I love this series. Brittany Shoot, previously interviewed by podcast, The Story, on her choice to undergo tubal ligation surgery at 27, is now over at Bitchmagazine.org blogging about women’s decisions to have children or not. She discusses why women may decide to not have children. She talks about the fallout amongst family and friends, as well as the celebrations. She questions society’s all too willing judgments against childfree people, including celebrities. She talks about the fascination with extremely large families and the equally odd lack of interest in tiny ones. I can’t wait to see what she blogs about next.
Below is the first in her series, No Kidding; I plan to feature each of her posts here at the Scarlet Tartlet because I think it’s such a compelling topic that deserves widespread and civilized consideration. And because I, myself, am not personally interested in childbearing. (Undecided about adoption as of yet.)
What about you? Ever experience any uncomfortableness around the subject of having kids or not having kids? Experienced any family or peer pressure?
