When Did The Obsession With Jennifer Aniston’s Uterus Got Out Of Hand?
I’ve been reading the same articles about Jennifer Aniston for almost 2 decades now. When will she have a baby? Why won’t she have a baby? She has a new husband now… it’s her last chance to have a baby! Cheeeeez… When did the obsession with Jennifer Anison’s uterus got out of control? Lighten up people and once and for all… She’s apparently happy without one! Baby i mean…
And she’s also right you know.
“They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?”, said the actress for the latest issue of InStyle.
Even if it isn’t a medical issue. Even if she just doesn’t want a baby, with anybody period…. Does it means that she’s less of a woman than the woman who’s given birth? I don’t think so. And yes… Not every woman likes to become a mother and we need to respect it. Regardless of what her motives for that decision may be, that’s OK. Seriously. It’s very much OK, and shouldn’t be frowned upon. And further more. When did having a kid became a status symbol in the western society? Yes, i’m very well aware that she’s rich and she could provide a child with the best education, care and lifestyle but she’s a grown ass woman and very capable of making her fertility decisions.
‘Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff. ‘When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned. The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure. F that. When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?’
Again… This is true for every woman everywhere. Not just in Hollywood. I’ve heard so many comments like this about the people around me. It’s always that the woman in the relationship that is scorned. She’s always to blame and it’s her loss, and like the single bitter woman that is now (after the breakup or divorce) it’s her destiny to die alone, depressed and unwanted. Yeah, i don’t think so. But, back at the topic of babies. Last year i had a conversation with an acquaintance of mine, and he causally mentioned (mind you it was a HE) doesn’t want a child, but he was pressured to have one from his immediate family. I also have an aunt in her mid 50’s who is still childless. I can’t tell you how many times she’s been the but of jokes, she’s been degraded and verbally abused from everyone around her just because she’s unmarried and childless.
So i guess Jennifer and my aunt get the same treatment, but it shouldn’t be that way. People should mind their own business and stop caring about other women’s uteruses. Seriously. It’s not anyone’s concern why should Jennifer or anybody else remain childless. She and pretty much everybody else doesn’t owe the world an explanation or even apology for their child-free lifestyle. If Jen doesn’t want to have a child, she won’t have any, and that’s that. So… Stop focusing on her uterus and start focusing on your own for a change. Maybe you’ll like it.
