I'm not dead.

Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?


Yes and Yes.

Re: kids - I think it's fucking ridiculous. There are enough people who want to shoot out tons and tons of kids. They'll keep the species going, don't you worry. Live and let live. If the Duggars want to have 60 kids, congratulate and be happy for them. If someone wants to have a tubal at 18, congratulate and be happy for them. Christ.

Same goes for relationships. Some people want one mate, some want ten, some want none. Why does everyone always have to get up in everyone else's business.

On a side note, if you are my flickr friend I posted a bunch of crap recently.

I certainly don't want Society to dictate me what to do with my life but I don't really agree with the fact that retarded pikeys should be allowed to spawn 60 kids as I seriously doubt they'd have to ability to raise reasonably balanced/healthy/sane human beings ^^;; Remember, those kids would eventually grow up and get the right to vote, maybe... :{

Yessss... I am perfectly fine being alone. I enjoy relationships but if it was more financially feasible, I would live alone. And I never want kids. I just want to be the crazy cat lady.

My "mother n law" is always on my case about grandkids. We're not even married yet! I keep telling her I'm never having kids and she gets all offended. Sorrrryyy lady, not happening, I'm trying to figure out if I can lie and tell her I'm infertile and her constant pressuring makes me feel bad. lol.

I hate going to visit families for the holidays, holidays are a personal thing for me, I would rather spend THanksgiving and Christmas alone and have as pecial night with my boyfriend than go endulge in some crap with some people I barely know or care to know.

Both my girlfriend and I agree we don't want kids. We don't want the added burden of bringing them up and additionally, I don't really want them to grow up in modern day Britain.

For example, in the school I work in nearly every kid is a chav. I wouldn't want to subject anyone to five years of that and I would be certainly mortified if my offspring were to become a chav.

Being from the states, I've never heard the term "chav" before, so I just looked it up on Urban Dictionary...and that sounds godawful. I am so sorry you are surrounded by children like that on a daily basis. D:

OP: Totally agree with you 100%.
