iamserenebabe asked: You don't want children. I know this. What I want to is, do people actually try to tell you that you do? Or should? I don't understand that. I understand not wanting children more than I understand telling someone they should want them (and I wanted children ferociously since I was a child myself).
yes, people do try and tell me that i *should* have kids without even hearing that i’ve said i don’t want them. or rather, that i really do want kids. now that i’m in my forties, it’s less of an issue than it was. but people still respond to my saying i’ll never have kids with, “oh, you never know,” with that condescending twinkling tone of voice. i usually respond to that with, “yes, actually i do know, because if i had an unplanned pregnancy, i would terminate it, because i definitely do not want children, as i just said.” the thing that bugs me is not the implication that i should have kids so much as the smug, knowing attitude suggesting i do actually want children and i’m mistaken when i think i don’t.
it doesn’t happen frequently, but it just infuriates me when it does, on so many levels.
but the post i reblogged was, for me, less about wanting/not wanting children and more about needing the choice to decide in the case of unplanned pregnancy.
Even though I’m almost 28. Still. This. Yes.
