Being child-free by choice, I have got used to justifying myself to others over the years. I don't mind people who are just making polite conversation when asking if I have or want children, but the look on people's faces when I say, "No" often says a great deal about what they think of me or what they are going to say next. And it's often negative or patronising.
Of course, not everyone automatically has an (often unintentional) questioning, condescending, sometimes offensive attitude.
But only the other day I got, "Don't ALL women want children?" as if I am some kind of freak.
But as I have talked about this extensively on my other pages, and listed the reasons why I don't want children, I'll just leave it at that, and let you watch this cartoon video I have made. It's based on truth as I have had all of these questions and statements in the past year at some point. Enjoy!
