Yeah, there are many levels of intelligence - emotional, physical, intuitive, social, and so on.

Honestly, it all comes down to this. If you want kids, great, nobody should give you **** about it. If you don't want kids, great, nobody should still give you **** about it. I'm finding that there are more people willing to tell a person who doesn't want kids that they're making a mistake than to tell a person who wants a kid that they need to think about it first.

Exactly.

And there's also a lot of people that think that just because you don't want kids, you must hate them or something. (We don't hate 'em - we just don't want to be around them forever.)

Spoiler for for your eyes only - and anyone else's, I don't care:
I'm just glad your mum's finally getting her head around this - if my super Christian bible-thumping mother can accept that her daughter and future son in law aren't going to be having any grandchildren for her, I'm pretty sure your uniquely intelligent, liberal mother can. Love her dearly.

It is pretty equal both ways in my experience. I'm sorry for you finding it more weighted on one side than the other but that's not a general thing. With more and more people being child-less/free they have been giving people that have kids/want them grief for some stupid reason. It's not even any of their business.

Also, I found the perfect pic for you Lady :P

I can totally see you doing this.

I nominate this thread for stupid thread of the millennium, and even if a stupider one spawns out of someones stupidity, this one still must remain as a stupid runner up.

Spanking Your Children = No. Physical harm to anyone will only foster deep resentment. There is no rebuttal on this so shut the **** up.

Having Kids = Whatever the **** you think you want to do with your selfish little life is up to you, but the simple fact remains that without reproduction the human race would no longer exist. So go ahead. Enjoy your meaningless existence.

Yeah, I'm still drunk from Tuesday.

Yeah no ****. BTW you don't need an education to have a high IQ. I know some really simple ****ers who have been going to school their whole life and they couldn't think their way out of a wet paper bag.

So choosing not to have a child means your life will be meaningless? Okay.

Actually, I really don't care one way or the other. That was me being ****ty from having a ****ty morning.

Things aren't looking any better so I should just stay out for a while.

Honestly If I wasn't spanked as a kid I would have been even worse off then the cretin I was to begin with.

I do not however believe that having a kid brings more meaning to your life. Perhaps it gives you more purpose, however that is also debatable. It certainly does bring you great responsibility, which some people are incapable of.
