This is a sister community to clucky that carries only one difference: Discussion is focused on issues and concerns of women (and men) over 30.

Paraphrased from the original clucky profile:
Confused by your body? Do you sometimes wish that you were barefoot and pregnant? Wanting to settle down? Raise a family? It doesn't matter whether you can conceive, whether you are young or old, man or woman. Whether this is just an unreachable or impractical fantasy that you keep coming back to.

If you find your mind wondering about the amazing possibilities of bringing another life into this world, then come here. Enjoy. Rant about your cluckiness without concerning your SO, friends or whoever. Even if you feel your biological clock ticking without your permission.

Frustrated with society's pressure to be a career woman? Angry that men are narrowly stereotyped? Trying to figure out why having kids is so undervalued? Do you feel drawn to the idea of throwing in your job and owning a house and have lots of babies? Irrational, wonderful, beautiful. Rant here, get it off your chest. Talk about your hopes, dreams and secret 'forbidden' desires.

This is a nonsexist, queer friendly community. We welcome singles, couples of any type (e.g. heterosexual, homosexual, queer etc...)and transgender people. There is no standards for wanting kids. Please respect other people's feelings.

Membership is moderated and open to persons over 30. You must have your complete birthdate in your userinfo to be considered. This is to keep discussion on-topic and assumes that maturity = civility. Be nice to each other here. Speak your mind while honoring each other's differences of opinion. There are other communities on LiveJournal for arguments and name-calling.

Note: Nobody in the USA or UK seems to know the term 'clucky'. Well, in Australia, the term is used to describe women who are experiencing mother hen desires. E.g. they are clucking like a chicken with her eggs. Like 'broody' or 'nesting'. It can be a positive or a negative term, depending on your situation. It can also be used to describe men or anyone else who desire a brood to look after. :)
