Nope. I can almost guarantee I'd have been called a bitch or worse if I'd been standing in front of the exact same woman, because I find babies to be the polar opposite of cure and would have been doing all I could to ignore it, pay for my groceries and be on my way. Chin up, OP. You would've lost regardless of how you handled the situation.
Welllll, fancy that, 67! I just so happen to not want children to begin with! Thanks for the retroactive suggestion, I'll be sure to take it to heart. Too bad the wailing never really stops until they're preteens. Even then, it only turns to scorn and backtalk as they age. Fuggetaboudit!
It really pisses me off that there are so many people out there who automatically think a man is a pedophile just because he likes children or finds them adorable. I don't see people up in arms every time a woman does the same thing. That woman is a bitch op and don't you listen to her.
And if you're a woman who doesn't like children and doesn't find them adorable, you're automatically a psychopath! Just because babies disgust me does not mean I wish harm on them, just as it doesn't mean a guy is sexually attracted to kids if he finds them charming.
I'm female and I don't want kids. Whenever I have my two-month-old niece with me, people assume she's mine. I correct them and am always asked where MY kids are or when I'm having kids. I tell them never, because I wouldn't be a good mother. I've been repeatedly told "Oh, you'll change your mind when you have them." or "Oh, kids are easy." or "Oh, but you're so good with your niece." I've even been told by a random guy that I SHOULD have kids because my parents had me. Um, what? I know myself better than random strangers and I know I couldn't do it.
Damn, 51, I don't even have the patience to watch a two-month old for any length of time! It really is remarkable how strangers think they know you better than you do. Or family, as well. In spite of the fact that I generally spend most family gatherings avoiding my cousin's one-year-old like the plague, my aunts and uncles are always trying to contrive ways of getting me to read to the baby, play a game with the baby, sing to the baby, etc. because they're convinced that once I realize how awesome this baby is (maybe true for the parents, definitely is not for me), I'll want one of my own. You'd think they'd take a hint after the first 5000 times I said, "I think Grandma would be better suited to do that," but nope!
FYL for sure. Some parents just go crazy when you look at/say anything to their kids. I'm a woman and yet, I've had people look at me like I was a dangerous criminal just 'cause I smiled to their kid and gently told them, "Pardon me, young boy/girl" 'cause they were standing in my way... I don't even wanna imagine what it's like when you're a man and you just happen to be nice to kids.
