A Stranger Asked Me If I Felt Like ‘Less Of A Woman’ Because I Don’t Have Children

A few years ago, I was talking to a stranger at a wedding.

She asked me if I had kids

When I said no, she responded, “Do you feel like less of a woman?”

Conflating womanhood with the ability and desire to reproduce is obviously incredibly outdated and sexist (and also transphobic)

 Not to mention that those who say these things are nearly always referring to biological children

which ignores the many different ways to create a family.


But honestly, as a married woman in my 40s without children, I get this kind of judgment all the time.
