Not only that, but she was also to discourage other family members from doing it to me/others.
It worked beautifully.
On the other hand, women face hurtful valorisations on both edges of this:
'X is awesome for not having kids' is another way of dehumanising them—saying their value comes from something outside of just being themselves, and fulfilling their humanity in the best possible way.
Having said that, I understand why we need to celebrate childless witches as a counter-paradigm of what is a very real and oppressive societal demand, but we also must celebrate mothers beyond their parenthood and in their full humanity.
You should feel no pressure to have kids, but also no pressure to stick with your decision of not having any; parenthood is NOT an ideology.
