My husband and I choose to be childless in Seattle, writes editorial columnist Sharon Pian Chan
My husband and I just ended our debate about having children. To breed or not to breed, this was the question...
We have decided we have other things to give to the world. We wont be having kids. We choose to be childless in Seattle. ...
Feminism empowered women to talk about motherhood as a pursuit that deserves as much attention as mens work. In the past 20 years, women have bravely spoken about struggles to conceive, which helped educate a generation about fertility. But society rarely hears from women who decide not to have kids.
Do you have children? My friends standard answer is, No, and its not for medical reasons. Im cribbing it.
Will I regret it?
Probably sometimes. Just like parents sometimes regret their choice.
Would I have to sacrifice my career goals if we had a child? Probably. Ive gone from believing I can do it all to believing that life is short. Saying no to some things allows me to say yes to others.
My husband could be the primary caregiver while I charge after my goals, but then he would have to say no to some of his goals.
Am I being selfish if I don't have children?
Im selfish for not committing to my hypothetical childs well-being. But I will have a lot more attention and money to shower on real-life nieces, nephews, mentees and philanthropic causes.
Also, not having a child is the most important thing I could do to reduce my carbon footprint, according to a 2009 study by Oregon State University statisticians. ...

I’ll bet the husband looks like the guy claiming to be a French model in the State Farm commercial. I’ll be he is equipped with hipster black frame glasses, a man purse, and sandals..
The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Pass this article on to all of your liberal friends!
Psst...sweetie....ten bucks says that your little fella is “out” within a month of your piece having been published.
Your point is spot-on. Also, "breeding" and "breeders" are derogatory words used by many homosexuals when discussing traditional marriage.
Well, if this tripe is the “other things” she has to give the world, then she should give the world the pleasure of her silence.
And *I'll* bet that,in his dreams,the husband looks like the creature in the middle.
This is really good news...
The fewer Leftards breeding the better...
Factor in abortion and homosexuality, and the Libs will make themselves extinct...
There is one more step but she's just too selfish to take it.
May Father Darwin smile down upon them.
If see really wants to reduce her carbon foot print she can stop exhaling carbon dioxide.
It leaves more room for us and our kids.
We will out breed them eventually. :D
When she is in the Nursing Home she will probably enjoy watching the others there being seen by their children, and she gets no company at all.
She can always leave everything to her cat.
What a sad pathetic being.
Although, I should prolly be happy she’s not breeding.
Thank you for not breeding. Now, do us a favor and urge all your fellow liberals to follow your example.
And I’ll get back to you on voluntary euthanasia so we can keep the Earth green and pristine. . .
