12-year-old girl: I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society: You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.

Society: How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.

Society: Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
