I came across a post on reddit yesterday that made me ponder. It is strange how much of our life decisions are still determined by innate, biological drives. The nature v. nurture debate is gripping specifically in reference to having children. Mating was made pleasurable to further the human species. We've gotten advanced enough to form intricate societies with critical thinking and dependency on entertainment over other biological needs such as the search for food and shelter. But the motivation ingrained in our organic history to have children still pushes people who have no business raising a child to create them. Despite the lack of means, know-how, or emotional intelligence to raise a fully-fledged human, people have babies because biology says to. And despite my knowing it's not a good idea for me at this point in time, that desire still very much moves me and makes me question my own experience.

We are not as advanced as we think we are.

I must be very advanced. I'm pretty good at denying the sex. Or at least not seeking it.

It's less the search for sex for me, and more the desire to care for a baby. A little pudgy thing that is completely helpless. When I hear a crying baby it feels like my ovaries pull me that direction to attempt to help it.

Hormone drives are weird af.
