“I’m So Sick Of Going Places, And Kids Are Just Everywhere, Screaming”: Woman Who “Hates” Kids Calls For Child-Free Neighborhoods

It’s no big secret that every human is entitled to hold their own opinions, even if they’re highly controversial. 

One of the topics that constantly seems to be making the internet rounds is children – specifically, people calling on businesses to stop bending over backward for parents and to start offering a bunch of random services, such as flights, pools, cinema screenings, amusement parks, high-end restaurants, etc., as child-free ones. 

Well, the star of today’s article is no exception. Kitch Catterall, who goes by the name Baby Soja online, recently took to TikTok to propose the development of adult-only neighborhoods.

The Melbourne woman recorded a video of herself at the gym’s parking lot, venting about “screaming” children as she finally reached her boiling point. Many netizens sided with the idea – however, some didn’t quite agree with it.

“I know I’m evil, but they’re SO loud. Please, I want peace and quiet. Are there adults-only pools in Melbourne??” – an Aussie influencer, Kitch Catterall, took to TikTok to “officially” (and perhaps controversially) call for child-free neighborhoods. The video gained over 262K views and 27K likes, and a heated debate ensued in the comments section.

“I would like to know when somebody is planning on opening an adult-only suburb where everything in it is only for adults?” the woman said rhetorically at the beginning of her video. Kitch revealed that she is sick and tired of having to tolerate screaming kids wherever she goes. The TikToker shared that when she went for a swim, she noticed that the little ones practically overtook the lap pool despite having their own one. She argued that “evil,” children-hating people like her should have their own suburb where they can be undisturbed.

As we all know, the internet can be a nasty place, and even if you’re just expressing your personal viewpoint and doing no harm to anyone, people will still criticize you. Kitch received a fair amount of backlash and even had to specify that she was “not bagging on families existing, just sometimes want a quiet break” to a mum who happened to side with her proposal. 

One commenter sent the TikToker straight to Antarctica, presumably to finally get away from the noisy children; another one said that the ultimate child-free place is already a thing and is called a retirement village. The point is, it seems like a lot of people are quick to label you as this wicked villain for wanting to live a life free of having to encounter screaming and tantrum-throwing kids, but is it really such a bad idea?

The now-viral video sparked a heated debate amongst fellow TikTok users

The woman made a follow-up video where she further explained her position. “So many people [are] pressed in the comments. Like, sorry that some people don’t want to be around kids 24/7. I’m not saying kids shouldn’t be allowed at the pool, it’d just be nice if there were more places that were JUST for adults to enjoy, and that includes parents wanting a break from their kids too. Chill.” 

Wanting an occasional break, especially if you yourself are child-free, is not criminal. Perhaps it was the delivery that incited all the hate, or maybe the internet is just not a friendly place – whatever it is, we can all agree that a kid-free pool is a heavenly idea. Always. 

What do you think about this?
