On Family 👨👩👦
I have no obligation to them. They chose to put me here, against my will. What right do they have to demand anything?
I used to think about being a parent. I'd adopt from foster care. I like the idea of being able to add some sunshine to this cruel world. That's a sense of power. Also it would be nice to not have to deal with a baby but still have a kid. People who adopt want a baby because they want as much of the biological experience as possible, and adoption is their second choice. It's also nice because you can lie to them as they grow up and get to decide when they have a right to the truth.
I would be a good aunt. I might be a good weekend dad. Something part-time.
