Have I Offended You?
I came across this article and decided to read some of the comments to see the direction it took.Ã‚Â Usually when people discuss the concept of “childfree” other people tend to get defensive and overly opinionated…this time was no different.
After reading some of the comments I gathered people had the opinion that the childfree were selfish, immature and pretty much worthless.Ã‚Â Maybe I’m exagerating but at least that is how it came across to me.
What I still have trouble understanding (and will probably never fully grasp) is why anyone has the right to judge how I decide to live my life?Ã‚Â By not having children I am certainly not hurting anyone, quite the opposite I think.Ã‚Â I feel quite the same about gay marriage, how is that going to hurt anyone else?
It’s a little bizarre how obsessed people are with people choosing not to have children and it makes me wonder what is really behind such animosity.Ã‚Â I certainly don’t judge others for their choices even if it’s not a choice I would make.
