Hi, everyone! I'm magyargirl3
, and I'm glad to have found a place like this for Christians who don't want children.
I'm 19 and going to a Christian (PCUSA) college. Amazingly, my classmates couldn't care less about my not having kids (well, there are a few notable exceptions, but they're mostly freshmen, and, as such, don't know me really well). However, two of my professors scoff at it. Both are men, but it would be just as infuriating to have female profs say it. What's even more infuriating? One of said profs has never been married or had children, yet he acts as if it's inevitable that I'll want babies. Newsflash, buddy: I had that baby craze when I was 16...and I didn't go out and get pregnant, and I got over it.
I go to an area Lutheran (ELCA) church with one of the Theater profs and his family - a wife and almost - two - year - old daughter. Though I've kinda "adopted" his daughter as my little sister and I love the girl to death, I am so glad I don't have to take her home with me. I would go batshit if I had to be around her most of the day - she's at that age where you really can't talk to her or reason with her, so it's quite frustrating (The prof and his wife know about my childfreedom and are okay with it).
So, how about all of you? Did you go/Are you going to a Christian college? Were you harrassed or did other people just not care?
P. S. I need some advice. Do any of you women know of any good Bible study material or devotional material directed at college - age women? I haven't really found anything that's not for teens or for women my mom's age. Any kind of points in the right direction would be awesome.
