16 Things Child-Free People Are Sick Of Hearing

Yes, I made the choice to not have children. No, you can't convince me otherwise.

1) You're going to have a hard time finding someone else who doesn't want children

And you're going to have a hard time finding someone to put up with that know-it-all attitude.

2) You have to grow up someday and settle down

Ummm.. NO I DON'T!

Ummm.. NO I DON'T!

3) But children enrich your life

So do my pets, traveling, money, beer... you get the idea

4) It's unnatural not to want kids; everyone wants a child

Society might think this, but society is wrong!

5) Isn't your life empty?

Yes, so empty, between my trips around the world, my awesome social life, and the fact I can have sex almost every night, it's really dull and awful.

6) If you don't have kids you're just being selfish

First of all, that shouldn't bother you. Second of all, I'm pretty sure not contributing to the population growth isn't a bad thing.

7) Don't you want to see a smaller version of you and spouse?

Not really, but if I did, there's always Photoshop.

8) You're going to turn into a crazy cat lady

Just cause I have 2 cats and no children, does not make me a crazy cat lady...

9) What's wrong with you?

Oh I'm sorry, I forgot we were back in high school where being different was frowned upon.

10) What will you do when you're old?

Party! What will you do when your kids move far away?

11) But you'd be such a great parent

Via gifmovie.tumblr.com

No, I wouldn't, but you'd be a great astronaut, so why don't you go do that instead of trying to make decisions for me!

12) You'd better give your spouse a child before they leave you for someone who will

What kind of statement is this? Did it ever occur to you that my spouse and I could feel the same way???

13) You'll never know what love really is

Via xqueenxelsa.tumblr.com

I wasn't aware I needed a child to know what love is, but if it means giving up everything I love now, then I don't want to know!

14) Be careful, accidents happen

Yes, cause without you telling me to be careful I never would have been! And while accidents can happen, so can abortions.

15) You're going to regret it

Via yourreactiongifs.tumblr.com

Man, I sure do wish I had these powers to see into the future! Also, how do you know I wouldn't regret having kids?!

But, by far the most annoying thing we hear on a regular basis is...

16) You'll change your mind when you're older

Excuse me? What makes you think you won't change your mind about having kids?

Well??
