I’m a feminist. So why does infertility make me feel like a failure? | Katy Lindemann | Opinion | The Guardian
So I’ve decided that I’ve had enough of feeling guilty that I’m a crap feminist for buying into entrenched social norms; guilty that I’ve allowed my infertility to subsume every other aspect of my identity. It’s not my fault that my reproductive organs don’t work. And it’s not my fault that I feel such distress at an intangible and indefinite loss, for a child that never was – a disenfranchised grief for which no mourning rituals exist. I’m an infertile feminist, and I’m resolving to stop feeling conflicted over the grief I feel about that.
