Woman’s Facebook Post Perfectly Sums Up The Joy Childfree Life

The Motherhood Challenge on Facebook “challenges” mothers to post photos that make them feel proud to be a mother, and to tag other women they think are great mothers. However, not all women are thrilled by what some see as another attempt to put pressure on women to “be” a certain way. That’s why 32-year-old English comedian Ellie Taylor, who has no kids, replied with pictures of her napping with a wine bottle when she found herself tagged in this “challenge.”

“Non-Motherhood Challenge: I was nominated by myself to post five pictures that make me happy to be a non-mother,” Taylor wrote on Facebook, adding, “Such special memories.” What are your thoughts on the challenge?

It's bizarre how much hate a satirical post like this can get. (Seen several sites + comments where this has been reposted) And she probably just took pictures of her sleeping because a lot of mothers say they couldn't sleep much because the kids were up early/sick/.... People saying she is sad or she will regret this or be a bitter lonely woman in 20 years are sad themselves. I have a niece, I love her and I love spending time with her but I also love being able to bring her back to her parents after. That's enough for me and I don't want kids of my own. Everytime I tell someone I don't want kids, I get replies like: "OMG why wouldn't you want kids?", "You don't know what you're missing", "you'll change your mind!" How about people just accept other people's choices? Not everyone has the same lifegoals/dreams/wishes...

I can relate. But well, to a certain point, you stop caring about what others think. Just be yourself and be happy with your choice :)

What I find interesting is that gay marriage and homosexuality/lesbianism are now widely accepted (at least in the Western civilized world) but a woman not wanting to have children, that's still a cause for major interwebs uproar. I'm having the best time not having kids, I don't have to sacrifice myself for some selfish sucker, I don't add to overpopulation, and I have plenty of spare money. As for being alone in my old age? Tell that to all of my friends who have put their parents into an old folks' home.

Seriously. Ever since I was little, I knew I never wanted kids. It's my life and my decision, and the idiots who claim that without kids your life has no meaning can go to hell.

LOVE this! I would chose sleep over kids any damn day! I know people who only have kids to give their own lives meaning/purpose which to me, is far more sad than a woman knowing herself and knowing that's something she doesn't want or need to give her life meaning/purpose.
