I don't think it is pointless.. this is like saying a German's life is pointless without beer, or an American's life is pointless without Burger King. While almost all people that don't want children are extremely selfish, they aren't pointless. People should be able to have opinions.
I personally want children when I'm older.

This is a stupid thread.

You're asking if someone is worth anything if they don't procreate. Are all sterile people worthless? Should they be killed?

I wouldn't ever call myself a feminist since the rise of what I call 'the college feminist', but the fact that you specify women is insulting. Why would a woman without children be worth less than a man without children? Why do you consider fatherhood to be less than motherhood?

Timothy 2:12
Corinthians 11:3
Corinthians 14:34
Genesis 3:16

Apparently "God" says a woman has no say in the matter, so it's really up to her husband.

Agreed on this one. You're missing out if you don't have a cat.

Not everyone is fit to be a parent. You don't have to have children if you don't want to. Only when you are ready. so that means birth control methods should be applied.

As long as you have a fun life, then it's not pointless at all!

Some woman are born with a want in life that is never fulfilled until they have children other woman are born with the will that their lives are complete even without children its called the mother gene. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-stir/mom-gene_b_1920399.html This is just one of many articles out there about this gene and I think it leads to the study itself.

I think the OP of this thread's point went straight over your head. At no point did they say anything about men or fatherhood, neither negative nor positive. There's nothing sexist about specifying women in the question; especially given the double standards about the subject. 'Is a woman’s life pointless without children?', 'Is a man’s life pointless without children?' and 'Is a anyone’s life pointless without children?' are questions that will all produce different answers.

It's already generally seen in society that it's fine for a man to get through life without ever having children if they so choose, yet women are still treated like their ambitions and wants are secondary to eventually giving birth. There's nothing stupid about sparking a discussion about that.

Idk it can go either way.. Yeah you'd go through life thinking about what the pain of giving birth is like... .-. But idk lol I want kids ^.^ that way when I get old I have someone to watch over me :3 so maybe it is pointless. But with or w.o kids I can still continue to live and do the things I want todo but I think with kids. You just enjoy it more or Atleast when they get older ^.^

Think it depends on the woman. But would love to see less women and men procreating voraciously just because they're bored.

There's nothing wrong with not wanting to have kids. If I ever wanted kids I'd probably adopt as there are so many children out there already with nobody to take care of or love them.


I agree with the above statement..Whether it be their parents died, gave them up or had them taken away due to drugs and/or abuse there are plenty of homeless children out there seeking a good home.

I myself have no kids and that's because one girl I was engaged to after 5 years aborted it after 5 months because she wanted to go party instead. Which only showed later when she was caught that she was a cheater too...

I don't believe everyone should be a parent since there are so many crappy parents in the world raising monsters...

No, a woman can live an enjoyable life without children. Some people don't want to have kids, and they choose not to. Does that make their lives 'pointless'? No.

This is sort of degrading in a way. Implying that a woman's point in life is to make children and nothing more. Alot of women choose not to have children and that's their choice. It doesn't make their life pointless.
