r/Childfree is a place where bitter childfree (which is not the same thing as being childless, thank you very much) Reddit users can complain about all the baby pictures they're forced to look at on Facebook and unruly moppets they come across in real life.

The community's not terribly fond of children, to put it lightly - the moderators had to tell people that if they wanted to post screenshots of kids from The Sims being violently maimed, they'd have to go elsewhere.
Members often brag about the benefits of living childfree, like having more money, getting to travel, going out at night, and not being murdered by your own offspring. Sounds fantastic, right? Yet apparently they're also one of the most ostracized groups in modern society, on par with atheists (!):

The persecution they face manifests itself in various ways, including:
