Stupid Facebook

The "post this in your status if you love your kid" thing is grating on me.

1.I dislike it on principal. Do we really have to turn facebook statuses into email forwards? Really? Come on.

2. I get it. You love your child. But, do I have to be surrounded by "Before I knew you I loved you. Before I held you in my arms I adored you... blah blah blah"? I know people mean well. I know people love their children. But this syrupy cheesy statement makes me feel bad. It's like they are bragging that they have children in their arms. And I don't.

Then again, I'm taking crazy pills. So maybe I'm a little oversensitive.


  1. No..not oversensitive. It's stupid and annoying and hurtful. I agree with you 100%.

  2. You are not being overly sensitive. Those repost things on Facebook are just STUPID!!!!!!!

  3. Nope, not oversensitive. I'd say there are too many stupid/clueless people that think kids are the end-all-be-all reason for living and it's stupid.

    I'd love any kid we were lucky enough to have, but I'm not going to be discussing little junior with my every waking breath, since that's freaking annoying and STUPID.

    I also hate how folks just assume you have kids if you're over a certain age and start blabbing about theirs and asking about yours like it's a given as well. Just because women are supposed to be able to reproduce (hah) doesn't mean they can, want to, or feel like that's a valid topic of conversation. Idiots. Flaming idiots!!

    I do not define myself through my ability (or not) to pop out offspring!

    (I'm a bit bitchy today, sorry!)
