There were some very satisfying replies to the far-right guy who asked what women do if they don’t have kids
Some people have children, other people don’t have children, and anything more than that is likely to be none of your business, frankly.
Except some people just can’t get their heads around why women (and men) wouldn’t have kids. Like this guy, for instance, a far-right Canadian podcaster – got his own podcast, folks! – who said this.
Women get mostly infertile at 40, but live to be 80.
Without a family, what are you going to do with those 40 long long years?

And it’s fair to say he got lots of replies – 27,000 of them – of which these are our favourites.
Whatever the hell I want.

Claw wordlessly at the windows of the local soft play centre like the ghost of a Victorian orphan.

Learn Japanese, French, Spanish, and a couple other languages. Paint, sketch, write poetry, and novels, study higher mathematics, astronomy, and possibly string physics. Play with my dogs, work, manage my team at work, get promoted, become a partner, volunteer. Whatcha doin?

Spending every day thanking every god that ever existed that life is not as lonely and miserable as yours?

Well there’s gotta be at least 80 flavours of ice cream I haven’t tried yet so that’s gonna take some time

They lived the first 40 years just fine so they’ll probably continue in the same fashion. 🙄😂

of all the hot takes i have seen, "if you don't have kids you will have too much time to fulfill your dreams" is a new one

Seriously, and not all women want kids, and others if they end up not being able to give birth or just don't want to go through childbirth for whatever reason they can adopt and/or foster.
I love kids- but I hate when people act like it's our only purpose in life.

Play shuffleboard, eat chocolate, and say shocking things to people too dumb to breathe.

In addition to my ovaries and uterus, I have a BRAIN. So I might actually cure #cancer, unlike your false orange God who promised to do so, but in reality, hasn’t done a damn thing except slash biomedical research funding. https://t.co/fN19XWqKA1

1) Family is not just kids. Brothers, sisters, in-laws, cousins. Childless people are not without a family.
2) Have you heard of friends?
3) In answer to your question: literally anything. Think of literally anything, and that's what a woman could be doing for 40 years.
