This topic reeeeeeally grinds my gears.
I get pressured into having kids by my husband every other day. In this day and age, I shouldn't have to be put through the ringet because he wants me to change MY body just so I can have a trophy spawn to carry around and take care of when all I do is think about his well being. I cook meals for him, I pack his lunches, I clean up after him, I run his errands, I take care of the finances, I plan EVERYTHING. I also work 2 jobs...
I know I am whiny and bitchy but I refuse to fall into the same trap as my friends. They are financially and mentally unstable. They have nasty tempers and alcoholism. Yet I get pressured into having kids.
DESPITE how I do good at my jobs, I do the wife duties, and I am financially stable with minimal debt. I am also an accomplished author.
Why the fuck should I have to produce a crotch goblin just because society deems it successful.
This isn't the 1950s where all I had to do was lay down, get impregnated and keep the husband happy.
Fuck the bad choices, and fuck the stereotypes.
