Childfree Response to "Of Pleasure and Parenthood"
Why else would it so burn them that the childfree couple could be so overtly- - (sputter!) -- so openly -- (teeth clench!) -- so unapologetically -- (head explosion!) -- content with their choice? Happy, even. No regret. No uncertainty. How dare they?
The mommy-wars will only end when we have enough confidence in our own choices to truly want others to be happy. Mothers, trust other women to know what they want just as you knew what you wanted. Be happy, and let them be happy, too.
