    1-child families in this postmodern society while multichild families are still glorified and revered?

      Fear?  Hatred?  I think you're taking it a little too personal.  No one fears or hates a childless couple, although many are envious of the extra time and money they have.

      Nor do I see multichild families glorified or revered - my son has 4 and most people rather pity him.

        That response reminded me what my late father stated over 4 decades ago.  He stated that people routinely critiqued childfree and 1-child families; however, he stated that people actually derided and looked down upon families with 4 and more children.

          Well, I'd go along with "critiqued", "derided and looked down upon".  Not "fear", "hated" or "glorified".

          Mostly a matter of degree - you've blown it all out of proportion.
