    Childless and childfree women come in lots of shapes and sizes. We are all colors, all cultures, and all ages. As much as we have in common, we are also very different. Some people say it is strange to define ourselves by things that we are not, so let’s determine what we are instead. In […]

    In this blog, I hope to give you pointers to stop any confrontation to remain childfree by choice. Remember, most of the time, people will mean well. They chose to have children. Many of them are happy. The ones who aren’t will rarely tell you that but want you to suffer along. Remember: 1.Your goal isn’t to defend a personal choice. Just like parents are rarely made to defend their choice, neither should you. A simple statement saying you prefer the childfree -by -choice lifestyle is all that’s necessary. Don’t go into details or pronounce how much you love kids when…

  • A FASCINATING READ, IN MY OPINION!

    http://aeon.co/magazine/nature-and-cosmos/pregnancy-is-a-battleground-between-mother-father-and-baby/ My facebook book site was temporarily closed down today not allowing me to post or comment. I feel Facebook slapped my hands saying the above article, “doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards”. In my opinion, it was closed because of some ignorant person who perceived that article as a slap to the Madonna myth. Read the article for yourself. See why, more than ever, pronatalism is alive and well and must be brought to the attention of others.
  • Reflecting on Lifetime Contributor Award to Childfreedom

    hometownnewsPostedReceiving any award is always an ago boost. When I heard the International Committee for International Childfree Day (August 1, 2014) chose me for their inaugural “Lifetime Contributor Award”, I had mixed emotions. Why wasn’t I honored as their, “Woman of The Year”? Did they give me this as a pity party knowing I faced cancer  this year?  Finally, the word “Lifetime” made me feel old! Then I re-thought the whole thing. It’s an honor! I’m proud and feel excited to be worthy of this first time recognition.  When I think…

    Mother’s Day In America By Marcia Drut-Davis Before I share some heartfelt emotions, I want to honor those mothers, grandmothers and aunts who devote their lives to their children, grandchildren nieces or nephews. There are many deserving of adoration. How lucky for those children! Sadly, in my opinion, the Mother’s Day celebration in America is another example of the dangers of pronatalism. It exalts the status of being a mother to something short of being a saint. Just the mere mention of the revered word “mother’ makes many swoon with love and joy. It discounts the many hearts…

    The Gifts of Cancer By Marcia Drut-Davis Before I share my gifts, I must state having cancer or any other serious illness is awful. I will never say it’s a walk in the park. My heart goes out to brave survivors fighting any serious disease and to the people loving and supporting them.  That being said I’ve experienced many gifts of having cancer. I was diagnosed the day after Christmas. It was a shock. I’m still in shock after having had a very healthy life to this age of 71. How could this happen? I ate well, exercised and faithfully took care of my body, mind and spirit. My nephew…

  • Child-Free Mythology: The Story of Persephone

    Karen M Wright
    19 Sep 2014 | 4:28 am
    By Laura LaVoie Many world religions have a distinct bias toward parents. It makes sense from a sociological level. The more children born into a specific faith, the faster that faith can spread out of its indigenous region. However, while some women without children find comfort in these religions, others reject them all together. This […]
