Opting not to have children still causes comment. About a year ago, I wrote a blogpost called Plea For The Unused Uterus, in which I explained why I do not want to bear any children and why I think the question should be why a woman would want them, rather than having to defend her choice not to have any. The post was well received at the time and apparently lives on, as women’s monthly Opzij did a portrait of me as a childfree woman in this month’s issue. The photograph was taken by Thomas Schlijper.
