She wanted to be asked so she could say no. It's a bizarre show of respect.

She deserves it. When my twin sister had a baby she knew very well I'm no godmother material and asked a close friend. I didn't complain, I very much so support her decision.

And then rant about being asked on r/childfree for easy karma

See? It's a win-win-win! Outrage seems to be the favorite emotion currently. People love the opportunity to vent righteous indignation. If they can't rant about being child-free, they can at least rant about your snub.

I'd point out all that... she deserves it... sorry she's being a bitch.

You can have more than one god mother! Ask her!

Doubt that she'd want "sloppy seconds" though....

Your friend is behaving exactly like the CINC. Woe to you! :-(

You did nothing wrong. Hopefully she gets over it, otherwise she’s not a very good friend.

Sounds like a win.
