General Do you want children?

No way. The reasons are many:

1. The children don't get a vote and life is hard.

2. The planet's full.

3. They're a huge expense.

4. They take up ALL your time.

5. My genes suck.

6. It really just doesn't appeal to me. I like my nieces and nephews for a few hours and then I'm happy to have alone time again. A kid who never goes away sounds like such a major hassle.

Exactly. I have taken steps to make sure I can't have kids. Not that I would ever have the chance, but just in case.

Taking steps isn't necessary for me. :yuck:

Honestly? No. I've got such a predisposition to mental illness, I wouldn't want to pass that down to my kids, especially how cruel the world can be to those who aren't defined by the definition of "normal". It's not that I'm not caring, I just rather not have a child with some mental illness/disability struggle a lot more than other kids in the world, plus I don't think I could provide well considering my own issues.

I don't want someone that struggled the same, if not worse, problems that I did.

Me neither, but I did it out of spite.

I just posted here recently, I know, but my opinion has changed slightly. I'm starting to sort of want to adopt a kid, maybe. My opinion changed after watching an episode of Criminal Minds. Specifically, the episode where Agent Morgan's kid is born and he leaves the BAU to take care of his little boy. :) I don't know why but it made me think that I might sort of want to adopt one (because I don't need my bad genes going around, plus it helps a kid in need :D Oh and also two guys can't reproduce).

I kinda don’t like kids right now but you never know when you change your mind, you know??  I wouldn’t want to conceive children either but adopting was always something I thought of.  My mom or relatives would ask me if I wanted kids and I’d just puff up and yell “I’M ADOPTING”...  Hope you find a guy you’re comfortable enough with for potentially having kids one day, if that’s what you want!!!  You never know what the future will bring.

I'm being chemically sterilized thanks to my current treatment so that's out of the question. Even if I wasn't, I still don't want kids. Very high chance of them inheriting some of my bullshit, which I don't want.

No. Simply put; no.

Why is that? Cause they are hard to deal with, and the adult who can admit that while knowing they can't deal with kids is a true adult in my eyes (as is the adult who CAN manage them; don't get me wrong). My biological mother didn't like kids and really couldn't handle me; which lead to me being adopted by my grandparents.

You have to not only want and love kids, but also have the mental, physical, and financial foundations to raise, support, and love them in. While my biological mother never raised me, I consider her a mother in that it took courage to give me up.

As for me? I'm not up to it; simply put. A few weekends ago we watched my grand-niece and I couldn't handle it. Sweet kid, but it just shows that it takes SO MUCH commitment to raise a kid. I value my 'me' time too much, and my nerves can only take so much. No thanks.

How did you go with finding a doctor? I'm heavily leaning towards sterilization too as part of a long-term plan, but I heard far too many stories of some doctors refusing to give women a referral to someone who can do that.

I'm a transwoman. My treatment naturally stops my ability to have children. You really don't want to go my route...

I'm pretty solidly at "No" right now. I'm a bit grouchy nowadays, and being around children (especially young children) just irritates me. They're too loud and messy and gross. As I feel like I say pretty much anytime this subject comes up: "No thanks, I'm satisfied being an aunt."

I'd be lying if I said this is how I want to feel, though. I don't know what's going on with me these days. I mean I certainly shouldn't ever have a child myself, but I don't like my grouchiness.

Oh, hell, no. There's no way I'll be having kids.
I'd like to have a girlfriend/wife, though.

Having a kids means you'll have to sacrifice your entire life and throw away anything you wanted to do with it. Who'd actually want/do that? :yeahno:
And with having to stress yourself out, work more, spend more money, and have less time to yourself and your spouse, it doesn't seem worth it whatsoever. :sunny:

I value the relationships I have above having kids, I always have.

Plus, did you know that kids are sociopaths? It's true. Explains a lot, don't it? :huh:
