The Real Reason Why Society Hates You If You Don’t Have Kids
Tracy Moore

I’m the only one around me who I know have decided not to have biological kids. Coming from an African society where I’m likely to be ‘exorcised' for such an outrageous decision (why else would a presumably fertile woman not want to give birth if not because of demonic possession?), it’s something I’ll have to address at every social gathering once I’m older and not pregnant. That I want to exclusively adopt vulnerable orphans instead doesn’t count where I come from. “You’re crazy!” They insist.
