People Who Remain Childless
Maybe I am still bitter from my awful day in cold Chicago, but I found this article in the Chicago Tribune interesting: Destiny's child-free. Basically, it is about women who choose not to have children. There is plenty of lingo used by the childless to describe mothers and their offspring. Apparently, there is an organization called "No Kidding" that caters to this bunch:
Connolly says that she's not going to regret her choice to be child-free and that she's sick of people telling her she's too young to be certain.
"I just don't think of my life in terms of ever having children," she says. "I have two children right now: my two boxers. My dogs will be my children. That's how it's always gonna be."
Often, I wonder if these women will ever live to regret their decision, especially when they are old and gray and there is no one to take care of them. But today I am feeling like, "Lucky bitches get to sleep in!" Good for them for standing up to societal norms.
