Well, being on the Straight Dope and all I’m sure I’m not…but it sure feels like it! Go to dance class, somene brings a baby, dance class grinds screechingly to a halt because everyone has to go admire the little bundle of joy. When I go to the SO’s house, we have to play with his niece and it’s expected that as the female I should want to forgo all other fun and play with the baby. Baby shows up at the office, same thing.
Don’t get me wrong. I like kids, to an extent. I even think they’re cute…for about 3.5 seconds. And I have no problem with people who do find kids cute…I just hate being expected to do the same! It’s a kid! It’s just not that interesting to me.
Please reassure me that I’m not the only who feels this way and is sick of this expectation. Even my SO told me the other day, “You know, you are unusual among women…” :dubious: Thanks.
