Why I am Childfree

by Tiffany | November 13, 2018 9:32 am

I am more than my womb or the children that society thinks that I should be having. My lack of parenthood doesn’t make me less of a woman. I am not any less fulfilled than I would if I had children, in fact I would be less fulfilled. There is no meter on accomplishment, fulfillment, success, hard work, or tiredness. Or that having kids makes that somehow make all these things mean more or less, it means the same. Just like it was my choice to not have children, it was a parent’s choice to have children. So, I am not any less anything because of that, if someone feels that way then that is on them. I respect good parents but those also aren’t the ones insulting me when I say I am tried for working hard either.

I can’t imagine loving a kid as much as I love my old bunny Lemon, and I don’t want to.

The thought of pregnancy to me seems disgusting, creepy, gross, and scary.

Children are horrible. (Oh! but everyone said their angel is special. ‘eyeroll’)

I just don’t think that I could take care of a child, I have a hard enough time taking care of myself and the buns. I don’t want to try anyway.

I like silence.

Having kids is bad for the Earth, it’s already overpopulated.

I want to spend time doing what I want and not what some bratty kid wants.

I don’t want to plan my life around children.

I don’t have to worry about parenthood having a negative impact on a career.

I’m not a mombie.

I just don’t think I am responsible enough.

Look at the news, school shootings, NRA, crime, and anti-vaxxers. Those are all threats that I don’t have to fear for children that I don’t have.

Money, I don’t have to spend on a child.

I can play with my neighbor’s children and give them back when they are being horrible. I don’t have to deal with the bad parts.

I’m selfish, literally the same reason for not wanting to be in a relationship, but I don’t want this human being to tie me to someone else for the rest of my life.
