Well, I know I'm quite young to be thinking about this now (not even being the age to get out of high school yet) but it seems like my mother and lots of other people I come across think my decision is wrong. It's not uncommon for people to ask here: "Oh, how many kids do you want?" Or "Once you're older and have kids, what do you plan to do?" And when I reply "Well, I really don't want any children, I'm just not that type of person." That I actually get disapproving glance or different statements telling me why I have to have one because no man wants a woman who doesn't want children. My mother and some of her friends on a pretty regular basis make little jabs at it, mentioning how I'll love brining my kids back and what not or just telling me I'll change my mind. And even though I am again, quite young, I am pretty fairly certain I won't want a child. So I guess my question is, am I some kind of horrible, uncaring person that people seem to see me as ? Are they tight in saying that there isn't a man who would marry me because I don't want offspring?
