Infertility is not funny.

It's not funny that the lady has five people looking up her skirt at one time. It is not funny that the guy has to go "perform" in a little room of second-rate porn. It is not funny when a couple doubts their chances of having a child. It is not funny that people have sex every day for months and don't conceive.

Just like rape is not funny (although, I know that's a losing battle), infertility is not funny. The only time it can be treated as such is when it is also treated as heartbreaking, a la Forget Paris. Infertility just for laughs is cheap and demeaning.

Thought you ought to know.
