In fact, I find their position perplexing on many layers (and I'm not just talking about their upcoming fall collection). The fashion industry is always about pushing the envelope. They want us to embrace the unusual, applaud the unexpected and buy into the outrageous. And yet, two of the men in fashion's front row refuse to think outside of the box when it comes to designing a family?
I'm not saying you have to agree with anyone's decisions to pursue their fertility options. If you feel it's wrong, that's your choice and means that you should not go through treatment. But to impose your beliefs on anyone, to dismiss children that are already here on this earth, should not be tolerated.
In my humble opinion, this condemnation of the egg freezing benefit is cynical and ridiculous. Why can't we just be grateful for companies wanting to offer coverage of an expensive out-of-pocket healthcare procedure and, even more importantly, provide women with more options about what to do with their bodies?
It's spring and everything's blooming except me. To make matters worse, wherever I look, I see eggs: Easter eggs, chocolate eggs, bunnies in baskets atop Cadbury eggs. It's a conspiracy. I wouldn't be so paranoid if the holidays didn't remind me of my own eggs, the ones in my fallopian tubes. Unlike Mother Nature who is working overtime, my reproductive system is on strike.
