* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has Peter Pan, who absolutely refuses to be a parent becuase that would mean sacrificing his carefree life as an immortal child. [[spoiler: He was allowed to stay in Neverland in the first place because he abandoned his son, Rumpelstiltskin.]]

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' we see a BadFuture where Doofensmirtz is in charge. It turns out to be the MoralGuardians who really pushed the world into dystopia, though; they decided that all imagination was dangerous and irresponsible, and since children naturally were imaginative, so were they. For everyone's protection they locked them away in cryogenic sleep until they grew up. The real implication is that it was entirely Linda's doing since it was a reaction to one of the boys' projects and we've seen that she's pretty much the only adult in town that doesn't know about them.

In contrast the alternate timeline Doof from the movie just instituted a curfew.

Added DiffLines:

* In a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1buybmnQ0nQ video commentary]], the TIME Magazine story "The Childfree Life" is observed by Creator/BishopBarron to focus exclusively on the private preferences of couples, as if choosing to have a child or not was like choosing to eat an apple or an orange. What the Bishop laments is not that couples aren't having kids, is that they aren't doing so because they value their freedom over the value of their community, their family, and the truth.

* Something like this seems to be the prevailing mindset in the movie version of ''Film/LogansRun''. Most people live carefree lives and don't bother with child rearing. Their "[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Utopia]]" has no family units, children are put in state homes by their "seed mother" and raised en masse. Francis notes that most men don't bother to hang out at the nursery to meet their children, and Logan [[PetTheDog (who is doing just that)]] declares that he's not so deviant that he's interested in meeting the mother. Is it any wonder a bunch of wild children went all ''MadMax'' and took over an apartment tower?

* [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] of ''WebVideo/ZeroPunctuation'' has repeatedly expressed his distaste for children in his reviews (possibly for comedic effect, it can be hard to tell sometimes), once comparing growing up and maturing to "overcoming [a] disability", and one of his ''ThreeWishes'' is for [[{{Squick}} "all child bearing wombs to escape from their owners and float off into the air like a cloud of greasy balloons"]].

* Rosa from ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' shows some shades from this mostly because her boyfriend left her when she was pregnant and left her with a huge loan she co-signed with him. She sometimes [[AbusiveParents hits her daughter]] and have been commenting on having trouble getting married because of Maria. She also feels conflicted in that while she loves Maria she is having problems liking her due to her interest in magic and her VerbalTic.

* In Mervyn Peake's ''{{Gormenghast}}'', the Countess of Groan side-steps the whole business neatly. Being formally presented with her infant heir (when they first met she would not have been in a position to fully appreciate him), she waves the proud nurse away with the imperious command
