childless women

A few years ago I had this conversation with a student in my A level Chemistry group.

Student: Kaz - Have you any kids?’
Me : No.
Student: (in disbelief): What – none at all?

In the seventies we were more concerned with avoiding pregnancy. Now it seems to be illegal not to have at least one token sprog like Kate Moss, Liz Hurley or SJP. Our Royal family Tony and Cherie set a wonderful example.
However, have you noticed that all these role models do not exactly seem to spend a lot of time with their little darlings?
Today we heard from the German family minister Ms Ursula van der Leyen who has SEVEN children. This woman works in Berlin whilst superhubby stays home in Hanover and changes nappies. And she has the brass neck to criticise German women for not breeding. It beggars belief.
It seems that 30% of women and 40% of female university graduates just couldn’t be bothered.

I think it should be compulsory to read ‘We need to talk about Kevin’ before contemplating pregnancy. It’s by Lionel Shriver who is a woman. Don’t they know about girls’ names in the States?

Thank goodness for chaps like Rod Stewart who are still breeding for Britain.

As someone who has also had your opening 'criticism' levelled at me more than once, can I just say how refreshing it is to see someone who seems to have similar views on this subject? (the giveway was the "I think it should be compulsory to read ‘We need to talk about Kevin’ before contemplating pregnancy." :))
