Preface: If you're going to discuss the topic, please be civil about it, I hate seeing snobtastic parents bash the CF as if they're the bane of their existence. It's not that big of a deal honestly. Hey all; curious to see if there's any other Child Free people in BC. For those who don't understand what Child Free is, it's when you don't want kids at all whatsoever be it naturally, either because they can't (naturally sterile), or the person is Tokophobic (Fear of Pregnancy or Child Birth), or via Adoption or what have you. Some think it's foolish/selfish, but I highly disagree. In today's current society, the cost of Food, Rent/Mortgage (mainly this tbh), and what have you is astronomically, insanely high, especially in places/metropolises such as Vancouver; and I think people (especially those who are Single and live alone) need every penny earned to live, and keep food on the table, clothes on their back, and a roof over their head. Plus you have pocket money for things you want/need which is a huge plus, like Vacations, even if it's a short 3 hour drive getaway for the day. Another huge peeve of those that are Child Free are their families. Many want them to "carry on the family name" or "try to make history" or some shit like that. Honestly, there's millions/thousands of people with the last name Johnson, or Van-Dyke, etc. etc., you get the picture I'm sure), so, who gives a flying fuck about "carrying on the family name"? The surname ain't that special. Another is Religion, which is natural. Many have broken away from their faith or disregard certain aspects of their faith (procreation is obviously one of them) only to be shamed/put down by their Family, which is understandable, but also extremely saddening. I personally love it where I see people post that their family is completely understanding in their CF choice. Hopefully no offense was created; if you are/were, I'm sorry you felt offended.
