Um, excuse me, what? Selfish….I didn’t realize my life choice was her’s to judge.

I went out with a guy friend, years ago. I was in my late 30s at the time. Didn’t have kids, nor did I want any. We accidentally ran into his sister while we were out. She is very religious, very uptight, and very much about traditional values (women get married and have kids); in her righteous opinion that is all women are good for. Anyway, I am very much the opposite. I chose not to have kids for my own very valid, very responsible reasons. A week later my guy friend reported to me how his sister warned him I would try to trap him and get pregnant by him or some random man because it was obvious I was desperate to get pregnant soon since I was getting old. Wow. I asked if he corrected her since he knows how I feel about having kids, marriage, the whole bit. No, there are some discussions not worth having. Nothing he would have said would have changed her mind. She was certain I was going to trap her brother into a pregnancy. Some people are just narrow-minded idiots making assumptions.
