Advice Column Redux: Still Rude to Prosteletize Parenting.

Infertile Couple Sick of Question
When someone asks when you are going to have children, the polite shut-down is, "I can't imagine why you need to know such personal information."
This both points out the general rudeness of bugging people to have kids (it might be a medical problem) and points out that it would be rude even if it was a choice ("Since when is it a crime not to have children?") Kudos to the distraught, childless, writer for recognizing that.

This launches the new "advice" label; as the third appearance of childfree questions in such columns posted here. Of course, there are countless instances of relevant questions, see Childfree Abby for more.
