    Honestly the concept of not having/wanting/be able to have kids being unnatural is so foreign to me and yet so many people seem to live by it. Who decided that the purpose of every single one of us human beings is reproducing and keeping the species alive? This applies for a person not looking for a partner, couples not wanting to have kids and obviously gay couples.

    I might be wrong so enlighten me.

    I don't think this outright applies to same-sex couples, as a general point? Many do have children, or choose to adopt

    I wouldn't say it's unnatural to not want children though, some people just aren't in the position to have them, or have valid reasons for not wanting to.

    Yeah sorry for same-sex couple I meant like conceive children you know? Because many people use the argument that being gay is “against nature” because it is impossible to conceive a child. And like what if not all of us are meant to procreate? Why is it unnatural then? Even some animal species show gay tendencies!

    Ah I'm with you now - I definitely agree with you, that not everyone should be expected to have children, and that not wanting to shouldn't be classed as unnatural. Especially as it wouldn't be a particularly good environment for a child, to be raised in a family that didn't want kids, so it's not even like there would be a benefit to enforcing it on people.
