Jumper and beanie set, $3
I find it churlish when people describe child-free women as selfish. The correct term is self-centred. It’s women who have children who are in fact selfish. Unless I’m mistaken, most of us have children because we know that becoming a parent is just about the best thing that could ever happen to a person. Of course, there’s a lot of day-to-day selflessness involved in raising children, but that doesn't make bringing into the world in the first place the opposite of selfish. After all, the planet's resources are finite.

  1. Nice distinction - I'm saying that from now on. I bought that exact jumper from the Holy Trinity Oppy in Kew. No beanie though.
