Childfree Status as Gender Transgression?

A poster presented at the 2010 meeting of the National Council on Family Relations.

Cultural norms centered on heteronormative binaries of gender (male/female), sexuality (heterosexual/homosexual), and family (biological/chosen) prescribe that adults couple with/marry individuals of the other sex AND that they rear children together. Thus choosing to remain childfree could be viewed as a form of gender transgression.
