A movement of women have decided not to procreate in response to the coming climate breakdown and civilisation collapse. Will their protest be a catalyst for change?
As soon as Blythe Pepino got together with her partner Joshua two years ago, she felt this overwhelming urge to create a family with him, she says. I think it was the fifth day after having met him, I said: Ive got to meet your parents. He was like: Youre mad.
Then, late last year, she attended a lecture held by the direct action group Extinction Rebellion, which set out starkly the catastrophic reality of the changing climate. That galvanised Pepino, an activist and musician (she is the former singer of Vaults, now Mesadorm), to do research of her own and, eventually, to have a series of sad conversations with Joshua.
I realised that even though I wanted to have a family at that point, I couldnt really bring myself to do it, she says. I had to say to him: I dont know if I can do this, considering what we know if there isnt a political will to fix this, we really dont stand much of a chance.
Pepino, who turns 33 today, found that other women especially those in climate-conscious circles were struggling with the same question, but were too afraid to talk about it for fear of judgment or ridicule. The US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave voice to their concerns last month, pointing to the increasingly dire scientific consensus and widespread government inaction: It does lead young people to have a legitimate question: is it OK still to have children?
