Because they all assume you're on welfare, after all, you couldn't possibly afford that many kids without THEIR tax dollars paying for it. Or they assume the kids each have a different dad, or you don't have enough sense to figure out what's causing you to get pregnant in the first place.
I guess they don't have enough sense to see a diamond on my finger and see that my kids all look just alike. I try to remind older people who make nasty comments that I and my kids are paying for their social security, so not to complain.
And I'll say this- I've only got two here living, and have lost 5 pregnancies. I started getting nasty comments once I started showing with the pregnancies I lost each time. And, of course, I get comments for even getting pregnant since I had a miscarriage last time. Like any of it is their business.
I feel better now.
ETA: I want to make it clear that don't take issue at all with people who are on public assistance and have kids. My issue is with people who think it's their business to tell me what decisions to make in my life based on their ASSumptions.
