Maybe some "childrun" are the "fewcha"

Nothing rankles the childfree quite the way the statement "but children are the future!".

It is used among a barrage of other annoying and frankly insulting statements designed to make us change our minds, give in and and say..."fuck, yeah sure, let's have kids".

It is predominantly used by less educated and less achieved breeders as a means to give their crappy and empty lives meaning.

They have to believe that, by just popping out a sprog, that they've somehow "done something".

"Children are the future. I've had a children. Therefore I am helping. Therefore I am better than you."

Sorry folks. Raising a good citizen of the planet entails more work than just spitting out a baby.

And let's face it. It is lots of hard work. A factor that is not lost on the childfree who regularly cite that work as unpleasant and totally undesirable.

It is also worth pointing out that the global population is ageing and those folks, us - who aren't young, can't be left off the hook for what is going on around the world today. TODAY! Not "the fewcha". Action today is what will shape the future.

Not just spawning and hoping.

So the whole "childrun are da fewcha" thing really pisses me, and other CF people, off.

But this week, in Australia, school children all over the country went on strike to demand our politicians do something about climate change.

Fucking brilliant. Seriously, no sarcasm there. It is wonderful.

One young woman on TV summed it up quite nicely:

"What's the point of going to school when there's unlikely to be a habitable planet in 10 years time?"

Some of Australia's douche-bag politicians, and let's face it that is most of them, chastised the children and told them they should be back in school because they were ignorant.

One politician actually said words to the effect of "kids should stay in school and learn about coal mining because that is actually interesting". Fuck you mate. Fuck you hard!!

What a bunch of cunts the politicians are.

These kids are smarter than the politicians by a long way.

And that isn't the only example 2018 gave us.

Kids in the USA went on strike over gun reform. Again, brilliant!

What has changed?
Not much if anything.

It has been my contention for a long, long time that the only way these global things get fixed is by educating children and young people properly and waiting for the intractable old farts to fuck off and die.

The old farts rarely change their mind and think they know better.

It is easy not to care about the planet when you are about to leave it fairly soon.

It does my heart good to see that some children today are indeed the future. Good luck kids, you're gonna need it.

It is a long way to Tipperary...

...but it sounds worth it!

The article here https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/people/meet-the-man-who-bans-children-from-his-tipperary-cafe-1.3690925 outlines how this "monster" of a man runs HIS business and children aren't allowed in.

Yay! :-)
I do find it amusing and very annoying that children can seemingly only be banned from a premises if it is for their own good.

I suppose it isn't all that surprising with parents of the world currently of a mind that it is everyone else's responsibility to raise and look after their kids.

Putting money where your child-free mouth is


If you fancy putting money where your child-free mouth is, then this Kickstarter campaign may be what you are looking for :-)

The film makers say:

"We are currently making a documentary about the childfree life and the stigma childfree people face every day. The film examines the struggle one particular woman faces as she makes the decision to live childfree, and features interviews with childfree people all over the world.
The film is nearly finished, but we need some help. We're currently running a Kickstarter to help us complete the final stages of production and are very close to our funding goal - which we need to reach by April 21st. If you could help us at all in getting the word out about the project we would be so grateful!

Thank you so much" Aifric Ni Chriodain

Life as a woman with no children in Australian society project

Thank you for your support recruiting women for the Life as a woman with no children in Australian society project in 2014 and 2015. 

A total of 776 women aged 25 to 44 years was recruited and 294 women aged 45 to 64 years. A summary of findings is available from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Life-in-Australian-society-as-a-woman-with-no-children/592205344191162 or by contacting one of the research team.

We are now conducting a follow up research project to explore life in Australian society for women with no children aged 65 years or more. This time we hope to recruit at least 200 women with no children aged 65 years or more living in Australia, to complete an anonymous online questionnaire or a self-administered postal questionnaire.

If you have any queries, please contact me at taylor.n@deakin.edu.au, Dr Melissa Graham at melissa.graham@deakin.edu.au, or Professor Ann Taket at ann.taket@deakin.edu.au.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

A species in plague proportions kills one of a species in danger of extinction

Sometimes things happen that really, REALLY make it hard for me to tolerate our species.

This week an extremely rare and beautiful animal was killed because an extremely common and poorly parented animal happened to get too close to it.

A species in plague proportions chose to kill one of a species in danger of extinction.

Are we fucking mad? The answer seems obvious.

Today on Australian news there was a report of a woman being taken by a crocodile.

Two women, walking arm in arm, hip deep in a river in the far north of Australia, where crocodiles fucking live, was taken. Why anyone is surprised is beyond me.

Anyone with half a brain cell knows that IS HOW crocodiles operate and that IS WHERE crocodiles are!

To me this seems like natural selection at work. But Australians have a long history of thinking that killing animals will spread some message of warning to the other animals to stop eating humans. We do it with sharks, Dingos, and Crocodiles to name a few. But we stop short of culling the biggest killer on our planet (after mosquitoes obviously).

One of Australia's moronic, obnoxious and stupid, stupid politicians, Bob Catter, has suggested that we should go out and hunt more crocodiles to stop this happening.

I suggest we go out and hunt more humans to stop this happening.

We have become far too tolerant of idiots, racists, bigots, morons, and plain fools and they are running the planet.

What can we do people?

Democracy is broken. It is a broken game and stupid people get to vote too.

We need something else because, until then, nothing will change.

Don't worry, we are still here...kind of...

Hi all,

It has been ages since I posted to this page so I thought I'd better do something to move the last sweary and aggressive sounding post down a bit :-)

As with much of the world, we are now doing most of our posting and interactions on Facebook.

We are nearly at 4000 likes, and that is "organic" likes. We have bought any fake likes or anything daft like that.

Real people really liking it.

I think that is great.


This page will remain as the primary source of archived articles and links. So feel free to browse through as well as "Like" our Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you.
