Yesterday a blog post popped up on my timeline a number of times. I try not to address political or religious posts because no one wants to or needs to hear my opinion. But this falls into a category that I cannot ignore – our children. Two friends who praised the post retracted it after they really read it but more friends shared and praised it. I wrote this parody, matching her points to my own. As I did I realized even more how twisted this mother’s approach and thinking was; miss-targeted, sexist, and manipulating all wrapped up in a cheery “but we really love you” tone of voice.
The following is not written in a way that I would address someone…. it’s horrible really, but hopefully the format better illustrates my point.
