Motherhood is Not This Woman’s Most Important Job

Great piece for teasing out the bs! I had two kids, and I would say it was the most valuable thing I did, if not the most important; I did a pretty good job, though I don’t take all the credit OR the blame!

But the thing I really get about this piece is the judgement around what kind of HUMAN you are if you don’t want kids. I have friends who were told they were selfish for not having kids. Wait…what?

No no no, selfish is having kids when you didn’t want to and being a shitty parent. But the cost around NOT having kids is to be othered. Good for you for getting through or around that! Enjoyable read.
