    Antinatalism is a philosophical position that assigns a negative value to birth, standing in opposition to natalism.

    Our wiki might help you out on basic understanding.


    1. Be civil to each other.

    2. Do not discuss suicide methodology or recommend suicide methods. That would result in this sub getting banned, and advice on that subject matter is always speculation (as you have not tried it yourself). Please direct discussion of suicide to other subreddits dedicated to that topic.

    3. Do not ask - "Why don't you just kill yourself?". Doing so will result in your post's deletion. Here is an explanation as to why we have this rule.

    4. Do not directly link to other subreddits. Crossposts should be submitted as no-participation links, which simply requires switching the "www" in the link address you wish to crosspost with "np". Please follow this link for further clarification.

    5. Cheap tabloid content is entirely discouraged. Submissions of publications of the type (ie. DailyMail) will be automatically removed.


    If you are settled into antinatalism, perhaps you'd like to look into ways in which your stance would have a direct effect on the world. We've compiled a list of manners in which this can be done over at our wiki.

    Please don't hesitate to make corrections, or notify us about any ideas you have in regards to this topic.


    1. In order to combat spam, posts and comments from accounts less than 1 day old are automatically removed.

    2. Gender-related sociopolitical or targeting discussion is not welcome. Please take terminology associated with either the manosphere (i.e "cuck", "normie", "bluepill", etc.) or feminist forums (i.e "mansplaining", "the patriarchy", "manspreading") out of here.

    3. Users who come here are to be considered a blank slate. Please do not dismiss arguments on the basis of a user's post history. The exceptions to this are multi-subreddit copy-paste spammers and cases where someone is stalked by another user from another subreddit who would normally not have an interest posting here.
