Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Dear [Insert Deity of Choice Here]

I recently joined childfree in interest of a wank, as I recall, and also because I am single, without children and without the desire for children. Sometimes it's nice to have a place to bitch about things those with progeny inflict on those without.

...no matter.

Today we were met with a tale in which a young woman's family tried to beat her into accepting guardianship for minor children that she did not feel herself able to take (if/when I get permission, I'm going to copy the text of it, but I'll warn you, it's horrifying... also, you can join CF to read it if you wish).

I've a couple of errands to run and will have more to say later, but I am sickened and outraged by this.

There are no words, none, for what was done to this young woman.

I dig my kerfuffles/am also happily confirmed in the not-having of children, but what I've seen of childfree scares me. :) There seem to be not only an exceptional level of constant agitation, but all sorts of categories and philosophical subdivisions. Partnered CF, Unpartnered CF, Militant CF, Live-and-Let-Live CF, I'd Never Breed But Might Consider Adoption CF... I mean, jeepers.

Feels less like a comm than a minefield. Cross the wrong line and kablooey. *g*
