Christen, I want to personally thank you for Ted talk on your decision not to have children. I have struggled my whole life with the same societal standards, and being made to feel that I was a lesser human for being a woman that does not want biological children. Your talk has made me feel valid, human, and so very empowered. I needed very much to hear every word you said. Thank you so much for putting your vulnerability aside to share your personal experiences and beliefs. It has made a world of a difference for me. Thank you.”
