    This comment deserves an award for being a big load of crap and the worst argument made in this debate.

    "You don't know who you aren't reproducing."

    The child I never have, with male whom I don't know, could be the next Hitler too, but chances are my unreproduced kid will be the next nobody. My kid won't be fully white or culturally American, so I guess you don't want ME to reproduce anyway...

    So hold on a second what kind of ****ed up person are you that your kid could be the next Hitler?

    That depends on who you want to believe.

    Another myth with no basis in reality. You can have three normal kids, and a psychopath. It happens.

    This is true, but she had to use a great extreme to try and make a point. I am simply being extreme along with her.

    I said my kid would most likely be a nobody, not an Edison and not a Hitler

    Fair enough but that isn't very nice to say that about your unborn children. I have to be one of the most pessimistic, negative people in the world and that is even to negative for me.

    There's some literature out there that does a decent job outlining all the pro-baby-making attitudes and beliefs, cultural expectations, and institutional benefits.

    Not that child-free folks have it so unfair (in fact that's what I don't like about a lot of the child-free lit, too whiny). But honestly I just find all the automatic assumptions and subtle judgments, regarding kids as a when-not-if notion, to be nothing more than an annoyance. Just a moderate irritation that'll have me liking you a little less.
