Well, it's not really my own connotation, but a fairly well-defined (derogatory) usage in the Childfree community:

I remember poking my head into Childfree USENET groups and the like, before I had kids - it was a good way of knowing what types of behavior bother the piss out of other people.
Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono. Divorced, two kids (DanceGirl, 15; and PokéGirl, 12), two cats, one house, many projects.
Chops: My partner. Poly.
Xena: Chops' other nesting partner, Poly. Also in a relationship with Shaggy
Noa: Chops' other other partner (heh). Married, Poly.
Shaggy: Poly, in a relationship with Xena
Choplet: Chops' son
