Topic - Having kids - duty or hobby?

Ben Sharp - on 24 Oct 2012
On the Men/children thread, John Hat mentioned how people often critisise others' choice not to have kids. I've certainly noticed that some people feel it is almost a duty to have children but given the amount of parents who wouldn't be without their kids surely it's more of a hobby. Something which costs a lot of money (potentially for society as well as parents) but overall brings pleasure.

Someone's choice not to have kids isn't going to negatively affect the burgeoning world population so to look down on people for not investing in children seems counter-intuitive.
