Our anti-children culture
In an extraordinary thread at The Thinking Housewife, parents who have had more than 2.2 children tell of the rude, sarcastic, and nasty comments they receive from relatives, friends, and strangers, and how they respond to them.
We have four daughters, the first-born are twins. When I pushed the twins in their stroller, people used to say, “Glad it’s you and not me!” And I would always concur. One time I got into an argument with a very militant pro-abortionist at the newspaper where I worked, who thought I was reckless for bringing more children into the world. I asked her which of them I should drown. I am tired of biting my tongue. We would have had six children, had two of them not died before they were born.
