For someone whose only “must have” is a life in which I am interested and that I like, the unsolicited but persistent suggestion that by not having children, I had missed some mythical boat came as quite a shock — especially when the questions wrinkled up their nose in some badly-misguided effort to empathise with the barren creature they saw before them.

Before I got the hang of dealing with these people, it was genuinely alarming when they cornered me.
. . .
So, imagine my relief when I read the latest from the Office of National Statistics (in the United Kingdom): There are more than half-a-million people like me, and so pleased are we with our unmarried, childless lives that we have created a whole new breed of women — the Freemale.
