How can people not like children? This is seriously distressing to me. I can comprehend not liking being around children too much. Their energy is so different than an adult's that I can make some sense of that. But flat-out hating all children? I don't get it. It seems that you'd have to be some sort of monster, or just incredibly stupid.

Like I said, I really do understand (even if I don't identify) that some people are not comfortable around children or dislike certain aspects of their natures. But it makes me unbelievably sad that anyone would talk about them as through they are some sort of plague.
