Every time I say women’s ovaries have a shelf life, people look at me like I love rape. I’ve even heard doctors being called sexist for pointing out this basic, biological fact.
You try and explain that you’ve seen all your 40-something female friends go insane trying to turn back the clock with fertility drugs etc. but young women keep insisting they’re part of the tiny percentage of females who don’t want kids. You say they are falling into a trap and the only people who benefit from women who kid themselves is men who don’t want to settle down (and these lazy assholes with no ambition or balls are also to blame). It all goes into the ether and you figure there are no young women on earth who understand biology. Then two sane girls pop on to your TV and you feel like there is hope. FINALLY.
“Oh what, you think biological reality doesn’t apply to you in your adorable cocoon of agelessness?
Well it does. While you’re just waiting around focussing on you. Guess what.YOU’RE GOING TO MISS YOUR FUCKING WINDOW!”
