I have an increasingly intense urge to nut in a female member of our species.

to elaborate on adopting, I don't personally feel like anyone should have children. Most people have children because they think that it would be fun to have children, they think that it would give meaning to their lives to have these children. But what about the children. The children didn't have the decision to be brought into this world for the amusement of their parents, to simply play a part in the lives of their parents. I think that it is irresponsible to have a child at all when there are so many children with no home, homeless children or starving children in Africa. Why not adopt a starving child in Africa if you want to have a child so much. It is irresponsible to have children of your own if you do not leave these children with enough inheritance to never have to work a day in their lives. Most people are shackled to the ties of wage slavery their entire lives. If you cannot create financial independence for your offspring, you are setting them up for a probable life of wage slavery as well. So by having a child, you are having a slave. You are simply bringing a slave into this world to be used an manipulated by those who are financially independent, by those who do not have to be slaves. as for why I do not want a girl or SO, I don't care about having sex or having children. Maybe I would change my mind if I met the right person, the idea of companionship is appealing but then again I am generally a lone wolf anyway, not just talking about romance, I like being alone.

Depends. If GME moons, 7 kids, 3 boys and girls and last one can be either. If not and I have to do regular family planning, probably 2-3.

Anywhere from 2-4 ideally. I want at least one to be a boy who I desperately hope will play football. My dad says training me and watching me play was one of his favorite parts of raising me, and I loved playing, so I'd want him to as well. Not required obviously and would never force him, just would make me insanely happy and absolutely fucking gassed up when it comes time for those Friday Night Lights games.

Want at least one girl too. Idk why but I feel like I'd be a good dad to her. Not sure why, but always felt this way.

I honestly think about this a lot and really need to get my shit together. The ride of parenting seems fun and littered with mistakes of just trying to be the best mom/dad you can be, and it is absolutely something I want to do.

I feel somewhat the same about football. It would be nice to have a son that played - I wish I played in college. My dad and grandfather both played football in college.

I wish I played on college too. My dad was D1 back in the day, dude was a fuckin tank. I was recruited at a some D3 schools and a couple D2s but when I got into my top school, I kinda backed out because I was worried I couldn't handle the workload. I was also D-Line and lost a lot of weight after my senior season and didn't want to regain it. Big mistake in hindsight, shoulda sent it. It is such a fun sport to play. A lot of my closest friends are guys I played with in high school. I'd love to be in the dad-shoes for my kid.

Ideally two (boy+girl) but wouldn't mind a third if it happened a little later on. Just started trying so I'll update y'all in nine months.

1) As many as possible to contribute to climate change and piss off the libs

2) Don't care so long that none of them is a lib. Though males eat more meat so that counts.

You are actually missing the point here. The ''psychologist'' that recommended the parents to to raise the kid as a girl is John Money, who is.... extremely famous for coming up with the idea that gender and sex are not the same thing. Basically, the originator of the ''trans-revolution'' sweeping the US.

Basically a criminal that deserved to be locked up for the rest of his life.

You sound like a POS - this is not funny.

For not wanting a kid with a severe mental illness that makes them 10x more likely to commit suicide, which has been mainlined by the liberal culture of the US into a social contagion that's causing perfectly healthy children to sterilize themselves (in some cases without parental consent) I am a POS? Well if the shoe fits, I guess I'm happy to be a piece of shit. I'd rather have decedents on my family tree, not trannies.

You're batshit crazy dude.

That's such a strange thing to fear unless you expect your daughter's favorite pastime to be wandering into alleys at night or doing heroin/fentanyl.

I’m a fun guy. Obviously I love the game of basketball. I mean there’s more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself. I'm not just gonna give you a whole spill... I mean, I don't even know where you're sitting at

2 kids, ideally one girl and one boy but I wouldn't ever be upset about other permutations. I have a feeling I'll end up with either 1 girl 1 boy or 2 girls. Not sure why, but I'll see in a few years

The thought of kids are scary. Don't know if I want them.

Jun 6, 2021 - 3:28pm

Not sure I want kids. I will no doubt have pressure from family but frankly I don't want to spend my young adult life (30s-40s) putting aside the things I enjoy to raise a kid. Maybe that will change, I'm still young so it could.

I'm just finally starting to feel good about where things are headed in my life and the thought of having a kid is not appealing at all right now.
