Ladies, I'm pretty speechless right now because of an e-mail I received from a good friend of DH and mine. He was actually a groomsman at our wedding and is my best friend's fiance.
Basically, out of nowhere he sent an e-mail saying that he knows we want to have children but we should reconsider because, "Pretty much humans are going to consume and destroy the Earth's natural resources... and eventually cause the decline of the human species." And, "I remember you saying that you wanted to have kids, but I would seriously think that over (I am definitely never going to reproduce) because of what our planet has to contend with such over-population (competition for resources typically leads to wars, famine, pestilence etc.)"
In addition, he adds that my children will likely suffer from migraines like I do and that the brain tumor my DH had was due to pollution and over population.
He ended the e-mail with, "p.s. like I told you guys a while ago, if you guys have kids, don't even ask us to babysit, answer will be an emphatic No, but once we get a pet friendly apt., we'd be way more than happy to Doggy sit!!!!"
My stomach is in knots. WTH? I'm not feeling angry, just hurt.
I just wanted to share because I'm stunned.
