Wonka said before opening the door to the main room that you can eat “almost anything” in the room. Wonka never said “except the chocolate river; that’s off limits.” Augustus is in a room where people are eating teacups, people are eating giant mushrooms, etc. And he takes a drink from a chocolate river. It’s totally in line with the vibe of the room to drink from that river. How could he know not to do this unless told not to?!?
I'm childfree. I love kids and I spoil my niece but my wife is disabled and I choose to put her care first. We don't have the time or emotional bandwidth available to care for a third person. So it's the two of us.
Recently, I started looking into childfree spaces on Reddit to see if there was a supportive community for someone like me.
Oh. My. God. The subreddit is supposedly 75% women but they're out here calling other women "breeders" and "broodmares." They mock pregnant and postpartum bodies and spread misinformation about birth and pregnancy. Some women tear when they have kids, but they don't all get a "vagasshole" from giving birth. They don't all lose all their hair and teeth and age ten years. Not every man is an unwilling father who got "baby trapped" into having kids.
They slut-shame single moms and assume a woman should have seen a divorce coming ten years early.
And when you call them out on their shit, they say it's not valid to call them misogynists even though all they do is hate on women who chose to do something different than they did.
Women CAN be misogynists, but we shouldn't be.
Edit: To the people who say that I "don't get" the sub or lack nuance: I'm in a lesbian relationship, and my mom still asks me all the time if we're going to adopt or get a sperm donor someday. I get societal pressure on women to procreate. Maybe doubly so because I'm LGBTQ and also ducked the system that way. You can hate the system oppressing you without hating women who make different choices than you.
Edit 2: to the people who recommended truechildfree, I'm looking into other spaces where I would be a better fit, but I wanted to make this post to point out what I saw in the regular childfree sub. To the people who said I'm not really childfree myself, baby you don't know me. I don't want kids. Cool Aunty for life! To the person who DMed me to thank me for "removing my crazy from the gene pool": you're welcome, baby. I hope you do the same.
