Yes. I love children! They are the future, and hope.

My boyfriend doesn't want them though - but his parents abandoned him when he was a baby so I don't know if that affects his perspective?

I just want to see happy children, it doesn't even have to be my own. I'd happily foster.

Yes I do want them. I've wanted kids for most of my life.

No, I won't be having any children.

Absolutely not. Though SA has little to do with it -- I think I wouldn't want them even if I didn't have SA to deal with. For one thing I'm way too selfish to spend a huge portion of my money and time raising kids. For another thing, I hate kids. Plus I think I'd make a terrible parent.

I want children but as much as it pains me to admit, it most likely will never happen. If I can't even start a discussion with a woman, how am I supposed to impregnate one???

yes I want, don't know if I'll accomplish it though , probably not anytime soon

at least one but ideally 2 or 3

I've tried many times to make them on my own but it just doesn't seem to work .

Nobody, I'm nobody.

That everyone gets fully functioning genitalia is as irresponsible as giving everyone a loaded gun, I'll only take mine out occasionally to the firing range shoot off a few rounds, I have a concealed carry permit but I'll only use it in a live situation as a last resort.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
- Macbeth

Tried that too. Still no success.

No and no. Nothing to do with anxiety, I just don't like them and I do like all the free time and extra money not having them gives me

Biggest no you could physically utter. I'd rather soon have my tubes tied than ever having biological children.

I have thought it'd be nice to adopt instead, but I'd want to do it as a single mother (and because I'll have to anyway, due to most likely remaining without a partner) but the adoption system seems to make that virtually impossible. And even then, I'd just be too terrible of a parent and risk passing on my SA or depression indirectly.



"So many resources keep me alive
Yet I don't even step outside
So many sacrifices keep me alive
Yet I don't even bother to survive."

Don't push your values
Push your values
Onto the crowd."

I change my mind a lot. Right now, I don’t want any. A few months ago, I did.

I like children but I am not willing to go through the pregnancy and birth. I have worked with children so I hope I can make a positive contribution that way.

It’s a shame that in modern society there are many who have misconceptions about a woman just because she doesn’t want children of her own.

Yes, having a child is one of life's greatest pleasures.

"One thing he (Trump) does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him."- Bill Clinton

Without question the worst president we’ve ever had- Harry Reid on trump.

No question, Trump is racist.- America's heroine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

All roads with you lead to Putin.- Pelosi to trump on his treason

I'd love for you to try and explain what you mean by this?
