    Every year I try to catch the Academy Awards, of course with interest in the nominees, but also how the Oscar winners give their award acceptance speeches. You’d think that actors would be decent public speakers – and many are – but not so much in one particular public speaking area – acceptance speeches!… Read more

  • To My Friend Who Chooses To Be Childfree

    20 Feb 2015 | 12:33 pm
    To My Friend Who Chooses To Be ChildfreeSome of the commenters seem upset by this letter, which tells a friend, Sam, that she is not judged for choosing to be childfree. I would hesitate before coming to such a conclusion, since I think we need an understanding of Indian culture before really knowing where the author, Swati, is coming from. Also, the author is not basing this on simply assuming Sam feels judged, but rather on Sam's discomfort when admitting she is childfree. Regardless of how you feel about the author, or this letter, I think that this allows us to get some insight into what…

  • Why Having Kids Won’t Fulfill You | TIME

    14 Jan 2015 | 7:23 pm
    Why Having Kids Won’t Fulfill You | TIME:"Had we continued having infertility issues and not been able to conceive, I am certain that I would have felt that there was something “missing” from my life. But only because I believed the narrative my mother sold – that children bring fulfillment. Since I’ve become a mother and seen that the essence of what makes me who I am has not changed, I’ve learned that nothing outside of you can fulfill you. Fulfillment is all about how you perceive the fullness or emptiness of your life. But how can a woman feel fulfilled if she’s constantly…
  • America's declining fertility rate: It is not up to the female reproductive system to save America.

    11 Jan 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Slate."To save America, women, especially those aforementioned pesky middle-class, white women, are going to have to start having more babies at a younger age, the argument goes. That this demand means that women will end up curtailing their ambitions and moving into the support-staff role is simply a coincidence, of course. Nothing to see here.. . .What really galls me about Last's piece (and most like it) is the underlying assumption that human beings exist to serve society and not the other way around... The reader is left with the feeling that the only solution to save capitalism is to…
