Just stop listening to others for advice and look within yourself. All the answers are within you.

I cant say for sure, because I'm a dude. but I love kids and really can't see myself not having them. The thing is I loved children ever since I met my niece when I was age 11.

Goals all animals naturally have in life:

- Survive
- Mature and reproduce
- Die after passing the reproductive age. Although humans tend to stick around to teach the next generation and play golf.

No there isn't anything more than that.

Within the confines of this board your belief is entirely true - it's not exactly rocking the boat to say you don't want kids. In the real world I can assure you that it's a real thing

It's only been in the last 10 years that professionals in their 30s and 40s without kids have become at all common. Even now it's unusual.

Assumptions. And how would you know? If you're the retarded looking loser in your picture, you seem to lack the capabilities to have kids (let alone get laid). And since I assumed you can't have kids, that makes you worse off than those wal-mart bozos who do have kids. Thus you are a burden on mankind for being unable to carry on the species.

That is true, and a good point. But whether it was common or not wasn't what was asked right? It was if a person, specifically a woman's life ceased to have value in the absence of having children. So does someone stop having value if they are biologically incapable of having children? That is what I was suggesting was ridiculous. You miss out on some things and get to experience others based on the choices you make in life. That would be true of any choice you make whether its to have children or not, or to go to college or not. But I still think its a leap to say that a man, or a woman, or any humans life loses value based on any single choice they make.

I'll be turning 32 this year (us old folks can still be anime fans darn it!) and just last month made my choice to not have kids be a permanent one. I love children, I just know for certain I don't want any of my own. I have several reasons for this; bad genetics (I'm a very sick person myself), time and interest. That's not to say that if I suddenly gain the desire (however unlikely) that I'm above adoption. I'm a strong believer in adoption.

I've been telling people I'd never be the mother of a human being since I was 7 and my mind has never swayed. Does that make me any less of a woman? Not hardly. I don't have a relationship or children and I am VERY HAPPY with my life right now. Sure, I'd like a relationship in the future some time but I don't need one to validate my existence. Just as I don't need children to validate my life's worth.

I do, however, call myself mommy to four very adorable fancy rats and that's absolutely perfect and satisfying enough for me. =)

Apparently my life is meaningless if I don't bear children. My life is not centered around having kids, that's not what I envision for my future, and I don't believe that's my sole purpose in life.


Well, since you aren't solely an animal, no your life isn't meaningless if you refrain from having children. You're welcome to change your mind in the future, or adopt if you feel there genetic disadvantages that you don't want to risk passing to the next generation.

We're no longer in the Middle Ages, or in a situation where the population level demands women be constant baby factories. It's up to you to determine what meaning, if any, your life has. No one else gets to decide that for you.

Of course not. I hate when people spew the nonsense that children=fufillment/purpose. Kids are more or less 18 years plus of busy work and stress whom their parents will screw up in someway regardless of their quality. I am not opposed to the idea of kids its just that theres plenty of other meaningful things one can do with their lives. Having a kid does not = purpose and is simply living proof you've had sex. Meaning and person is subjective. Kids can be a wonderful thing but never forget that they are essentially whiny, selfish creatures who eat your food, spend your money, and are ungrateful for all your work for the most part.

Kids are cute and all and we are genetically hardwired to propagate ourselves as a species, but frankly... who cares? If a women wants to live her life never having to be responsible for another living soul she's perfectly within her rights. It's not like there is some pressing need to reproduce for survival anymore. So if a women doesn't want to have a kid that's perfectly alright with me, no one can dictate to you what has meaning to your life but yourself.

GIRL POWER!
