Child Free: Feminism


[mood |happyhappy]

I've been a lurker for a long time, but finally a first time poster :). 

My name is Agatha and I'm from Toronto, Canada. I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto with an English major. I want to be a librarian in the future and I'm currently employed as a bookseller.

I proudly identify myself as a childfree feminist and I love the movement, despite its flaws. I believe that this community is very important and unique and that deserves a paid account (now that I'm showing off, but I hope that the discussion here will become more lively!)

I often frequent childfree, but I often notice, to my dismay, that the community is not very feminist. Some post are even anti-feminist: I noticed that majority of the blame for being a  mad parent is put on mothers and not so often on parents. 

I'll write on more it later! I'm so glad that I found this community and I would love to see it as active as childfree!

P.S. I encourage the mod to take advantage of all the cool new features!

I used to be on Childfree but then found Childfree Hardcore and I love it a hell of a lot more. Childfree seems to have gone to the breeders, (bastards, why the hell do they have to take over everything?!?).

I wish I could be a librarian, I just can't get past the effen math requirements.

...what kind of math requirements are there for librarians?

I'm going to second the invitation to try cf_hardcore for its rants and its informational content. :) Mainly because this comm is terribly quiet. Suppose I could start trying to remedy that, too.
