The Childless and Godless


The Childless and Godless

This is a group to discuss the joy of being childless! I am amazed at the number of atheists I have met over the past few years that are childless by choice, here is a place to discuss stories and experiences!

I use the animal defense (as I do have 2 male cats that require a lot of love and care). Other than that it's "I don't want to", but a large group of people don't seem to understand what that means..

What would be the equivalent of telling a childfree person that they should have kids? Would telling a parent that they shouldn't have had kids over the top:)? We need a good come back. I like the "I more of an animal person" response, but haven't had a situation where i could use it. We need a zinger to make people realize that it's offensive to push us in that direction, and that we actually have a mind of our own.

@Closet..that seems to be the presumption (and rejection) by many, many people.

ONE of the reasons I don't have children is that I can't afford them. A woman that doesn't know me told me not to worry about that because I would find a way to afford them. ?!?!

Closet: having in-laws from India, they are always asking me when I am going to have a baby. It is the same thing there. I asked my sister in law if she wanted to have kids when she got married, and she said "of course, it's every woman's dream!" Um, no it isn't.

Welcome, Closet Nigerian Atheist! Are there any childfree groups in Abuja? I don't know of any local to me, but I do know childfree people.

I used to get those comments too... "You will change your mind", etc... I just tell people now that my eggs are past their "use by" date.

I wouldn't joke about the license...I seriously advocate it! A license or a test or something! I would love a new car for getting sterilized!

I'm telling you, that movie "idiocracy" does not seem too far fetched now.

No one that is muchly influenced by retards is qualified to have children. That group includes 99% of Americans. The others should have kids if the child's environment can be a positive thing. This scenario is not about to happen anytime soon.

I've seen parents who managed to be permissive-neglective and permissive-indulgent at the same time. These people accused me of hating their kids when I talked about not wanting to have kids. Also, didn't stop their kid from screaming in a friend's face, but then of course they went off endlessly on this person when she finally told the kid to shut up.
