the invisible woman

by rantywoman

If you dropped in from outer space you would conclude, based on Time‘s view of the world anyway, that:

1) People without children spend most of their time idly lounging around (um, how does not having children make one independently wealthy) either with a glass of alcohol in hand — or at the ready in some carefree place. (The booze must be an editorial bias because I happen to know quite a few parents who drink more than a little … I think you can guess why.)

2) My cohort — the vast majority of my readership — aka those not parenting, but not because we didn’t want to or try to simply do not exist.

Nothing like being made to feel invisible to make you want to wave your hands, whistle and declare in your outdoor voice: “heeelllllo….we’re over here!”
