I know some of the meanest people can still like babies or puppies or something, but I get the idea that some people who say they dislike children are rather serious, and have lost their innocence in a way. Of course some may just say they and dislike them on a very superficial level, but I also think they have forgotten the child within them, and maybe need to re-connect with that.
Usually the people that like children are those creepy child molester types..

On a serious note, if they shipped half the earth population to another planet i would be ok with that. Mostly applied to those who make babies like its a hobby.

Liking or disliking children doesn't determine what kind of person a person is. There are good people who hate children and bad people who love them...as well as the other way around.
You are apparently talking about exceptions.

I have kids of my own, and I don't like all children. I love mine, but not everyone else's. Kids can be annoying, especially in restaurants and movie theaters. A lot of parents do not discipline their children properly today, they let them run rampant at supermarkets and department stores. Not cool.

So you should figure it out the answer now

I also have kids but, there are only some kids I actually like. My kids were very well behaved when out in public when they were young, they are now young adults and they still make me proud. Parents who have bratty kids that let them run rampant when out and obviously don't discipline their kids are the ones I have a problem with well, and their kids LOL

A man who does not like children is no better than a dog to me

Self-interested is fine
Self-efficient is even better
But not self-obsessed

how is not liking children any different to not liking anything else? Do you feel horrified if a person says they don't like ice cream, or watching movies?

A person who doesn't like kids isn't necessarily self-obsessed. Maybe they just prefer the company of adults.

I hate kids but I don't consider myself self-obsessed, far from it.
