People are flocking to social media in support after a woman revealed what she says to anyone who questions why she doesn't have children.
We may live in the 21st century where AI technology is outsmarting humans, but sadly, many things are still taking a while to catch up, such as some people questioning women about why they don't have children.
Thankfully, a TikToker has come up with the perfect response to shut it the hell down. Prepare to shout 'Yas Queen':
TikToker Gvizzle's video responds to another user named Maelen who asks: "If you are 40s and up, so 40s, 50s, 60s even more than that, if you are forties and up and a woman or even a woman with a partner, who has gone their entire life childless (on purpose) please tell me what your life is like now."
Explaining she's been told 'multiple times' she will end up 'jealous' of her friends who have kids and feel like she's lost out 'on something' and be 'sad,' Maelen appeals to other women for advice.
She says: "I need to know from someone who I envision myself being later on in life [...] who is either in their forties or beyond [...] that you are either happy with your life or give me the cold hard truth [...] I wanna know do you feel like you lost out or do you feel like you're confident and happy with your life?"
"People should question why they want children just as much as people who don't wanna have children question it and think about it because not everybody should be a parent," Gvizzle says. "No one plans to be a s****y parent but there's a f**k ton of s****y parents out there."
The TikToker resolves: "People fail to consider that other people want different things for their lives than they want for themselves. I, for one, do not understand how someone can live in a house without a dog.
"To me, a house without a dog is an empty home, other people feel that way about children, both those feelings are valid. But they also mean I don't get to tell you to get a dog, you don't get to tell me to have children.
"I have not regretted in 48 years, for a heartbeat, not having children, however, if the day should ever come that I do regret it, I would rather spend my next thirty five, forty years regretting not having kids than have spent the last 20 years and the next 40 regretting having had them. You do not miss that which you do not want."
Viewers have flooded to Gvizzle's post in praise of her explanation.
One wrote: "SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK."
"It amazes me how many people will call you selfish for *not* wanting something," another commented.
A third resolved: "PREACH."
