CxC - Childfree by Choice — Faith Popcorn's BrainReserve Redefining Tomorrow’s Family The nuclear family is detonating “As American as Mom and apple pie,” the saying used to go. But now, a societal tsunami is underway, changing the way we see motherhood and questioning its primacy in the fabric of our culture. The U.S. birthrate has plunged to unprecedented lows: In the 1970s, 1 in 10 American women were childless. Childlessness is soaring across all racial and ethnic groups, with women as young as 15 knowing that kids will not be a factor in their future. “I don’t want children, never have. In America, the 2 million women who are bypassing babies are an ever more vocal group, with books, blogs, Facebook pages, and even drinking games: Swallow a shot every time someone says, “It’s different when they’re your own!” Millennial-focused media is just beginning to recognize this emerging mindset. Celebrities are popularizing and glamorizing this path, too. I don’t have time to raise a child - Chelsea Handler It's so much more work to have children.

What does normcore sound like? There was an episode of 30 Rock that aired back in February 2012, in which Jenna and her cross-dressing, sexually-omnivorous, trend-hunting boyfriend Paul find themselves settling into a sense of domesticity. They stay in, cook dinner at home, cuddle on the couch and abstain from having sex, all of which leads them to believe they've stumbled upon some perverted new fetish called normaling. In reality they're just getting older and regressing toward the behavioral mean. It was a pretty deft send-up of the type of cutting edge urbanites who think that everything they do is ipso facto “a thing” simply because they're the ones who are doing it. Consider how taking a trip out to IKEA to go shopping for furniture – just like a bunch of hilarious regular-ass people! That sense of normaling, or normcore as it's being called, was the focus of a widely-shared piece in New York Magazine this week, which attempted to put brackets around a moment in fashion. Go with the flow. Everyone does.

Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal I was standing in the main room of the house with Sonic – a young terp with a propensity to spike his hair - explaining to the mother why we were there. Yes, of course you can pick up the crying baby. No, we are not here to talk about your eldest daughter being so sick that she’s in the hospital, although that is awful. Yes, I want everyone in the house outside. Now. The previous hour had passed in a blur any Zoloft addict could appreciate. Sheik Stack-On-Me was in the process of bestowing upon me a brand new chai set when my dismount radio buzzed with want. “This is 1.” “Frago.” “But I’m getting my chai set! “Yeah … about that … we’re gonna have to ask you to come in to work tonight. “Raid? The vehicle cordon called set. I found two chairs in the main room and pulled them out to the patio. “I know nothing,” she responded to Sonic’s translation, automatically. “I will,” I promised. “I know nothing.” “We’ll see. Nevermind. “Hi,” I said. “What’s her deal?” “Ah. “With what?” “When was that?”
