Fuck Yeah Caitlin Moran

But when women are asked when they’re going to have children, there is, in actuality, another, darker, more pertinent question lying underneath it. If you listen very, very carefully — turn off all extraneous sound-sources, and press your finger to your lips, to silence passers-by, — you can hear it.

It’s this: ‘When are you going to fuck it all up by having kids?’

When are you going to blow a four-year chunk, minimum, out of your career — at an age when most people’s attractiveness, creativitiy and ambition is peaking — by having a baby? When are you going to — as is the decent, right and beautiful thing — put all your creativity and power on hold, in order to tend to the helpless, minute-by-minute needs of your newly born? When are you going to stop making films/albums/books/deals? When do the holes start appearing in your CV? When do you get left behind, and forgotten? CAN WE GET POPCORN AND WATCH?
