    Hey..they are not everyone's bag..
    Because I don't want kids, I never have, and I don't see any reason to believe I ever will. Why wait? Why continue blowing money on temporary, recurrent costs, and constant opportunities for user error when I could just be done with it? It's a load off my mind.

    I don't particularly care for children. Dislike might be a bit strong. I understand they're just doing what they do -- but I don't like what they do. I prefer not to spend too much time around them if I can help it, especially if they're under 10 or so.

    I feel sorry for people who have so little going for them that they think their ability to reproduce makes them better than those who choose otherwise.

    I guess if that's all you got, then go for it, but I will continue to regard people according to more meaningful criteria.

    So, I guess, no more monthly cycles, sanitary pads, condoms and fear of unwanted pregnancy?

    Everything about my cycle is exactly the same. A tubal ligation does nothing but block the fallopian tubes. All the same hormones are in play, and the uterus will get the signals even if the ova never shows up at its intended destination. And I'm glad. I think of it like a monthly "All clear!"

    No condoms assuming I'm monogamous and we're both tested, which presently is the case. I was still a bit nervous the first new months -- years of having that in the back of your head don't go away overnight. But not so much anymore, no.

    No, however they should not be giving advice on how to raise childrend like so many high educated without children do.

    They are biological failures. Isn't that enough?

    Of course not. That's a silly question IMO

    Lol. Now that's funny. Mother Teresa was a biological failure, but a tremendous success in fields outside of biological reproduction. Some one-celled creatures reproduce asexually. I'd hardly call that a triumph, but it's certainly a biological success story. Maybe the childless are actually helping out with the gene pool a bit, in which case we owe them a debt of gratitude. I, for one, certainly appreciate the fact that Michael Moore hasn't reproduced. At least, I hope not.

    Re: Should childless couples be considered inferior?

    I'm all for couples in healthy relationships reproducing, it's a wonderful thing. Some couples, however, should be commended for restraint. Not everyone is cut out for parenting. In either case, merely reproducing doesn't reflect the worthiness of an individual or a couple for that matter.
