It has come to my attention that tv really doesn’t know how to handle/write childfree by choice (CBC) people. 30 Rock last night was the latest show to join the list of shows that treat being CBC like it’s a temporary condition that will be cured by meeting the right person or the right kid or just coming to your senses. Hey, tv and movie world - there are perfectly normal, happy people in the world who have no interest in having kids, and they never will! We don’t need to be fixed, and we aren’t going to change our minds - in fact, it’s better for everyone concerned if we don’t change our minds, given our zero interest in kids. We’re also not horrible, uncaring people; most of us have pets and are actively involved in volunteering and our communities. I know TV Land isn’t the most realistic world out there, but apparently everyone in it desperately wants kids, or is broken (but if they’re lucky, they get fixed, and not in the good way).
Uh, that’s about it. Just wanted to share this annoyance.
