I voted other. 

I'm interested in all the steps leading up to having kids, minus the whole fertilization part.

I'd like kids, but not yet...Probably mid-30s would be good.

Not interested in any virgin births?

That is the absolute worst-case scenario.

So 4 people have voted that they don't want kids.  Any reasons why?  (Other than "I like sex, but not babies")

Isn't that, in essence, the only possible reason?

I suppose there could be the 'I don't like sex or babies' crowd.

Yeah, but that's about as representative a segment as the "my genitals were tragically removed in a fire" crowd.

This poll excludes people who already have kids unless they choose "other."
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.
