Do we want the bitter words of the empty womb
Directed at me?
I don't think comments like the above "empty womb" quote are at all helpful, and could in fact be construed as quite hateful, f'r instance to women who have experienced problems conceiving.
Although I do not have children, I contributed to the "two year old behaviour" thread, and I do hope my own contribution was balanced and constructive, which it was intended to be.
If non-parents are not welcome here, I would respect the space and stay out of it, just as I stay out of WOC.
But I think that would be a shame, really. I have an interest in lesbian parenting, in kids and their development, in the experiences of gay families. I often find the experiences and viewpoints shared on this board very insightful and interesting - often fascinating on so many levels.
If a parent
had expressed some of the "bitter words" on that thread, would that have been more tolerable?
