Anyone notice the new bump feature on the main page today?
"The latest in fertility treatments: From weird to awesome."
Which ones are the "weird" ones, bump gods? Donors? Surrogates? I can't help but be a little offended by TB referring to ANY IF treatment as weird, especially the ones mentioned in the article.
Using the term "weird" keeps the topic of IF and associated treatments taboo and I think it's sad that the bump of all places continues to promote this kind of thinking.
IF isn't weird to me. It's my normal, and to 1 out of 8 couples, it's their normal too. There's nothing "weird" about it and it shouldn't continued to be viewed as such.
