Until recently, the concept of being child-free was culturally frowned upon. People without kids were considered selfish, not "real" adults, and lacking in a necessary component of grown life.

Women without kids were looked at as spinsters and failures, and men without kids were looked on as irresponsible bachelors unable to continue their legacy. But the tides are slowly shifting, as more people have opened up about their choice to not have kids, and the intense responsibilities of parenthood have been talked about more honestly and freely.

This means the younger generation has a clearer set of options as they consider their future, and whether child-rearing is a desired part of it. Unsurprisingly, teens, are often apt to express their ideals in absolutes, regardless of what their future actually holds.

In a popular post on the AITA subreddit, the OP asked if they're wrong for telling their younger brother he's not "childfree."

They wrote:

AITA for telling my brother he is not childfree?
