Now I'm in my late 30's, I haven't been subjected to Child-free/breeder bingo in quite some time, but I am always prepared for it.
Children were the topic of conversation last night at work, and I was asked, "Do you ever want children?"
Now I'm always polite about it, after all, it is just conversation
"No, I'm not bothered."
I let out a barely audible sigh, thinking, "Here we go."
"Because I don't. I'm not maternal."
"What does your husband think?"
"Same as me."
Then came the big-one. The personal question that most people want to ask, but are afraid to. Although it has happened a few times.
"What would you do if you got pregnant?"
I find this question slightly offensive, I mean, would I dare say anything about abortions to a Mum about her children?
Anyway, I replied, "Well, if you're going to ask such a personal question, I'd probably have an abortion."
Her, "Oh...." Then she looked down and started doing her paperwork again, changed the subject and started talking to someone else.
I've never had it yet, but I wonder if I'm ever going to get, "Have you ever had an abortion?"
