The Childfree Girls Podcast

Three childfree women in three different countries challenge society’s expectations of women as mothers with no-holds-barred conversations and interviews. Hosted by Isabel (Colombia), Kristen (US) and LeNora (Canada).

 What do you know about antinatalism? What perception do you have of antinatalists?

 

 Our guest in this episode is Amanda Sukenick, an actor and writer known for The EFIList (2016), I Am (2009), and Mind Dance (2008). She is also a very active member of the Antinatalist and Efilist communities.

 

 The Childfree Girls sat down with Amanda and asked her several questions that we had after we had watched The EFIList, a short movie released in 2016 and available on YouTube.

 

 Is “life” really necessary? How do we handle living as non-parents in a pronatalist world? Watch our video to find out what we learned.

 It's been one year since the three Founding Non-Mothers of Childfree Girls got together and started posting childfree content online, and we honestly couldn't be happier to celebrate our first anniversary!
 
 The second part of our 2-part special is a conversation between LeNora, Kristen, and Isabel, in which we reflect on our first year together. We also introduce the *fourth* member of CFG, even though most of you might have already noticed her!

From a teenager to a sexagenarian, these ladies opened up about their life as a childfree woman, what they expect for the future, discussed bingos, shared thoughts about growing old, what commitment means to them, and many other topics!

Dr. Kimya Dennis Ph.D. is the founder and owner of 365 Diversity, LLC. In addition to being a criminologist and sociologist, Kimya Nuru Dennis is a childfree-by-choice sociologist invested in sexual rights and freedoms and reproductive rights and freedoms. An expert on various topics, including Childfreedom, Kimya accepted our invitation to come to our show to talk about our reproductive choice through various lenses: a broad sociological point of view; one that was focused on race; and another one that analyzed it through criminology. This conversation is rich and touches on several subjects that cross over what being childfree means. We only scratched the surface and encourage you to dig deeper into these issues.

On this episode, LeNora, Kristen and Isabel kick off the conversation by talking about how sometimes people from our community tone down their childfree happiness around parents because it could be perceived as "gloating".
 
 This topic is followed by a segment in which, after we reminisce about our days in high school, we address the youngest members of the childfree community directly. The Childfree Girls also hope to reach those young men and women who have never even questioned the parenthood issue just to bring awareness to the fact that it is a choice.

Maxine Trump, the director of the documentary "To Kid or Not To Kid", joined the Childfree Girls on this episode to talk about the making of her film and about all the great things that have happened since the premiere.

 

 To Kid Or Not To Kid is a new film that aims to dispel the myth that living childfree is weird, selfish or somehow wrong. In a world where you’re threatened for speaking openly about living childfree, two women, from different decades, search for ways to support each other in making the decision to live without kids.

 

 If you haven't watched it yet, we highly recommend it! If you'd like to know more about this film, visit Maxine's website here: https://www.tokidornottokid.com/

Tom James, the author of "Your Children Are Boring: or How Modern Parents Ruin Everything", agreed to come as a guest to our show to talk about his book. We talked about how all parents think their kid is special, about losing your identity when you have a baby and about what we found out later is referred to as "sharenting" (the overuse of social media by parents to share content based on their children), among other things.

It's one of the most recurring debates in the Childfree community: if you don't want kids because of the responsibility and the burden, shouldn't you NOT want pets either? Kristen and Isabel have pets, LeNora is pet-free by choice. Join us as we talk about what it entails to own a furry companion, the good and the bad. We also voice our opinions on the terms "furbaby", "dog mom" and everything in between.
