Artist Perfectly Illustrates How Not All Women Want Kids And Why It's Not A Bad Thing

by Ayoub Mask

South Dakota based illustrator, Kate McDonough has never wanted to have kids, and society seems to have a huge problem with that.

Kate loves drawing comics, portraits, and various other fun things. 

“Humor has always been at the root of most of my work, it’s how I cope with the anxiety and health issues I’ve experienced over time,” she told Bored Panda.

McDonough expresses herself best through art, which is why she decided to voice her struggles and thoroughly explain her decision not to have children via a comic. The cartoonist managed to perfectly illustrate what a lot of women have been struggling to express, and hopefully, she will manage to change some minds. 

The choice to be child-free should be respected. People want different things in life, and that's perfectly fine.
