Quote of the Day: Cameron Diaz on Her Non-Motherly Instinct

"I think women are afraid to say that they don't want children because they're going to get shunned. But I think that's changing too now. I have more girlfriends who don't have kids than those that do. And honestly? We don't need any more kids. We have plenty of people on this planet."

-- Cameron Diaz, in the new issue of Cosmopolitan, on not giving in to the social pressure to have kids

 

I think this is a really interesting topic. I have some friends who don't want kids either. They like other people's children, but are more than happy to say goodbye at the end of the day.

Should they feel guilty about this? Must women feel like it's their job to procreate?
