“Generation Rex” (Lol)


More young women choosing dogs over motherhood

From the article:

“I’d rather have a dog over a kid,” declared Sara Foster, 30, a Chelsea equities trader who says her French bulldog, Maddie, brings her more joy than a child.

“It’s just less work and, honestly, I have more time to go out. You . . . don’t have to get a baby sitter.”

Only a woman who has never had a child can make the statement that “a dog brings her more joy than a child”. After all, how can the two be compared when she hasn’t had the experience of having a child?

That being said, I think it’s fine that single women have a dog instead of a child. As I’ve grown older (and wiser?) I’ve realized that it takes two to raise a child. And I am speaking of a man and woman. Each giving a perspective of their gender.  Is having a dog less work, of course. And less responsibility? I think so.
