      Unlike the author, I have not been constantly questioned and pestered about not wanting children. I thank my lucky stars that I can happily live my live without feeling that judgment or pressure. However, a lot of women live where the societal/cultural pressure to reproduce is much higher, and you better believe it weighs on them. Does she have to explain herself to anyone? No, certainly not. But articles like this help other women like her in their own situations, where maybe they’ve never been told that their decision not to have kids is okay. At the absolute very least, writing can be a cathartic activity, and I’m sure the author found some relief in writing this article and sharing her story. That’s enough for me!
