2004 Revisited - Does Motherhood Make You A Woman?
Why do people insist on promoting gender stereotypes based on parenthood?
Surviving Mother's Day
Obviously, Mother�s Day can be stressful for the childfree by choice or circumstance. It helps to reflect on the origins of Mother�s Day to defuse some of its irritating power.
Compassion for Animals is Not Neurosis
Ever wonder why people devoted to caring for pets and animals (other than human) are repeatedly typecast as pathologically needy? This is especially true for childfree pet owners, and even more so for women.
Childfree Women Growing in Number
It's comforting to know - in spite of mass media marketers' depiction of women as robot-dolls eagerly awaiting programming by the newest trend - there are women out there carefully considering how childbearing choices impact their lives and the world.

More Myths of Parental Enlightenment
I was dismayed to hear a respected and favorite author in a recent radio interview cite children as the path to self-knowledge, spirituality and recovery. This a large burden to place on children and, once again, suggests that childfree people lack love, self-knowledge and enlightenment.

This story about the recent breakup of a friends' long-term marriage illustrates the need to communicate with your partner about your childfree lifestyle and attitudes - no matter how long you've been married!
A Childfree Lifestyle is Good for the Planet
I sometimes think nature provides for a certain percentage of the population to remain childfree, just to keep the world sane and balanced.
Childfree Artist Couples
A glimpse beyond popular rhetoric reveals that some of the most enduring artistic icons of modern culture were created by couples who deliberately opted not to produce children. Couples in which both partners are equally serious about producing art are most often childfree.
