Are children a "lifestyle choice"?

Having talked this through, I think when my friend refers to other people's "lifestyle choices" I am less annoyed by the term itself than the implication that all "lifestyle choices" are equally deserving of societal and workplace support.

I'm with you all the way Lambjam. A biological imperative is not a lifestyle choice. To me, that is something people say when their latte has been interrupted by a crying baby, a way of dismissing or diminishing children and the people who *breed* them.

How is it NOT a choice? Whether you think it's a more valid/natural choice is irrelevant. If you have the ability to make a decision between the options then how can it not be a choice?
That statement's also completely unfair. There are plenty of people here (myself included) who see children as a lifestyle choice, and have chosen to have children. Calling something a choice doesn't mean you value it any less - only that you're acknowledging that somewhere along the line that person had other options.
