I'm angry and it might be irrational...but the more I think about it the more I think it's justified.

I'm angry that anyone thinks they have a right to an opinion about my health, my choices, my body.

Since when did being pregnant mean that anyone other than myself - and the father of my child - gets a say in what I choose to do?

Since when is it anyone else's business what I choose to do or when?

Why in the name of all that is holy do acquaintences think they can ask when I'm getting induced...why can they assume that's what is happening and that it's their business...why can they have a discussion about my body without my participation, and why the fuck can they medicalize my experience? They make assumptions and assertions without the knowledge and information that only myself and my actual medical advisors have as if they are experts because they're studying medicine. Because they've been pregnant.

The arrogance is so unintentional but it is still absolute fucking arrogance.

Why shouldn't I be pissed about that?

And why am I even remotely concerned about offending them and hurting their feelings?
