Child-Free vs. Child-less (Terms argument)

Okay so I'm really trying not to attract a Friday llama but a friend and I keep going in circles about this and I need to make sure I'm using the right words. Especially if I decide to post something I've been working on bit-by bit about not wanting children.

I do not want children that makes me a child-free person. A person who wants children but can't have them (medical or otherwise) would be child-less. Correct?


She thinks anyone who is an adult without a child is child-less. I think the distinction is super important not because I enjoy being divisive but because those are two very different scenarios that get lumped together by those with children.

I've been reading Amy Poehler's book, and she sums up perfectly how women should be treating each other's choices. "Good for you. Not for me."
