I don't. I don't want to attract any vandalism and it's not something I feel the need to broadcast. (And I've always thought those stick figures are a way to advertise to burglars. I'd be even more wary with one that has money bags on it.) I'm honest with my choice when asked, but unless asked it doesn't generally factor into my daily life.

I am with the others who have said they don't want to do anything to their vehicles that would attract vandalism and burglary. I was a victim of that once many years ago and it's a horrible feeling. I have an alumni sticker from my undergrad university on one of my vehicles, but that's it.
A few months ago on my way to work, I saw an SUV with the license plate "LAX KIDS". It made me laugh, but I remember thinking that person has some balls to display that publicly.
Oh.. I see. This seems to be more of a passive child free community. Nothing wrong with that.
Yes most child free folks are fine with kids, they just don't want any. I on the other hand find children and birth, disgusting and repulsive. So I guess one could say I hate kids. When we go out to eat, we ask to be seated AWAY from children. In fact, if the place we choose to eat at has a basket of crayons near the host stand, we leave.
I have no problem with people confronting me with regards to my CF bumper stickers, in fact I welcome it. Open discussion is a good way to help other people understand your views regardless of what those views may be, and my stickers get the ball rolling. There's nothing wrong with expressing your beliefs or personal choices. Like religion, believe what you want, just don't tell me to believe in the same dogma....on the same token, I don't care if others have/want kids just don't tell me I need to have them.

my two-seater, solid wardrobe, and physical fitness is my display... I don't want to ruin my car's paint with a bumper sticker, but if I had to choose one, it would be something like "I Love Population Control" or similar.
I probably display my anti-religious views more publicly, like with T-shirts that say "you keep believing, I'll keep evolving" or large Darwin fish eating a small creationism fish.
I'm not a bumper-sticker person (mostly because my vehicle has outlived the few stickers she ever had on her and peeling stickers are not a good look) but I figure our cars speak loud enough on their own - mine is old going on vintage and is probably incompatible with any car seat on the market. Lap belts only in the back. So no one sees her and thinks she's a mom mobile. DH has a two door with only nominal backseats that would be hell to wrangle a carseat into so no kids in there!
On a side note, one reason we were so happy to buy DH's car is that the salesman never even brought up the possibility of carseats. Roadtrips, yes. Carseats, no. Good salesman.

Over here people only put stickers in the back windows, where they'll show through the glass... I am missing something? Express my disdain for children? If only!!! That said, I won't hide my unwillingness to have kids, and am not impressed in the least by parenting antics.
Funnily enough, the car in the cartoon with the moneybags is a Lexus (RX 330). I was just sitting behind one at a light this afternoon. It's the vehicle of choice for a certain segment of the Mommy market here...
I have to say I like the "man, woman, lots of money" sticker on the car on the right. But I don't use my car to advertise my CF status. There are no bumper stickers or window stickers on either of our cars, except for alumni stickers from the college we attended. The cars "advertise" our CF status in what they lack: car seats, toys/snacks/empty juice boxes littering the back seat, back-seat DVD players, a third row of seats for the brood or the carpool, dents and dings caused by distracted driving because the children won't shut up... you get the idea.
