Man Asks Child-Free Millennials What They’ll Do After 40 And Boy Did People Answer (20 Tweets)


A recent tweet absolutely sent me seething and I bet it will do the same to you too. It’s callous, rude, and condescending. And sexist! It’s got everything.


“Millennials who are very cavalier about not having children are in for a shock when they enter their 40s & realize life is only half over,” an asshole named Shane Morris tweeted. He also said he “expects to see a lot of sadness & confusion about what to do at that point.

This floated across my feed a few days ago and I’ll say to you what I proclaimed to the world:
