We have had many posts on here by women claiming that it upsets them when people mock them for wanting an all natural birth and how they are being judged, how is this any different? Say if I think that a woman wanting a natural birth is wanting one for frivolous reasons, do I have a right to go all judgey mcjudgerson?

Also, a stupid reason is in the eye of the beholder. We live in a society where women are judged on their genitalia, women are meant to be tight and barbie-doll like in order to be perceived as sexually attractive. It is a media perpetuated stereotype that many many women battle with in the form of body dysmorphia. Does anyone have a right to condemn a woman for suffering and being a product of that?
