Today, after listening to a group of my friends ranting on about how much they love babies and can't wait to have them, I got to witness their looks of horror and disgust as I expressed my desire to not have children. I also happened to be the only girl there. FML

I hope you don't live life like the way you've chosen to comment on this FML, otherwise, I'm sorry to say it will be the last good "1st" for you for a while. Just a warning

This is true, unfortunately many people don't like that. Af if everybody should think kids are the greatest beings in the world. And I know this from experience, as I've had plenty of arguments and fights about this very subject.

Woman aren't expected to want either of these. That's why they become nuns or choose to not have kids. There are woman out there who don't want that.

Indeed #72 I think the original post from #5 just meant that sadly there are still some who think a woman's role is to procreate and that, she personally has known some women who have not wanted children either. Still a bit unsure why she is getting thumbed down someone inform me if I'm misinterpreting this.

#73 I think it is the lack of the word some. It is being seen as a generalization about the majority of people instead of a comment on how some people still think that. People on FML don't really like generalizations.

I did type it out quickly and late at night so I apologize for any miscommunication but yes some people do still expect women to want to be wives and mothers when that's just not for everyone

For everybody who doesn't get the joke, #6 is saying it's easy to want kids when you don't have to carry them inside your body for a long ass time.

And it's the funniest shit I've seen all day. Thank you #6.

Thank you, 81!

One can only hope that both parents would be involved in the long run and enjoy parenthood, but pregnancy and birth? Yikes! That's a trial and having support along the way can help but it's not the same as experiencing it yourself.

True story! I'd probably be less opposed to the idea of children (even though I truly cannot stand children under 5...the younger they are, the more I despise them) if I wouldn't be the one dealing with nine months of sickness , swelling, and pain, not to mention pushing a watermelon through an exhaust pipe at the end.

It's all cool to not want to have babies. I don't either. I've had a girl lie to me saying she was pregnant and had a miscarriage. Not everyone is meant to have kids.
