Do you think a woman should be 'deemed insane' because she doesn't want a daughter?

I read this asanine statement on a mother's myspace About Me section. Sure, everyone is entitled to their own opinion..but what a bitchtastic remark.

  • You can express your love for your daughter without insulting other people which in essence is what happened.

  • Why would a woman be foolish and selfish for not wanting a daughter? I have three boys and have no desire to try for a girl.

  • I have one child of each sex, and there are days I would gladly ship my daughter off to Grandma until she's 18! Maybe she was having a tough day???!
