Do you know what is going on in another Mammy’s mind?
Shut the fuck up. 😡😡
I am getting so sick and tired of keyboard warriors.
Actually. Let’s not call them warriors. “Warriors” carries connotations of strength and bravery and valiance and greater good.
Let’s rename them Keyboard cowards.
Because if you comment negatively on ANYBODY or their decisions, or their mistakes, or their ANYTHING… you are not a warrior.
You are a bitch.
And you are a coward.
This morning, a local platform highlighted a Mammy who left her baby in a running car outside a shop.
Now. We all know that this is dangerous and many may have been shocked or disgusted.
And that is fine.
Shock and disapproval, anger even, are understandable reactions to something like this. We’re all very good at disapproving something that we would NEVER do ourselves, aren’t we?
Should the “witness” or “onlooker” even have raised the issue in the media? Should someone’s mistake or decision be reported upon? Should it even be the topic of our conversation?
Well YES, actually.
Events like this DO need to be discussed, because we DO need to raise awareness of the frequency of such events. We do need to highlight just how easily a car can be stolen, or indeed go on fire, or how easily a baby can choke… We DO need to sometimes remind people of the DANGERS or possible CONSEQUENCES of their actions. We SHOULD be able to promote awareness and have conversation about things that need to stop; Not strapping kids in is a common one. It does my head in. 😠😠
But, we DON’T need to attack or judge.
Shake your head. Tut. Disapprove… These are NORMAL reactions.
But, if your reaction causes you to ATTACK and SLATE the morals, ethics, parenting and CHARACTER of the person, you are no longer raising awareness.
You are bitching.
You are attacking.
You are out of fecking order.
And if it isn’t something that you would say DIRECTLY to the face of the person in question, DON’T TYPE IT.
I’m not defending her.
But I’m not judging her either, because I don’t know her. I don’t know her circumstances. I don’t have any authority on parenting. I’m a disaster myself most of the time. 😅
If anything, I hope that if she HAS read the comments, that MAYBE she’ll think about the possible dangers of what she did…and I hope she’s OK.
Because Sweet Jeebus on a stick, people can be nasty.
Don’t be a Sanctimammy.
Don’t be a Keyboard Coward.
And don’t bitch about someone you don’t know.
Shnot nice. 😣😣
