  1. Rod,

    I’m usually with you on your thoughts on different topics. Even when I don’t agree you do such a good job with your argument that I respect where you’re coming from. I think you missed it completely on the mother’s day article though. Yes part of the problem was the title, but the real issue was when it was released. That kind of article can be put out any time during the year and when it’s done on mother’s day it’s click bate and just disrespectful to all mothers. I think Karen summed up the article best when she called it a “You Problem”.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying there’s no place for this kind of article. My whole problem is when it’s someones day and they get shit on. I’m looking forward to the day the internet respects folks enough to just let them have their moment without saying “what about me and my experience”.

  2. Karen, I was right there with you when you were talking about Mother’s Day and how some people don’t have a positive relationship or any relationship with their mother so they don’t talk to their mother on mother’s day and/or have an F*** you attitude…AMEN!!! — I know for myself I never had a good relationship with my mother growing up; so, when she left my dad/my sister and I my senior year of high school I was over her/all the drama and games. For me, I tried to be civil initially and that didn’t work; so, I just cut her out of my life because I didn’t need that negativity. I’ve spoken to her maybe twice in the last 8-9 years. And I’m ok with that–sure at times I wish I had a mother I could talk to about things but that’s not my reality. I don’t need people judging me or looking down on me because I don’t speak to her, especially on mother’s day … those people haven’t lived my life or walked one single step in my shoes and until they have who are they to judge me and the choices I make for me/my life (judge not lest you be judged). As for mother’s day in general, I believe society has been sucked into this mystical/t.v. version of what and who a mother is. Society is sucked into the whole Mom, dad and 2.5 kids living in a wonderful house with a nice yard and fence. my problems with that are 1) welcome to the real world where that is not everyone’s reality –not everyone has the “perfect” t.v. family and 2) society fails to realize there are so many types of mothers/ ways to be a “mother” out there that deserve recognition too. … You have the single mothers, the adoptive mothers, the lesbian mothers, the step-mothers, the “like a mothers”, you have women in relationships with single parents where both parents are very much a part of the child’s life but they are also stepping up to help with the child/child’s care because to them that comes with the territory of dating a single parent, you have the teachers or mentors that have stepped up and been that motherly figure for a kid that perhaps has a broken home or just crappy parents… there are so many different ways to be a mother or “mother” and it doesn’t always mean you’re married or you have birthed the kid(s). Personally I think anyone the contributes to the upbringing, wellbeing, nurturing etc, of child deserves to be recognized for their efforts (the same is true to all the dads -in whatever capacity they are a dad/”dad”- when father’s day comes in June).

    furthermore, good old Webster/the dictionary defines Mother as: [noun] a female parent. 2) a mother-in-law, stepmother, or adoptive mother. 3) a term of address for a female parent or a woman having or regarded as having the status, function, or authority of a female parent. 4) a term of familiar address for an old or elderly woman. 5) a woman exercising control, influence, or authority like that of a mother:

    This is all my point of view/opinion… some may agree and some may disagree — to each their own.
