Tell me the moment that made your uterus shrivel up and crawl away.
Mine are a series of little moments that add up. At first I didn’t really have an opinion either way because kids were a thing that happened when you’re an adult. But when I realized I didn’t have to have kids, the NOPE moments started bothering me more and more. Kids crying at the movies, parents trying to wrangle kids into their car or house, the screaming, etc. But I think the biggest moments actually involved kids I like (because I don’t hate kids, I just don’t want one attached to my life). My nephews are awesome, sweet, well behaved, loving kids and they are still such a handful. I don’t think I could deal with teaching someone how to chew their food or not to spit in other people’s faces or have to randomly interrupt conversations to make sure no one dies.
And on top of that, pregnancy sounds terrible. I made the mistake of taking an anatomy course that went over the reproductive system. Don’t get me wrong, biology is cool and it’s amazing that this happens, but I like the way my body works now and really don’t want a leech rewiring my blood vessels and making all sorts of changes!
*As an aside, not interested in your “NOPE, but…” or “NOPE, until…” moments. This thread is under the assumption that kids aren’t worth it, it’s not different when they’re your own, and it’ll take a cold day in hell to get us to pop out babies. The purpose of this thread is to share reasons to not have kids and our (often visceral) reactions to seeing a NOPE event, no need to bring up reasons to have them.
