I read with interest the comments posted on FreeRepublic.com in response to the San Francisco Chronicle article. A few people posted "who cares if these people don’t want kids?" comments, or supported the choice to remain childfree. But most posted mean-spirited comments critical of the choice or directed at Valerie and her cat.
Obviously something about this article prompted them post a comment. However, I suspect it has more to do with them than the childfree.
Scratch each comment and you’ll find an underlying emotion: fear, anger, or just plain delight at the opportunity to cough up some bitter bile that’s been accumulating in their system. To me, they sounded like a bunch of Ann Coulter wanna-bees.
Apparently, in some Republican circles, mean is cool.
