Hey lovely lady friends! A few of you had ish with this post, which of course you’re welcome to do, the whole point of this blog is about women with all kinds of identities getting to express voice, and obviously not everyone is going to agree with me all the time. I just wanted to clarify that the intention of this joke was not to skewer the beautiful joy and love that couples share, which I certainly think is amazing — but rather the absurdity of the wedding industrial complex that tells women that unless you spend all your time/money making wedding favors that are *slightly* different from everyone else’s, you’re getting married wrong. My opinion: have a party! get married! celebrate your love! I’m just not convinced that a party favor is anything more than a party favor, know what I mean? Smooches!

Being a single person and being forced to hear about wedding plans until your ears bleed.
Being a person who hasn’t had kids (by choice or not) in a conversation about how satisfying motherhood is.
I could go on… what are your examples?
