Is humiliating other people fun?


I promised on day one of this blog that I would share the outrageous things that some fertile people sometimes say and do.  I like to think I can be the conscience for those who apparently lack one.  I came across this wonderful example of insensitivity from a blog post written by a lovely woman in the process of adoption. I’m sorry there’s just no excuse for the blatant act of inconsiderateness committed on this woman. At best it’s naive and at worst it’s cruel.

    WOW, that post made my blood boil. I can’t believe those girls acted like that, its just thoughtless and insensitive (even if they didn’t know the person’s history) – the point is, they DON’T know, so they should keep their %#$&@ comments to themselves. Aaaargh.

    Thank you for visiting my blog!

    The behavior of those women, in “faking” a pregnancy with a teddy bear beneath the shirt — what, are they preschoolers? — is beyond misguided.

    Thank you for linking to my blog! Reading your blog has made me understand even more how cruel my coworker was. I think we just need to raise people’s understanding, and blogging is one way to do it. Your blog has really made me think about loss. Although I have not experienced infertility, I have faced some losses through my decision to adopt. This was something that I did not anticipate.
