ecto_gammat: ([gits] ensnare the violent)
(I haven't written a real entry in a while, so, dear F-List, you're in for a doozy)
I'll say this now, out loud (well, written down), for the first time:

I. DO NOT. WANT CHILDREN.

I do not want to reproduce. I do not want to adopt. I do not want to foster. I do not want anything to do with children of my own.

Oh hell yeah, I'll be the most awesome Auntie out there. I want to be the one that they can feel that they can call if they get too drunk at a party and do the responsible thing to not drive home (because, yes, that will happen). I'll let them sleep it off on my couch or drop them off home. I'll listen, I might babysit, I might even spoil them rotten.

But I know that I have no maternal instincts. I don't know how to conduct myself around kids. I was the youngest in my family for thirteen years, before my little cousin came along. She was the youngest in the family for almost as long, until my other little cousins were born. I adore them all, but I rarely see two of them. And even when I do, I have no idea what to do. I've got no maternal instincts.

And to be honest, for the longest time, reproduction hasn't been in my plans. I remember when I was 5, after seeing a very pregnant woman in the grocery store (she could have given birth right there in the lobster tank, she was that ready to go), and me, just having learned "where babies come from", declaring that I didn't want a baby. If I had a baby, it would be cut out of my tummy (for my limited vocabulary couldn't handle cesarian section). My mom thought this was thoroughly amusing, and had me tell my dad. They both got a good laugh out of it, apparently.

I'm preparing myself for the onslaught of Bingoing that is sure to come my way. I'm keeping a running Bingo card on my computer (along with a PUG Bingo, but that's another story =P) Under the cut are some of the typical Bingos. I've got answers to many of them, but one bothers me the most. See if you can guess which.

B-I-N-G-O )

How is my not wanting kids selfish? Explain that to me, because I don't get it. And why do people get so offended when I mention that I don't want kids? It's not a personal attack on you, so don't attack my choice.
