In our society, when you say you don’t want to have children, it’s as if you were committing the worst crime: people let out indignant exclamations, look at you with dread, shout things like: “BUT WHYIIIII???? » and try to reason with you. However, we do not see what it can do to others that YOU do not want to have children. After all, it’s nobody’s business but you. But it is a logic inaccessible to the members of the natalist sect who will always want explanations. So, in the camp of those who don’t want kids, you always have to explain yourself. Here are some excellent answers to nail the beak of the suckers who ask too many questions.
