16 Things Women Without Children Need You To Know

Please stop asking us when we are going to reproduce.

1. It is none of your business why we have not reproduced.

2. And neither is the state of our "biological clock."

3. And quite frankly, asking us when we are going to start popping out babies is weird.

4. Just because having children was the "best decision you ever made" doesn't mean we have to make that same decision.

5. Our lives can still be perfectly fulfilled without children.

6. If/when we decide to reproduce, it's NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

7. It's kind of rude to assume that because we don't have children, we don't have responsibilities.


Or that we sleep in until 1 p.m. every weekend?

8. But even if we did sleep in every day, it's still none of your business.


9. And while we get that parents are really busy, so are other people!!!


Like us, for example!

10. You are not a higher power or a doctor, so please do not try to tell us how much time we have left to reproduce.

11. Telling us that we will change our minds is condescending.

Maybe we will, maybe we won't.

12. We definitely do not need your sympathy for our childless life.


13. And we know that if our parents hadn't procreated, we would not exist.

Still doesn't make us wanna carry a baby right now, OK?!

14. Just because we show motherly qualities does not mean we need to be a mother.

15. We are not choosing a career over a family. That's not a thing. We are just choosing to not have children.


16. And just because we don't have children, it doesn't mean we hate children or judge people who do. It just means we don't have children right now...and that's all you need to know.
