"Knowing that I may never have kids, I didn't quite know how to answer them without disappointing them or making them defensive.So I googled the subject matter, and found there were many groups of child-free people in my same boat, dealing with a myriad of child-free issues." In her book The Childless Revolution, author Madelyn Cain echoes Walters' sentiments.They’re looked at as so other than mother, as if they have career aspirations that overtake their desire for love or whether they’ve somehow delayed this idea, that collectively we all held up our college degrees and said ‘Let’s co-conspire not to have children until the very last minute of our fertile years.’ And of course, that’s not true.Just because love didn’t fit into that window that society expected of us, doesn’t mean that a) it won’t come, or that b) we’re making the wrong choice in waiting for it.
"I like kids," the magazine editor and writer tells Web MD, "but I can get my 'kid fix' from my nieces and nephews." As a response to societal pressures to procreate, she launched the web site Kid Free & Lovin' It in August 2007. "My motivation to start the site was the same for starting my book: I got tired of everyone assuming I would have kids or constantly asking me when I was going to have them," says Walters, now 46.Q: ‘Choice’ is such an operative word in all of this — people saying “You made your choice” as a kind of admonishment.
