Happy

Hiroe Terryo!

Thank you to terryo and and hiroe  who are this group's new moderators! I have taken myself off, after I realized how much has been, and could be going on and I am just not doing what needs to be done to get here.

I will continue to post just as haphazardly and randomly as I ever have, and be glad to see it's in good hands.

Love to all!
Erica

Bad Moderator

Hello, my name is Erica, and I am a bad moderator.

I am so sorry. I have totally abandoned this group and I feel really bad about it. I was a single, childfree poly person hith no job and a lot of time on her hands when I started this group, and felt the need for there to be somewhere for other single, childfree poly people to complain or rejoice the way I did.

Since then, I went back to school, got married (to a man who has part time children. It hasn't changed my mind, but the complaining has to be kept to a dull roar. I may not like/want/need/accept children's exsistence, but that doesn't mean I want them to grow up to be self loathing serial killers hell bent on revenge either.) And life got in the way of my maintenance and support plans.

Someone else wandered over to my own journal ewysiwyg and let me know there was a spammer over here, so for that, I am very grateful. Please, do let me know when this place gets all cobwebby and spraypainted on, and I wil do my best to come back over and shoo out the vagrants. I may not live in this neighborhood anymore, but I have such fond memories of the place, and I don't want to see a meth lab go up. If someone else thinks they may even READ this journal even once a week, so they are better adept at mderating, I would gladly pass it along.

I'm a bad moderator. Accepting it is the first step. Changing that may be too many more steps than I am willing to accept any time soon. *is very lazy*

Hey - There's not often much activity on this list.. so.. um.. ~poke~

Hi there other cute poly childfree people!!

I was just wondering where other folks are hailing from and perhaps.. a bit of how being Childfree affects your being poly (or vice versa, poly affecting your childfreeness)? 

Hubby, Grrlfriend and I are all from the PA / Philly area. Hubby & Girlfriend are sterilized, i'm on BC and kinda naturally sterile because of PCOS (yay!)(kinda). 

Being childfree tends to affect the sweeties i look to date. I certainly won't have a Primary partner who desires sprogs, and thus far i've avoided having any sweeties with chitlins. I just feel that being a parent means your child is your Primary.. and if i'm getting involved with the adult, then by happenstance there will be a relationship with their child as well..and i don't need all that added in. 

Anywho.. Hi!  Chime in if you'd like to :)

No Kidding!

So, I may be late to the party here, but a couple of months ago I discovered a group called No Kidding! which is a social group that sponsers email and group social outings for adults who have never had children.  They do not discriminate against people who eventualy *want* children, membership requires only that you have not had kids yet.   

The first paragraph of their About Us page says:

NO KIDDING! is an all-volunteer, non-profit social club for adult couples and singles who, for whatever reason, have never had children. It is not a business or a dating service. We rely on all of our  members to volunteer some of their time to organize our activities. NO KIDDING! is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, business, organization or institution, does not engage in any controversy, and neither endorses nor opposes any cause. We are a social club -- nothing more, nothing less.

They have many local chapters.  I've joined the two nearest chapters to me, but they do not seem to be very active.  Other chapters seem to have more activity.  But I thought I'd let ya'll know about it if you don't already.

New Male Birth Control Pill

That's right, it's not just science-fiction or wishful thinking anymore:

http://www.rediff.com/money/2008/mar/28iit.htm

""We have been trying to develop a non-surgical male contraceptive for ten years now. The contraceptive works through an injection that affects the sperm's ability to fertilise. Simultaneously, we have also invented an antidote which guarantees its immediately reversibility."

I am looking forward to its full disclosure at this convention to more fully understand it's success rate and side effects.    

**UPDATE**

Thanks to a comment in one of the other places I posted this, here's a link for more detailed information of how it works.  A very, very simple explanation is that it electrifies the vas deferens so that sperm gets blasted apart as it travels through on its way out.

That's WAY cool!
