Hi, I'm new to the board. I'm from Dallas, in my 50s. It's possible a couple of you might recognize my name from another childfree board I moderate. I am not here to post the link, so please moderators, don't worry. I'm here because that board never quite recovered from the owner "retiring" and having to have a name change, after which Google never listed it in searches. There's still a couple of people who visit daily, but it's pretty dead for the most part, and I miss how great it was when it was really going well, so I'm looking for a new haven!
I have two rescue dogs and a rescue cat who is ancient. I like rock music and going out to eat with friends. I was enjoying cooking until I began working two jobs. I recently returned from a river trip in the Texas Hill Country that was brief but refreshing. I read and watch TV when I have time. I work at home and at an office and work far too much for far little money. I'm sure many of you can relate.
Glad to see a nice healthy childfree message board. I was beginning to think Facebook killed the message board!
I'm a 37 year-old female, no biological kids. I've been raising my two stepkids for over five years, though. I'm childFree (biologically) by choice and design. I married the love of my life and just happened to be damn good at the whole step-parenting thing, but it doesn't hurt that the kids are great.
I still belong on this board, though; I can GUARANTEE that.
People who have kids for selfish reasons, or for not thinking, or because they're sheeple following the LifeScript (tm) make me sick. I'm a frequenter of STFU, Parents and I have a front-row seat as a witness for what narcissistic mothering looks like. I've worked in elementary schools and that right there was proof positive that birth control should be put in the water (parents' fault, not the kids' fault.)
Anyway, I won't drone on. I hope this wine-soaked introduction hasn't already soured anyone toward me. I also hope this board will help me get out some of the utter hatred I feel towards the ignorance of humanity

I have been reading this forum for years, but finally decided to become a member when I wanted to post a reply to the childfree article that was on Slate this past week. Unfortunately my activation email went straight to my junk forlder, so it took me a little extra time to be active.
A little about me. I'm 40 (will be 41 in October, yipes!), married for almost six years to my husband, together for 11. Thought that mught be changing (long story). Born and raised in Boston, now live north of the city. I look youger than my age, as I was carded last week buying wine. I still look like the same goth/metal girl I was in high school. In fact I'm going to the Iron Maiden show this week. I'm HUGE fan.
Couple of other little things about me. Liberal, pro-equality, pro-choice, Wiccan, outspoken and...Childfree!!
Hello, I'm a 31 year old married woman living in Connecticut, currently in grad school trying to finish my PhD. I've known I didn't want children since my early twenties and I've been lucky enough to marry a wonderful man who feels the same way.
I've been enjoying reading the posts on this site and I look forward to hanging out here
