In response to the article, Huffington Post’s Margaret Wheeler Johnson, commended Time for the article.

In “… a culture that has for years accepted parenthood as synonymous with adulthood, especially for women, and cast the childfree as somehow deficient, the piece is long overdue,” Johnson writes in her post, The Childfree Are All Right – Yes, Someone Needed to Say It.

However, some are criticizing Time for ‘sending the wrong message.’
