Furthermore… in response

January 21, 2007

I just wanted to respond to some comments… I totally agree on the need for fulfillment and also with Allie : “I think it’s easy to say things like ‘why not just adopt?’ if you’re young or inexperienced, or never really wanted children.”

From what I read around on others’ blogs there seems to be a lot of comments from people who
a) don’t have kids or
b) don’t have ’em and don’t even want them

I found a lot of posts from women saying they thought it was completely selfish and a waste of time/money for women who had some ‘bizarre desperate need to produce offspring’. I found it so odd. One even said that any women who were that desperate to have a child should have to have a psych evaluation beforehand because anyone that was *that* desperate *must* have ‘hang ups’.

Because of course it’s not natural for women to want children.

Can I just clarify – I walk the middle of most things. I don’t see it as bizarre that a woman should be desperate to want a family of her ‘own’, nor do I see it unnatural for a woman *not* to want children at all.

I really live by a live and let live policy.

If it doesn’t affect you, then why can’t you just wind your neck in & get on with your own knitting and let others get on with their lives, doing things that are important to them while you *surely* are doing things that are important to you?

Unless of course – you have nothing important to do.. 😉

    “wind your neck in & get on with your own knitting”
