I saw a post on facebook today from the Feminist Breeder. It said that her cousin had just had a baby, and she wrote "she worked hard for a natural birth and she got it!"
I'm probably picking too much. But you know, I worked hard for that too. Damn hard. For nine months, then three days of labor.
But I didn't get one.
Did I not work hard enough? Is hard work all it really takes? I just get so frustrated with this. It's just like the Horatio Alger myth. If you work hard enough, you can have anything.
Really? Since when has that been true?
