Mothers Have Their Own Platform, Why Can't We?

Don't get it twisted...this is NOT an attack on the ever-so-popular "mompreneur" and other mommy platforms on social media. But, in a world that preaches inclusivity, why do most people frown upon those who choose NOT to have children? If mothers can post about their day-to-day activities, so can we!
We have the right to showcase our lifestyle without it being misconstrued as bragging, irresponsible, or annoying. (Although some childfree platforms explicitly brag about being childfree, that's not what Unfertilized Eggs is about.)
We should'nt have to remain silent or hide how happy we are that we chose a life that best fits us, instead of falling victim to societal "norms." You have the right to be the rich auntie, fly stepmom, loving dog mom, or caring plant mom. (Did we miss anything??)
Childfree women are some of the bravest and free-spirited people around - and that should be celebrated.
With that said, on this last day of Women's History Month, we encourage you to continue to boldly and unapologetially own your childfree status, and never worry about what other people have to say about you. Your uterus, your business.

Childfree women DO have the freedom and flexibility to get up and go without having to scramble around for a babysitter, as Mary J. also mentioned...
