Dear LeNora,

Good on you! I think you’re brave & vulnerable & honest, I support & encourage your life & your choices!

Our society’s obsession with women’s choices & bodies, & how they “should” be is beyond messed up. Not everyone should be a parent. Period. Women who don’t want children should not be made to feel like second-class citizens, or worse, criminal failures at life!

I have kids, but honestly I’d rather talk & share pictures of my dogs & look at dogs of other people — they’re much less boring! There are very few people whose children interest me. I can actually only think of one. Hmm…

So you have my complete support & admiration. You go, girl!
