You Shouldn’t Need A Reason For Not Having Kids → 

Posted on 24 November 2014

Jamie Berube:

“It is time for those who view it as socially appropriate to make comments or jokes about a woman’s plans for child-bearing to understand that it’s not okay. It is also not okay to ask when she’s going to have kids or her reasons why she’s choosing not to. I don’t care who you are — unless you are my husband, doctor, or my best friend of fourteen years, do not ask me or make jokes about my pregnancy status. Or lack thereof. It’s not funny, cute, or kind. In fact, it’s the exact opposite, and depending on whatever my circumstances might be that you likely don’t know about it could be absolutely devastating.”

Posted to me after I wrote this. Absolutely right. You should avoid getting judgmental about whether someone has a kid because a. you don’t know if they can or not and b. it’s none of your business.
