Yes. And, since most editors are/were writers, read their work, too.
I've been writing magazine and newspaper articles about sex & gender for 15+ years. My advice and reminder to all new writers: The people you're pitching are people. Get to know them.
I remember a PR agency once pitched me on a children's book about frogs. Not about sex. Not about gender. Just a general children's book.

A different take? While living on an overpopulated planet with limited resources & orphaned children, choosing to procreate is quite possibly the most selfish thing that anyone could do.
FWIW, I don't actually think that parents are inherently selfish. I also don't think that #childfree people are inherently selfish. The decision to have children or not to have children is personal, and it's not on anyone to make a judgment call either way.
Btw, just because someone doesn't have children of their own doesn't mean they haven't spent a significant portion of their life caring for, financially supporting, and/or raising another human. #Children #childfree

Okay, just watched the playback. Yep, it's lagged. Will tweak that next week. That aside .... NICE!!! Didn't realize how much terrain was covered. Hence, why I watched the replay; needed to remember which links I said I'd drop.
Here we go! Interesting shit for your radar re: #COVID19 and #SexualHealth ...
.@okcupid suggested I should remove my geographic restrictions and talk to sexy people around the world. So, I did. 🌏 Went on a "date" with a man in Holland. 🇳🇱

#Childfree & #paidleaveforall communities can coexist. ❤ It's possible to be inclusive about the word "family".
Everyone should have the freedom to define family for themselves. ❤

✔ Instead of time off for "birth", time off for "care"
✔ Instead of "newborn child" or
"family member", how about "loved one"

2 @gatewaywomen: the shame of #childlessness is a powerful tool for keeping us apart: it prevents conversation, community, it creates separation, isolation, stigma and vilification #StoryhouseChildless @StoryhouseLive
3 @gatewaywomen: #abortion is the 'taboo within the taboo' of #childlessness #Storyhouse

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to
