It's not offensive because the question isn't implying that there can't be good reasons. It's just a prying personal question, and makes about as much sense as asking why someone DOES want kids. The only reason to ask is selfish curiosity.

I think people who are truly entitled brats are out there, but they are pretty rare outside the 13-16 set (or, more like 13-22 for males) - young people who have not the experience to see just how much they have compared to others. Most people I know do take a lot of comfort for granted but they are not assholes who feel entitled. I think judging others as entitled is sometimes an instance of attribution error ("You do X because you are a Y type person, but I do X only when circumstances require it")
