Some of you may have seen this TED talk. I'm very glad to see more and more women speaking up! Somewhat recently, I ran across a little tidbit on the interwebs about a woman who ran for governor of one of the western states in about 1910. The quote was something like, "I'm running for governor. I know I won't win, but I want to start people thinking about what women can do and accomplish. I'm starting now because it takes a long time for an idea to take hold." I wish I could remember her name. Later on I tried researching who she was, but wasn't able to find out.
Anyway, here is one more person speaking out about choosing not to have children! I read a few of the comments, and they weren't too bad. Comments on YouTube can be ridiculously scary sometimes.
So while it DOES take a long time for an idea to take root, remember that nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.
In other news, howdy to all you childfree peeps!
