The Childless and Godless

This is a group to discuss the joy of being childless! I am amazed at the number of atheists I have met over the past few years that are childless by choice, here is a place to discuss stories and experiences!

To child-free, Andrea, add god-free.

I always prefer to use the word "child-free." "Childless" to me sounds like you're lacking something.

I am so happy. Now whatever happens in the world, if birth control is unavailable due to economic collapse or republican rule, I will never be forced to have a kid. It's the only way to guarantee it.

And I sure am glad to never take depo-provera again. The side effects were horrible.

Welcome to the "fixed" club !
There's a bunch of us 'fixed" who discuss this theme on the VHMT Facebook page too, mostly atheists there as well, though there are a couple of mildly religious folks, very mildly. The VHEMT are an interesting bunch.
So you've got a couple of days of calm healing ahead of you. Take care :)

There have been conversations here about depressed parents not being good parents. Personally, I stand by it. A truly depressed person is dysfunctional in society, and that is certainly not what is needed to raise a functional child. Depressed persons are low on energy, have issues with emotional stability, have difficulty establishing relationships, have difficulty with tasks, etc. Being myself one of these, and having been in treatment groups with many other such people... it's definitely best we don't have children. Was I a depressed child? is that why I've ALWAYS known I did not want children... maybe, no one can tell for sure. But I value my depression and what it makes me, my sad feelings I am convinced are related to the fact that we Homo sapiens have really fucked up planet Earth and most of humanity is more excited by power, money, materialism and living forever than enjoying nature as it is, and being ok with death as a natural part of the cycle of life, and living a balanced life, instead of a life of constant economic growth. Yes I am put off by humanity, especially the 95% of positivist faithers, including Humanists, out there who insist that everything a human does is "beautiful", BS.

Oh good.  I thought I had missed something.

Where was the judgment of people with depression? I love it when people specifically look for ways to be outraged and offended.

The complete abscence of empathy combined with judgemental stereotyping of those of us with depression as "unfit" parents is very sickening. I would suggest that someone that displays the traits of a compassionless arsehole, as some have displayed in these comments,

is someone who is truly "unfit" to be a parent. Those of us who suffer depression, particularly as a result of abuse, are more likely than the general population to have elevated levels of empathy and a strong motivation to protect our children from what we went through making us better parents than the average person. This is backed up by psychological research. So stop thinking in stereotypes you ignorant, nasty scum.

wow, that sucks, hang in there, and don't take on all her burden, unless you really want to. I've often felt that way through the years as my BFF raised her child. He's turning into a teen now, the cards have been dealt, things land where they land.
