Thank you for not breeding.

I have recently become a human extinctionist and supporter of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. That “silver snip award” icon you see on the right side is the award they give out to people who have made a commitment to not breed and want to promote non-breeding. Sort of like getting the fake award of being called a “father,” but without the whole “exploiting my very own little human being and having to pay for child support/a college fund for the next eighteen years” bit. So even though we’re both assholes, I still come out ahead.

If you also have made a commitment to be childfree, feel free to add the image to your own web page. It’s available here.

Here is an extra video for all of you childfree people:

    It is possible of course to have a child and not exploit him; and to be a father while also earning the title, possibly many times over.

    I respect your stand of course, but let’s not demean all parents.

    Don’t make me laugh.

    While I am committed to being child-free, I cannot in good faith endorse surgical methods of doing it. The reason is the very real problem of post vasectomy pain syndrome (PVPS). There are simply too many unanswered questions about the effects of the procedure. I’m not certain if female surgeries also have negative research but it is worth looking at before you make a decision.

    5% to 33% of men experience it and 2.2% of men “experience pain that significantly affects quality of life and causes them to regret their vasectomy decision because of the pain”. In the world of health that is a huge percentage and one I’m simply not willing to accept for myself. Besides, the pain is a pain that occurs primarily during orgasm! Imagine if you lost the ability to enjoy one of life’s major joys.

    I’m all for not having kids but bring on the pills (if they ever invent one for men, I’m there) and the condoms and keep your scalpel to yourself.

    My only question for Francois is how he feels that children can be handled in Market Anarchy/Mutualism, considering his opposition to parenthood. There is probably already an article on this site, but I couldn’t find it.

    I’m a human extinctionist, I am against having children period. I have further thoughts on the subject, but why go into them?

    Some day I’m going to have an imaginary kid and I’m going to name him a Good Night’s Sleep and No Shitty Diapers.
