What's it to YOU?

Americans in general, are a nosy people, in particular the women. We feel the need to shove out ideals straight.down.the.throat. of anyone who DARES to think independently or has a differing opinion.

The points are not my thoughts, but the rantings I have heard in my exposure to the mom mafia, the women who KNOW everything better than you do. the stuff in this print is alll me.

You should;
Always have a vaginal natural birth.
Because, you know pushing a baby out your vagina MAKES you a mom. It's awesome if you can have a perfect delivery, but it's not always the case and making someone feel ashamed for doing what they believed was best for them, is sick. When I had a rant similar to this on facebook last week, a friend mentioned that someone came to her saying she was afraid to admit she had a csection. Are you kidding me?
Not breast feeding? Might as well sign little Timmy up for prison now, because he is DOOMED.
Stay at home/ or work.
Depending on what they do.
School you children the way they see fit.
Homeschool? You are raising social outcasts. Public School? Criminals and losers. Private school? Elitists.
Have a perfect house.
Wait you mean your house doesn't look like a magazine ad ALL.THE.TIME?
Be a perfect wife, or alternately be a bitchy wife.
I can't believe how many times I have been called out for not speaking ill of my husband.
Have 2 children.
You want HOW many kids? Are you not concerned about your carbon foot print? You are over populating the earth! Or you can NEVER love 5 kids as much as I love my 2. If you choose to have none, well clearly, something is wrong with you.
Be Christian.
In a country founded on religious freedom, it's terrifying that people feel the need to HIDE their religion, because otherwise you are doomed to the fiery pits of hell. While I consider my self Christian, having grown up around many different religions, I find it difficult to believe this.

That's just the beginning. Whether it's the food you eat, the car you drive, the house you live in, SOMEONE always has an opinion.

Do womankind a favor, unless someone ASKS your thoughts, SHUT UP. You think you know best, but the truth is we are all just doing the best we can.

We do no favors to ourselves by bashing, undermining, and hurting each other.

Thank you! What I can't believe is how many strangers come right out and ask me if I am breast feeding. Last time I checked my breast were MY business!
