This Woman Has A Powerful Message For People Who Ask Women About Babies

Having children (or not) is a deeply personal decision and asking someone about their intentions when it comes to children can feel hurtful and invasive -- even if that is far from the questioner's intent. Emily Bingham attempted to put an end to the conversation once and for all. After posting an ultrasound photo she lifted from a Google Image search, she posted the following: elite-daily-fb1 The September 20 post has now gone viral! In an interview with "Good Morning America," the freelance writer and Michigan State University graduate says that it was comments made by her boyfriend's family that prompted the statement. She said, "I had had dinner with some of my boyfriend’s family, and someone had made a joke about grandkids, pointed at me, and it wasn’t the first time I’d had somebody make a comment like that. I’m 33. I’ve never been married. I’ve had people say things like, ‘You’re getting older, do you want to have kids? Your clock is ticking.'" Judging by the Facebook response to the post, this appears to be a common experience for many people in their 20s and 30s. This post has been shared close to 42,000 times. It is clearly an issue fraught with tension on both sides. What do you think? Do you think Bingham is correct in telling people to butt out and instead focus on what matters to an individual in that moment or do you think she's being overly sensitive and should just get over it?
