    and orphans as well.

    Not enough is being done for the men that have helped keep the planets population from overwhelming growth proportions.
    I think they deserve some kind of honour for what they are NOT doing

    On behalf of my OH, I thank you.

    He is 68 and has no children. Nor do I for that matter so we have both done our bit for not overpopulating the country.

    Happy fathers day to all of those people out there who invited your dad's round for dinner before remembering that you can't cook.

    The next set of politicians will be chosen by an electorate, containing a disproportionate number of people from families which believe in having lots of children. Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.

    Perhaps instead of one person one vote, each person should get 2/(N+1) of a vote ; where N is how many siblings they have who are registered to vote.

    What has that got to do with a thread celebrating men that have had the good sense to not father any children?

    It's a pretty crappy reason to have children though.

    You either want them or you don't, nothing wrong with either option.

    True - but you can't use the "well done for stopping overpopulation" bul$hit, since it isn't true unless you live the under-developed world.

    By not having kids, you're just having a life with fewer responsibilities, simple as that.

    Me and OH don't have children mainly because we think it is wrong to bring yet more people into an already overpopulated world.

    I gave him a Fathers Day card from our dogs yesterday along with a small present. He was well happy.

    Dogs are much nicer than children and far less hassle

    I feel a bit miffed now, neither of my cats got me a fathers day card. They said they don't believe in the over commercialisation of public holidays and their love should be all I need. At least I think that's what they were saying, they might just have been asking for dinner.
