dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

The American Prospect:

What do mothers want?  “She has few public voices helping her to clarify her dilemma or pointing to ways out of it. Politicians ignore her plight, and conservatives denounce her as a selfish, “privileged” whiner. The current put-down and silencer is no longer, ‘You’re neurotic’ but, ‘It’s your choice! No one made you have those kids; now suck it up and take the consequences!’”  And yet, if a woman chooses childlessness, they’re stigmatized too.  No win.
