It's Alive

Yep, I remember having exactly the same reaction as Kathy. I don't remember how old I was, maybe ten or eleven. But I certainly came to precisely the same conclusion as Final Girl:Babies are evil and being pregnant is weird!

But it was certainly helped along by the general cultural ambiance created by my mother's fem-bot hippie friends. I don't know if they realised what sort of interesting emotional and logical feedback loop it created in my head to hear so regularly that having children ruins women's lives.

Errr... should I apologise then?
