MEDIA ALERT: Charmaine on NBC, Childless-Childfree Couples



Charmaine on NBC

Charmaine will be appearing in a taped segment on couples without children.

She will be discussing the trend of couples who choose not to have children: Choosing to be Child-Free.


Childfree(vs. Couples who want children but can’t: Un-Chosen Child-Less.)

Interview scheduled hit time during the 6pm EST hour. Taped for the NBC Nightly News by the local NBC affiliate, so we don’t know where all it will air, or even exactly when.

Please tune in and let us know what you think.


Thank you (foot)notes:


Childless by ChoiceIf children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist?

Would a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation, as to spare it the burden of existence?

Or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood.

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)…As Alert Readers might guess…

from “Sufferings of the World” (1851)

    Jack, which side will she be taking?


  2. Looking forward to the interview :> If I had any realistic chance of a stable relationship, I would be joining the childfree myself. I would make a terrible parent, and I admit it.

  3. Pat patterson says:

    Did I miss when childless became an euphemism for barren, infertile or sterile?

  4. I think you did, as I have heard it used in that context quite often.

  5. Jack says:

    Johnny, which side in the childfree debate is Charmaine on?

    I dunno…It might depend, let’s ask the Penta-Posse.

    It might depend on how her day is going…

    Thanks for asking…son.

    (Now go do your homework.)

    “She will be discussing the trend of couples who choose not to have children.”

    Let me guess. More cluck-clucking and tsk-tsking over the horrifying notion that other people might make different choices than she did.

    I didn’t even watch it .. but I’m right, aren’t I?

  7. Is these a downloadabl clip of this anywhere?
