Being a woman in 2011 is stressful. Women have come such a long way in society as we are taking charge of our lives, our education, and our careers. Yah, that's great and all, but it doesn't help that even with our new found "freedom" we are still bound by our natural duty to reproduce. Ugh, talk about doing twice the work! I mean, you expect me to have a groundbreaking career AND get married and have babies?! Yeah right! I'm so sick and tired of people telling me how little time I have to find Mr. Right and create many blacktina babies.
So, you graduated from college. Congratulations! So you have your dream job. Congratulations! So you're not engaged/married/pregnant. Oooh girl, get your priorities straight. WHAT? Exactly, it's not supposed to make sense. Look ladies, getting married does not have to be #1 on your post-graduate priority list. Stop worrying about when the perfect man is going to roll up into your life and start worrying about what kind of career you're going to have and what kind of woman you want to be by the time he eventually does show up.
If you are surrounded by people who are constantly telling you that your "biological clock is ticking away" for every moment that you aren't spending prowling for eligible bachelors at every possible hang out spot, you should probably get new friends. If that's too drastic for you, then stand up for yourself as a woman in the 21st century, and remind them that you still have time for families and babies. I'm tired of feeling pressured to find Mr. Right and I know some of you are too. Don't waste your younger years worrying about men and babies, let's show the 21st century what the XX chromosomes are all about.
