Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith & Balthazar, are back! We’re sharing more listener e-mails (moderately edited for clarity and length), one of which includes a listener-submitted parent-couple which was chosen as our Asshole(s) of the Week for their bullying behavior! After dissecting the e-mails for more reasons which might fit into Balt’s previous theory that the reasons for breeding come down to two motivations, we get personal. Balt shares some of his reproductive history, his experience with getting a vasectomy and he addresses […]
Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith & Balthazar, share listener submissions from our twitter’s last call to action: “What’s the most metal thing about being childfree?” After a debate as to whether parents put more thought into a vehicle purchase or the financial obligations of parenthood, discover the lucky #entitledbreeder who earned our Asshole of the Week spot. With Listener Mail from Sarah & AndThisStillLife, we share responses from fans including how they’ve experienced bullying behavior from breeders for being childfree as well as some of our favorite tweets since the last episode and exploring the phenomenon of “lawnmower parenting“.
In this episode, Balt suggests every rationale to breed comes down to two reasons; listen to […]
In our last podcast episode, Balt shared an article about adult bullying and hypothesized that this dynamic is an accurate description of how our larger culture and individual parents (or their cliques) treat people in the childfree by choice community. If this theory is correct, let’s look at one of the ways that behavior might manifest.
Labels & Stereotypes
“You’re so selfish and self-absorbed for not having kids.”
“You’ll never know the true meaning of what it is to love someone until you are a parent.”
We’ve heard them all. While we may not have to worry about name-calling quite so much as adults, labels and stereotypes for childfree populations are numerous. We’re told we’re sad, lonely, bereft, and inferior… that our choices, relationships and […]
Join Childfree Loudmouths’ co-hosts, Lilith and Balthazar, as they share some of the stories and responses fellow listeners have shared over the past two weeks! After reviewing some of our other favorite child-free interactions on social media since our debut episode, we’ll talk about who made our Asshole of the Week list. Balt also shares an interesting article on adult bullying and theorizes such bullying behaviors could be attributed to many breeder-populations in their interactions with those who are childfree by choice. What do you think? Do you have experiences in which […]
We all have a story… okay, we all have lots of stories. Some of us have multitudes. The point is, we are an underrepresented demographic of the population and our stories are worthy of being heard. We want to help by sharing our platform and fostering a community which elevates the voices of the childfree community. Share your story with us so we can share it with the world (and yes, we will give you anonymity unless you specifically tell us you want us to use your name).
We’re looking for stories from people who are: […]
Welcome to the Childfree Loudmouths Podcast! Lilith and Balthazar are here to provide you with a safe haven filled with humor, sanity and a total irreverence for the parenting-cult our society supports. Let’s be honest- our culture caters to the “Mommy Bosses,” “Helicopter Parents,” and self-entitled “Breeders” who put less thought, planning and effort into reproducing and raising a child than they do into purchasing a new car and passing a licensing exam.
