I have lots of thoughts on all of this. Trust me, I do. But I feel like it’s the same argument over and over again. We continue to pit women against women, especially mothers. I’m sick and tired of it. Stop throwing out half-truths, assumptions, and just plain, straight up bullshit and not expect people to get upset over it. Why the need to throw shade on folks when you don’t agree with their choices (that are not affecting you in any way whatsoever)?
Thankfully, instead of sitting down to write my own tirade about all of this, some fabulous folks have shared their thoughts, and since they mostly mimic mine, I’m now sharing them with you.
