After reading this thread, it still can't believe we are in the year 2003 (nearly 2004) and people are making these kind of comments.
One of my guy friends, once said that he didn't want children. The immediate response he had was "WHAT?" or "You'll change your mind." I just said to him, it's your choice, but you'll have to go and babysit for me in 10 years
He was so happy that I didn't react like the others, he feels free to talk to me about more personal things, he knows that I won't jump out the window.
My opinion on this is that it really pains me that people are having children and not caring about them.
I have a huge amount of respect for those who can say that they don't want any, and have reasons for it, and are happy.
People that are having children and not caring about them, hurting them, leaving them alone, THAT is unacceptable and should be looked at as completely crazy.
brenna, darling, I admire you so much for not letting these people put you down
I admire a lot of you folks, and I'm still in shock of what I've read here. People are really mean sometimes.
