No Babies by anastasia-black No Babies by anastasia-black

Fave if you use please!

FAQ:

Why don't you want to have kids?
I suffer from Tokophobia (An exaggerated or irrational fear of childbirth), I don't like babies and I'm not interested in raising a child.

What if you decide to raise a child when you grow up?
I don't necessarily have to give birth. If I ever change my mind about raising a kid, I'll adopt. There are thousands of kids who don't have a family.

But what if you get pregnant accidentally?
One word should be enough to answer this: Abortion.

Why do you hate kids?
If they do something bad, you're automatically blamed for not being able to take care of them properly.
They keep asking ridiculous questions and talk too much.
Most kids try to annoy you on purpose because they like it when you get angry.
You can never shout at them because they cry when you do that and since all grown ups think they're little angels, they get angry at you.
They touch everything when you allow them to come into your room.
Everything is revolved around them. They are getting too much attention.

Everyone is afraid of giving birth. You'll get over it.
As I said before, I suffer from Tokophobia. Being afraid of something and having a phobia are two different things. Also even if I do get over it, that doesn't change the fact that I don't want any kids.

Your reasons are not valid.
I shouldn't need a "valid" reason to be able to decide not to have any kids. "Because I don't want to" is good enough. :/

Child birth is necessary for humans to continue to exist.
It's true that long long ago humans wanted to increase their population so child birth was encouraged, but currently the world is already overpopulated and we do not need any more new born babies. Actually right now it's time to discourage people from having kids.

What's wrong with you? Everyone wants to have kids!
So far I've met many people who thought I was weird for not wanting any kids. Probably %95 of the females' dream is to get married and have kids but the last thing I want is to end up having to live that typical life everyone dreams of. Unlike most people I am not willing to spend 20 years of my time looking after some kid. I'd rather focus on having a successful career as I am going to be spending who knows how many more years on my education. I am not willing to waste the time and money spent on it. (I often feel sorry for my mom who has a degree in Economics but stopped working shortly after she gave birth to me. Obviously it was her own choice but what's the point of going to university if you're just going to end up as a housewife?)

Who's going to look after you when you're old?
This is got to be the most annoying question ever. I get this a lot from my relatives but I'm not sure if they themselves understand what they're talking about. Let me get this straight. I am not going to have children just so that they can take care of me afterwards. That's just stupid. If this is the reason why you had your children you are an idiot. Having children is a serious decision and shouldn't be taken this lightly.

When I was your age...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, you also did not want any kids, I know. It's shocking how much some of you like sharing your own life experiences but I'd be really happy if people stopped comparing me to themselves. Everyone is different and just because you ended up with kids doesn't necessarily mean the same thing will happen to me.

You're just a teenager, you don't know anything. I know that you'll change your mind because I'm older than you.
Come up with a better argument.

EDIT: STUFF TO WATCH:

Kids by George Carlin: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIXlwY…

UPDATE: 09/10/2015

It's been more than 4 years since I made this stamp as a 16 year old and I thought an update was long due. In case anyone's wondering I'm still child-free by choice and have no intention to have kids. Quite a few of you might argue that 20 is still too young to make a decision, but considering the fact that I decided against having kids when I was 7 and never been interested in having a family, I'm fairly confident that I will remain child-free in the future. 

Thank you to those who have favourited and commented on my stamp. It's inspiring to see loads of people who agree that being child-free is a valid lifestyle choice!

I relate to this so much!!! Becoming pregnant is my biggest fear, and I hate the feeling of being pressured to go through a whole life of being a slave to my child.

THANK YOU for making this! To me, it feels really sexist to say that all women SHOULD have kids!
My Mum always says, "when you get older, you might change your mind", NO! When I mean it, I MEAN IT! I have my own valid reason and that is simply because I don't want my only life to be held back by taking care of another human. Don't get me wrong, I love babies and little children, but I simply just don't want to be anchored from beneficial things that I would rather do.
When I say I'll never have sex, guess what? Mum says the same thing! The reason I have for that is because I just don't like it and I'm afraid of getting penetrated anywhere(I even feel really uncomfortable when I wipe myself after a No.1)...

While I do think babies are very cute, I do not want any of my own when because I fear they will be born with disabilities and I cannot have that in my life because they will give me a hard time

I told one of my teachers I didn't want kids cause she was talking about her children to me, and she told me "Oh, you'll want kids later. You'll change your mind." I got so f*cking annoyed.

Yeah I mean it's a phobia and your faq answers why you feel this way. I used to be scared too because I'm disabled and in the back of my mind I think I knew I wasn't able to have kids. I used to cry when I'd hear YouTubers talk about housewives but I don't feel bad anymore. People who say everyone should have kids are assuming everyone is the same and we're not. I won't have kids because I can't, even if I wanted to...

I don't look forward to having kids, or MARRIAGE even, 'cause

1 - If I get married, I will have to SHARE MY LIFE with whom I'm married to, and I'd rather live a private life, and not just that, I would have to sell most of my stuff just to live with them.

2 - If I ever have kids, than that would basically just restrict me from going out and partying and having fun, and it would basically be me trading my whole life for frickin' children instead.. not really worth it.

3 - Once I have children, I'd have to deal with being woken up at 3 in the morning ready to strangle 'em every night, and I'd have to baby proof everything (such as put all my decorations away) once they go through their touchy-touchy faze, along with tryna' eat, and destroy everything too.

4 - I heard children can also be such brats once they are around 7 years old. They basically will start to ask for everything in the toy department, and I would have to spend every single dollar on them, rather than myself, and the things I want, such as knick-knacks, comfy furniture, ya'know, stuff like that.

wow, i mean this can work for some people but you are never going to be the same you were when you were young and not want kids. Most experience things and then change their mind....

Ands my friend suffers from that phobia of childbirth, but for her it's only the childbirth part because most of the girls in her family almost died at childbirth. But she still wan'ts kids.... just doesn't want to be the one to give birth to them. And I said "theres always adoption"

Sometimes I argue with my mother about making some chores at home. I ask her why do I have to do it all by myself, and she says "Someday you'll have to do this in your house for your children!"
And I'm all like "mmmkay...", I'm still afraid to tell her that I don't want fucking kids. I want a loving boyfriend/husband, and if he doesn't want to be with me because of that, he doesn't really love me.

this stamp explains everything i want to say!!

i almost don't have time now and i think that i won't in the future. DUDE SERIOUSLY I'M REALLY TIRED OF THIS.

I'm sorry but i think i missed the rule which said that women/girls must marry and have children. It's not the only thing in the world.
I sometimes tell people "why should i? it is not obligatory". Why can't they just MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!!!?!?!?!FKDSJAFLASJSDLVSDMF GOSH It's just that i never felt anything for any kid... i have many feelings  for animals xP. I don't get so "aww look at that feeeeeeiiiiiiizzzzz" when a baby is there. I think that they are all the same :B. But when i see an animal "AWWWW LOOK AT THHHAAAAAT CUTIEEE".

Somebody once wrote these things, and now I'm answering them:

"If you don't want to have kids, you hate kids."
Because if I don't buy lettuce, I automatically hate all vegetables.

"You'll change your mind"
I've kept my decision for eight years. What makes you think I'm going to change?

"Only when you have kids you find out true love"
Yup, because there are no neglected children around or true love between a childfree married couple.

"Instead of taking care of a pet, go have a child!"
Who gives you right to tell me what to do? Are you going to help me take care of the child once it's born? And who says I can't love a pet like I'd love a child? (speceism?)

"But who's gonna take care of you when you're older?"
My grandmother has ten children and only a few of them are helping her now. Who's gonna guarantee a child will look after me later?

"EGOISTIC!"
Better than leaving another child to rot in this horrible world, thank you very much.

"Having children was the best decision of my life."
Oh, really? Tell me more about how we're the same person with the same values and thoughts.

"You're gonna regret it later!"
And how does this concern you? Better regret not having a child than regret having one, right?

"You're only a true woman when you become a mother!"
"n., pl. wom•en (ˈwɪm ɪn) 
adj. n.
1. an adult female person" Hmm I don't see 'children' or 'mother' anywhere.

"Your husband's gonna want to have kids and is gonna find another woman to do it for you"
If my 'husband' was only with me for having children, he never loved me and is not truly my husband.

Old Comment but he's my response to those questions


"If you don't want to have kids, you hate kids."
And?

"You'll change your mind"
Maybe you will too

"Only when you have kids you find out true love"
How does creating a child equal love?

"Instead of taking care of a pet, go have a child!"
A Pet doesn't cost as much

"But who's gonna take care of you when you're older?"
Easy, My Soulmate

"Having children was the best decision of my life."
Really?, Throwing my money away just to have a children to the best decision in my life?

"You're gonna regret it later!"
Mhm, Sure

"You're only a true woman when you become a mother!"
No, Being a Mother doesn't make you a "True Women"

ooc. THANK YOU THIS DESCRIBES ME PERFECTLY

my sister wants to have a family, she's only 11 so i don't believe she should even be considering that decision, i firmly said i never will fucking have any kids. but, my family says, i'll change my mind when i'm older.

i was tempted to scream "COME UP WITH A BETTER ARGUMENT, JEEZ... I'M FUCKING DONE HEARING THAT!" 

that is like... the utmost ridiculous, idiotic argument i've heard. I have a fear of childbirth too! I never told my family about it because they'll just think it's not fucking real. i'm currently uninterested in a relationship, having kids, and i'm 16. 

my other reasons to refusing to have kids: i do not pay attention, i tend to ignore kids when they walk up to me, i want to have MY OWN LIFE, and i don't want to end up dying during childbirth

yay, i got to rant, i'll shut up now

My mom's always like "Oh you'll have kids, you'll change your mind when you get older, you aren't asexual, you just aren't old enough to like boys." and every time I wish I could get some sort of disease that just destroys my ovaries, so there isn't even a chance (except that would hurt so not really). It's like, do you want me to go through terrible pain just so I could ruin my life spending all my hard-earned cash on some little brat who will most likely be miserable? Yeah, no. I ain't doing none of that. I hate kids, what makes you think I'll start liking them when I get older? AY YO RUBY CHILL (F2u icon)
