What are THE TOP TEN most stereotypically inane & unintelligent remarks you have heard about
childfree people from people who have children?
I would say selfishness is the number one unintelligent remark. I actually know of a couple of women who are quite angry at their choice to become mothers yet, they try their best to "recruit" others into becoming moms. They will tell women they should have at least one as if a child is a material possession, a trophy of sorts, all the while they hate the fact that they will likely never have their pre-child bodies, that they have no time for themselves and no money, etc.
In fact, both of these women stress over money and not being able to pick up and just go on a vacation or anywhere for that matter, and that they can't have some things and opportunities that many child free people have, etc. I don't want children and I am anything but a selfish person. However, I have noticed that the most common topics of discussion for these two revolve around themselves and their kids, even when others have absolutely NO interest and that is precisely what I would say is selfish.

Every day I see some of the most stupidest people having children. Usually, at least it seems to me, those with less intelligence keep having child after child, often when they cannot afford them. I sometimes think it would be better for all if there was an IQ requirement for having children. I...
