitter session.
No seriously now. I reckon it's high time men and women were more openly 'allowed' to be childfree and considered responsible adults. Childfree adults take their responsibility into other areas of life. We do good in the world in our own way.
When I said, I love kids - it's true. I work with them in many ways. Mostly, angsty teens, troubled youths, criminal youths, physically disabled teens to adults and mentally disabled teens to adults. I understand them for some reason.
Childfree is a valid choice and doesn't reflect a set opinion about children. It's all about, 'when I envision my life, what do I see?' And following that dream. If, like Morgan, it's DEATH, then I say 'SPREAD THE DARK WORD' til ya given freedom from the mortal coil. Do the good dark work as a responsible childfree death lover, dark lover and compassionate beauty of the shadows.
For me, I dunno - there's still time for kids if I change my vision, my dreams, my goals. I'm open. At this stage I'm happy childfree with no plan to change that status. If I change I'll be happy with it. If I remain childfree, I'll also be happy.
I definitely get pissed off with the boring, straight world of 'me, my partner, my kids, my dog, my white picket fence, my boring dress sense, my extreme right wing morals, my family values, my mortgage, my pointless job, my ability to believe whatever I'm told...etc' It's enough to make ya wanna kill yrself.
I am proud of those who break the mould and follow themselves!
