bywater : I think ideally there is a separate place for each of these groups.  They don’t belong together, they aren’t compatible.

groomsister35 :  “You’ll find that some CFBC people are incredibly militant. Some are anti natalists and others actually HATE children as well as parents. I can see why all of that bitterness would be off putting.”

This is the culture I have found on the dedicated CFBC forums I have checked out.  I want nothing to do with that.  Which is more reason I’d like a proper sub forum here.  That ugly stuff won’t happen here.  Even if mods are lacking, it’s just not the culture here and if/when it did crop up we would self correct, I believe.

twentytwenty :  That has nothing to do with me. I’ve never told someone they might change their minds, nor would I. If someone doesn’t want children, they should not be told otherwise. Exclusionary mind sets are likely the reason the subforum CFBC has not been created thus far. Because then they’d have people trying to dictate what CFBC users are allowed, and which ones aren’t. That’d lead to a lot of people warring back and forth over who should be there and who shouldn’t and the Bee probably doesn’t want to have to police that.

bywater :  cfbc means childfree by choice. If you don’t have children because of a medical issues than that’s not really by choice. They can hang around the childfree board because there are issues that affect us all but they have to understand that for the majority of people, being childfree is a positive thing.  I think that attitude could make the childless feel bad. As long as they’re ok with people celebrating what they’re mourning.

I think that’s a good idea, it will give you what you are looking for

I don’t pay much attention to which board the topic is posted to, but, there is one thread making the rounds that starts with CFBC bees. As obnoxious as it might be for you, if it’s right in the title, the “bingoes” (accidental stumblers on the threads in most cases, I really don’t think people seek out CFBC threads to rub parenthood in your faces) won’t click on it.

I saw CFBC in the title and didn’t open it.
