    I don't necessarily "plan" to have kids, but I also realize plans can change.

    So, if I change my mind someday, here's what I "think" I would do.

    1. Will you adopt or have kids of your own? Why?
    Adopt, because I was adopted.

    2. What will you call them? Boy & girl names.
    Gender-neutral names, http://www.babynames1000.com/gender-neutral/

    3. What will they call you and your partner? Dad and Daddy? Dad A and Dad B?
    Probably dad and daddy, but I never gave that any thought so I don't know.

    4. If your kids suffer bullying in school, how will you handle the situation?
    Encourage them to take self-defense classes.

    5. What values will you teach them to become good human beings?
    Unconditional love, compassion, empathy, secular spirituality, and serenity.

    I feel like most people don't understand why adoption is so much better for the world than spitting out your own baby, either that or they don't care because they're too self-absorbed in wanting a mini version of themselves even though just because your child is related to you by blood doesn't mean they'll be anything like you.


    True. And it's a selfless act that actually helps society.
