A human being does not have the privilege or responsibility to control anyone's life except their own. What is in the Bible is what God said, not me, not you. So, He is the final and ultimate judge, not me, not you.
We spend so much time trying to figure out what other people are doing that's against what is in the Bible, we don't focus properly on what we ourselves are doing that is against the Bible. This results in judging (condemning) others' behaviors, and denying or making excuses for our own, and/or those we love, like, admire, who have fame, fortune, or who might benefit us in some way.
Unfortunately, we have a tendency to interpret the Bible as it suits us. Just one present example is the group at the church that was hell bent on burning the Koran. And let's not forget the Bible Belt which is the most racist section of the nation.
We need to remember that love of God and love of our fellow man is the first and greatest Commandment. If we could do that, a whole lot of our problems would be solved.
As they say, "First things, first."

It has been MY obsevation that society in general (African-Americans in particular) doesn't seem to care much if a woman is in her thirties or so and doesn't have children. They'll say she hasn't found the right guy, or is career or goal oriented. However if a man of that age has no children, regardless of what his reasons , he is almost always suspected to be gay.

What is hillarious to me is how people think we single women can just run over to Target on our lunch break and pick up a man. If it were that easy, we would have done it. Being a single mother is hard work and everyone is not cut out for it. I know that I am not. I would have preferred to get married and have children, but the "married" part never happened so.... I am single and childless....and moving on with my life.

Target is definitely the wrong retail outlet. May I suggest GameStop or Bass Pro Outlet?

The sad thing is that waiting to get married to have children has become so passe among some. I have an older sister in her late 50's with 3 adult kids in their 20s, but no grandchildren. She is often asked about grandchildren by coworkers, old classmates, etc. Her answer is that aren't any of her children married. Believe it or not, her response will often offend people.

In the blogs, seven or eight centre around Ms. Mayer, pregnant corporate superstar. Hmm...

In some families wombs are the common property of the family. Just as bad, I was raised with words from my mother on how horrible children were, never have children blah blah blah. As far as no kids equals lesbian? Huh? Are these women living in the dark ages?

I find this particularly funny and timely given that I just spent the day with my uncle, mother, brother, sister-in-law, and toddler niece and nephew. Had a great day with the family but almost couldn't hold it together from laughing when my uncle took me aside and asked when it was my turn to "add to the family". We were looking at lots of family pics of all my cousins who have LOTS of kids and grandkids who are from various marriages, relationships, one-offs, etc. I simply smiled and said that I wanted to add a husband to the family first---and went right back to enjoying the family pictures and memories. And after a nice visit, I was happy to carry my 39 year old behind home to my cockapoo!.....LOL

JUST BECAUSE

JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO REALIZE WHAT A GOLD MINE YOU ARE, DOESN`T MEAN YOU SHINE ANY LESS.
JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS BEEN SMART ENOUGH TO FIGURE OUT THAT YOU CAN`T BE TOPPED, DOESN`T STOP YOU FROM BEING THE BEST.

JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS COME ALONG TO SHARE YOUR LIFE, DOESN`T MEAN THAT DAY ISN`T COMING.
JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS MADE THIS RACE WORTHWHILD, DOESN`T GIVE YOU PERMISSION TO STOP RUNNING.

JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS REALIZED HOW MUCH OF AN AWESOME WOMAN YOU ARE, DOESN`T MEAN THEY CAN AFFECT YOUR FEMININITY.
JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS COME TO TAKE THE LONELINESS AWAY, DOESN`T MEAN YOU HAVE TO SETTLE FOR A LOWER QUALITY

JUST BECAUSE NO ONE HAS SHOWN UP WHO CAN LOVE YOU ON YOUR LEVER, DOESN`T MEAN YOU HAVE TO SINK TO THEIRS.
JUST BECAUSE YOU DESERVE THE BEST THERE IS, DOESN`T MEAN THAT LIFE IS ALWAYS FAIR.

JUST BECAUSE GOD IS STILL PREPARING YOUR KING, DOESN`T MEAN THAT YOU`RE NOT ALREADY A QUEEN.
JUST BECAUSE YOUR SITUATION DOESN`T SEEM TO BE PROGRESSING RIGHT NOW, DOESN`T MEAN YOU NEED TO CHANGE A THING.

KEEP SHINING, KEEP RUNNING, KEEP HOPING AND KEEP PRAYING,
KEEP BEING EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE ALREADY......COMPLETE!

On the flip side, I wish people would update their perception of lesbians. Just because same gender loving women date women...that doesn't mean they don't get married/committed and they don't have children. Some of these single moms you see running in the streets are gay, gay, gay (or bisexual). You don't have to be str8 to make a baby. You don't have to be str8 to be in a committed relationship either.

She's simply not willing to settle for any man that comes along,erroneously thinking she'll change him into who he needs. I applaud her, heck, I AM her. Too many women do not set the standards for how they're treated, accepting bad behavior and even abuse with the thinking that's what they deserve or the best they can do It's not. Be in a relationship because you want to be not because you need to be.
