Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?
I think the pressure society puts on a person about this is ridiculous, and would also like to point out that a lot of the pressure is related to western culture. I'm physically unable to have kids AND a lesbian and my mothers biggest complaint is that she wont get any grandkids from me, completely ignoring the possibility of adoption, and the fact that my brother has 3 kids!!! Why is it so important for a woman to make and pop out a baby when there are millions of children already in the world who dont have families that love and care about them or food or shelter!!! why would you want to bring another child into that kind of world?
