The fastest-growing constituency in No Kidding!, the 27-year-old social group for childless people, isn't germaphobes or those who can't conceive. It's gay couples—the one demographic that, until recently, never felt any social pressure to procreate—says Laura Ciaccio, the organization's spokesperson: "Changes in their culture over the last decade have necessitated them joining because they feel ostracized in their community." With more same-sex partners adopting or conceiving with surrogates, their child-free peers are seeking solidarity. Talk about role reversal: As heteros reject breeding in favor of freedom and flexibility, gays are looking to build traditional families. —Brian Frazer
