Here’s my favorite:
In today’s American culture, if you aren’t being constantly validated, you’re being persecuted.
It’s among the conclusions of Nancy French’s piece reviewing the Time article about the growing wave of “child-free” people – who, finding that our society values children, are finding themselves less-validated and, ergo, persecuted.
(“Child-Free” is as opposed to “Childless”; childless means “can’t have kids, or just haven’t found the right person, time and situation to try”, while “child-free” means “choose to avoid having your life center around something other than yourself…”
Oops. Now I’m persecuting.
