Josey Vogels doesn't want kids. She never has. She never will. When she explains this, she feels obligated to justify herself to the stupefied listener that "It's not that I don't like kids ... blah, blah, blah." But who is she kidding?"The truth is I'm not a big fan. Okay, I guess I like some kids, just like I like some people. But somehow, while it's okay to not go gaga over every person you meet, I feel obliged to at least pretend I like people's kids when I meet them. Even as they're drawing on my couch. Or getting their mother's attention by shoving a crayon up her nose while I'm trying to have an adult conversation with her."

With the world's population approaching on 8 billion, she doesn't think she's being anti-children, egocentric and selfish. And if she was, well, so are you. Here's why.
