Yeah. I never will. I'm 36 now, have stated this since I was maybe 5 or younger... and I WILL NEVER CHANGE MY MIND.
You hear that, stupid doctors? Gyns? General populace? I never, ever will. NO I will not want them when I'm 50. When I reach 50, all you'll say is, 'Oh, I know you will when you're 60.' I SEE YOUR GAME. I want my tubes tied - and goddamn it, I will get this procedure done someday. I don't care if I'm too old for kids when I finally get the right to have it done, because make no mistakes, it's my @#$%ing right as it's MY body, NOT yours - I'll do it.
Right now I'm writing an essay/documentary of sorts, to keep for the rest of my life, to be published after my death by my husband or remaining family, that proves I never wanted them right up until I died. That's the only way these assholes will ever believe me, and it's sick that it's what I have to do. I feel the need to - they're so @##$%ing smug about it, they KNOW MY MIND, you see, and they're 100% wrong. They couldn't be more wrong. I dislike children, and not only that, I have mental/physical ailments I shouldn't pass down to anyone else! So not only do I not WANT kids, if you step back and look at all the other reasons, I SHOULDN'T. And all these assholes just parade around squawking, 'you'll want them, you'll want them'.
I will not.
By the way, I love responding back to these folks by asking either what religion they are or what political affiliation. If they say "Christian", I'll smile benignly and tell them in my most saccharine tones, "Well, you'll want to convert to Wicca some day."
