I don't get the title versus the post <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br>
You want to punch her in the gob because she's a child or because she has children or made a remark about you hating children?

i made a comment about a cute video on youtube. she (and, admittedly, my brother) both said, "but, you hate children."<br><br>
"no, i don't hate children."<br><br>
"but, you don't want children."<br><br>
"what? that doesn't mean i hate them. in fact, they're really quite tasty."<br><br>
[sneer]<br><br>
my primary issue...? i shouldn't have to explain this to my FAMILY every fucking time i see them... it took years to get my mum to stop commenting about it, and now i have to tolerate this crap from my siblings' spouses?

I 100% feel your pain.<br><br>
And I even do like children. But not wanting any apparently makes you a hater. <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif">

it would be easier to be a hater. then, i could embrace the hateness, the hate-itude, the hate-ment. and, kick things.

Yep.<br><br>
Would it help if you sat her and your brother down, talked to them real slowly, and said you don't hate babies? Talk slow so they get it. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
ARGH.

one of my family members was fascinated with the vacuum cleaner as a toddler. minding him was a breeze... i'd pull the vacuum cleaner out, make sure all of the plug covers were thoroughly pushed in, and he'd entertain himself for hours.<br><br>
he'd walk around the house with it, making a "whooosh" sound. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
his mother was always astounded. no mess, no fuss.<br><br>
no duct tape required.

Why explain yet again?<br>
Next time just stare at them like they have two heads. Don't say anything- just use your best poker face and stare at them. <img alt="neutral.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/neutral.gif">

Tell them you also hate the teeny little shoes that go along with babies, and that if you ever, EVER have to see them squeal over that kind of crap, your head might explode.<br><br>
Fuck with them like that for a while. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Time to tune your SIL in. Tell her you long ago tired of explaining/defending your thoughts on children to family members and you don't want to start again.

We've gone over this before.<br><br>
What you say the next time someone brings up children is that you have tried unsuccessfully for years and because of fertility issues, you cannot have children. But, thank them for bringing up a painful subject.<br><br>
That <i>might</i> shut them up.

Things that I don't have or feel a need to posess, but don't hate:<br><br>
Snowmobiles<br>
An NBA franchise<br>
Foot powder<br>
Cats<br>
Long underwear<br>
love beads<br>
A linux box<br>
Old cars<br>
A rugby jersey<br><br>
Seems like a simple concept to me. Maybe they are simply obtuse.

Or you can say that you've already had 2 but they both died within their first year of a rare genetic disease.
