Dude, I seriously love childfree
, but I can't visit those comms but maybe once a month - if that.
Thing is? While I'm all about the childfree, every time I go into those places I come out with a feeling of "oh, no, the breeders are going to eat me alive! All my rights are going to go away! HEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLP! They're gonna make me have baybeeeeeeez!"
Then I have to take a deep breath and remind myself that, I live in America and Plan B is becoming ever more accessible and hey - I'm not that offended by kids. With the except of especially obnoxious ones, I don't get squicked by children. They don't bother me.
So, no need to panic.
Besides, I just don't have the emotional strength to get upset about something like that for any extended period of time. It's the same reason I can't join mock_the_stupid
. If I only thought about the crappy things in life, I would fall apart. I need my gleeposts, dude.
The only reason I go in there is sometimes there's interesting links, discussion, and people are good about giving out the names of doctors who'll sterilize you without "bingoing" you.
I'm giving myself three more years before I really confront the sterilization issue. I figure if by 25 I'm still set in my childfree ways, then off to the gyno I go. Besides, trying to get someone to give me essure or a tubal at 22 would be damn near impossible.
