Toby Byrum is a 30-year-old single guy who does not want to have children. In fact, two years ago, he decided that he wouldn't be able to have children.
He had a vasectomy.
He talked about his decision this morning with Matt. WATCH VIDEO
This story really surprised me. I'm a 28-year-old single guy, and I had never heard of anyone my age seriously doing this (the character who did it on "Seinfeld" doesn't count).
Byrum is adamant that he's happy with his decision and has no regrets. And that's fine. It's obviously a personal decision.
I just wonder what the upside is to having it done. What if you change your mind? What if you meet a woman who changes your mind? What if you want a dependent for tax purposes? (kidding)
I don't know -- this whole thing sounds crazy to me. But hey, as Alan Weisman said in our Q&A a few weeks ago, we need to reduce our population anyway. So maybe Byrum just wanted to "go green."
