Are you an innie or an outie?

Today’s Salon article, 3rd in their To Breed or Not to Breed series, focuses primarily on the urge or yeaning for children that many would be parents profess to face. I have to put into question the prevalence of such feelings as internal desires rather than external pressures. Don’t get me wrong. I am sure there are plenty of people who feel a strong maternal or paternal instinct, but I am just not buying that it is as strong as they claim, or that they are not confusing their feelings of what is “supposed” to be the next step, or what “the reason for life” is, with a feeling of wanting children.
Also: yesterday’s article.
