Why are those who elect to be childfree are DEMONIZED as selfish, narcissistic, and


even indulgent while those who have lots of children are IDOLIZED as giving, loving, selfless, and even exemplary parents of the year?

    You're correct in your premise. In our pro-natalist culture, there are still undercurrents of the idea that being childfree is deemed as selfish while having lots of children are seen as noble. However, such isn't the case at all.
