"Why don't you have any kids?" might seem like innocuous small talk. But for a lot of people, it's an incredibly uncomfortable question to answer.
A Canadian woman named Lisa Marie shared why the question makes her so uncomfortable earlier this week. Her tweets about it have gone viral.
She started by tweeting a sample conversation.
In the conversation, she explains that although she doesn't have kids, she has had seven miscarriages. She notes that disclosing your history of miscarriages to another person can make them uncomfortable. But the point is that the question shouldn't even be happening in the first place.
