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!

Damian: when my spouse bugs me about having children, I tell him "I'll do it--when you have sex with a man." Something he definitely doesn't want to do. That's the equivalent.

Children? I love children---providing that they've been properly cooked.

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.

@Black Magic Woman....you are right and it is really really annoying!!!!
Comment by Black Magick Woman on July 14, 2010 at 5:38am
@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. ?!?!

@ Grundgetta, thanks for the warm welcome...as for your question about childfree groups in Abuja, there aint any...i have never met another childfree nigerian here in abuja except myself...anytime i bring the issue up about wanting to remain childfree, all i get are responses from people who think i have lost my mind!!!

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.
