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.

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
