• It’s unhealthy to want this

    But I already want to have kids.
    I’m 21, I have my whole life ahead of me,
    I know that feminism is about getting a good career, and getting married when you want to,
    but I want to get married now,
    I want to have children NOW,
    It’s bad, it’s way too bad.

    But I can’t help it.
    I won’t do anything stupid to my partner,
    but sometimes I hope to get pregnant.
    I don’t know why, but sometimes instead when I pee on a stick,
    I hope it turns positive.
    Even though I could never be…
    and it would fuck up my whole life,
    that’s sad right?

      It’s not sad, no. But there is plenty of time look forward to it in the future.

      No it’s not sad, but you have so much time for that all to come.

      If that’s sad, I must be even sadder. I’m 19 and already feel like I’m on a ticking clock. Having kids means everything to me, and I feel like I need to start NOW. Even though I’m in the middle of a degree and in the early stages of a relationship, I honestly sometimes hope that I get pregnant. You’re not alone in feeling bad about it

      To me, feminism is making your own decisions, believing in them, and standing by them. Feminism is about being true to yourself, and not letting anyone (man or woman) dictate your decisions. If you want to have a baby, I think your nurturing instincts are stronger than others. You’re not wrong for wanting to have children early. Just like those who chose not to have children at all, aren’t wrong either. Some woman wait until the “perfect” age, and make horrible mothers. Only you know what’s right for you.
