Please go to the article and comment. Please help us tell the bump gods that we're not weird and that the article title should be changed.

"They never do clarify what is considered "weird" and what is "awesome" in their article. I guess I'm just not happy seeing an adjective like "weird" next to fertility treatment slapped on their main page. To me, the article's title encourages this idea that some fertility treatments are weird. I feel like it encourages your average fertile bumpie to think of infertility treatments are a part of a sideshow or something. It's already a taboo topic as it is among most fertile people, yet it's the norm for sooooo many couples.
I try to be an advocate for speaking up for IF and I promote embryo adoption whenever I can. It's hard enough as it is trying to explain to your average fertile person that building a family using donor embryo/egg/sperm isn't weird, it's actually a beautiful option for those of us who didn't get selected for the traditional path to parenthood. They didn't call out donor issues as weird, but they don't clarify so it's left for the reader to decide, right? I didn't like seeing "weird" next to the word fertility treatment on the main page where lots of bumpies go"
