Jeeze-a-loo, some people try VERY hard to get offended. I just had my son a few months ago, its been hard financially considering only my husband has work right now (a minimum wage part time job for me would only be enough to pay the baby-sitter in my area) but we make do. So anyway I was talking to this lady in the dr.'s office, pleasant enough woman for a first time chat, but soon the conversation went sour, it went like this-

lady: So how has it been having a baby?
me: eh well you know, you never have any money (haha) but its great
lady: been hard with the cash, huh?
me: yup, but we already figured that beforehand
lady: you know if you knew it was going hard why didn't you have an abortion?
me: :O_o: what?
lady: an abortion
me: I would never get an abotion
lady: why?
me: I don't think its right
lady: :devil: HOW DARE YOU! *insert exlpetives here* women's rights, uterus, *expletives* you're a F***** sexist B**** you can't deny our rights you *more expletives* keep you republican s*** to yourself *expletives continued* *change seats in office*
me: are you here because you ran out of your meds?

What the hell did I say that was so wrong? I said an opinion, respectfully, calmly and noncombatively. She acted like I took my views and slammed them down her throat with a shot of alcohol and clorox :o . It was a simple viewpoint in a casual conversation, and SHE brought it up! Like I said, I think some people try really hard to get offended; and I DO think she was out of meds. Normal people don't react that badly unless something is loose upstairs :paranoid:. Bleh, I need an icepack for my head, that lady gave me a headache.

Abortion is a touchy subject. I think that people on both sides tend to reduce the matter to sound bites and platitudes, forgetting that there are real people with real lives involved. The hot-button syndrome is a symptom of a refusal to think, in my opinion. No one wants to put themselves in the shoes of another person, each with their own unique set of experiences and patterns of thinking, each one as valuable as the next, and try to figure out if they'd have the same opinion as they do being the person that they are. Thinking is hard. And most people get more of a kick out of saying how much better they are for being on their side than considering why someone else might disagree.

I... I got in here and left a comment a while ago I think. Then I come here again and see some giant shitstorm and now I forgot what this whole thing was all about :confused:

So eh. Who likes chocolate?
I like chocolate. But it looks gross to me on certain days.
I have to be in the mood for it. :shrug:

lady: So how has it been having a baby?
you: I would rather not discuss it.
lady: why?
you: Because it ain't none o' yer fuckin' business.
